High hopes for Rocket Bobs after victory in Verona

Custom-bike-builder Rocket Bobs hopes its run of awards success will continue at the upcoming Irish International Bike Show and the Custom Show Emirates next month.

Having tasted success at Artistry in Iron (Las Vegas Bikefest, 29 September – 2 October, 2016) and Custombike (Germany, 2-4 December, 2016), Rocket Bobs broke all records at the International Motor Bike Expo (Verona, 20-22 January), taking home three trophies including Best in Show for the Speed Weevil Bonneville Racer.

The Swindon-based custom shop also topped the Modified Harley-Davidson class with Gas’d Rat, which also won the editor’s award courtesy of Vibes Magazine from Japan.

This year’s Verona show (20-22 January) featured about 500 customs bikes, with 68 of them participating to the Custom Chrome Bike Show, part of the Motor Bike Expo.

Rocket Bobs says it is now looking forward to continuing this success with upcoming appearances at the Irish show in Dublin (3-5 March), the Custom Show Emirates (Abu Dhabi, 30 March – 1 April) and a return to Las Vegas in October to defend its Artistry in Iron title.?
