Cleaning up Speed Weevil for Custombike

We are headed for the Custombike show in Germany this weekend with Speed Weevil in tow. This is going to be the first European outing for the Weevil so we're excited to see what the peeps over the Channel think of it. If you're in the area or fancy a bit of a trip for the weekend then it really is a great show to visit;  it's huge! and it has lots of custom bikes to oggle over.  Add to that the beer, German Christmas market and Gluhwein and what's not to like?

Anyhooo, back to that cleaning... we really have to start building some bikes with a bit less shiny things on that need polished!

New trophy 'cabinet' in the shop 😬

Yeah I know, we should really get our arses in gear and get on with some work but we are finding it a bit hard to get back into the swing of things after the highs of Las Vegas Bikefest.  Soooo instead we spent a 'productive' afternoon sorting out our new trophy cabinet chain 😁😁😁

We think it looks real pretty, especially at night time, but sadly I don't think the master builders championship bracelet from Artistry in Iron is going to show up too well here.  Although it would at least keep it out of reach of the clawing hands of Lisa who is determined to crack the jewels out of it and fashion a necklace for herself!

Big bastard TP powered 3 Finger Eddy

Here's a wee throwback to one of our earlier builds, 3 Finger Eddy featuring a 4130 frame and a big bastard TP engine.  This is one nasty son of a bitch to hang on to but we love it and our next build is also going to be powered by one of these mutha's.  More details to follow soon.....

Patrick's Belgian build

Just got these great pic's in from Patrick, based in Ieper (Belgium), who has been very busy in the garage and done a whole heap of stuff to this bike including his own paint and finishes.

His Dyna is seen here fitted with the extended +70mm version of our Voodoo Fender, 18” rear with 200 tyre, LePera seat, V&H exhaust and Patrick's own air filter cover, license holder & shortened front fender.

We really do love seeing pictures of what you guys are doing with Rocket Bobs parts so please keep them coming!  You can see more pictures of our customers creation in our Customer Rides gallery on the website.

Rocket Bobs Girder front end

A sexy (if you like that kinda thing!) little shot of the Rocket Bobs Girder front end seen here on our most recent bike build Speed Weevil. Streamline section 4130 aerotube, internally sprung in headstock with all linkages 316 Stainless.

This is something we've been developing in our heads for some time now and couldn't be happier with how it's turned out.
