American Chopper: Biker Buildoff 2012

Anyone following this? Four-way buildoff between OCC, PJD, Jesse James, and the guys from Gas Monkey Garage. I guess the special airs Dec 10 and the LIVE episode on Dec 11 from Las Vegas.

Jesse James posted a photo of the GMG bike on his Twitter, despite his own bike not making the deadline and having to extend. Thoughts? Who do you think will take it this year?

Yeah, it's cool this year has another contender - the more the merrier! Looking at that picture, though, I don't know if GMG has a shot. As long as OCC doesn't come with another snowmobile this should be a good competition. I agree - Jr's winner last year was a work of art! Came close to voting for JJ, but Jr's was spectacular.

If this is supposed to be a chopper build, Jr is the only one who really did that in my opinion. Just looking at the bikes though, I like Sr's the best. I'm not a fan of GMD's bike at all. JJ's is neat and would probably be the most fun to drive and Jr's, once again, is a work of art although I'm not a fan of the exhaust setup.

I agree. Sr's looks a lot better than I thought, and it is one of the baddest sounding bikes I've heard (Jr's Anti-Venom is the baddest sounding). Yeah, up close the GMG bike is shoddy work - nothing I could ever do myself, but the paint is chipped, the welds are bad, and there wasn't much detail. Looking forward to JJ's arriving, but it really looks like JJ & OCC were in bed together.

What didn't you like about Jr's exhaust?

Just looked out of place to me. I don't like the 4 in-line header for a v-twin bike. I would have rather seen 2 fatter pipes twisting in there then going for a straight out exhaust. His is different, it's creative, just that one particular item didn't really do it for me.

Gotcha. I think on that Discovery blog link it has each of the bikes starting up and riding off. Jr's and Sr's sound mean, while GMG's is typical. Can't wait to hear JJ's.
