Pocket Rocket 2 is a new work By Ben Wilson created for the Power Of Making Exhibition at the V&A which runs from 6 September 2011 to 2 January 2012.
He collaborated with Neil Melliard to create a paint scheme inspired by traditional bicycle lugs, butting up to the hand fillet brazed steel frame it has 23 carat gold leaf accents to emphasize the workmanship that went into building the bicycle. The bike has 2 speed kick back brakes and to top it off, a Wilson/Roofer special Brooks saddle.
