    Roland Sands has customized the R NineT and come up with an interesting retro-version of that bike using a number of parts and accessories that his company sells. But there seems to be a lot more to this bike than just bolting on farkles (like the paint job):

    I like it, but I would put on it an earles fork.

    Using an Earlers fork make sure the adjustment pin is in the correct place for Solo use. It might steer oddly if you have it set for sidecar use.
    The Earles fork would give it a more classic look. So would an elephant ear front fender.

    Zow, a thousand buck for valve covers? Must be waxed with the sweat of a goddess' breast.
