KTM 530 EXC café racer project by Roland Sands
Take a look at this radical ride and try to find any similarities with a KTM 530 EXC. Now that’s a challenge! But the comparison is justified by the fact that Roland Sands actually created this café racer out of the respective Austrian bike. The tuner actually brought in clip-ons and dual-colored KTM wheels (not seen in this picture) as well as a tank cover that is built from scratch. The reason for that is to retain the original tank and so keep the center of gravity low, which is what makes the bike so easy to live with on a daily basis.
Although it may look like a finished project, this is actually work in progress over at Roland Sands Design. But it looks great; in fact this thing looks just like a 1960s KTM café racer would have looked if the company would have ever made those.
