Talking Street bob with Rocket Bobs custom fender !!!!!!!!!!!!

My latest (and coolest) customization to my 2008 street bob is taking off the stock hd fender and replacing it with a badass rocket bobs custom fender. it all started with wanting to side mount the plate and rear tailight. but every chopped stock fender just didnt look right to me. so then i thought about filling in the holes on the stock fender. not a bad idea..but not so custom it changes the whole look of the bike. dont get me wrong..the street bob looks great stock..but i just like different stuff. i wanted somethin unique.so searching on the internet i came across the rocket bob blog...the fender was just what i was looking for..he hooked it up and made it quicker then i expected it to take. shipped it to New York and here it is! thank you to rocket bobs for always answering my emails and helping me out..this is my first bike AND my first time doing more then just taking something off and bolting something back on..and so far its coming along great! My tail light and side mount is courtosy of Fabricator Kevin..who also always replies fast and is great with help. Thanks to him too!


stock:



First i removed the old fender and struts:






Then i put the new lights and fender on loosely so i can get it even and run my wires.



did the wiring:



tightened it all back up and this is how it came out!!!!:















I am exremely happy the way it came out. once i get my lepera barebones seat and lower the rear a little it going to look even better!
oh and my headlight isnt on bc its getting powdercoated! thanks again to pete for all his help all the way from the other side of the world! i drove it even though theres snow outside and it feels great. its strong enough to support a passenger too...let me know what you all think!

That looks awesome and top notch craftmanship as always from Rocket Bobs....

But gotta agree that the rear needs some lowering to close up the fender gap....but doing so will change the handeling of the bike so respect it....

I'm so proud you've done a great job. To pull it into line like it looks on mine you only have to lower the ride 1".

If you get an 18" rim laced to your oem hub at the same time the handling remains the same

But way cool,, can you mail me higher res pix please for our site gallery

Bike looks amazing!!

For lowering i can recommend you following:

1. Lowering blocks (cheap and fast) OR
2. Progressive suspensions 11" 412 Shocks OR
3. Burly Slammer kit (front & rear) Most value for money

A fast and cheap tire mod i also suggest the 180 Dunlop SE Tire that fits right on the OEM rim.

Contact me for help where to buy the above, i give you directions where in US to buy.

Paul, D.C.C Sweden

Looks great, but I agree she needs to come down a bit, an inch will do.

ok well i found a good deal on progressive 412s 11" heavy duty shocks and ndrop in lowering kit. so after doing some research it seems as though it was the best value for the money. i paid for both what the shocks themselves retail for plus i had a gift card so it really cost me about 20 bucks! lol... so now my next questions is this....what do i still need to do to keep the feel of the ride realatively the same if not better... i know if i do the screamin eagle 180 it would help a little but should i still get the bigger rim..if i do that and keep my original hub do i need to get longer spokes? if do what size. i want this bike to look good but more importantly handle great..thanks for any advice bosken & sk8..tryin to make this bike as badass as it can be!!!

Sounds great with the Progs.

I recommend a bigger rim. Just get a 40 spokes 18" 5.5" rim, get the oem hub relaced and fit a 200 tire on there. Avon OR Metzeler. 200/50-18.

Like my old Bob... (80 spokes on there but i would not go there.. Keep your 40 hub.

While you are at it.. get the rim (and hub) powdered black....


My old Hydra bike... LOWERED 2.75" rear, 2" Front

yeah i was going to my rims black soon anyways so gettin the new rim may be the way to go.. will i need to get new spokes too or just the rim? can you reccomend where i can find one reasonably priced? id obviously need to get a tire and rim.. a 200 i think would look great on there..jus gotta ask rocket bobs if it will fit...will it?

New spokes...The lacer usually cut the old spokes, faster. Diameter differs 17-18 inch= longer spokes. But the HUB is the most expensive part.

I would recommend ebay OR the best: HD Wheels

I can answer for Rocket Pete Bob.,,YES 200, will fit !!

yeah way better and from a bad angle also,, are you using any shims in it ?? also those turns look sick but the struts are looking a bit grubby,, do you keep your hands clean when working on it??

ya know it says in the small print that you are duty bound to keep the fender kit clean and shiny at all times !

@mixtacy620 Looking good man! Same situation here, new to bikes. Got inspired by Rocket bob's work on Youtube. I am also waiting for my parts from Rocket Bob. They are AWESOME!

@sk8rod Your next project [if possible] is to mount the fender on the wheel arms, dead close! It should move up/down with the rear suspension, similar to the Rocker C. will that look too much or impossible..... hmmmmm

already do it !

the Pintail seat unit also has a thin mini black fender that mounts off the swing arm and so sits 5mm from the tire..



Flat out working on your order today,, its -4 in the barn and have to walk 2 miles to get there but its still a lot of fun,, first box should be out next week to you,, will mail you soon

ok,, the denim paint is Harley and it marks real easy so do be carefull,, its meant to be like a faded pair of jeans according to HD bull,, but to me its just a PITA !

the Struts you got are triple coated mirror black powder,, so they have been through the ovens three times!

This makes the coating extremely thick and durable,, you can hit it with cutting polish all day long and you will just get a smoother and smoother gloss finish

fades like a pair of jeans....now thats some good marketing..... dont get me wrong the demin looks sick...but the littleest thing scratches it...but i think the rear fender paint is more scratch resistant then the stock tins..could be nuts..

well what we do is powder the fender first and then hit it with Denim Black HD paint,, we have found that doing it over a powder base makes it more durable..

but like you say its a crap bloody paint and marks so easy,, i have panic attacks every time i package a seat/fender up and mail it off !!!

hey dizz i dont yet... im getting my hubs re spoked with bigger rims and my whole front end is apart and getting powder coated right now so the wheels are off..i wanted a more slammed look in the rear...i will tell you this tho...once i put 11" shocks on there it did lower it a considerable amount..this fender changes the whole dynamic of this bike...i saw on another post u were thinkin about doing something with your fender..i considered just chopping it but with tose long fender struts it just doesnt do much.....i see the look of ur bike (which looks really cool by the way)...the rocket bobs fender would definitly complete it. im hoping to et my stuff back from powder this week...as soon as it is all on im going to take alot of pics..if you get the fender and need help pete (rocked bobs sk8) is great..it was not a hard proccess at all if you take your time...i cant wait to get my bike parts back...waiting is killin me!
