    Great I miss having a bike build show there hasn’t been one on the air since Biker Build Off. I hope it has a focus on building and fabrication not the drama seen on other “bike” shows. I wish them luck, I will check it out.

    No drama, no audience, no sponsors, cancelled!

    I have to agree with both LoneRider and Rodent on this one.

    I’m in for watching the show, as I really like the original series of Biker Build-Off, when the had something like a month to complete the builds. Unfortunately, I’m afraid that the TV drama will put a damper on things. We’ll see.

    This going to be very fast build on a very tight budget.

    I like the 15,000 budget as it means keeping things reasonable.

    Man hours and creativity will dictate how these builds come off not mega bucks.

    Looking forward to it.
    But any drama-moronics and it gets switched off pronto.

    I have high hopes, but a few things to keep in mind

    1. No fake drama, we have enough of that crap on Discovery and Velocity

    2. Make everyone stick to the timeline and budget (seriously….. no mysterious “hey, I a buddy has this
    S&S stroked supercharged turbo pan shovel sitting around and he said we can have it for the build”

    If its all based on twitter, how do you stop the builders from using paid tweet services? I know how to get 5K, 10K, 50k followers right now (for a price)…. what’s stopping other savvy builders out there from doing the same.

    Good luck with the show…. I will be watching (until the first field trip to go skydiving happens, or the first “wacky character” appears and causes hijinks. Then…. back to tivo’d Barrett Jackson and Mecum reruns.
