The central theme of the retro bobber is built around a hand-fabricated gas tank with monochromatic graphics applied on the fender and tank. The Rocketeer takes art deco design cues from the 1930s and ’40s and integrates them into a fresh interpretation on the classic bobber.

"Since the release of the Rocketeer, we have been gratified by the feedback from the enthusiast community," said Dar Holdsworth, Brass Balls’ BossMan. "The design, style and performance have been a hit."

The illustrated Rocketeer book is about 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.
