Yeah, riding my bike now makes me not want a chopper. I'm fairly clam shelled and I feel a lot of wind at even just 60mph.

That would be a blast in the snow. With a windshield.

What the OCC and PJD fan boys fail to realize is that they are I've glorified accesorizers. Jesse actually fabs EVERYTHING on his bikes. From the frame up.

jesse is being an ***

senior is being the usual *** to his son and NOT working on the bike whatsoever (but he'll take the credit)

Jesse kind of has the right to talk smack against OCC/PJD. They don't fab their frames, they don't fab and they don't fab their wheels. Jesse does. The only thing Jesse doesn't build himself when putting together his bikes is the engine.

Jr. has built a few frames.

One thing I really don't like about Jesse bike is you really can't even drive it. Watch him when he'* ridding it. He can't see over the handle bars. He has to lean way over to the side just so he can see where he'* going. How long you think it will take for that to get old?

I will say this, the look on Jesse' face when the said Jr won, was priceless.

Jr won because a lot of people who watch that show don't know old school builders like Jesse. They've been brainwashed by technology and not pure talent.

They DIDN'T listen to Vin when he said vote for the best bike.

That is your opinion. I wouldn't drive any of them, but if I had to choose, I would take Jr. bike. It was a bike build off, not a old school chopper build off. Jesse came on to their show and challenged them. Jesse lost, not because he didn't build a great bike, but because he'* a royal jerk, and has a bigger ego then Sr. When the general public is voting, there'* more then just the finished product. It'* presentation. When your a jerk, you drive people away.
