American Chopper Live Build-Off Between Jesse James, Paul Senior And Paul Junior. Who Should Win?

In advance of the 2-day TV event (Episode “Chopper Finale” December 5 at 9 pm when the 3 customs will be revealed, Episode “Chopper Live” December 6 at 9 pm to vote and see the winner), the Discovery Channel wants to know who SHOULD win this 3-way build-off.

My opinion, and yours that I know via your former comments, is that Jesse James WILL and SHOULD win. But it’s only the opinion of the true custom motorcycle industry, individuals and professionals reading me, but not necessarily the opinion of the TV public at large, not necessarily bikers, addicted during years to the duels between Paul Jr. and Paul Sr. Want a proof of what I just wrote?

The Discovery Channel, right now, let you vote on their website by a simple click on “who you would like to win”, and shows you at the same time the current result of this on-going poll. Surprise, at the time I upload this post: 1% favor Senior, 61% Senior and 38% Jesse James. Really? Only 38% want Jesse James to win? I don’t know, but I would be you I would make a short digital trip to American Chopper Live- The Build-Off to express my voice/opinion. Just let see how you & me together can influence a custom motorcycle poll.

    I voted on the right side…

  3. 3 Jason Nov 11th, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    Cool you do this Cyril. Very cool. Power to the real people.

  4. 4 Kate Nov 11th, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Jr is a head because his “fans” got this sweet little inspiration
    . Such heartfelt enthusiasm, right?
    Mr James will never be as sincere . A+ for effort though!
    😉 Thanks to all our Veterans

  5. 5 Kiwished Nov 11th, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    I don’t know why Cyril even bothers with these build offs? It’s not about bikes but who you all love to hate. I really think you should ignore silly TV reality shows and the personalities it brings, its NOT real folks..

  6. 6 live2rideaglide Nov 11th, 2011 at 3:38 pm

    Most are voting against Jesse because they think he is a scab for cheating on Sandra. He may be , but that ain’t what it’s about it’s about building a cool chopper.

  7. 7 Fred Nov 11th, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    The typical “Smerican Choppers” fan knows little if anything about bikes. Even less about actually building one. The bike from Jesse’s team will be way over the head of the typical OCC/PJD fan’s head.
    OCC/PJD will build something that can be ridden on and off a trailer and around a parking lot. Jesse will build a bike that you can actually ride.

  8. 8 Patrick Henry Nov 11th, 2011 at 3:54 pm

    We know it’s only a show for audience & money. Still, we would like the Teutuls to go away.

  9. 9 Q-Ball Nov 11th, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    I can’t believe Jesse despite his flaws, and need for cash would lower himself to do this. Have you ever looked closely at Jr & Sr bikes. Oh well, art is in the eyes of the beholder, and someone needs glasses.

  10. 10 Kustoms and Choppers Nov 11th, 2011 at 4:00 pm

    I have to go with Jesse but I say throw Cole Foster in there and make it a 4 way build off.

  11. 11 Q-Ball Nov 11th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    PS, Kate I thought Jesse little video was a hoot.

  12. 12 Fred Nov 11th, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    Q-Ball, why do you think Jesse needs cash? People who are broke don’t buy 2 million dollar houses in Austin, TX.

  13. 13 Kate Nov 11th, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    Cyril could maybe interview Jesse for this “build off” he’s doing. He could ask if Jesse needs the money !! He could all so get the history behind Jesse challenging the OCC guys to a build off 8 years ago. 🙂 Thats an idearr huh ?

    I know he’s busy, he’s gotta pre-run the baja1000 soon. He’s got the #1 start in his trophy truck next week.

  14. 14 chopmonster66 Nov 11th, 2011 at 4:56 pm

    Still say ,Jesse has more talent than both of them other guys put together .

  16. 16 Fluke Nov 11th, 2011 at 5:35 pm

    Free Billy.

  17. 17 ImagineThat Nov 11th, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    American Floppers is still on the air? I am surprised anyone with half a brain still watches,I am honestly surprised about that. Jesse will build ,(seems how the other two can’t they just put together others parts) A superior bike then the Dutels.

  18. 18 T Nov 11th, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    How many times do you watch the end of a build off and the whole crowd has it wrong?
    We are watching “Real Housewives of Whatever” only the characters are a little more familiar,
    Junior, Senior. Jessie……………. Cartoon characters for our entertainment.
    Nothing more…………………

  19. 19 Manhattan Choppers Nov 11th, 2011 at 6:03 pm

    I would put Billy (soon) Chica,Keino,Matt against them anyday.. No disrespect to Rick who is greatly underated, unreal fabber. Go JJ, lbc, cfl, por vida..

  20. 20 Manhattan Choppers Nov 11th, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    RIP Johnny Chop,Larry,Jerry Graves…

  21. 21 Nobody Nov 11th, 2011 at 6:29 pm


    “Survivor” is still on the air.. Is it really surprising that American Train-wreck is still on?

    Jesse’s at 41% as of this post

  22. 22 Henry Canup Nov 11th, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    I just hope Jesse made some extra money by building Sr. and Jr. a frame instead of them sending off for one.

  23. 23 Irish Rose Nov 11th, 2011 at 8:30 pm

    The only reason Paulie is even winning the polls, is because a lot of fans who have no clue about the industry. These are the people that think a kick start is something that happens at the beginning of a football game. As I understand it, the official “winner” will be done by fan voting.

  24. 24 FXRocket Nov 11th, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    As a Professional Tech in the motorcycle industry.. ..Jesse has skills to win if it was just on skill and not popularity… but its going to be a popularity contest …. there should be Industry Judges along the mix ….heres my choices Cyril, Arlen Ness and Chip Foose?

  25. 25 Gas Man Nov 11th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    Why are we having a popularity contest? This is stupid.

    Aren’t they building new bikes just for this build off? If so, why aren’t we waiting till then?

    Oh I know…

    Pick me



    Because Discovery wants to rev up it’s marketing and ratings for the show. Oh goodie! Let’s all go and join in on all the fun!!!

  26. 26 Jason Hallman Nov 11th, 2011 at 9:08 pm

    There are simply too many women that want to hobble Paul Jr (like Cathy Bates in Misery) for Jesse to win. Jesse never played to the female audience and women don’t “get” him. All they know is that he got caught cheating…it is nothing more than a popularity contest for fat white girls.

  27. 27 Eric Maurer Nov 11th, 2011 at 9:09 pm

    damn people…. its just TV, who really cares who needs money, who doesn’t, etc. Its reality TV with a theme that we all can relate to. I hope everyone has fun with it, builds a cool bike andd provides some great (scripted) entertainment for sure.

    Having said that, I’ll watch for sure.

  28. 28 Grey Beard Nov 11th, 2011 at 9:15 pm

    Yep….. did my vote.
    Voted for the builder thats been an iron worker and into bikes longer then any of the three.

  29. 29 kc cheef Nov 11th, 2011 at 11:23 pm

    I find it quite easy to believe the common folks watching the build off consider their opinion as valid as any one else’s.
    Not all of us are lucky enough to live and ride and build as we want.
    But most of us are savvy enough to KNOW what we like the looks of.
    Aren’t most ”custom bikes” lookers rather than riders anyway.

  30. 30 Wiz Nov 12th, 2011 at 4:10 am

    YAWN….Who gives a RAT’S ASS!!! Wiz

  31. 31 captmike Nov 12th, 2011 at 7:24 am

    The guys who run cable TV networks don’t even know yet that the day of the custom chopper is gone, long gone. Kind of sad, really, to see people be that out of touch. We’ve moved on to bikes you can actually use, like dual-purpose, adventure tourers. flat track throwbacks, cafe racers, classics/vintage, great standards and baggers. Get with it, you guys — choppers are so, so 20th century!

  32. 32 Boss Hawg Nov 12th, 2011 at 7:43 am

    The “Vanilla Gorilla” will win and has our vote.

    Like my sweetie says, size does matter…she is voting for Jesse no matter how many gals he has banged and she says Jesse he can spank her anytime he likes. If you don’t like that go eat some Cisco Burgers!

    Boss Hawg

  33. 33 DJ Nov 12th, 2011 at 7:56 am

    Who cares what Jesse did or did not do to Sandra… She wanted a “Bad Boy” and that is what she got.. He is a biker. She should have went and got her a church boy.. .Any way… As a guy who did benefit from the first “chopper” craze in the early 2000’s(Discovery and Jesse mainly get the credit for) I hope we get another surge… I can use the extra money from the RUBS and Yuppies

  34. 34 ROGUE Nov 12th, 2011 at 9:09 am

    I like Jesse but I will not be watching the show.
    I will go for a ride on my motorcycle instead.
    I would hope that some day that they will do a show to teach people in detail how to work on their own motorcycles. A Tech Article on TV one that goes into all the details like torque specifications, special tools, etc.
    Of course this show is about entertainment and not really about how to build a motorcycle.
    Oh well to each his own, we all have different priorties and there is nothing wrong with that

  35. 35 Ga Red Dirt Nov 12th, 2011 at 9:36 am

    All this and you have not even saw the bikes. I do not see how anyone could say the Teutels have not built some good looking bikes. Is this one of those class envy things because they have carried it out of and old gas station and made a big businees out of it? Looks like they employ alot of people for that reason my hats off to them.BTW who wants to watch a TV showing the torque chart on a motorcycle? I think Discovery is in the business to turn a profit not to put everybody to sleep.

  36. 36 Grey Beard Nov 12th, 2011 at 11:08 am

    Ga Red Dirt
    I agree with you.

    For anyone to say the Teutels are not builders or artist in the bike building industry, has tunnel vision, a shallow outlook on the industry. They knew to stay alive in the industry, they had to be versitile. They’ve built from one end of the spectrum to the other in the chopper and custom bike industry, from building old skool choppers, street bobbers, long bikes, trikes, theme bikes and even a speed record breaking electric bike. The Teutels bike building is like the fashion industry, sure there’s some gaudy bikes, but there is something on one or more of their scooters that appeals to a builder that they might incorporate it on one of their bikes.

  37. 37 chop thug Nov 12th, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    jesse, without a doubt!!!!

  38. 38 nicker Nov 12th, 2011 at 8:56 pm

    And the winner is:

    “…Cafe Racer, the series on Discovery HD Theater…”


  39. 39 jesse monygomery Nov 13th, 2011 at 6:19 am

    I Vote for paul Sr.

  40. 40 Hondo Cat Nov 13th, 2011 at 9:08 am

    I read on the Salinas Boyz facebook page that Cole Foster is helping Jesse James with his build.

    No contest with those two working together, but then this IS a popularity contest for the general public.

  41. 41 Chop Nov 13th, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Who Cares…………When Junior & Senior visited “DOWNUNDER” they lost nearly all there fans and/or respect due to there ego’s & attitude……..BUT as for the BIKES on DISPLAY the did look like they were thrown together in little time ( rough as guts with no attention to detail ) compared to The Master Jessie, where I could fall into the detail and craftsmanship of his builds I viewed in Long Beach a while Ago. Maybe a NEW series with Billy Lane v Jessie since Indian Larry is no longer available.

  42. 42 Darren Nov 13th, 2011 at 2:53 pm

    Like I said…the three of them combined, are not worth shit…not even worth the 41 comments…and believe me, i make this statement based on facts…

  43. 43 bigalyts Nov 14th, 2011 at 8:33 am

    This is not about anyone being broke! Cause no one is broke in this competition,for sure,and least of all Jessie. He is probably worth 6 zero’s more than anyone reading this Blog. Imagine having 1/2 of Sondra’s money since they have been married? Millions and Millions in the last 5 years! He got more than Sr. and Junior. It is about exposure and Ego’s and Viewers and advertisers. Listen don’t count on PJ or OCC building Trailer Queens, they build Bikes that you can ride.

  44. 44 Rick Peyton Nov 14th, 2011 at 9:48 am

    I agree with you, Rogue. I would definately like to see a show that actually shows how to do thigs to a motorcycle. Or a “This Old House” style show but with motorcycles. Show them taking a motorcycle and rebuilding it or cutomizing it. No bullshit. No drama. Just a real show. But then the mongoloid TV viewes of the world would have no one to cheer for or love to hate. I like your idea. Lets all just go for a ride.

  45. 45 Vince Nov 14th, 2011 at 10:06 am

    Who you want to win? Which bike is best, not who you like.

  46. 46 Darryl Briggs Nov 14th, 2011 at 10:49 am

    Wow, someone “Should” win without us having seen the bikes yet. Maybe we can get some football predictions going on this site as well.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m no fan of theme bikes and what Jr & Sr produce. But lets at least let them produce another piece of crap and actually see it before we start stating Jesse should win…..

    I wonder if Jesse will make a Sandra Bullock tribute bike…… Hmmmmmm…..

  47. 47 David D Nov 14th, 2011 at 11:18 am

    My comment got deleted from Discovery. Let’s do a build off with only Jesse, Sr. or Jr. working on the bike and see who completes the bike? Jesse is the real deal doing the sheet metal, painting, fabrication all on his own.

    Or make the guys complete a 300 mile run on their bike? lol.

    Discovery is also slamming the deck in Jr’s favor only showing Jesse’s old school rigids. What about the motorcycle Jesse built with the airplane motor? Or the Airstream themed bike and side car.

  48. 48 Manda Nov 14th, 2011 at 11:55 am

    Well, this chick must be in the minority. I dont give a fat rats ass who Jesse sticks his weenie in. I love his work, his bikes are phenomenal functional works of art. Comparing a Jesse bike to a PJD or OCC bike is like pitting a street legal outlaw drag car against an old mans 57 chevy trailer queen. yeah, the trailer queen looks pretty and shiny, but can you race it on Sunday, then drive it to work all week? Heavens no! It might get dirty. Once the teutels stop buying their bikes in kits out of catalogs and suing each other, maybe then I’ll give a crap about them. Until that happens, theyre just tity babies playing in the big kids playground. Jesse should win, but sadly the corporate and fat white chick vote will go to jr. Cause he’s “cute”. (since when are beady eyed ratfaced pricks cute?)

    Love, Amanda

  49. 49 Niki Morbid Nov 14th, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    Another chick here….. Who cares who Jesse dates… He’s an amazing builder.. and always will be!!! WCC FOREVER !!!

  50. 50 DATAR Nov 14th, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    JESSE going to win, but those not do anything.
    JESSE JAMES is a god in this compared to american chopper

  51. 51 Caro Nov 14th, 2011 at 1:54 pm

    And the winner is: Jesse James, because he’ s the best!!!

  52. 52 CHUCK Nov 14th, 2011 at 2:01 pm

    If you really want to know who the better builder is ? Have a completely in secret bike build. Give each contestant 30 days to build and have an INDEPENDENT ship and set up the displays. Have NO indications in the displays of WHO built what bike.After ALL the popular votes are in and counted and the winner announced( by means of( THE RED BIKE WON< OR THE YELLOW BANANA BIKE WON) then have the builders show up and stand by their bikes.
    This way there would be almost 0 favoritism because the PEOPLE would be voteing by what the SEE and NOT by who they like!!!


  53. 53 littlefeather Nov 14th, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    I think that Jesse will win hands down no problem- but they should do like all the older bike builds and ride them after- say about 500 mile round trip- then you will see whose bike will hold up without falling apart- Jesse has this win easy…..

  54. 54 Kustom Guy '54 Nov 14th, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    These shows are mainly based for popularity so the companies ( tv channels) can make money off of advertising. Everybody who actually builds stuff knows this. These shows are also aimed at the same forum trolls that bash other people’s builds, yet will never get off their asses and build something themselves. This is why America is falling behind, because people would rather sit and nitpick than get up and do something…But I am behind Jesse 100%

  55. 55 HDVooDoo Nov 14th, 2011 at 3:56 pm

    Jesse hands down, a true bikers builder!!! I bet Jr. and Senior could make it 200 miles in 2 days on their bikes!!!

  56. 56 SLIMNSHADY247 Nov 14th, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    Hands down Paul Jr!!!!!!! Does Jesse James even build bikes anymore because i haven’t seen it. Paul Sr has built very few bikes with his own idea’s. Jason Pool is the one who design’s them now on his comp. Atleast when Jr was there he told pool how to draw it and how he wanted it to look like.And put his own inventive idea’s into the bikes.

  57. 57 Bansheeboy1982 Nov 14th, 2011 at 7:47 pm

    It’s a toss up between Jesse & Jr.

  58. 58 Ga Red Dirt Nov 14th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

    It is funny that all the people on here proclaim not to watch American Chopper sure know alot of details.

  59. 59 OG Nov 14th, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    JJ is a real biker, he is gonna kick their asses then bang their ol ladies!!!

  60. 60 Mouth Nov 14th, 2011 at 10:28 pm

    Are u people ignorant?? Paul Jr. Is a modern day visionary and a savant of art and metal work. If anyone honestly thinks that Jesse james or Paul Sr. have a chance then you’re an idiot… Noone on the planet can compete with Paul Jr. Period

  61. 61 Mike Mays Nov 14th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    Jerry Graves should have gotten a chance to compete against these fine bike builders. Graves custom cycles would have kicked ass ! RIP my brother !

  62. 62 Mike Mays Nov 14th, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    WSith that said, Jesse James blows them all away !

  63. 63 Alcohtraz Nov 14th, 2011 at 11:53 pm

    @ Mouth… Tell me your kidding… Feel free to point out the frame jig in Jr.s shop cuz i think i missed it.

  64. 64 Tyner Nov 15th, 2011 at 3:18 am

    I see PJr taking the bikes to a whole new level… I think PJr has the most heart and it shows in his work…. He is focused and real… JJ needs tO grow up and act like a man … He lacks honer … And his designs reflect that…. Thats a fact … Looking forward to the battle on the 5 th

  65. 65 Kustom Guy '54 Nov 15th, 2011 at 7:40 am

    Mouth? Seriously? Let’s lay out 1 sheet of aluminum and 40 ft of tubing and a tig, and see who has a bike when it’s done..I don’t think jr or sr would have a swingset when they’re done….let alone a motorcycle.

  66. 66 MIki Nov 15th, 2011 at 11:43 am

    Jesse James MUST WIN!!!!

  67. 67 deadwood1783 Nov 15th, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    It’ll be fun and a great time of year for this to air. Whether you like any of these guys or not, they have helped drive business into our stores. And right now, I need all the business I can get! I’ll even confess to not being a particular fan of any of them, but IMHO, Jr. is the most creative, Jesse is the more skilled craftsman, and although I think Sr. is an a$$, he is the better businessman.

  68. 68 J Nov 15th, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    Wow- remember when Jesse said he’d never lower himself to competing with these tools?

    Guess stuff changes……..

    Broke much, Jesse?

  69. 69 mid-north-kustomz Nov 15th, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    all 3 have their own talents, one assembles, one real good with loctite, and the 3rd, ,,,,,,,,ummmm s…hit,,,,,,,,,, i forgot !!

  70. 70 The N2O Guy Nov 16th, 2011 at 6:19 am

    I enjoyed watching Jesse back in the day of monster garage and I enjoy watching American chopper. Both shows entertained me. To me the term build is thrown around way to loosely!! What folks fail to understand is building and assembling aren’t the same. Taking a long list of manufacturers parts and putting them together modifying as needed to fit is assembly. Building is designing ,fabricating ,and working out geometry of the design. Out of these guys Mr James built his own. I believe SR knows bike geometry but I haven’t seen it showcased. The only person that I feel could actually build a complete bike start to finish is Mr James. The best builder should win a bike build off. Now if you wanna add a peoples choice then fine by me but call it that! If it quacks like a duck looks like a duck and walks like a duck its not a mongoose…. just saying! These shows are ratings driven and advertisement dollar motivated. Its about selling us all TV time and guess what its working lol. Just wish people would rally discovery to do some real build offs where people in the business could go from tubing and sheet metal to ridable bike type of build offs. Get some real world going on.,.. just my. 02

  71. 71 Patrick from Long Beach Nov 16th, 2011 at 3:06 pm

    I have met Jeese a couple times. Once in his shop and ran into him at a 7-11. He wasent rude he was cool and laid back and didnt seem to come of like an asshole. But I’m seeing these discovery build of and he acts like a complete doochbag.. His style of bike building is so different to the OCC and PJD guys. Why he wants to come out of the tumble weeds in Texas and do a biker build of with these company’s I dont know. Maybe cause he cant keep a relationship together and has fallin outta the lime light for dating tattooed chicks and cheating on the most powerful women in the world. He’s gotta go ride the coat tails of OCC and PJD, and act like a complete doochbag while doing so.. Come on Jeese. I see on websites that you can buy a WCC for under 15 grand.. Really, Get your shit together. Your a lost cause bro. You have left long beach and became one giant asshole.. I am a fan of your bikes but I wouldnt buy one if I had the cash to. Act a little professional guy. Dont play yourself like your gods gift to choppers. Be humble, theres no reason to be mad at the world cause you act like and asshole..

  72. 72 Cyndi from Philadelphia Nov 16th, 2011 at 10:30 pm

    Paul Jr will win he is more creative , Jessie bikes are all the same and Sr. doesn’t do anything his team does it all.. So Definitely Paul Jr!!!!

  73. 73 bigwoody Nov 17th, 2011 at 4:31 am

    Alll threeare egomanics. Should be more humble.

    Guess the low key effect is not what gives ratings.

  74. 74 Mike Armstrong Nov 18th, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    I bet Jesse come up with something fresh while remaining “old school”.

  75. 75 brad marlow Nov 20th, 2011 at 4:41 am

    i vote for PJD

  76. 76 bshirk Nov 20th, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Who freaking cares???????

  77. 77 bub Nov 21st, 2011 at 2:49 am

    Jessie j is gonna spank there ass bad

  78. 78 HDRYDER Nov 21st, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    If you watch the video Paul Sr. is already talking about his team. What a joke, he doesn’t do anything. JJ should kill them.

  79. 79 REDDEAD28 Nov 21st, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    Its all about Jesse James. That guy has made kick ass bikes for years he knows the meaning of chopper.

  80. 80 RicoSuave Nov 21st, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    Sorry, I don’t even know who Cyril is. I stumbled on this through the Bloomberg article on investing in Choppers. What most of you do not seem to comprehend is that this “build off” is nothing more than entertainment. The most relevant comparison would be to WWE wrestling. These guys are all making BIG money, and having fun doing what they love. Anyone posting here should be so lucky. No matter what they build, guaranteed it will be better than what 99% of you are riding.

  81. 81 JESSE Nov 22nd, 2011 at 12:11 am

    I watch these shows and respect the builders but I prefer to support My local builders. Like the ones in My hometown the Big B Baltimore like Mobtown,Kundratics Kustom,White Boy Choppers,and Charm City Choppers! Check Them Out!

  82. 82 joseph hernandez Nov 23rd, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    jesse will smoke them fools come on even people that just ride when they can want to see a real bike they could pound on and ride for real most of us live in the real world we like shit we can beat on

  83. 83 DJ Nov 28th, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    All the shit talk here.. I submit to you this.. Put your money where your mouth is… Everyone tell you your guy is and all the loosers call J&P Cycles and make a 20.00 donation to the motorcycle museum. I will say the safe bet is PJD because the people voting don’t have a clue(they call those bikes “choppers”, that says it all). However, as a builder and a biker there is no doubt that Jesse has got this.. So officially PJD knowing who the real winner should have been.. I have my 20.00 ready

    DJ, I agree. I am in for 20.00 too… but I say Jesse James. Whose next, buck up and follow up. :)!

  85. 85 burnout Nov 30th, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    I’m in for JJ. peace

  86. 86 RusD Dec 5th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    Looks like Sr. did exactly what was expected of him…Refusing to build a bike and compete. Truly the cowards way out

  87. 87 HARLEYDAVE Dec 5th, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    I wonder why building a snowmobile? Jr. looks confused and worried Jesse just seems to have a plan. TO BUILD A MOTORCYCLE. Actualy BUILD one.

  88. 88 Ive Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:00 pm

    No disrespect to Jesse James because he is a great bike builder but definitely Junior (PJD Crew) is going to smoke J.J and Senior. He has proven himself on his own that he can build great bikes. Go Junior!!!!!!!

  89. 89 Jeff Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    I think all three have paid their dues in the industry. What I think everyone needs to remember is that it’s all business. As popular as each are in their respective circles, they all influence sales and style in a part of the big money pizza pie. Each builder will attract a multitude of personalities that in some way mirrors what they see as something they could be or aspire to be like. Or it just comes down to product, yea the theme bikes are getting a little old but that’s what puts food on the table and keeps the business going. I’m sure we would all build a dream bike if we had the skills to do so. One turn off for anyone is someone to say I’m the best and contradict themselves by saying I don’t need a pat on the back to know it’s cool. If you’re building for yourself, then yea who cares. If you’re building for a customer that wants a product and you don’t deliver, good luck getting another build. Best of luck to all three

  90. 90 cathi Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    Paul Jr. Jr. Jr. Jr. Always and forever he has more class than the other two.

  91. 91 THE Gooey Frog Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    Jesse James all the way…. The KING of Chopper Building. Followed VERY closely by JR. !!!!! Jr. comes up with some pretty sick designs. Senior…… (YAWN) is over !!!

  92. 92 Goldie Zietz Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:33 pm

    Paul Jr. will WIN Of course!!!!!!!!!!!!! He’s respectable and a man of honor. His father should learn from his son! and get over this jealousy. as for Jesse, He should be ashamed of himself. He has a nasty mouth and should get it wash out with soap!!!!!!!

  93. 93 Goldie Zietz Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    Can I vote Twice?? Did i say vote for Paul Junior?? Well Of course I did!! He WINS!!

  94. 94 Rollingstone64 Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:40 pm

    Paul sr chopper(?!?!) looks like something I saw on the Ambiguously Gay Duo cartoon from SNL…..Seriously….I fell out of my chair aughing when I saw Sr riding/presenting around the parking lot.I was waiting for him to have one of his workers “mount up”.

  95. 95 willie nadonza Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    paul jr by far is the best bike designer overall

  96. 96 melegirl Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:44 pm

    I think Paul Jr. will win hands down. Jr. has built some fantastic bikes.

  97. 97 Dsstrpc Dec 5th, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Jesse was right, he builds bikes that actually CAN be ridden….I don’t think a tracked “motorcycle” with flamethrowers qualifies as a ride-able machine. Although I like Paul jr. Creativity and open mind, its a tough one.

  98. 98 jdfastlane Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    WTF!! a track thing?? like how is that a motorcycle where are they going to ride it Jesse’s bike is badass as usual but the tank and headlight is to high you cant see where your going paulys bike is amazing just crazy but why the huge wheels and why such a small wheel in the rear you gas it just gotta spin and lose control but other than that just crazy crazy bike i do like like the had made frame and front fork on jesse’s bike though

  99. 99 Rollingstone64 Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    jrs bike is alright jjs bike is alright but I cant say hands down either one is a 10….but I will have to vote for jj but doesnt look like I would like to ride it around very long,I like to stretch out + relax + be comfortable.INDIAN LARRY would have’em all smoked..Nuff said

  100. 100 Jackie Galgan Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:11 pm

    I like Jesse James Bike Better. Hes Old School when it comes to Building Bikes.

  101. 101 Charli Hull Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:14 pm

    paul sr that shit is the coldest the US army check that out

  102. 102 Michael Sarah Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:29 pm

    Occ couldn’t compete on two wheels so they jumped ship, added a third wheel to hold themselves up and landed a transformer instead of a motorcycle. They lose. Jesse, can you gimme something different? You lose. Junior, you can build me a bike anytime! Ingenious! You are the BEST! PJD WINS!

  103. 103 Jerry goerdt Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:35 pm

    I like Paul Jr’s bike the best . It is great.

  104. 104 JOHNSMAGNOLIA Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:36 pm

    I have so much respect for Paul Sr. Because he started his business over.30 years ago comming off an addiction, and formed a great business for himself and his family. Without Sr, doing that Jr would be working for a boss that would not tolerate his self centered behavior. Paul Sr you are a modern American success story

  105. 105 Jerry goerdt Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:37 pm

    Paul Jr.The best overall in building any bike.

  106. 106 ppappy Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:39 pm

    SRs ride looks like a robot, j j is a nice looking ride but not much thought in it ,front forks are nice but the rest is old school just plain ,jr,s looks likesit took some hard thinking . thats my voice.

  107. 107 JOHNSMAGNOLIA Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:39 pm

    I vote for Sr. He is off the beaten track

  108. 108 Denise Watkins Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:40 pm


  109. 109 mark kucholick Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    by definition jesse james has the only chopper. I don’t know what the hell OCC is building ( I thought this is suppose to be a bike build off ) , PJD cant build anything but a gas tank…. this has turned into nothing but a popularity contest..

  110. 110 BAD-A-RIDE Dec 5th, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    Sr. Has a Bad ass machine . He has my vote

  111. 111 jeffery77 Dec 6th, 2011 at 12:01 am

    I think most of u should get jesse’s junk out of ur mouth! Its clear ur all on his ****. The guy is a joke and u can’t just admit pjd’s is the best? But 2 make things like this fair they should just not reveal who built what until the polls r done

  112. 112 louskay22 Dec 6th, 2011 at 12:05 am

    Even Though this build Off Is not about popularity,tough trash talk, or even good or bad looks,the three have come up with their finished product. Senior in my opinion could have at least built a chopper instead of some futuristic tank! BAD CHOICE SENIOR!!! The Winner Is Paul Jr!!!!! Jesse James Is Full Of Himself,Arrogant, Disrespectful. I didn’t like his bike. Too Much hate went into it!!!!

  113. 113 james Dec 6th, 2011 at 12:09 am

    The point is who builds the best builder not have every one send u parts in the mail

  114. 114 Choppmsn68 Dec 6th, 2011 at 12:10 am

    I have read a lot about this “build off ” and Its VERY obvious that on the actual BIKE forums, that Jesse is by FAR the favorite, HOWEVER, this will be a popularity contest and the majority of the people voting on this thing will be American Chopper fans. That being said, the MAJORITY of the American Chopper fans wouldnt know fabrication or bad a** chopper from Kitchen appliance. The majority of those fans hate SR so he has NO chance, and the rest only know Jesse by name and arent aware of the skills he actually has. I have seen th pics of all the bikes, and OCC WTF? Its supposed to be a motorcycle!! JR? As usual because he isnt a bike guy, doesnt ride, and is, and has always been an ASSEMBLER. The bike he built has to have a “theme” The exhaust comes out of the sides of the tank! Id like to see him ride that thing 600 miles to a bike rally!! A, it would probably fly apart before they get out of Montgomery, B. the only thing they actually fabricated was the tank. Jesse built the whole thing from scratch, Jr doesnt have the skill or know how to bulid a frame or front end from scratch. The OCC THING isnt a bike, JR will win because its his show, and his fans will be watching. It should have been like the old buildoffs and it shouldve been riden, and judged by REAL bike people, not people who have no clue what a custom bike actually is

  115. 115 sccm Dec 6th, 2011 at 12:20 am

    Wow! I can’t believe how many people are looking through rose colored glasses. Jesse James is an amazing welder but nothing more. He doesn’t have the same design sense that Jr has, and if you compare there bikes you will see that. Jr has created and designed the most unique and innovative bike designs the world has seen thus far. I’ve seen Jesse James bikes and there is nothing innovative and new about his designs. It looks like every other bike out there that has been made. This contest is about the best overall between design, and build and the Teutuls are both, Jesse is nothing more than a glorified welder.

  116. 116 donna Dec 6th, 2011 at 12:24 am

    i cannot stand jesse james do your job keep you freaking mouth shut not slamming the other guys. hope that junior does the best job. senior’s looks pretty awesome! interesting stuff guys i await for tomorrow 🙂

  117. 117 quickdraw Dec 6th, 2011 at 12:37 am

    Paul Jr. is changing the motorcycle industry! His heart and soul is in what he does. The guys that work for him can see that! Jesse build something that we haven’t seen before? It is a bike build off not a talk off. Paul Jr. thanks for caring about the fans and giving everbody what they what to see! Senior thanks for giving your guys so much freedom. Paul Jr. keep up the good work!

  118. 118 sccm Dec 6th, 2011 at 1:10 am

    So I just saw basically what Jesse James is building and it’s a nice bike, but it’s too similar to anything out there. It’s nothing new I’m sure the bike was built well, but like I said before he has no design sense. His bikes are boring we’ve been looking at those kind of designs for the past decade, can’t he do something different? This is why he isn’t doing as well as Jr customer want to see something new, something that will catch your eye. That’s what happens when you have welder try to design he’s in over his head if you ask me. Jesse needs to focus more on his design sense. If he even spent half as much time as he spends complaining and ripping on everyone else he might be able to accomplish this. I don’t like the man I think he is one of the most narcissistic and disrespectful people around, and that will eventually catch up to him and bite him in the ass. Go Paul Jr!

  119. 119 lynnus266 Dec 6th, 2011 at 1:16 am

    my thinking is what can be road, and safe. paul sr. no way. Jessie James no way if you watch him ride he has to look one side to the other can’t see over the gas tank not safe. paul jr. yes can be riden even if not but just for show at least it is safer and the smoke done right is safe. science. is a wonderful thing.

  120. 120 DSE_R Dec 6th, 2011 at 1:42 am

    looks like their only one you can ride and on the website for voting it happens to be the only one that doesn’t look like a complete digital rendering. I like the LiPo power oi SR’s bike

  121. 121 Maria P Dec 6th, 2011 at 1:58 am

    I would Love to see PJD win! I know that Jessie is on of the great’s but to make fun of Paul JR like a child shows the Jessie is so full of him self an his comments are truely immature.. Paul Sr should not even say who he thinks should win like that against his own son no matter what family problems there are he does not deserve to have a son so great.. If anything Paul JR has been the only mature one with how he speaks of everyone else in the build off..SR an Jessie SHOULD HEAR YOR SELVES GROW UP… PDJ your bike is beautiful, there are no words for how great u guys are God bless we wish u the best of luck..After tonights show an seeing all the bike PDJ your bike is the winner becaus you raised the bar again…SR your bike does not make sense,..Jessie i understand u did all the work by hand on yours but it is plain an just a regular Chopper seen it before nothing special…. Good luck to all of you BUT PJD, VINNY AN THE REST OF THE GUYS GOT THIS IN THE BAG NO DOUBT!!!!!!! Again Good Luck An GOD BLESS OUR VOTE GOES TO P.J.D 100%

  122. 122 Brenda Rawlings Dec 6th, 2011 at 10:35 am
