Default American Chopper build

If you watched American Choppers who do think won? I feel that Senior didn't get the memo that they were to build a bike.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I agree, that thing he built is some kind of off road toy.

Junior defiantly build the best rideable and original bike.

Ugh, this show has gone off the rails.

If I had to pick one, it would be JJ's bike. He built the only real bike, IMO. He's a major douchebag, but he does have a point about OCC and PJD and the bikes they build. Someday someone will have to explain how either of these guys would be in business, especially without the TV show.

Also, it's funny how the only guys that seemed to have fun with it were the guys at OCC. JJ and PJ were too busy talking about how wonderful and amazing everything they touch is.

"Reality" indeed..

Seems Jesse is the only one that truly builds a motorcycle. His only problem is when his mouth is open.
IMO it's by far the most beautiful bike. I'm getting older cause I can't stand that high steering tree. When it showed him riding it at the end of the show, he's having to lean left and right and stretch to try and see the road through that tree, would drive me crazy.

Juniors bike is nice, but like all the bikes..........."we just received the frame from blah blah, we just received the swingarm from blah blah, we just received the front end from blah blah......"

OCC's machine? No idea what they're thinking.

The only one that won was the Discovery channel selling advertising space.
All 3 of them are showmen or Sanford and son if you prefer. If there was some bashing from JJ it wouldn't be him. As for the other two if they didn't hire good designers and quality staff they would not even have a show.
JJ builds what hes known for and if asked the shops around here the would tell you about all the warranty work they have done in the past on his bikes.
Jr only knows hot to build bikes that look good on a poster or in a lobby's. Wounder how much it coast to rent that plain and tow it to his shop.
As for Senior he has lost it when the two split. But was that a ploy cause they were loosing popularity and the TV show was going to be canceled. After all the two would have to go back to selling steal and there fancy cars and house would be gone along with there over inflated egos.

Default What a show

It was fun to watch but I didn't see a bike I could ride. It is sure concerning how people believe that Juniors bike was best. The only contestent with anything close to a real bike was James and I doubt I could reach the bars.
