Roland Sands’ RenStar

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Based on the Yamaha Road Star, Roland Sands did the business on this piano bike for the AMD World & European Championship of Custom Bike Building.

With a 110 cubic-inch motor that has been worked on by Patrick Racing, the RenStar is not only capable of being a daily rider, but also capable of blowing away any takers at traffic lights. Around a turns might be harder though, with a 240 tire on the back, but hey…it looks good right?

The folks at the biker build-off didn’t think so, but we do. Pictures after the jump.
