I see a lot of bashing on Jesse. But honestly, he never asked to be put on TV. Obviously he didn't say no to it because that would just be bad business and he needed the money BAD. Jesse built his empire from the ground up. He started with nothing. He HAND pounds his fenders and tanks. He has a true love for build. He isn't out CNCing or buying parts that somebody else made or painted to throw on a bike and call it his custom build. Maybe his bikes that he sells are a little cookie cutter but why shouldn't those be? In reality he has built some sick one-off bikes for himself and his close friends like Kid Rock and Tyrese. If you haven't watched History of the Chopper or Motorcycle Mania then you would never see the true Jesse James. He pours his heart and soul into the bikes he builds and he has had a rough life getting to where he is.
Jesse is the reason I got into custom bikes and the reason I built my Ironhead to look like his El Diablo bikes. I modeled myself after him. And his bikes will go forever. Him and Kid Rock rode two bikes that he built all the way down to the Sea of Cortez in Mexico. So yes, he builds bikes you can ride.

And for that... Jesse James has my vote.

Agreed

Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

That's the best looking bike Jr has ever built in my opinion (except for the big a$$ hood ornament on the front fender).

I dig the bike outta OCC except for the ENTIRE front end.

Jesse didn't meet his deadline. He can boast about his skills all he wants, but it doesn't matter when he doesn't deliver.

Gas Monkey wins my vote. The bike is beautiful and functional. It's an HD, 'nuff said.

Jr.'s bike looks like a Victory Kingpin on acid. Sr.'s bike looks good except for those god awful forks. JJ's bike doesn't count because he couldn't finish on time (rulz is rulz). GM, Ride a generator, hardtail, Shov from Dallas to Vegas? They get my vote!

later, dozer

p.s. JJ's a cry baby (boo f'n hoo)
p.p.s. trade Sandra for that tatted up skank? what an idiot
p.p.p.s. contrary to what someone else posted Sandy gave him the boot

If you are a badass, you don't have to tell people you are.
If you are better than others, you don't have to say so- its recognized.
If you have to try to make yourself look better by kicking somebody else down- u won't.

All these guys have participated in the BS, although I think the network surely wants it to be part of the drama.

Dozer- I'm with you, Sandra for that skank! Nope

Spin cranks til they scream

+1 for Gas Monkey - their bike appealed to me the most.
Agree that Senior's bike was next coolest, except for the slab of a front-end.
Jesse's bike was late. I am glad he is a 'rule breaker' and all the rest of whatever he said on the program, he should not have been given any extra time. Still, I like his innovative thinking; it's just too bad he's a disorganized manager who has to do all the work himself.
The OCC exhaust concept was kind of cool (except for the square collector) but like all of their bikes, I get the sense that five miles of mild riding and it would start to make all the wrong kinds of noises (squeeks, rattles, etc.)

Vodka stinger with a whisky back, and step on it!

This show tonight feels so painfully forced like they are grasping for viewers.
