Rocket bobs honoured with Vegas invite

Rocket Bobs has made history by becoming the first British custom bike-builder to be invited to take part in a prestigious competition at the Las Vegas BikeFest.

Pete Pearson of the Swindon-based company is now busy building a new bike for the 13th annual Artistry in Iron-Master Builders Championship, which will held during the 16th annual BikeFest between 29 September and 2 October.

Pearson said: “Only a limited number of builders are invited to take part each year and it is a huge honour to be included. I am looking forward to being in the company of those I have respected and followed for so long now.”

The annual invitation-only competition will include 20 award-winning builders who “have shaped the industry and who are establishing the latest trends in custom bikes and engineering”.

The bikes are judged solely by the master builders themselves, and the winner is announced on 3 October and presented with a cheque for $10,000 as well as a custom-designed championship bracelet created by renowned designer and master artisan Steve Soffa.

Rocket Bobs Cycle Works opened its doors in 2009. Since then the company has won the prestigious CustomBike show in Germany, been placed third in the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building and seen its parts sold in the popular Custom Chrome range.
