Rock Solid Engines don’t just build and sell bicycle engine kits - we live for and love racing and this helps our team keep on top of the latest technology and improvements available on the market.
Father and son team, Tony and Joshua have directed all their experience and placed it into specializing in building motorized bicycle engine kits and small single cylinder alcohol motors destined for Junior Dragsters.
Rock Solid Engines has a reputation for being on the cutting edge of assembling racing engines and Tony and Joshua have developed and tested the best products manufactured for two stroke and four stroke engines. The same engine assembly techniques that Tony and Joshua have utilized in building race engines has gone into the design of Rock Solid performance parts and custom bicycle engine builds.
Tony’s love of racing has been a lifelong passion. In the 80’s he was extremely fortunate to join the team at F and M Cylinder Heads in Adelaide. With skills learnt working along side Frank Intini, coupled with crewing for numerous drag racing teams over the years, Tony had developed a wealth of knowledge about engine building, tuning and chassis set up.
Joshua has followed in his father's footsteps with a hunger and passion for all things mechanical and works primarily in the tool room. Joshua enjoys designing new systems to be implemented in all Rock Solid engine kits. Joshua is the creator of the Rock Solid Chainless drive system for our chainless bicycles. At the tender age of 14, Joshua amazed his school teachers with his exceptional talent and knowledge for motor assembly. He undertook Year 12 Mechanics in Year 9. Joshua has also completed a TAFE course for Certificate 1 in Engineering. This is a very proud achievement for Joshua as he struggles with sever Dyslexia. Now at age 17 Joshua had developed a natural eye for detail with his machine work and development ideas. Working with CNC machinery has allowed him to follow through with some great concept designs which he is in the process of developing and prototyping for implementation in small engines.
