Blue goes to Vegas...

 

"You either love Las Vegas or you hate it. Being a curmudgeonly sort not given to gambling or crowds, I’m in the latter camp. I try to avoid Vegas as much as possible. But then, earlier this year, Pete Pearson of Rocket Bobs Cycles was invited to be one of the builders in the illustrious Artistry in Iron show, held as part of the Las Vegas Bike Fest."

Gas'd Rat cover feature

 

"Con un Shovel de 1979 Rocket Bobs Cycle Works hizo una de las motos más admiradas del año 2013. Ha cosechado premios por igual en Gran Bretaña y en el continente con su exitosa mezcla de retro y anticipación. Su apariencia simple dista mucho de ser la realidad.

"You don’t have to be a dedicated custom builder to be inspired by a full-blown custom sled, and you don’t have to attend the biggest shows in the world to find something that speaks to you, that grabs your eye and forces you to look at it again, to trace the bike in front of you back through a hundred little cuts, grinds and welds that add up to the finished machine."

Gas'd Rat cover feature

 

"For many readers of this illustrious organ, Rocket Bobs Cycle Works might be a relatively new name, but, as is so often the case with the majority of people running specialised businesses within the UK custom world, it’s been far from an overnight success for Pete Pearson, the man behind the company

"Poster boy for OCD, all-Britain donut-eating champion 2006-9 and recently described by The Guarniad as a Cult, Pete Pearson is no stranger to these pages as he continues in his crusade to convert the world to twin shock Twin Cams."

"Some say Rocket Bob is a retired CIA operative. Others dismiss that idea as fantasy, reckoning he was – and may still be – with the NSA. Either way, he’s believed to have worked at the secretive Menwith Hill spy base near Harrogate in North Yorkshire, UK. Significantly, Rocket Bob and Pete Pearson have never been seen in the same room at the same time. Well, whatever the truth about Bob, the British town of Swindon has made a name in recent years for the upper class customs rolling out of Rocket Bobs Cycle Works."

Bad Boy Blackbird

 

"Rocket Bobs, eh? When I first heard the name I imagined a run-down bar way out in the Nevada desert near Area 51, with vultures circling overhead and the darkness inside sheltering a mix of tired humanity. Burnt out prospectors in sweat-stained baseball caps, semi-retired hookers and grizzled war vets, along with a handful of fugitives on the FBI’s ‘wanted’ list …"

Blackbird Feature....    "The Harley-Davidson Rocker model has been controversial since day one. Many custom builders who have customized it will tell you that the bike, more than many other Harley factory models, needs some heavy “redo” in its geometry to turn it in a very cool ride. At the same time, they acknowledge that the Rocker has a lot of hidden potential – I agree – and that the final result can be spectacular without affecting original mechanical and handling integrity"
