Discovery Build-Off Chopper Live – The Revenge. Jesse James Pre-Show Building Drama.

Since a few days the rumor was that Jesse James might not have his “Chopper Live – The Revenge” custom bike done in time for the Discovery TV 4-way Build-Off this Monday & Tuesday. A couple of weeks ago, thanks to a crazy design, Jesse’s project already didn’t make the deadline requested by the Discovery production guys (Pilgrims Production) to give them enough time to edit the full shooting of the 4 bikes in competition while they were built. These are the TV show images in the American Chopper 2-hour special you are going to watch on Monday evening just before you are given the opportunity to text message your vote for your preferred builder/bike.

Whatever your preference in terms of personality and style of bikes, no true custom builder can be challenged on hard work and tenacity, 2 qualities that Jesse owns more than many. On his bikes, Jesse works mostly alone, calling for help only in extreme cases.

Jesse doesn’t care too much that the Discovery will not be able to get all images of his build until completion for the Monday evening show. What is more important for him is to make it on time on Tuesday evening to the Las Vegas Hard Rock Cafe stage with a very rideable custom bike, not with a pretty rolling sculpture. My name is Jesse…

Only those who never built something from scratch with their hands will not understand, but all others know that in our business bad things happen (in this case a bent main shaft drive), especially when you are the first to try something radically new, fabricating a one-off chassis and assembling on it parts that never met before on a motorcycle. Jesse’s story is not a publicity stunt. I was a far away witness, in contact with Jesse by email and text messages, of what unfolded for him during the last 4 days.

Last Thursday December 6, Jesse tweeted “Rolled the dice on a crazy design and it’s just not working…”. Then, again, on Friday December 7 at 2 a.m. “With my back against the wall, I called the best, Chris Rusch and Bert Baker. So blessed to have these guys drop everything and jump on planes to lend a hand and see if we can fix this. Working again all night…” Saturday December 8. 12.31 p.m. Text from Jesse on my phone “Cyril, I will not make it to the build-off. You can announce it. Want details?” 12.37 p.m. I reply “Not making it? Explain and send all details”

During this time, Christo Doyle from the Discovery channel tweets a picture of the Las Vegas Hard Rock Cafe and Casino stage being completed for the Live TV Show on Tuesday December 11 (9 ET/8 C). Then Christo tweets again “Saturday and still no Jesse James here. Today we are shooting desert riding shots around Las Vegas, but only with three bikes…” 3.17 pm. Jesse to me “All new frame & transmission design failed. Remaking everything. Pulled in Bert Baker and Chris Rusch to help. Worked till 4am last night. Parts I need are coming on plane right now. Going to work all night again…” Me to Jesse “You still can make it. Either way it goes, continue to try. Update me with texts pictures at any time.” Jesse to me at 3.25 p.m. “I will try and try …”

Sunday December 9, 4.30 a.m., Jesse tweets a picture of a new tranny saying “Sometimes it’s easier to start from scratch. should know if it works in a few hours…” 8.45 a.m. Sleepless in Austin, Jesse texts me a picture of himself still shaping some steel. Picture is as blurry as his vision and the one of each of his helpers. On social networks fans of Senior, Junior and of the Gas Monkey duo are now convinced that their favorite builder got an extra big chance to win. 2.00 pm Hearing promising news from Austin, but Jesse didn’t confirm to me. His bike has to be en route in just hours to make it to the build-off. During this time in Las Vegas, Discovery Chopper Live show production meeting is going on with host Sal Masekela and all the builders, minus Jesse… 3.20 p.m. Jesse texts to me “IT RUNS. FIXING A FEW THINGS AND WILL BE ON THE WAY TO VEGAS.” I ask Jesse to text me a picture of him (I can’t show you his bike…) Here it is. Looking exhausted enough?…. By the way, the bike is BADASS…

In conclusion. Jesse got the tools, skills and heart to not give up. With the help of a couple of friends of the industry he was able to finish what he started. And if he didn’t finish on time? Remember these words “An artist cannot fail because it is already a success to be one.”

Note: I would have written the same article for any builders in the Build-Off in the same last minute difficulty.

American Chopper Live. The Build-Off Revenge Between Jesse James, The Teutuls And The Team Of Richard Rawlings With Aaron Kaufman.

This Monday And Tuesday (December 10-11 at 9 pm ET/PT On Discovery Channel), many of you are going to tune in for the revenge that many fans have been asking for since last year when Paul Teutul Junior won by popular votes the 1st build-off competition against Jesse James. On Monday, the first part of this American Chopper two-night special will show you the 4 builders at work, trash talking each other (for fun & ratings), then you will have the opportunity to vote for your preferred custom bike/builder. On Tuesday, live from Las Vegas Hard Rock Cafe & Casino, with a little bit more of trash talking (still for fun) the build-off winner will be announced.

Cutthroat family drama event? Of course, it’s the way the Discovery Channel market it to create the largest audience possible. Reality? Between you & me, builders involved respect each other much more than what you can think, see and hear from them. Rivalry is good, entertainment is also good if you know how to recognize it. One thing I know for sure is that on Tuesday after a 10-year long-running cable TV reality series punctuated by family feuds and lawsuits, the stars of “American Chopper” Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. are going to get extremely emotional, at least inside, realizing that they are showing their bikes for the last time front of the cameras.

To “refresh” the competition, Discovery needed new characters. They found them with Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman (nicknamed Tom & Jerry by Paul Sr.) already starring in another Discovery TV show called “Fast N’ Loud” where they bring derelict cars back to life in their Texas “Gas Monkey” garage. To spice the show on Monday, these 2 are never shy to verbally challenge Jesse James and the Teutuls on their building capabilities. But I know most of you are more interested by the bikes builders have built during the last 6 weeks than the hype required to create audience with a reality TV show. So, what do I know? I just give you a couple of hints until tomorrow Monday evening. The “Gas Monkey” duo restored a rigid knuckle from a basket case, Jesse did his fabrication thing on a “racer”, and the Teutuls intended to build a rideable street legal bikes. In the video below, Jesse James tells you a little bit more. Enjoy the foursome show hosted by Sal Masekela. Legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd will headline the live show on Tuesday.

    Think Jesse is going to win. Great story Cyril.

  2. 2 Jose Dec 9th, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    Jesse probably thinks that the compete is BS (last year!) but I am pretty certain he wants to win it this time.

  3. 3 Catalina Dec 9th, 2012 at 6:39 pm

    Great stroy! Jesse James is a master at his craft(s). Never disappoints. I’m so relieved he will be on the show. It wouldn’t be any fun without him. Looking forward to seeing his creation. Good luck, Jesse James! #TeamJesse

  4. 4 Billy Dec 9th, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Count howmany times he says ” You Know”

  5. 5 Moabbikr Dec 9th, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    Great article, however I think an extra week of build time is unfair to the other builders. They were all given a specific deadline to build the bikes by and designs hinged on that! Jesses design might be cutting edge but he failed to follow the agreed apon guidelines, plain and simple!!

  6. 6 Inde Dec 9th, 2012 at 6:57 pm

    Glad to see Jesse will be there. I only wanted to see what he built. The grease monkeys are a joke. Sr. Has people doing the work for him ( when was the last time if ever has he picked up a wrench) Skeeter is the only person in the place that knows a thing or twelve about bikes. Jr. Farms out most of his parts. the last bike was god awful. Rivets and smoke doesn’t make a bike. The couch potatoes voting don’t know what the hell they’re looking at! All the builders should have to ride the bike on the freeway, not the street at 10 mph for the cameras. Jesse’s bike will be nice I have no doubt. It may not be all bling and flashy with a wrench welded to it, but it will be a true custom rideable custom bike.

  7. 7 Semper Dec 9th, 2012 at 6:59 pm

    Glad to see it was not a publicity stunt like fans of the other builders began to say. I guess, when you want to know the truth about Jesse, ask Cyril Huze.

  8. 8 TeamCustom Dec 9th, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    It’s a great real life story, Cyril. Discovery Channel could not expect more to promote their tv show!

  9. 9 Trophy Dec 9th, 2012 at 7:18 pm

    Drama is good for Jesse & Cyril…

  10. 10 Tom Dec 9th, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    At least Jesse is honest on the reason for the build off. “Pay up sucker!” (As his tattoo says.) I actually agree with Jesse, He builds a bike, Jr and Sr builds (for the most part) museum pieces. I bet that Jesse will put more miles on his bike in a week then Jr’s bike will see in a lifetime.

  11. 11 leeport Dec 9th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    Who really cares who wins, its all for Discovery sponsor dollars anyway. Besides, I mean seriously, anybody who knows anything about building bikes or cars, knows Jesse’s skill level is sick and beyond cool. The other guys arent even on the same planet as him.

  12. 12 mike russell Dec 9th, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    I am a huge Jesse fan and have been for many years. His bikes are always BadAss. There are few people left who still build the way that he does. A true inspiration.

  13. 13 Rick brown Dec 9th, 2012 at 7:34 pm

    I’m with leeport Jesse is not even on the same planet with these guys when it comes to ability to build a rideable ass kicking motorcycle. Jesse has it hands down he was the start of the motorcycle building television fad and should have been. Nobody else has come close if we wanted to see shiny little queer bikes we would watch occ build them or have their artist Jason draw them and then they try to build his Star Wars minds bikes. He’s a dork bike builder never thought I would say that about any builder he got lucky cause he can draw and operate a computer has no real talent in the bike world. Sr should go back to old world craftsmanship bikes. Jr might be a little the same but at least he has vinny to keep him honest mostly the bikes look okay but don’t run ride what’s the point. It’s a trophy to put in a window it doesn’t really ride stupid.

  14. 14 Roady Dec 9th, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    The Teutuls are jokes (Jr. 10 times more than his father), the Gas Monkeys are just monkeys who don’t know much about bikes. Jesse will win easy.

  15. 15 Shifter Dec 9th, 2012 at 8:19 pm

    I can predict. 1- Jesse James. 2- Paul Senior 3- Paul Junior 4- The Monkeys. Let’s check again tuesday evening.

  16. 16 Zipper Dec 9th, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    The suspense is killing me. I hope to remember to watch the show. ..Z

  17. 17 Mark Dixon Dec 9th, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    I always enjoy wrench TV.Keep it up.

  18. 18 Blackmax Dec 9th, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Oh Boy, here we go!!!!

  19. 19 David Rose Dec 9th, 2012 at 8:59 pm

    Cyril gets involved! #teamcyrilhuze

  20. 20 Eric Maurer Dec 9th, 2012 at 9:03 pm

    Jesse should win…. problem is its the NASCAR, WWE, MMA Redbull chugging audience voting, not peers or enthusiasts. The votes will be cast by TV fans, not motorcycle fans.

    Whatever it is…. Jesse’s bike will be over the top form and function craftsmanship and everything else will be bolted together, theme’d out, fashion accessory fluff

    Still damn entertaining! Looking forward to watching.

  21. 21 Greeko Dec 9th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    It was a great piece of entertainment, Cyril. How much to email me now a picture of Jesse’s build-off bike? :)

  22. 22 Brandon Dec 9th, 2012 at 9:09 pm

    Anyone knows how much the builders are paid? Cyril?

  23. 23 Bignutsbill Dec 9th, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    If jesse james can do some all nighters on his project so can the film editors on the discovery channel.If he gets DQed for going into overtime that will be that but let the would see what he spent all his time on trying to show his dream of a winning bike and design /fab skills.

  24. 24 Rodent Dec 9th, 2012 at 9:48 pm

    It’s just a TV show and the winner is Drumroll….The Discovery Chanel!

  25. 25 Boss Hawg Dec 9th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    WOW….This getting better than WWE.

    The “Bad Boy” persona, EH?

    Boss Hawg

  26. 26 Scooter Trash Dec 9th, 2012 at 10:46 pm

    Jessie is the real deal. He builsd old school. none of this far fetched way out there crap. His bikes function, they can be ridden acrossed country. Unlike some others. Jassie is the man Keep up the down home work Jessie. Stay who you are not what some tv show wants. My vote’s for Jessie. Thanks for all you do !!!

  27. 27 BadMonkeyMW Dec 10th, 2012 at 12:06 am

    I’m psyched just to see Jesse’s finished bike. From the info he did provide, it sounds like it will be great. Major respect for not giving up regardless of “reality TV” production schedules.

  28. 28 doc Dec 10th, 2012 at 12:35 am

    Now, when is it?

  29. 29 courtney Dec 10th, 2012 at 1:10 am

    Wow, that had me on the edge of my seat! I feel inclined to root for JJ after reading that!!

    Not….

    Lol, just kidding. I’m looking forward to seeing all of the bikes. Should be fun TV. Maybe this will kick-start more build-off shows.

  30. 30 SAUL LARIOS Dec 10th, 2012 at 3:14 am

    THE ONLY REASON JR WON LAST TIME IS BECOUSE IT WAS ON AMERICAN CHOPPER AND ALL THE PEOPLE WAS JR’S FAN BASE

  31. 31 David Rose Dec 10th, 2012 at 7:16 am

    Doc, you must live under a rock. The show is on Discovery tonight & tomorrow at 9 pm et and 8 pacific

  32. 32 Josh Parker Dec 10th, 2012 at 8:33 am

    Very nice report. At the end of the day, drama has always benefited Jesse James. Tonight too?

  33. 33 Broadway lee Dec 10th, 2012 at 8:55 am

    Can’t wait to see jesse”s build he puts the real in reality bike build shows RIGHT ON FOR NOT GIVING UP

  34. 34 Oldude Dec 10th, 2012 at 8:56 am

    I’ll be watching but who ever wins will not change my life !

  35. 35 Convict Motorcycles Dec 10th, 2012 at 9:52 am

    If there is to be any evolution to these shows, how about a few other people ride the entrants’ bikes across the country…..that, I would be money to watch.

  36. 36 Convict Motorcycles Dec 10th, 2012 at 9:53 am

    If there is to be any evolution to these shows, how about a few other people ride the entrants’ bikes across the country…..that, I would pay money to watch.

  37. 37 Matt Dec 10th, 2012 at 10:36 am

    Trying to recall the last time I went to a custom bike show and wanted to ride ANY of those bikes for 3000k miles across the country!

  38. 38 Brian Setsodi Dec 10th, 2012 at 10:51 am

    When u are creating something from scratch u can’t expect it to go smooth. I enjoy the other guys work but the end products are slapped on decorations and have no fuction or they just go on getting it done. Jesse put thought and heart as if that project was for himself. It not right It’s not done. It looks like all others It’s not his. A true craftsman knows that. Production is great so all can say they have one but a true work of art is one of a kind.

  39. 39 BobbyB Dec 10th, 2012 at 11:19 am

    Jesse should have to forfeit the build. Yes it sucks but he didn’t make the deadline.

  40. 40 Moabbikr Dec 10th, 2012 at 11:29 am

    These comments crack me up! So essentially what everyone is saying is that if JR dressed like shit and acted like an ass and was all tatted up then suddenly he builds real bikes? Please! Slap on decorations? Are you kidding me? I would love to see any if you do what any of these builders do! Just because someone uses a cnc machine to build parts doesn’t make it slap on! It’s called working smarter instead of harder! Unless Jesse build his own engine he using slap on parts.

    I agree Jesse builds kick ass bikes and I would love to own one but all the other builders build cool shit as well!!

  41. 41 Brendon team junior Dec 10th, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    Well said moabbikr couldn’t agree more!!! Can’t see all the bikes.

  42. 42 Superwoman Super Bitch Dec 10th, 2012 at 12:30 pm

    Every since, the first time, after just being recently beat on by my husband, an all sad, an depressed…I came across, an episode of Monster Garage, an from that moment on, I had found my true peace, an happiness, when most depressed, all of the fabulous things, that I had seen on every episode, were just absolutely amazing to me!! An, I have looked up to Jesse James, an West Coast Choppers every since!! I can prob. almost guarantee that if…I am not the absolute #1 West Coast Choppers/Monster Garage/Jesse James fan, then I am most deff. very close to the #1 fan!! I was very excited, when I found out that Jesse, was going to be doing another show!!

  43. 43 hotrod351 Dec 10th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    it was a joke last year, didnt ride any where like the original build off’s. jr had won before any one even saw the bikes. every one knows that if you have to ride the bike’s more than a mile or two, then you have to do things different, like make it to it stay together. i want any one to win but jr, boy.

  44. 44 A 1 CYCLES INC. Dec 10th, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    DID YOU ALL MISS THE HAND FABBED TRANNY CASE? NUFF SAID! MASTER CRAFTSMAN. I BELIEVE JESSIES BIKE IS GOING TO BE A CORNER CARVER..CANYON RUNNER PRO STREET CAFE’ STYLE…WE WILL SEE

  45. 45 John Dec 10th, 2012 at 2:17 pm

    I agree with A 1 Cycles. Jessie’s build looks to be more of a handling oriented bike this time. I believe Sr’s bike will be in this style as well.

  46. 46 Littlerider22 Dec 10th, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    Thank God 2 more days of this stuff and we can all go back to work and enjoy what we do.
    No doubt that Jesse will be a great bike but he had the chance to build one on the last build-off to put him back in the game and failed. I am sure the motivation is now that he has a show on TV and that the OCC series has been cancelled. We shall see. Nice publicity stunt though… If not we can always call the guy who won that CCE bike show and have him bring is Ironhead garbage bike.

  47. 47 Tobby Dec 10th, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    While everyone seems to agree that JJ has the upper had in skills and design, keep in mind that the voting happens after the two hour AMERICAN CHOPPER special. So keep in mind exactly who tunes into this trainwreck of a show on a regular basis. Sadly, I think the voting will be biased towards the two Pauls simply because it is their show, and most people watching it will be their fans.

    It would be nice to see a dozen or so credible judges deciding the outcome rather that a popularity contest by texting.

  48. 48 Scooter Dec 10th, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    What has been lost in theses build off,s. is the ride! The original build off shows required the bike be built and rode 1500 miles or so to the contest, then voted on by bike builders and riders. But it is still entertaining tv, most who can’t turn a wrench should not criticize. Jason is a moron, sr can’t fabricate, jr isn’t much better but can a little,, vinne has all the skills in jr,s house, Mike and rick are the bomb. Jessie does it all. Like in the original build off shows, Let’s get back to reality build offs!…”. Incase you haven’t noticed, occ and pjd sell advertising not bikes, what will they do without tv, I bet there prices go way down…..

  49. 49 Cybersurfingalien Dec 10th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

    I’m curious as to what Gas Monkey will build. Makes me worried cause that could split the votes between them & JJ enough for Jr to win again.

  50. 50 rags Dec 10th, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    jesse the best building ground up.other are drama queens

  51. 51 RampantMonkey Dec 10th, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    How about just a ‘fender’ build off? Jr. Can’t even build a fender by himself…what a worthless retard!

  52. 52 Anthony Ervin Dec 10th, 2012 at 11:25 pm

    I’ve always followed Jesse James, and everything he builds is a work of art. No 1 else in this competition has the skills the experience and the vision that Jesse James has. I just wish that I could will work with Jesse James and learn what he knows.

  53. 53 MamaCrash Dec 11th, 2012 at 12:17 am

    Really? The deadline for the buildoff is tomorrow night when they unveil the bikes, Jesse didn’t give Discovery time to edit their stuff for tv….too bad!!! Everyone knows that none of these other builders have the raw talent or skill to do what he does, so suck it up whiners, he built his bike in time for the competition not the tv show!! That is what should matter, not who gets the most air time….

  54. 54 doc Dec 11th, 2012 at 12:31 am

    shoot. must have missed it.

  55. 55 Pdr Dec 11th, 2012 at 12:36 am

    This is totally unfair. Jesse should be disqualified. He did not make the deadline, so he should not be part of the show.

  56. 56 Mike Dec 11th, 2012 at 12:49 am

    Jesse makes a great bike but if he does not care about the dead line he should not be in build off. I am sick of hearing him brag about his skill set. We get it you think you are the best however you need to shut up and build a bike.

  57. 57 Fireps Dec 11th, 2012 at 12:58 am

    Jesse James isnt the best builder….he proves it by having to call in Chris Rusch and Bert Baker. If you cant design a bike that works hang it up!

  58. 58 BRIAN O Dec 11th, 2012 at 1:23 am

    THE SHOW IS CALLED CHOPPER LIVE JJ AN OCC BUILD SPORT BIKES. JJ TALKS LIKE HES IT.BUYS HIS MOTOR TRANS LIKE EVERY ONE ELSE.THEN CALLS BAKER IN TO HELP WITH TRANS. THEN ACTS LIKE HE CAN DO IT ALL .JUST CAN’T DO IT IN THE SAME ALLOWED TIME..AT LEAST JR AND GAS MONKEY BUILT CHOPPERS IN THE ALLOWED TIME.IN A CHOPPER BUILD OFF.

  59. 59 jusmy2cents Dec 11th, 2012 at 1:35 am

    I was beind Jesse till this show. All of a sudden he talks like he dosen’t give a rats ass about his fans! He said he don’t care about votes or what people think! Come on Jesse if it was’t for your fans you would just be another gifted builder like countless other builders. The world has many artists that can build just as good as you. I would like to see gas monkies win. They built a great bike. Jr. and Sr. They are great for people like Donald Trump. Even if they were true builders who could afford their bikes?

  60. 60 bill8 Dec 11th, 2012 at 2:22 am

    JJ is soo full of himself it’s almost impossible to listen to him talk… Gas Monkeys did it the old school way.

  61. 61 Steve O Dec 11th, 2012 at 3:12 am

    JJ sounds like a very angry and bitter has been. He had it all and threw it away. All he’s got left is the ability to build a decent motorcycle. His new show sucks balls and he’s acted like a tool in the build off. Maybe a new agent and PR person might help your career “bro”. Btw JJ and Sr both built street fighters…not choppers.

  62. 62 Jesse 'Blah Blah' James Dec 11th, 2012 at 3:17 am

    Jesse is nutin but a broken record, ‘I don’t care who wins’, ‘My skills are unmatched’, ‘I build 99 percent of my bikes”, BLAH BLAH BLAH. What good is all that skill if what you make looks like a turd. It’s just a well made turd, if it’s as well made as he thinks it is. He should stop pleasuring himself with the forged dildo he made so he can get off on his own dreamworld of convining himself that he’s the best blacksmith that ever lived, and finish his dam bike on time. It’s an old tired book, and he shouldn’t be talking so much shit since he lost last year. The best thing he said in the show was that Paul Jr. should come to his shop for a few weeks, Yes, that way Jesse will actually have something well designed to build. Now I’d like to see that bike.

  63. 63 Steve E Dec 11th, 2012 at 3:34 am

    JJ has turned into the ultimate tool. The only thing he does really well is talk smack. Again, he acts as if he dug the bauxite out of his back yard to forge his own motor. He even said the “other guys” won’t build their own “motors, transmissions, and front ends” and then orders his from the factory. HD, Baker and Ohlins……great design JJ……..to bad most of us have seen a Buell before. Roland Sands has done the same bike at least half a dozen times. Good job, but don’t act like you reinvented the motorcycle. News flash…..you aren’t the only one who can build a bike. There are 3 dozen well known people that are at least as good as you. The other guys did really well at the style of bike that they are best at…….it should be a good contest.

  64. 64 Eric E Dec 11th, 2012 at 4:52 am

    I think that the timeframe bump is BS, aww jesse had a setback, ish happens. Paul Sr. just in time gets to annodize…BS…Especially in Sr’s case hes finishing a bike that wouldnt have been created. The ONLY TRUE competitors, regardless of this and that should be Paul JR. and the Gas Monkey guys.

    OCC, glad you have time to be stupid and blow dummies up, considering you didnt even rate last competition i wouldnt be so cavalier about thinking you stand a chance this time.

    I know i sounded harsh about Jesse James but i really didnt mean it in the respect of his work. Jesse is a Craftsman, period. Love him or hate him he is SICK at what he sets his mind and skills to and that is no joke, the man is amazing. To be honest, i think last year he shouldve been way closer or maybe even won, but that was last year.

    In Summary, to change a “REMATCH” to fit the parameters of a lacking participant isnt fair to the rest.

    It will be entertaining, but hardly a competition… It’s JR or Monkeys if your honest about voting.

  65. 65 Dave Dec 11th, 2012 at 7:28 am

    Jesse J. should’ve been disqualified, couldn’t meet a deadline and spent more time on his build…cheater. His “creation” looks stupid!

  66. 66 kkeller Dec 11th, 2012 at 8:07 am

    Jesse is all BS, whining and false bravado. I’ve watched his career and I’ve watched him bitch and whine the entire way. He fancies himself some sort of a newage badass based on his namesake, but he bitches out every time.

    He’s just another poser grasping desperately at any controversy or publicity to extend his flagging career.

    Gas Monkey won this build, hands down. They’re the only ones that didn’t source all their parts and “assemble” a “bike”.

  67. 67 Lauren Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:54 am

    Jesse doesn’t even deserve to win, given the amount of shit talking I heard last night. His ego is incredible. He was given an unfair time extension, while the other bikers scraped together parts and sweat it out. The Gas Monkey Bike is cool, interesting; I dislike the pink theme though and it doesn’t belong in a show like this. Paul Sr’s bike was very innovative, and Paul Jr.’s bike was just beautiful, brillinatly crafted and out-of-this-world. I guess you could say I’m “Team Junior” considering the fact that he’s the most honest worker, he actually sits there and thinks about what he’s going to do, how he’s going to carry things out. No one thought of thirties forties themed motorcycle. He used an antique lamp for the headlights and the whole frame is incredibly well done. I love the red and black wheels, the way the engine purrs, he’s the most original out of the group. :)

  68. 68 Steve-0 Dec 11th, 2012 at 10:59 am

    This post is correct. I would be afraid to ride behind Jr’s bike, junk would keep falling off. JJ and Sr have bikes I wouldn’t ride.

    Jesse is all BS, whining and false bravado. I’ve watched his career and I’ve watched him bitch and whine the entire way. He fancies himself some sort of a newage badass based on his namesake, but he bitches out every time.

    He’s just another poser grasping desperately at any controversy or publicity to extend his flagging career.

    Gas Monkey won this build, hands down. They’re the only ones that didn’t source all their parts and “assemble” a “bike”.

  69. 69 TeeCee Dec 11th, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Thinkin Senior’s got this in all honesty. His frame is off the chain and I’m diggin the lights and lines. Non-traditional OCC design for sure. JJ’s design is similar too but alot of the custom elements just aren’t there like Sr’s. And I gotta go with all the deadline statements. A contest is a contest. I’m not a Jr. fan and wouldn’t like his build even if it was the best. He’s a disrespectful and ungrateful tool that wouldn’t even be in this if it wasn’t for the old man in the first place. His bike looks like it belongs in Murdo. And I agree with most comments on the monkies. A pink rat bike? Seriously?? Thats all you got? My kid could build that same bike with a boneyard cuttin torch and his gf’s nail polish.

  70. 70 Nate Dec 11th, 2012 at 11:44 am

    The people that dislike Jesse James say some funny crap.

  71. 71 BC in SoCal Dec 11th, 2012 at 1:30 pm

    Like to see Richard and Senior with a tool in their hand, and hope they don’t put out an eye😜

  72. 72 shawn c Dec 11th, 2012 at 2:00 pm

    All respect to junior he has a talent that his father should be proud of.he creates pieces of art and his bikes will ride down the road.most of you know nothing about bike building i do my first bike build brought it all into perspective.it is by far nicer than any bike ive ever seen fast and loud build or ride.and for jj my prostreet bike blows away his bike builds be creative show the world what you can do.i would love to build against jj hes a shit talking dirt bag!

  73. 73 Sarge Dec 11th, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    There is no doubt that Jesse James has more and better skills that the rest of the builders in this competition combined but he didn’t follow the rules that were established and the rules weren’t changed unitl at least one of the other builders had completed their build, so based on that he should be dq’d from winning but allowed to show his bike. As far as the rest of those guys Sr’s. bike looks like a cartoon, Jr’s bike may be stylish but the design is dated and far from original. It looks like something that Arlen Ness was building 10 or 12 years ago only not as polished. The Monkey boys are about as primitive as a bunch monkeys in some of their technique but I have to say that they stuck to the spirit of what a biker build off should be and the end result was something that they rode around 1300 miles to get to the competition. So if I had voted they would have gotten my vote. Sorry Jesse, I have huge respect for what you have done and will continue to do. I know that winning this or any other competition is not why you do what you do and you could care less what people like me think but there it is. I’ve had my say and I’m out !

  74. 74 where's Robert Ford when you need him... Dec 11th, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    Looks like everybody pretty much stuck to their standard formula, though Sr still seems to be struggling for the signature identity that left with his son. Jr built an over the top hood ornament that will win the popular vote because its what the general public wants to see. Gas Monkey did a creditable restoration, though the pink is a little contrived. And the undeniably skilled JJ created another ‘all eyes on me’ drama. I agree with Steve-o, Jesse has mad fabrication skills, but his front as a badass is laughable. He is such an incredibly wet bitch, I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who notices how he talks and acts.

  75. 75 Jim Dec 11th, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    I am a Jesse James fan. I could afford it he would be the man to build me a custom bike. Ok he did not complete his bike on time. Things happen. Rules are rules……the other teams stated and bitched about it. So why didn’t they demand that Jesse be disqualified due to his not completing his build on time……No they would rather bitch about it and when he wins they will bitch that he had extra time. This build should have had the old school biker build off format where the builders meet someplace in the middle and ride to the judging. Win or lose Jesse James is the man.

  76. 76 Ego Maniac Dec 11th, 2012 at 4:28 pm

    Jesse built everything? Funny the front end , wheels brakes, motor, tranny components, levers, switches, tires, suspension, hoses, clamps, are all off the shelf. He built a frame, tank, fender & bent some tubing to enclose the tranny case so he could weld to it & it failed. Eric Buell built a extremely similar setup 30 years ago. Jesse had to “outsource” his special tranny case too. The truth is while Jesse is a great metal worker & blacksmith, he was taught, & I don’t think he gives enough credit to the “masters” that taught him. Just because you choose to dig your hole with a shovel, instead of starting the backhoe shouldn’t buy you more time. Is Jesse amish? He builds some parts by hand to feed his ego, not because they are superior. Maybe he can haul it to Vegas on a horse & buggy to prove he knows how to holler whoa too. BTW I would put Brandon’s sheet metal work up against Jesse’s any day.

  77. 77 will Dec 11th, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    Sr built a bike for once this time, Jr build a wanna be car at a bike build off, Jesse James incorporated a V-Twin on a crotch rocket frame which in turn looks alot like the same design of Sr’s with a twist and alot more raw building. Either way Gas Monkey is bringing a already built bike that is rebuilt and repainted pink and white. Regardless of ego Im thinking that the vote will go to the one who has the best all around design and functionality of the bike. If we all voted on skill set and how much effort and time you spent on the bike everyone would have to make them out of raw material and have new rules issued to the contestants where’s Indian Larry when you need him.

  78. 78 Don Dec 11th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Fabricating the whole thing takes longer than ordering all your parts….

  79. 79 jimmy Dec 11th, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Fan of american chopper, but don’t like any of the 4 bikes !

  80. 80 antqhdwr Dec 11th, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    i thought this show is called “CHOPPER live”, not ‘sport bike live’. the monkeys built a chopper, plain and simple, jr built a custom; jesse and sr built unfinished sport bikes @ the deadline. to top it off, jesse states he doesn’t even care, so why not pull out and let the others go after it!!! (i have to admit, jesse has the most hands on talent, i just somebody he respects would tell him so he doesn’t have to keep repeating it.)

  81. 81 Ego Maniac Dec 11th, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Dear Jesse, Burt Munro took a flat head motor, made it overhead valve, made the cylinders out of old gas pipe, cast his own pistons & spent 800 hours hand filing his cams, He than set a land speed record that still stands 50 years later. Match that .

    Also he never paid other people to teach him his skill set

  82. 82 chris christianson Dec 11th, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    I THINK JESSY NEADS TO WIN THIS WONE HE IS THE BEST BILDER THAT THERE IS BY FAR

  83. 83 sazizwaz Dec 11th, 2012 at 5:41 pm

    Jessie James Anyone stuck in their own head like you is the only one who value’s to their opinion….You build a frame and a fender and think you are some kind of bike god well you are not….People let you know that in the first build off and they will tell you the same in this one and if you don’t care why be in it. Because you like to hear you self talk. Talent is in the creation of something making it more thank a frame ,fender and engine.

  84. 84 Dave Blevins Dec 11th, 2012 at 5:43 pm

    My question is,on Jr’s bike where do the fake head pipes go… do they just stick out in mid air connected to nothing on both sides of the motor or what? Just looks really wrong from what I can see. Might have been cool if using a Henderson or Indian inline 4, as it is though, just wrong looking.

  85. 85 ron forry Dec 11th, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    the contest was for 6 weeks to build a bike . sr. didn’t build his bike his crew did. jesse wants to win but then doesn’t care if he gets done or not. pjd they build bikes that they get parts from vendors.the only team that really build a bike for show and can ride after show is gas monkeys. they got done on time . build from scratch and looks great great job gas monkey

  86. 86 K. Peterson Dec 11th, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    sazizwaz said,
    “Talent is in the creation of something making it more thank a frame ,fender and engine.”

    So why don’t I get in the build-off?
    how about a build-off where the builder does it all, the fab, the mechanical, the welding, the machining…yeah that includes programing also…(no button pushers), the assembly, the paint and artwork (I get so sick of hearing how great these guys think they are and 3/4 of the way through and then “it’s going out to paint”), …. only a few guys to help with the heavy parts, you know, so you don’t scratch something. Can any of these guys program their own machines? can they do their own paint and artwork?..oh yeah, I do my own powder coat also.
    Here’s my idea, the builder does 90% (subbing out things like chrome) ….pro judged…no american idol types voting with their phones, and a reasonable amount of time for such and undertaking, (it’s probably going to take quite a while for these guys to catch up to my skill level…since they actually have to learn new stuff)
    count me in. I dare ya…..

  87. 87 D.Lindberg Dec 11th, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    WHAT ABOUT ARLEEN NESS , HE’S A GREAT BIKE BUILDER ?

  89. 89 eli c Dec 11th, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    PJD HAS THIS HANDS DOWN. JAMES AND SR. DID NOT BUILD CHOPPERS AS GHE SHOW CALLED FOR. AS FOR MONKEY BOYS THIER RENDITION IS A CHOP WITH NO IMAGINATION. PJD HAS CLASS AND AMAZING CREATIVITY. WHAT A BIKE.

  90. 90 jim in Marissa Dec 11th, 2012 at 8:51 pm

    It is a shame that Jesse is so full of his self (among other things), cause he does have some skills but definitly no people skills. His failed relationships are proof of that. Get over yourself Jesse you are not all that you think you are!!! What you are is a person that has to put others down to try and make your self look better. Those that work with you probably feel the same and most likely talk about you behind your back. What a joke you are and if you want me to say it to your face email me and we can arrange it! You my friend are nothing more than an a snot nosed punk!

  91. 91 Bill Wingfield Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    I think Richard hit the nail right on the head when he said all jesse was doing was chasing his ex-wife around. poor guy needs a life. He is a joke if you ask me all he can do is talk shit about people he cant out build..

  92. 92 Roco Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Will some tell Jesse how great he is and that nobody but him can build so he can stop repeating it over and over.. my skillset my skillset my skillset.. me me me me me me me

  94. 94 Bill Wingfield Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    The more i hear and see on the show jesse is a cry baby about everything he thinks that if you bend some pipe and hide some tanks you got a winner all he does is cry,cry,cry about everything the man sure has no clue of what it takes to beat JR in this one. jesse is just a lost and scared man that is why he puts everyone down all the time that is a sign of a man that neededs his mommy.

  95. 95 ferrill Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:47 pm

    well there’s only one chopper no brainier loud gang wins .jr builds the ugliest crap the other two r dirt bikes

  96. 96 kdawg Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    Jesse…Get over yourself, your not that great! You may be the best fabricator in the competition but when you are the best, everyone will know it and you’ll never need to say a word. Keep your mouth shut and quit being so damn cocky!

  97. 97 BIG D Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:49 pm

    WHAT A BUNCH OF CRAP JESSE WAHWAH CANT GET HIS BIKE DONE THEN THEY GIVE HM EXTRA TIME? THATS SOOO UNFAIR YOU ARENT THIER YOU LOOSE PLAIN AND SIMPLE. IF HE WINS IT WOULD BE A SLAP IN THE FACE TO EVERYONE THEY MADE THE CUT. SO THE SO-CALLED GODS BENT THE RULES. IM DONE WITH THIS IT’S NOT FAIR!!!!

  98. 98 ferrill Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    it’s a sad thing nose holes jr will win

  99. 99 ferrill Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:53 pm

    if u talk with caps your gay

  100. 100 ferrill Dec 11th, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    james and sr. bikes look like those little honda trail 50′s

  101. 101 jim in Marissa Dec 11th, 2012 at 10:00 pm

    Some one send Jesse some cheese to go with his wine!!! LOL Why agree to a time line if you cant finish in that time. what a joke!!!! Jesse should man up and withdraw!

  102. 102 bigchh Dec 11th, 2012 at 10:17 pm

    Why does Jesse always sound and act so gay?

  103. 103 bigchh Dec 11th, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    Junior will win it again in a walk-a-way. The other bikes look like toys next to his. Flat out, he’s just the most creative builder out there!

  104. 104 jason Dec 11th, 2012 at 10:28 pm

    Jesse James says no one has ever successfully combined Harleys with sport bikes. Has he never heard of ROLAND SANDS, a previous biker build off competitor?!?!?!?

  105. 105 wildbill Dec 11th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    2 sport bikes and a revamp do not make a Chopper Build Off !!!! Jesse was late..so sorry..follow the rules. If Junior or Senior were late JJ would have talked pure s%$#

  106. 106 Jessica Dec 11th, 2012 at 10:43 pm

    I hope you get it Jesse!

  107. 107 dan gunter Dec 11th, 2012 at 10:49 pm

    Jesse is the master builder, ask yourself this who would have build a hand built chopper the master or a bunch of wannabe computerized yes men. A man that can still work with hands is thing of the past.
    Hange in there Jesse they can never do what you can do.

  108. 108 Jesse for life Dec 11th, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    Its funny how you can tell who all like Jr. and Sr.. Keep bashing Jesse, your only making him better. He is a true bike builder and all Jr and Sr are doing is riding his wave. Who cares if he missed the deadline, thats part off building anything!!!!!

  109. 109 Human Decency Dec 11th, 2012 at 11:20 pm

    Too bad having bike-building skills doesn’t make you a better human being. Our character is our legacy, not a skill set. Jesse James will have to “live” with his complete lack of character as his legacy on his death bed someday.

  110. 110 Roco Dec 11th, 2012 at 11:22 pm

    Im voting for that sweet 67 Gibson Explorer.

  111. 111 Dave Dec 11th, 2012 at 11:36 pm

    Jesse, you’re a legend in your own mind, the public has spoken.. dude!

    I would pay you to get in the rind with me for 1 round bud.

  112. 112 Nicky10lbs Dec 11th, 2012 at 11:42 pm

    I said this last year,and I will say it again . Let them do a build off by themselves.
    Nobody to help except for holdings things. Complete build off (One on One). Jesse would easily win. It’s a popularity contest. They just announce Little Paul won (SHOCKING). Then make them do a car One on One. Jesse is better ,but people hate him. That’s why I like the guy.

  113. 113 where's Robert Ford when you need him... Dec 11th, 2012 at 11:47 pm

    Justice served. The bikes that met the deadline placed first and second, and the better of those two won. Oh, and case you missed it Jesse acted like a little bitch again. Backed off of Aaron but bowed up on Richard cause he knows Aaron wouldn’t stop until he had his throat in his jaws.

  114. 114 doc Dec 11th, 2012 at 11:59 pm

    Shoot, i missed it again. Who won?

  115. 115 05FLHRC Dec 12th, 2012 at 12:09 am

    Not sure that PJD should have won this one. Impressed by Gas Monkeys offering. And, for the first time in 20 some years, Jessie finally built something other than a Diablo with different foot pegs. Actually showed some signs of intellegence.

  116. 116 JAMES_H8R Dec 12th, 2012 at 12:40 am

    GAS MONKEY DID IT WITH OUT ALL THE FANCY CNC MACHINERY, LOOK WHAT THE OCC, PJD OR JESSE MILLION DOLLAR SHOP TO G, MONKEY 10,000 DOLLAR SHOP, JJ DID TALK TO MUCH SMACK, SR ACTING LIKE HE’S SO GREAT, ONLY THING HE DOES GREAT IS HIRE PEOPLE WHO DOES WHAT HE WANTS, JR VERY TALENTED FABRICATOR, JESSE THINKS HE’S LIVE’ BACK IN THE 1700′S AS A BLACK SMITH, SORRY JJ OUT DATED JACK ASS, HE SHUT HIS SHOP DOWN BECAUSE AFTER SCREWING OVER SANDRA BULLOCK, NO ONE GAVE HIM BUSINESS, NOW HE MOVE’S TO TEXAS SAME AREA AS SANDRA B, MY VOTE WAS, 1 GAS MONKEY, 2 PJD, 3 SR, 4 JJ, I WILL ALWAYS BE A GAS MONKEY FAN, I WISH RICHARD WOULD OF KICK JJ ASS, AS WE ALL KNOW JJ WILL CALL THE COPS BECAUSE HE’S NOT A REAL MAN, JJ IS A BONIFIED PUSSY.

  117. 117 The IMAGE Dec 12th, 2012 at 1:19 am

    This is WEIRD… I don’t think tha WE as outsides are able to judge with such knee jerk reactionisms as a visual media has presented that contest. There are several things that we have to take into account before we judge. This is a popularity contest… Paulie built a serious bike, NO QUESTIONS ABOUT IT. I am KINDA TEAM JR. JESSIE comes off a lot abrasive, But I understand that GENUIS PERSPECTIVE DOES THAT TO SOME PEOPLE. James knows his stuff inside and out… I don’t think that we will understand all the details or innovations that Jessie built by hand on that ROCK SOLID looking Speedster Hauler @$$kicker. Hairy & Flairy were a suprise for second, but I do like them… Thay are not Chip Foose, but this was a respectable showing for Richard and the guy that does all the work. The Bike that OCC put together looks super sturdy, and the new tech rubbs against the old school ( Jessie James dominated ) perspective that we are used to seeing from him. Paul Jr. did deliver a better box… That Bike looks like a winner from the gate, but this is so many genre being pushed through a straw…. So much talent, going into the challenge it is so hard to gauge results so close to the results…. Even the lemon law give you 30 days to test drive the vehicle. I just gave my opinion I live the fusion and the color on Jessies’ Bike. I gotta get off my Black @$$ and offer KUDOS to everyone involved. Y9ou are all talented and derseving ( not in a Re Re award way )

  118. 118 jusmy2cents Dec 12th, 2012 at 2:22 am

    I think it is sad that none of these builders shows any kind of respect for each other. With the exception of Aaron. At least he did say he use to look up to Jesse. I think fame has went to their heads. Each one of these guys are obviously talented in what they do. Why can’t they put their egos aside and just apprieciate each others work? I fully expect Aaron to go out on his own now. He is far too talented to work for sombody else.I think he will go far.Just where would OCC be now if not for the show? I think they would still have Jr and would be building bikes in the old shop. These guys lost themselves in the fame and fortune. Too bad. As for Jesse he would still be in California at West Coast choppers doing what he loves to do. With out all the publicity he would not have the bad reputation he has built for himself.
    Fact is. Just because these guys have television shows does not make them any better than each other or anybody that builds bikes. Come on. Just do a search on google on custom bikes. there are thousands out there that would put any of these bikes to shame. that bein said . It does not mean they are better just different. beauty is in the eys of the beholder. Personally my ’78 shovelhead suits me just fine and I didn’t have to mortgage the house to buy it.

  119. 119 screwie3 Dec 12th, 2012 at 3:07 am

    who in the right mind finds jesse good he is a compleate ass wipe

  120. 120 john reed Dec 12th, 2012 at 3:16 am

    The discovery channel wins.
    They make a lot of programs like this filled with arrogant dick heads that believe their own bullshit .
    They drive me crazy but I cant stop watching

  121. 121 jusmy2cents Dec 12th, 2012 at 3:51 am

    yeah , your right john reed. like the host mentioning that jesse’s family was brought up in the argument the night before between ricard, aaron and jesse. then saying they had beefed up security. please. he then proceeded to tell ricard and aaron “gentel men and i use that term loosely” that was a smack in the face. they would have eat it up if there had been a fight. i do agree that discovery has made millions off these guys. but the guys ave profitted more. and most have sold their souls for it. terrible sportsmanship. in the final breake down. jesse and sr. got their ass’s whooped by a pink bike.

  122. 122 Nelson Dec 12th, 2012 at 9:07 am

    Jr and Sr definitely know what they are doing but there bikes are show pieces that have to be parked at all times and kept in a bubble. Jesse James is a true genious. He mentioned that you have to put love in the piece you build and he is right. His craftsmanship and skill set is untouchable. Jesse brought a true bike to the build off last year and lost in 2nd place to Jr. What a joke. A true biker wants to ride anywhere and everywhere and be able to trust the piece of machinery he is on. Jesse’s bike will can drive around the planet 10 times and not even need a tune up. Jesse hands down is the best at what he does. Go Austin Speed Shop!!!!!

  123. 123 T.Cloke Dec 12th, 2012 at 11:37 am

    when i heard the biker build off was comin back i was happy.these guys r good at buiding these rideable motorcycles.there is a but.this build off stinks how miney off these guys played by the rules.bike getting done on time 2.bike rode to the build off 1.bike trailered 3.i like jjs bike last year.you could ride it.this years bike was more of a cafe bike an a good show of talent.That looks fun.The gmg guys i could really inspiered me to start lookin for a bike.i seem to like fred.jr and sr take them bikes you put together.in them sheds you got at home or your guys musuem.

  124. 124 gwen Dec 12th, 2012 at 11:45 am

    This was a waste. For a title of Revenge, the builders should of been Junior, Senior and Jesse. Not some wannabees who can’t follow the rules and build a bike. Their attitude and actions toward the real bike builders where childish and repulsive. I guess you just can’t have a show without a comedy element. I felt the addition of fast and loud was a stinging slap in the faces of Jesse, Senior and Junior. Fast and loud don’t belong on tv. The talk of disqualifying Jesse was nonsense, those texans didn’t start from scratch and do a build, they remodeled, they should of been disqualified. The criteria wasn’t met and the Discovery Channel should of disqualified them.
    I want to congratulation Senior, Junior and Jesse on excellent bikes. I felt they met the mark and went over it. If I were the three mentioned above I would avoid another bike build off.

  125. 125 T.S. Dec 12th, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Jesse is such a loser!!!!! Grow up!!!!

  126. 126 Steve O Dec 12th, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    JJ….how come we never saw your bike racing down the streets in Vegas? Did it ever run under its own power? Is it just a paperweight? Your skill set appears to have failed you. Again. And again. And again. And again.

  127. 127 tbonz Dec 12th, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    You know…I can see Jessie’s point…this is a popularity contest. He had the best bike last time round and lost. Paul Jr has never been a great builder of anything other than “Theme Bikes” I mean come on…Jessie’s right he does have more skills than all of them together. Jr is, has and always will be a piece of shit media whore, there was a reason he never went on the original “Biker Build Off” And Gas Monkey…give me a break, they didn’t even build a bike, they restored an old harley…granted Jessie and Sr should have built choppers but they know its not about the bikes anymore…it’s all about the Media Whore Paul Kardashian I mean Jr

  128. 128 Phillip Williams Dec 12th, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    GAS MONKEY SUCKS!!! I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE GUY (OTHER THAN AARON TURN A WRENCH). If anybody should be disqualified is should be gas monkey…that took a Harley, stripped it down and represented it. Of course it has a title jerk offs it was built by Harley-Davidson. I have lost respect for Jesse over his personal life, but this is a motorcycle buildoff, not a popularity contest. I really respect Jr. for how he has handeled his father and Sr. was/is such a prick so I figured Junior would win based on Discovery morons and not true wrench turners. Jesse said it himself “…as long as they continue to mention his name in conversation when talking about building skills, he is the benchmark…” ‘nough said

  129. 129 al zill Dec 12th, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    They all were great. But fast and loud should have got more votes. After all it’s a Harley.

  130. 130 johnnie Dec 12th, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    what a joke jesse james is im the best nobodey can do what i do i got a vision such a joke and what a crybaby it looked like he was going to break out in tears when he lost the gas monkey guys should have kicked your butt that would have been helarious the gas monkey guys were the best like they said we will beat him with a pink bike and they did plus they road theres there i like there show to and off jesses show it sucks like he does why do they even have it on t v i no to see you cry lol lol what a looser

    Jesse James says no one has ever successfully combined Harleys with sport bikes… Jesse, you must have forgotten about John Reed’s Vee … And that you wanted one… ;) And what exactly do you call a Buell?

    Jesse James is a f**ktard!

    He needs to drop his ego, drop his show, and disappear from the face of the earth.

    Billy Lane is a way better bike builder than any of the “talented builders” on this lame excuse of a build off!

    Sir,
    Thanks for the update on the last minute scrambling of Team Jesse.
    I’m requesting your assistance with possibly contacting someone to truly appreciate the farce referred to as LIVE REVENGE. I have never written in to anything before and I have been riding since 1969. I now own ten motorcycles including 250cc gas savers, cruisers, touring, and super-sport. I also owned two home built choppers in the 70’s.
    I’m hoping through your help to show that DC screwed up the build off and the people watching have no idea of true craftsmanship and innovation; that Paul Sr absolutely floored me with his build OUT-FING-STANDING; and last but far from least to highlight “The Craftsman” – Jesse James. His relentless integrity to truly construct a legitimate prototype motorcycle in weeks, that harley and the rest of the motorcycle industry can’t accomplish in years or even decades, should have been a major discussion and lauded on the las vegas stage. Secondly, Paul Sr’s total manufacturing of his aluminum prototype, with futuristic rear suspension, should have also been a huge feature, just under Jesse’s machine. I would love to be able to contact a serious motorcycle magazine and encourage them to feature Jesse’s and Paul Sr’s prototypes with true honor and sincerity – far away from discovery channel hack job – without a competition. I gathered from the show there is some respect between Jesse and Sr, and that should be displayed with their prototype accomplishments. I would love to see the prototypes on a legitimate track with huge smiles of pride, knowing there are people who know what they really accomplished.

    Not only did Jessica James lose to Junior again, he lost to a couple of guys who did nothing more than clean up an old bike. This show was supposed to be about “choppers,” yet James and Senior showed up with a Cafe style bike and a hybrid dirt bike. James keeps mouthing off about the Teutels not making their own stuff, but taking things off the shelf. Other than the frame and “tins,” what does James make himself—the engine, trans, wheels, tires, forks, etc? Hardly. Jr and Sr make more of the bike in house than James does. James is a whacked out wise-ass, with no class and what looks like little more than a 6th grade education. He sounds like Dustin Hoffman’s character in “Rainman” every time he opens his big mouth. James a “bike God?” There are many bike builders out there that could kick James’ ass on a daily basis. I certainly hope this is the last we see of this big mouth loser. I can’t end this without taking a shot at Discovery for sticking us with totally “lame” hosts these last two years.
