Rocket Custom Designs out of Australia has done it again with another masterpiece. This time Trent Powell took a Hyper Assault XXL and custom painted it into a Vietnam Tribute bike for SGT Ted Jerome.
We love all the little details and the matte camouflage paint job used on the frame fork and handle bars. This is most definitely today’s Bike Of The Day!!
One of the hardest jobs I’ve had to do in the short time we’ve been operating.
Not because of the task, because of what it represents and how close to home this came for me being the son of a Vietnam Veteran.
It was an honor to be asked to do this one and it still hits home every time I look at it. ~Trent Powell/Rocket Custom Designs
