Roland Sands Design builds bike for Mickey Rourke
Mickey Rourke bike by Roland Sands
Roland Sands: "When we successfully take the long way, we realize we would not have changed one single thing about the way we went, even if it took us much longer than expected. We realize there is a reason for everything and we appreciate all we have learned. Eventually, we even understand that we didn't take the long way, but rather we took the only path we could."
"Slowly the pieces trickled in. The finished body is assembled onto the skeleton. The skeleton becomes flesh, tendons and muscles grow and the form of a finished product begins to take shape. Thank you Chris Wood for the beautiful pearl white paint."
All that glitters is Gold. We started off going rustic with Mickey’s bike, but it’s turned into something much more finished and a bit experimental. After a visit from Mickey a few months ago we decided to go with satin black on pearl white flake paint and over the top Gold and Black finishes. All the gold accents went on the gloss black motor and our first set of two tone anodized black and gold Boss wheels arrived. It was very cool seeing all the parts come together, but there’s still a lot of work to do to finish it.
