The Rocketeer Debuts At AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building
Brass Balls’ newly designed and hand-fabricated gas tank embodies the central theme of the 2011 Rocketeer.
The introduction of the bike kicked off at the 2010 AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building. The Rocketeer takes several design cues from the 1930’s and 40’s and integrates them into a tight Digger Bobber, which delivers a fresh interpretation on the classic bobber.
Classic looks combined with cutting-edge American components provides a motorcycle platform that delivers outstanding performance, reliability and the elusive WOW factor.
The Rocketeer is an homage to Pulp fiction, which was published as inexpensive magazines from 1896 through the 1950s. The motorcycle captures the romance and danger of that era.
The illustrated Rocketeer book is a superhero created by writer/illustrator Dave Stevens. The character first appeared in 1982. The Rocketeer began as a comic then a movie and now is a custom production Bobber.
