Happy New Year!!!

2016 has been quite a year filled with some good stuff and some pretty shit stuff.  But for Rocket Bobs at least, 2016 has been the best year so far!  We would like to send out a heartfelt thanks to all our friends & supporters who helped make it a record year. The next few promise to be even better!!! 🚀

We wish you all a very happy and prosperous 2017.  Now go drink excessive amounts of alcohol already....

Meanwhile somewhere in Scotland...

Rocket Bobs is taking a well earned break for a few days and are up in Scotland experiencing the culture 🚀.  It's freezing and blowing a hoolie outside but with a shelf full of beer and food who cares??  

Merry Christmas / Seasons Greetings / Happy Holidays to you all (or whatever you celebrate).  See you on the other side :)

Nickel plating

We've just made the trip up north to get Gas'd Rat's frame back from the Nickel platers and WOW!!!  They have just done such a crazy good job as you can seen in the pic. This is really going to make the old Harley Shovelhead pop.

Now all we have to do is try and get the bike re-built in time for MotorBike Expo in Verona at the end of January!  I't going to be a busy new year.............

Mini HamCan AC from LC Fabrications

We recently got these Mini HamCan AC's in from LC Fabrications in the States, and I fitted one today onto my own bike. These things are so cool and such high quality! We love them so much we are going to stock them in our shop 🚀 so if you think you'd like one on your bike then get in touch.

Speed Weevil in the studio

These are some of the first studio pictures of Speed Weevil coming through and they look amazing! Big thanks to Custombike Magazine and Frank Luger who shot them.

This detailed shot shows how Speed Weevil's frame is held together: T45 tube onto 316 SS slugs pinned with two 6.0mm inconel pins and lockwired in place.......

 and a lovely clean shot of the turbo....

How is that for one mind bending weld maze!

It's all making me feel a bit dizzy.......
