During the celebrations fot the Harley-Davidson  115th anniversary party, in  Prague, Pressure Drop, a lightweight, compact Street Racer by Rocket Bobs Cycle Works, was voted “World’s Best V-Twin 2018”.

The bike features a custom ultra-strong race frame which wraps around a JIMS 135” race engine and uses the Baker Grudge Box to put the power down through Rotobox (Slovenia) full carbon wheels. 

The rear end is controlled by a race monoshock custom built in the UK by Nitron; braking is handled by British made HEL race calipers at the end of the German made HC3 Magura hand controls. The bike weighs 420 lbs wet and “with a no compromise riding position, it’s quite a handful and not for the fainthearted”!
Pete ‘Rocket Bob’ Pearson took a year to design and plan, and three months to build the bike. “I was honored to be asked by Harley-Davidson to showcase one of our custom motorcycles at the 115th anniversary celebrations in Prague, and to take the ‘World’s Best V-Twin 2018’ award amongst such strong competition is an overwhelming experience”.

The jury comprised motorcycle builders, designers, engineers and Harley-Davidson representatives including honoured guests Bill Davidson (director of the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee) and Karen Davidson (Harley’s creative director).
