RSD Custom Indian "Track Chief"
 
Perhaps we're old fashioned, but in our minds a proper Indian is a racer. Purpose built competition machines utilizing only the barest of necessities were how the most beautiful bikes we're created. The board trackers, hill climbers and flat track racers of the 20's, 30s and. 40s are stunning. And there lies the challenge.  How to deconstruct a superbly engineered modern day two wheeled car down to only its necessary guts. We've spent time on all three of modern Indians and the full body Chieftain is a supreme choice for those who want to ride from California to NY and pack the kids. It's nimble for an 800lb bike and if you’re looking for a modern full-fendered Chief of yesteryear, this bike is your Huckleberry. Bluetooth, cruise control, USB, navigation, etc. To say the stocker feels like a “metric cruiser” is both a compliment and a concern. But that motor.. Yeah, It's a good looking lump.

We are proud to announce the unveiling of the BMW Concept 90 today at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in beautiful Lake Como, Italy. This year is the 90th anniversary of BMW Motorrad and the 40th anniversary of the R 90 S. This bike pays homage to the Daytona Orange boxer from the Seventies.
 
 Mickey Rourke Build
When we successfully take the long way, we realize we would not have changed one single thing about the way we went, even if it took us much longer than expected. We realize there is a reason for everything and we appreciate all we have learned. Eventually, we even understand that we didn't take the long way, but rather we took the only path we could.

The RSD Desmo Tracker is finally finished, tested and thrashed just enough to ensure she’s ready to do battle on the streets of San Diego. The Desmo Tracker was a difficult build in many ways. As you can imagine digging your hands into the Mona Lisa is not done without a measure of respect and reserve. But this is how we approach most of our builds as we attempt to retain what is best of the original design and to explore ways to improve or change the function of the machine in a way the new owner would like to enjoy his machine. The words Moto GP and Dirttrack couldn’t be further from the other in terms of function and aesthetic on two wheels. Our job was too blend the two into something that could be at home on the show room floor ready for public consumption with a push button starter, comfortable egro’s, street and dirt worthy suspension, lights and 180 plus horsepower on tap. We feel we have obtained that goal.
