Paul Teutul Jr, Paul Teutul Sr and Jesse James Build-Off

The Corporate sponsored bikes they build always appear impractical and contain props and fluff.
For that reason this weeks special is more interesting.
Paul Teutul Sr & Jr, teams again built impractical show machines.
Teutul Sr's team built an electric powered, track drive, trike that cannot be driven on the road.
In contrast to Jesse James team built custom bike that could be riden as much as a rider wished.

I'll be iterested to see what the viewers vote as the best build.

The regular series is not a must watch show for me. Personally I am only a moderate "fan".
It's mostly about the people and secondarily about the bikes.

VOTE:

Jesse James,


Paul Teutul Jr,


Paul Teutul Sr


Anybody Watch this weeks competition?

Just me, but I WILL change the channel if either Teutul comes onto the screen.

Jesse James, on the other hand . One of the best "car guy" shows I have EVER seen was his show where he got a bunch of the original custom car guys in (really OLD guys...) and gave then a '53 Chev two door. They chopped it, sectioned it and I believe, channeled it. It was incredible to watch, and Jesse said that he was in AWE of these craftsmen!
No fighting, yelling or throwing tantrums. Just journeymen doing their art.

If it wasn't a soap opera ended by hastily throwing together a cookie cutter chopper bike with two or three custom CNC machined parts, I might watch it.

A few shows back, Senior floated the idea of an OC-themed restaurant chain, sort of the Hard Rock Cafe of OC. I thought that was pretty funny, but these guys have done pretty well for themselves so far in their fifteen minutes of fame, near-foreclosure of the OCC building notwithstanding. They've milked the show to live beyond their means, forged lots of marketing deals, grabbed free equipment and experiences (military flights, etc), and get treated like rockstars at big events. That's what they like, and they're enjoying the ride.

Someday is not a day of the week.

They should combine it with the Real Housewives of Orange County to increase it's entertainment value. To these guys a custom chopper is browsing the aftermarket parts catalogs, a few cosmetic tweaks and a custom paint job and presto - a completely unrideable motorcycle (can't lean more than 10 degrees, no front brake, limited front suspension and no rear suspension) that looks over the top comical.

If I had the money for what one of these cost I would buy a Ducati Multistrada or BMW GS and save the rest.

I did watch the previews . . .I liked Jesse James saying you could actually ride his bike, which is true. Jr's bike is a show queen, and senior didn't even build a bike. Either way, anyway, an OCC bike would probably make it ten miles down the road before all the bondo started to fall off.

Their projects aren’t motorcycles, they’re `rolling art’. Taken as the latter I find them pretty impressive. As the former, I think they’re ridiculous.

Jesse James is 100 times the fabricator that either Teutle is...

OCC are bike assemblers....yes they bought some CnC equipment and designed some of their own parts but JJ does it with his hands.....\

No contest....

that track trike is ridiculous....whats the point???

I don't like hard tail bikes but the Jesse James bike is somewhat functional. The Junior bike looks like something out of a Jules Verne book. Seniors contraption is ummm...wow I dunno. This whole deal is more about persona than bike building. Good on Junior for prevailing....and his wife sure is easy on the eyes....but If I had to "ride one to Sturgis and back" I'd have to opt for the Jesse James machine....as long as my chiropractor was following closely behind in a motorhome

I watch the show because it is entertaining, but I always end up angry with the "bikes" they "build". It was hilarious how Jesse attacked them for being hacks, and he didn't let up even face to face. The sad fact is that most people that watch probably never have or will ride, and therefore voted on an art project not a bike.

Jesse's was the only bike on the show. Hopefully he will have his own show again. That would probably be more worth watching than American Chopper (though I still don't know if I would call it good tv). I did love Monster Garage though.

Be nice if you could see the actual totals for the voting, or maybe you can, and I'm just not looking in the right place.
