Back to Black - Harley Davidson Rocker C

Off to Basingstoke today with a van full of Harley Rocker.

This build was a bit of a challenge because the Rocker had already been lowered and the stock shocks weren't damping correctly, so we had to do a bit of fabrication to get a slammed look that still make the ride rideable.

We're very happy with the end result and anytime a guy says to you that you've exceeded his expectations with a build is a good day :)

One bad Rocker

Jeez, no posts for weeks then three come along at once!!

110" with heads, cans, race tuner and the awesome V&H full stainless competition pipe.  This blue Rocker was just too pretty for just how bad the motor was so we shot it with House of Kolor hot rod black, added a Rocket Bobs rear fender, handstitched gel seat and, of course, the stop/tail/turn rear Kellermanns.

Lower it and shorten the bars and you've got one bad Rocker.

Seen here next to an unmodified (but not for long!) Rocker:

What its all about

Here's a friend of ours heading into Dubai on one of the sickest Street Bob builds we've been involved in.  The bike is going to be featured soon in a couple of different magazines.  We'll post up some higher res. pics here at a later date.

We have a Customer Rides gallery on our website if you would like to see other examples of the Voodoo Fender and our other products fitted by our lovely jubbly customers.

Nightrain up date

Where the hell have we been for, like, the last month or so?? I know, I know, it's been awhile since we brought you anything new. What can I say? Life has been busy. 

Well, as promised way back in April, here's some more pics of the Harley Nightrain build.  First off a before pic:

The Nightrain is one of our favourite bikes ever produced by Harley but that rear fender is way out of proportion and detracts from the rest of the bike.  So this is something we here at Rocket Bobs have always been itching to have a go at,, and we finally had our chance :)

To show off the 200 tyre on this late model Train we went with an 8.5" fender, welded and shaped into two 10mm plate struts that were laser cut and fabricated in our workshops.  The frame needed some extensive modification to accept our mini set-up but, at the end of the day, we think it was worth it to turn this Nightrain into a hot little rod.
