Jesse James Discovery Build-Off Bike

You wanted more pictures of it. Here they are, provided to me by Jesse James. There is what you see – metal work  (chromoly 4130) – and what you can’t see – the mechanical prowess – As Jesse says “The devil is in the details”

    Me thinks Eric Buell came up with this design 20+ years ago!

    JJ why are you such a cry baby anymore? Your ego obviously can not handle the truth.

  3. 3 Steve N Dec 12th, 2012 at 11:26 am

    Thank’s Cyril.

    Awesome Engineering and has it’s own cool factor. However… something went awry here. JJ seemed off his game speaking during the show live. Seems to me he knew he was F***ed by having build issues and showing up late. Maybe he wasn’t happy with the build in the end? I agree it makes one think of the Buell. He was doing a lot of trash talk early on in such a way he knew he’s was screwed when it came to voting because it was a popularity contest, not a build contest.

    Something didn’t feel right from the beginning. Crazy talented builder. Can’t help but think he threw his hat into this mess just to help the ratings on his own current show as he rebuilds his career ( though he probably has enough $ to pull the plug and retire )

    Love him or hate him you have to admire his talent. Jesse and Senior both totally out classed the other builders. Jesse’s mostly hand crafted master piece is a great blend of old and new technology. The fuel injected , ECM controlled modern drive train blended with the old world craftsmanship skills that brought it all together. Should have won hands down. Except apparently it’s not about the bikes.

  6. 6 Shawn Dec 12th, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    It’s a nice bike. I do find it interesting that a man who pushed the boundaries in the chopper world and played a large part in why the chopper/motorcycle industry blew up in the early 2000’s, has decided to start building street fighters. The metal work is amazing…. but the design seems dated. I’ve seen streetfighters built decades ago that are more modern looking….. But that’s just my useless opinion. 🙂

  7. 7 JM Dec 12th, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Crazy cool bike. Hope you have some asbestos pants with a red-hot header a mere 1/2 from your right shin.

    Production quality of the live event was painful. No, really, it was hard to watch.

  8. 8 Jim Watson Dec 12th, 2012 at 1:31 pm


    Good job to all the builders. I watch the show & read this blog because I like to see what people build. And there was some nice work done by some talented metal fabricators. Everybody has a “special interest” and mine is dirt riding & racing! I would have loved to see someone break out and do a modern Street Tracker style with a XR 750 bullet. . . Dirt’s for racing, asphalt is for parking cars. . .

  9. 9 voxnulla Dec 12th, 2012 at 1:32 pm

    “Except apparently it’s not about the bikes.”

    That is just a pathetic fabricated excuse to obfuscate the fact that you can’t stand other people having different tastes, likes and dislikes. Grow up.

    If it wasn’t about bikes, then the Gas Monkey would never have got 2nd place. You can’t argue that those guys did not do what many purist would consider “doing a chopper like it used to be done”. The fact that they ended up second was a clear appreciation of that fact. You can not have your cake and eat it too.

    It’s true that JJ has a formidable skill set, unfortunately vision, direction and a becoming demeanour are not part of the skill set. If it’s true that builders put their soul into the bike, then JJ’s bike was one fulgy rotting piece of work.

    It is very much evident that it’s NOT about who has the most air time or who has the handsomest mug. The bike, the skill, the vision, the style, the demeanour and the presentation all work together. JJ only has the skill. PjD seemingly had the best balance of these factors.

    So stop whining about it.

  10. 10 Sharrack Dec 12th, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    Sr’s bike looked to have more friendly geometry.
    Jesse’s bike is nice but looks too small to actually ride.
    Made for a rider about 5′ 5″

    In the end…..Matt Hotch said it best yesterday…. The build off is a disgrace to many who thought so much of it years ago.

    Clueless non builder host
    No mention of any engine stats or design and engineering info.
    Contest decided by the tv watching public
    Uneeded musical guest
    The bike building industry pretty much nixed from the show.

  11. 11 luis Dec 12th, 2012 at 1:58 pm

    I gave my vote to the gas monkey guys purely because the rode it to the show. That should have been a requirement for all of them.

  12. 12 Littlerider22 Dec 12th, 2012 at 2:21 pm

    Ummmm….. this “fantastic” Buell was built by a guy with so much skills and an humble attitude that it lost against a 45-year technology motorcycle , painted pink and called “Fred”.

    While I can applaud the technology and the time spent on it (well, not even during the deadline), that’s the second build-off JJ lost, no matter if he cares or not (which we all know he doesn’t).

    Hey Jesse,…. Erik Buell wants his 20-year design back…

    This biker build-off was a disgrace to everybody, the industry, the parts manufacturers, the public, and the poor people that think that building bikes is all about bashing others, fighting in casinos, and listening to Sweet Home Alabama while drinking beer. What a bunch of losers, all of them.

    I am out.

  13. 13 Ernie L Dec 12th, 2012 at 3:09 pm

    JJs’ bike a Buell ripoff – I don’t think so..

    what it does have in common with a Buell
    it’s not a chopper,
    it has a short wheelbase (based on appearances only, I really have no way of knowing),
    its oil bag is not in the usual location
    and inverted forks.

    So is every bike with those attributes now a Buell wanna be?..I sure hope not ..and If so JJ has plenty of company.

    I hope we get to see some particulares on JJ’s bike..The times I have leaned forward to try and decern morn details (I know it doesn’t work) while watching a “bike builder” show on TV are far and few between. When JJ’s bike came on the screen..I leaned..

  14. 14 Jason Brach Dec 12th, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Advice to Jesse. Competing in a build-off with Senior and Junior places you in the same entertainment/clowns category. Bad business decision. Losing 2 times against Junior makes you a definitive has been. Not finishing your bike for the show would have been a blessing . Maybe you should take Cyril as agent to revamp you career. It starts with being humble and polite. The bad boy image you fabricated for yourself doesn’t work anymore. It’s sad to see you losing all the fans you acquired a decade ago. You are still worth a lot in the industry if you want to change your attitude.

  15. 15 Greeko Dec 12th, 2012 at 3:34 pm

    Each time he talks, Jesse is committing suicide.

  16. 16 KL Dec 12th, 2012 at 3:47 pm

    It’s a joke that people keep calling this bike a buell rip off. When Roland Sands builds a sport bike style custom you never hear that comment. What people really should be complaining about is that the biker builds used to be about bikes not about a bunch of guys hating on each.

  17. 17 RedMan Dec 12th, 2012 at 3:55 pm

    Fail – on all counts. 1) poorly conceived ergonomics 2) not finished in the agreed to time frame 3) visually unnappealing 4) “I made every piece myself” lie (machined the gears himself huh? 5) piss-poor attitude. Sorry JJ, your career just took a boot to the face.

  18. 18 Seven Dec 12th, 2012 at 3:56 pm

    JJ comes off as too good to be a part of it. Yet he agreed to be a part of it. His arrogance and lack of
    communication skills all end up going against him in front of the camera. He talked the talk but did not walk the walk. He had more time than everyone else to finish and he still lost. I can appreciate that he did most of the build by himself but still find no excuse since he agreed to the original terms of the contest. That coupled with his attitude and general state of being I found myself happy that he did not win last night. His bike was his brain child and if I consider it art, in my mind as long as he accomplished and built what he saw in his minds eye then he accomplished his goal. That does not mean that anyone else has to like it in that sense. For the contest I think it was a poor choice to build. I hope he has eaten a little humble pie after ragging on the GM boys for not belonging in the contest. They have got the heart and the right attitude. You used to…. why don’t you go out and try to get it back?

  19. 19 Doc Dec 12th, 2012 at 4:01 pm

    Discovery Build-Up…i mean Build-Off
    PJD = Unrideable quasi-cool-looking bike my little nephews like because it’s a large cartoon come to life. Feels “themy” (if that’s even a word) but that’s what junior makes so you know what you’re gonna get.
    Fast n Loud = Cool shovel that Aaron built while Richard stood around “drinkin beers and doin burn-outs, Wooo!”. I see that bike EVERY weekend in SoCal with usually some really cool old dude riding it. Props for the attempts to pull at the heart-strings of America with all the HD but nothing special just a cool bike. Richard was talking lots of shite though. Uncalled for shite that ususally gets you knuckled up. JJ shoulda shut his mouth on TV.
    Senior = Coolest bike OCC has made in a while but CNC machined? What exactly was built by a human??? The CNC MACHINE!
    Jesse = Cool bike, streetfighter look, better than a buell and looks dangerous to ride. Jesse got my vote….too bad my little nieces and nephews got to vote. Junior wins again on popularity and ridiculousness. Who the hell is the host? Who the hell produced that low-budget crappy production? Where the hell was Lynard Skynard? (I thought they were all free-birding it in heaven)????

    I wanna see Jesse, Matt Hotch, Trevelen, Ness, HUZE, SugarBear, and the rest of the real builders do an old school build-off like when they used to matter!!!!! Like a royal rumble death-match of bike builders!!!!!

  20. 20 Salisbury Express Dec 12th, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    Tranny. Good idea, but not for a tv build-off. People judge what they see, not what they don’t see. Good in bike show where there are judges.

  21. 21 BobS Dec 12th, 2012 at 4:43 pm

    I used to love Jesse back in the Monster Garage days. After watching him during this debacle I’m pretty sure the pipes on that bike don’t make a “potato potato” sound, more like ” a-hole a-hole a-hole”.

  22. 22 Jack S. Dec 12th, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    The guy has talent, hes done it all, he has skills, money, tools, connections, fame, what else is he really doing this for? To me, its just about getting TV time and getting paid at the end of the day for him. There’s no drive or respect to bust your ass because he doesn’t have anything to prove anymore.
    Like the old Build off Shows, they used to pull out new no-name guys that were hungry to make a name for themselves and put everything they had to make a bike that was bad ass. This show was just a WWF meets Build off show. And for a turd of a bike like the on Jr built, its obvious who the show caters too.

  23. 23 Blackmax Dec 12th, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Jesse got a lot of talent & I know he had problems.
    He would’ve won if he had stuck with what he knows best.
    A WCC CFL frame a bitchin’ motor & some brakes.
    Why he tried to copy a buell is beyond me ????

  24. 24 Brescia Dec 12th, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    The builders, the bikes, the host, Lynrd Skynrd. All a disaster.

  25. 25 J. Miller Dec 12th, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    Jesse, Senior, Junior. All 3 should retire graciously. Discovery should discover new talents and a new TV formula.

  26. 26 Jason Brach Dec 12th, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    American Chopper Live had a TV audience of 3,900,000 viewers. All Nielsen results are here.

  27. 27 golfish Dec 12th, 2012 at 7:57 pm

    I guess I have a different idea of what a chopper is.

    I would only ride one of them, and I’ve never owned an HD. I think a 67 FLH sounds like a good idea for my next toy.

  28. 28 MADrider Dec 12th, 2012 at 8:00 pm

    Why if EVERYONE KNEW that this was a set up, did evryone watch? Wonderfull craftsmanship and execution on JJ bike. Discovery Please stop with the FAKE biker crap. Discovery and that crap company pilgrim film They don’t care how they portray the bike building/riding community. We need
    REAL bike programming made by and for people who actually ride and live bikes! Not money grubbing jerkoffs.

  29. 29 Cantrell Dec 12th, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    Thank goodness for Cyril and all the comments posted here. Saved me from having to go find a TV and watching these type shows.


  30. 30 Brandon Dec 12th, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    On the lift the bike looks good. On the ground, completed, not so much. Why?

  31. 31 roscoe Dec 12th, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    Notice the nod to PJD on the side of the bike. Very cool.

  32. 32 John Dec 12th, 2012 at 10:11 pm

    Emperor. Clothes. Q.E.D. Fugly, fugly. Stop the sycophancy over JJ. (No relation to outlaw). A pussified, lazy, tough-taking millionaire. How naive are you? Craig ‘Pilgrim’ is attempting to rehabilitate James in order to launch a new show, with James (not his real name) as a fake tough guy builder with ‘real ‘ tude’. Yeah, he’s been tough from what. His great military background? His travel around the block from one suburb to the next in Socal. JJ: the mean years. Newport to Hollywood. Take his word for it. Big mouth, no brains. Fought a kid from the drama club. Yells at workers in shop and runs away to talk to the camera. Pilligian loves drama, would have kept with Sr (loves his compliance to the narrative of fake fight, fight, fight), but Jr didn’t like the stress. Jesse just wants to be famous, again, and is more than wlling, he’s desperate to be back on television as Craig’s lapdog. Get a brain, Dallas against Austin. A new money-making dream team for American Choppers. Phony, contrived, yes you sheep, but at least Monkey’s seemed to be having blustery fun at Pilgrim tv’s exciting new narrative storyline.

  33. 33 Tina Marie Dec 12th, 2012 at 10:24 pm

    @ John
    Could this be the new program?

  34. 34 courtney Dec 13th, 2012 at 2:36 am

    Yep. I agree with chewarrior..

    And I can only imagine the outrage and ridicule that most JJ fans would be spewing here had Jr. decided to cop the same shitty attitude as JJ and flaunt the “fake TV show deadline” just because he’s, well, by God Jr., lol! Oh, and then rolling it out on stage like a motorless scooter?! Really?

    JJ’s got talent, no doubt about that. But he seems to be imploding before our very eyes. And that’s a shame to see.

  35. 35 No Hope For The Pope Dec 13th, 2012 at 8:52 am

    The first time I saw Jesse was on his first TV special. He was gas-welding a tank and when he finished, he sat back and said “Now that’s a bitchin’ weld.” It looked like something done by a drunken apprentice and I knew right then what he was full of. His twitter handle should be The Poop Of Welding.

    Yes, he has skills, but he’s not nearly as skilled as he likes to think he is. His whole “I don’t care about the build-off” shtick reminds me of Pee Wee Herman and “I meant to do that.”

  36. 36 plexed Dec 13th, 2012 at 9:03 am

    Yes, a bit strange there was videos of every builder riding their bikes, except JJ. Not a dis, but it would have been cool to see if JJ ‘s bike actually ended up handling like a Ducati with the torque, power, and sound of the V-twin. It would be interesting to see the bike in action to determine what a success it was. I definitely was left with a few big question marks.

  37. 37 Rodent Dec 13th, 2012 at 9:41 am

    It was just another bought and paid for reality show and the real winner was the Discovery Channel.BFD!

  38. 38 Harold Mutter Dec 13th, 2012 at 9:44 am

    Great bike Jesse. If you copied Buell then Buell copied Suzuki, Ducati, etc. Love the thought and engineering.

  39. 39 In the know Dec 13th, 2012 at 11:18 am

    Having not watched the show and only seen the pictures/read the reviews, I’m glad I didn’t take the time to watch it and form the opinion most people have.
    I’m looking at the creativity of the build. Regardless of the style, it’s still a build that most of the posters here could not accomplish.
    Craftsmanship, rideability and style should be the deciding factors…not the audience popularity BS.

    I think Sr’s took the cake, then Jesse, then PJD, but the Gas Monkey guys…well…nice resto, but it was a build off. PJD’s was pretty gaudy, but at the least, it looked a hell of a lot more rideable than the last monstrosity.
    Give it to Sr. and Jesse for BOTH changing up what they built from last time…PJD simply unglued the bells and whistles off the last bike and put a new paint job on.

  40. 40 Mac miss Dec 13th, 2012 at 11:55 am

    It is one if his best pieces of work . If late cut points . Was this the cafe racer build off or was it open

  41. 41 The truth is so painful! Dec 13th, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    I like my Buell Lightning better! Oil in seat in Florida is as good as an ejection seat on a helicopter.

  42. 42 chewarrior Dec 13th, 2012 at 2:22 pm

    Thanks for posting the pics Cyril. But I think what we (Jesse’s fans who voted for him) are looking for is footage of Jesse tearing up the road on that badass piece of metal work and engineering. If you really want to make use of your tight relationship with Jesse to appeal to his fans, then have Jesse personally send you a short video and post that on the blog. That’s what I think his fans are chomping at the bit for and that would be interesting net-new news especially since his bike has been done for a few days now and discovery didn’t show any footage of him riding it.

  43. 43 live2rideaglide Dec 13th, 2012 at 4:28 pm

    It’s amazing how some can look right by the styling, engineering and hands on craftmanship of this
    bike , only to say ” Uh– it kinda looks like a Buell. So many can’t pass up a chance to dis JJ because of the other crap in his life , NO MATTER WHAT HE BUILDS. All those other guys would be working on lawnmowers and weedeaters on the side if JJ hadn’t started the whole TV/ chopper
    phenomenon aka Chopper Mania. I liked em all in a lot of ways , but the whole thing is a popularity
    contest not a build contest . Senior built a lawnmower last year , why can’t’ JJ build a sportbike?

  44. 44 18Bravo Dec 13th, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    “discovery (sic) didn’t show any footage of him riding it.”

    How true. It looked as if he had trouble even riding it onto the stage. Maybe that’s why there’s no footage?

  45. 45 John Dec 13th, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Check out Church of Choppers and see where Paul Jr. got his ideas for his Biker Build off winner. Moon Eyes Japan.

  46. 46 Shovelshot Dec 13th, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    This was horrible from start to finish!!! I was playing yahtzee on pogo while listening. Jr. won this hands down and I sure aint happy to say that. Gas Monkey’s was cool if you’re a chick. JJ makes me think of the ads you see for a $2500 bike on website pop-ups. I don’t care how much “fab” he did on it. Sr? I want a frame and lines. A headlight would probably be helpful as well. Don’t even get me started on the guy doing the MC’ing and the geezer rockers.

  47. 47 A 1 CYCLES INC. Dec 14th, 2012 at 10:18 am

    @chewarrior…..youll have to wait for footage..i have it on good authority .hes relaxing in costa rica

  48. 48 BC Dec 14th, 2012 at 12:04 pm

    WWF on two wheels, all the scriped drama based around “bike building” sells TV advertising. (America Chopper proved that.) Embarrassingly bad, and what do you end up with?…..two HD based quasi “sportbikes” a cartoon car bike and a clean little mild street chopper. Still not sure if Richard and Sr know which end of the wrench to hold. But it did draw ratings, a win for Discovery

  49. 49 MAH Dec 14th, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    I wish everyone would recognize that Roland Sands is the master. He’s not a sell-out, or not as much as these jokers are, and he builds incredible machines. All of this “chopper” garbage is exatly that, garbage and in time, it will pass. Jesse was right in what he was doing but it’s not the right time for it. Cafe bikes are a different breed. They are raw and exciting. They also tend to have vintage engines in them such as Triumph mills. I guess I’m leeding to a question. Why does the power plant have to be an HD engine? Can’t these guys work with something else than some boat anchor from the 40’s?? I like HD but, we are missing some huge originality points here. Not to mention that this entire show was a complete waste of TV air time because we all knew who was going to win. This had nothing to do with any of those machines. If Discovery wants to do it right, they would not reveal the builder until after the votes are in but I guess producing a show in such a manner could bring a few issues. I’d hate to say this but, even I can build the same thing Jr, Sr or Gas Monkey built but Jesse’s bike was a masterpeice of craftsmanship.

  50. 50 Redline Dec 14th, 2012 at 2:36 pm

    I guess engineering and ingenuity have nothing to do with these build offs anymore. The judging should be done by people who know bikes not people who have never owned, ridden or built their own bike! Congrats to junior for another “PIG IN LIPSTICK AND A DRESS”!!!!! The fix was definately in. I didnt care for what Jesse chose to build but c’mon, upside down transmission with a cradle mounted twin-cam. Thats engineering genious!!!!!

  51. 51 Nookster Dec 17th, 2012 at 1:07 am

    JJ is so full of himself its painful to watch. He couldn’t hold Eric Buell’s jock strap, and the bike he built looked like just another Buell knockoff.

  52. 52 MAH Dec 17th, 2012 at 12:44 pm


    Jesse has the right to be full of himself. The guy took years off from life to learn how to forge and how to work copper. Who else has the passion for motorcycle of fabrication to do that? None of these lame ducks. Jesse is a master fabricator. He pours himself into every bike he builds and he has the right to wave his middle finger to you if you don’t like his machine. Erik Buell is a racer from 30 years ago and his accomplishmsnts far surpass anything these tool bags will do with their lives.. Erik is also a class act because he has to be. He’s in the public eye and trying to succeed in a huge market while Jesse is a one man band sorta speak. He is the “Jesse James show” while Erik and his bikes are on the AMA circuit. Two totally different people because they have to be. I also don’t think Jesse’s bike is a Buell knock off. No Buell I’ve owned, seen, riden or built ever had a divorced transmission in it. This is more a Waken knockoff. Google it.

  54. 54 Boo Boo Mandy Dec 18th, 2012 at 7:27 am

    1. JJ bike was not a Chopper. 2. Looked like a chrome plated Yamaha Enduro. 3. I never saw it perform. Heard the delay was due to sculpture status of the bike. Yes, JJ the devil is in the details. Tranny did not work! 4. Rear end looked like Seniors bike. Ripped off Jason Fool’s rear end design.

    Senior bike had no headlight? Also did not look like a chopper. Could the bike do a lap around a dirt track?

    Aron put lipstick on a solid old bike. Yes, they listened to J.J. Last years rant. My bike is rider’s bike.

    Jr. built a theme chopper/sculpture. Gave the fans what they wanted. Made in the USA would have been a better slogan.

  55. 55 jeff f Dec 18th, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    jesse said, the devils in the details, i think billy lane said that years ago, no ahole jesse, i really enjoyed watching the build off, three bikes sucked and the gas monkey bike i would ride the shit out of, cant watch jesse n e more,he is just the greatest, probably the greatest a hole to ever get on tv, pure trash heap that was in the right place at the right time, his ass show sucks too, my 8 yr old loved the elcamino, thats right 8 yr old, pure crap, then the pure white Liberace hot rod, even sr didnt like that car, did u see his face , your all washed up jesse, glorified welder your not even that

  56. 56 tim r Dec 19th, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    As always….well done Jesse….so tired of are a visionary……stay the course man….

  57. 57 Bill Lillo Dec 25th, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    The problem is not Jesse James, it is the people that look at his motorcycle as that, a bike. You must have knowledge to see, understand, but most of all to be a fabricator yourself. Without this knowledge of mechanics, machining, tooling, welding, engineering, design, fabrication, jigs, fixtures, the thought process to be one with the machine you vision to build and the ability to be proactive in all of these process is so beyound what a person sees. Jesse James is one of the best if not the best, that Street Fighter or Sport Bike is anything but old technology, that is a hand crafted, new technology that people have not seen, and can not be seen unless you understand what you are looking at. If there was a build off, judged by real bike builders, not the public, no one could beat Jesse James, just to make sure everyone gets it, no one could beat Jesse James. Paul Jr. would have to be a fool not to take Jesse James up on his offer, to come stay at my house and let me teach you. First that is a very hi compliment to Paul Jr. because not everyone can do or learn these skills, Jr. is a complete asshole not to jump at the offer. There is so much to learn from Jesse James and so beyound the obvious, this is a gift to Jr. that no money can buy. I’ve been fabricating bikes & rods, cars, engines for 40 years and for me I wouldn’t hessitate, I would be there. Bill Lillo

    There are enough custom sporting bikes built with a big twin motor (not a Buell motor) to have a different type of bike show…

    Jesse – dial up Speed Channel or Discovery Channel & the Circuit of the Americas in your hometown & organize a track day with the following bikes

    1. Jesse’s latest above
    2. RSD’s HD track bike “No Regrets”
    3. Gregg’s Customs Warrior bike
    4. BTR Moto’s track bike

    Let’s see them in action on a track

  60. 60 Frank Feb 3rd, 2013 at 2:04 pm

    I personally think Sir Jesse built the coolest bike ever in the Radial bike. How could he top it? This harleyesque sport bike just doesn’t do it for me. Yes, many others have successfully built Harley powered sport bikes so don’t know what he’s trying to say there?? Even Harley built and raced their own semi-successfully in the 90’s plus the Buells plus all the other ones built by various builders.

    i dont know how u people choose bikes, common i dont care how hard it is to make this piece of shit,
    its the ugliest bike i’ve seen in my entire life, looks like it came out of a local garage…the proportions are all odd, take that chrome away, and see if it’s got any appeal left, if it has any!!!

    I love Jesse’s bike. I think it’s sad when an artist does something ahead of his/her time and nobody gets it except the artist. It doesn’t have a whole bunch of crap bolted onto it to make it look like something it’s not, like the old Paul designs. I also thought Paul Seniors bike was a close second with all the machined frame parts.

    That bike had so much potential. The pic at the bottom screams epic. How does it end up looking that bad in the end? The shape of that tail was an afterthought after the functionality of the the end made it look like the head of my dick. The wheels look like they were bolted on from a 94 GSXR. Purple??? and chrome?? bro no..just no. Please do that bike a favor and break it down to the pic at the bottom and start over. If anyone tells you that bike looks good, they are lying b/c they don’t to piss you off. Maybe that’s what you want.
