Those boys in Southern California are at it again, as Roland Sands Design has taken on building a customer’s Ducati Desmosedici RR into a custom street tracker. According to RSD the lucky owner is Justyn Amstutz, and this zero miles Desmosedici RR is one of three in his stable. With 989cc 200+ hp V4 motor that revs to 16,000 rpm, RSD hopes to take Ducati’s beast of a street bike, and turn it into something that requires a steel boot to ride.
So far RSD is still midway through the project, fabbing up a sub-frame, welding together an aluminum gas tank, and putting some spoked wheels with flat track race tires on the Desmo. The team is still working on the tail section, and we’re very curious to see how the bike comes out. It’s not like we have $72,500 Desmosedici at our disposal to even consider a job like this (motorcycle blogging doesn’t pay that well), but we like to dream. Hopefully Roland Sands Design will keep us updated with the bike’s build progress, and include LOTS of photos.
