Chris Rivas has expanded the Rocket Cams lineup to now include the new Milwaukee Eight engines! With 4 grinds available there is a cam for every application – from mild to wild.

Chris Rivas Signature Series Rocket camshafts, are specifically designed for late model Harley-Davidson® big twins, with a goal of keeping high cylinder pressure for optimum power throughout the entire RPM range.  The Rocket Cams also feature the Easy Start centrifugal compression release system licensed by S&S® Cycle for easy starting even with large displacement and higher compression ratios. Developed from years of NHRA® Pro-Stock motorcycle, Bonneville land speed racing and street building experience ensures you’re getting the highest quality American made camshafts for your twin cam engine.

In the mid 1990’s Chris started drag racing a Sportster and was unsatisfied with the selection of available cams. In order to find the potential of his race bike the first Rocket Cam was created in 1996 and proceeded to obtain several titles and championships in AHDRA® drag racing. In Chris Rivas’ career he has not only raced at the highest level in NHRA® Pro-Stock motorcycle drag racing and land speed racing but has been very successful at both, setting and holding multiple records along the way. In 2012, Chris built the world’s first and only 200 MPH Bagger with a top speed of 204 MPH. More recently, Chris built the world’s fastest Dyna with a top speed of 244 MPH. His Rocket Cams technology has gone into every one of these bikes making them perform at the highest level that no other racer or manufacturer has been able to top. This is the same technology that goes into the street cams offered through Rocket Cams for the performance minded Harley-Davidson owner or performance shop in your area. In 2008, Chris and his wife Linda opened their own American V-Twin performance shop in Fresno, CA (Chris Rivas V-Twin). Chris and the talented crew at Chris Rivas V-Twin now builds record setting race engines and bikes for other race teams as well as offering general services for the every day street rider.
