Making the Field…

For the release of the Indian Scout Sixty, Roland Sands made not one but five flat tracker incarnations.

The engine is the stock 1000cc with an RSD custom stainless steel 2-1 exhaust. The tank also remains as stock but a new rear subframe, tail and seat have been fashioned from aluminum and carbon fibre. While plastic number plates have been used.

The triple tree has been adjusted for a sharper steering angle, and a modified RSD Softail fork brace added. The front forks get 100mm spring preload spacers and 20 weight oil and Triumph gaiters were added from British Customs.

The bars have been swapped for 1″ to 7/8″ flat track bars, 1″ risers added and Renthal MX grips are used. The foot controls have been relocated and the rear gets a Free Spirits XR1200 belt tensioner.

Roland Sands made prototype 19″ flat track wheel sets in both spokes and cast for all the bikes and fitted them with Dunlop DT3 tyres. While the rear brakes are kept as stock, the front calipers and discs have been removed in true flat track style.

All five of the bike were finished off in their own liveries of red & black with white detailing, all black with white detailing, black & white, red & black with gold detailing, and black & gold.

To show them off, they used a deserted San Pedro warehouse down by the docks, cracked the throttles, let the exhausts rumble, and the rubber burn. The finished creations can be seen in action at the Superprestigio of the Americas and AMA Pro Flat Track Finals.
