Default Rocket Bobs R13 Blackbird

i am just gonna fire up a bunch of pix,, this is a Rocker and has had a load of work with the frame, tank, forks, swingarm, motor, seat, electrics, etc

Yesterday it got 3rd place in the AMD comp, which sounds crappy til you know that only a few votes separated the top 7 let alone the top three!

So i am just so fckin stocked and would like to know what you fellas think of this build from us:

Sweet bike, like the look Couldn't find anyone to clearcoat it for ya

Just kiding, I haven't done a denim or soft paint job yet, you only paint what the customer wants and nobodys asking in these parts. Maybe when I paint the shovel

I've never had a call for a Mat finish yet so I've never checked into it. Love the look and the build is diffinetly awsome. Around here everyone wants things so shinny you can't even look at them in the sun. We're usually about 5 yrs behind the trends and if your innovative and try something new you just get laughed at

the Rocker has a couple of clips on that back plate to hold the OEM rear loom,, seeing as i had finished with all that shit i was left with two clips,, do i cut them off,, or do i turn this build into a bagger and store a tube of wine gums in there

the oil cap is billet, hard anodised and milled on through 3d,, its a complexe radial cut with a 1mm ball nose,, and at the moment i cant say anymore,, we are trying to sort it for our product line up on the new site

excellent work man it looks great!!!!!!!!

If I were gonna say anything negative (which I know I'll get flamed for).... it's that I don't like the yellow on the headlight shroud, I would matte the gas caps and I am not a fan of how the seat blends with the bike...............

so let the flaming begin.......

well i do fairly chrome and bling paint free bikes,, and i learnt from the last comp that you need something on it to draw in the eye..

the bright headlight was noticeable across the show

the gloss caps are awesome and i dig contrast,, flat would have been cheap looking, trust me

as for the seat,, well you are the first and probably not the last who doesnt dig it,, no worries,, there is no way you can build a bike that appeals to everyone so i dont even try..

i do what i like, everyone else can fck off

The shots SK8 has put up here don't do the Blackbird justice (not that's there is anything wrong with your photographic skills there buddy) - in the metal you'd all be getting a bit of wind in your sails. Went along to the show - awesome, an awesome build from RBCW

Dude that bike rocks!! I dig the seat into the wheel. What a killer stance.
Fkn killer look on the exhaust and dig the tips, very nice. I like the inlay on the wheels. The bars, the brakes all the little machining details that are yours ( risers, pegs, oil cap, air cleaner insert ect). Shit even little blinkers. . Just real classy and nicely done brother.

The best Rocker I've seen...it's on point. Everything about that Rocker, ROCKS! You've nailed the look on the Rocker and Dynas. Thanks for the pics...I can't stop looking at it.

Maybe one of these days my bike will have the Rocket Bob influence.

maybe a blackbird on the headlight might have tied it in better or a yellow screen over just the lens of a black light I kinda dig the boldness of the way it sits it just needs one little thing to keep it from looking misplaced

Well, Rocket Bobs Cycle Works never ceases to amaze me. From humble beginnings and a dream in an IT guy's mind it has become something really special.

This bike is friggin flawless. Nice job, ol bean.

All I can say is BAD AZZ sk8. I didn't get the yellow lamp until I seen the pin stripes, now I get it and dig it. The bike is front to back stone cold. Really dig the pipes, first I seen anything like them A-1. Dig the dash smooth. When you first look at the bike from a top view it looks as if the seats on backwards. You know what you did, I can't find a thing I don't like about it. Kudos man.

its a DLC coating (diamond like carbon)

its super strong and friction free so ideal for stanchions right through to cam lobes

Well it looks bad ass. I may have to see if you could find some tubes, coat them, and ship them. I dont know where in the US to get that done.

theres also more to it than that, you need to hone the stanchions and cut the lower damper holes off the tube as it has a plastic bush press fitted,, then coat then TIG back on by a welding god

so in the US you are looking for a race shop that specialises in suspension
