RSD Custom Indian "Track Chief"
We built this bike for one of the owners of the last iteration of Indian before they sold to Polaris. He'd owned a few custom bikes and had a lot of problems with them. For this bike reliability was a top concern so we took a lot of care in making sure it retained stockish elements so it would start every time. The wiring loom was a big problem, but we had some underground help from Indian to strip it down to the essentials.
Our stock style BMW NineT continues to evolve with the addition of a paint job and some cast bronze RSD logo’s for the gas tank by local artist and creative Nick Potasch. We consider this bike to be a test bed for ideas and product development so we’ve made an oath not to cut anything off it or modify it past what an averages set of tools would allow you to do. The cool thing about the bike is it continues to feel like a blank canvas. Were already thinking about the next iteration.
RSD Dyna Ripper
Our obsession with the Dyna continues with our latest version of the Dyna Glide built for the Hot Bike Power Tour. It’s always a challenge to evolve each bike we build. This Dyna was no different as we built a newly shaped tail section and gas tank along with a new version of our FXR inspired side battery covers.
RSD Del Mar Softail
The Del Mar Softail is an homage to the original Go Left Fast Track in Southern California, the Del Mar Mile. Its racing stance is inspired by bobbed big twin racers of the past, but with a modern twist. When in doubt, GO LEFT!!
J&P Sportster
Some said I was just doing what I was built to do. They’d say I was strong, made in America with American hands. That I could handle just about anything and to tell you the truth I did. And if you’d of told me I was going to get a complete redo I wouldn’t of believed it. But I’m living proof, anything can happen and it probably will.
