This Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade streetfighter is the latest and very eye-catching creation to be ridden in style out of the LA shop of custom motorcycle builder and former 250GP racer Roland Sands. The bike has undergone a rather unusual transformation for the supersport category and we can now call it a veritable naked as the full fairing was entirely removed and the top custom motorcycle builder brought in a 2006 Honda Hornet 600 headlight and cowl, while the clip-on handlebars are now replaced by wide, flat ones. It’s good that at least Sands kept the Fireblade’s original fuel tank, seat and rear section, although the standard number plate holder has been removed.
As you can see, this is not the kind of project you invest a lot of money in, but it has to have its fair share of performance parts and accessories, so a Vance and Hines CS One full exhaust system, and Performance Machine wheels, brake calipers, levers and crash bobbins do the trick just fine.
Tuned for charity, the Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade streetfighter only needed the magic finishing touch of the custom satin gold/yellow paintjob in order to blink an eye at the enthusiastic future owner.
