Now that I've seen the bikes i am rooting for gas monkey. I like the fact that they built a true chopper. They kept it historically correct by using a Harley frame motor and trans. I liked how clean the finished product was with all the throttle cable clutch cable and everything hidden inside the bars, all the electrical tucked in the frame. But the pink color
Jr did another themed bike which was ghey
Jesse did a sport bike themed chopper with power and handling in mind. I didn't like the fact that he couldn't finish the 6 week deadline and discovery awarded him 2 extra weeks to finish his build
Senior also had a sport bike themed chopper I really like the one off machines aluminum frame swing arm and front end. I really liked the time and effort they put into everything. The carbon fiber shock was pretty cool. The front end didn't really do it for me at all. But atleast he built a motorcycle this year.
Gas Monkeys bike was classic cool. I truly dig that. Single side lever on the bars, and that peanut tank was just retro bobber/cafe cool.
Jesse James bike I feel should be number one since i truly think that the idea behind a biker build off is to be able to BUILD YOUR BIKE. Gas Monkey, although cool, just restored and tweaked a classic, Jesse started from scratch.
HE SHOULD NOT OF BEEN AWARED MORE TIME. I think that was unfair and cheap of Discovery. I hear his logic behind "i build what i want when i want" but cmon man its a show.
Paul Jr built the same thing he always builds. A themed chopper low large and loud that was made well.
Sr stepped out of the box a bit i feel with the bike he choose. But also i think it was just a whole lot of cool machined parts. Eh, cool you guys can write a Rhino file.
I really don't care for any of the bikes. How about nobody wins, LOL. I have
met SR, Jr, Mickey, Codie all at the Golds gym in Newburgh NY. They all are
very nice and very approachable in person. I play ball with one of Jrs managers at the gym weekly. He even gave me free tickets for the bike show last year. I have seen Sr out riding many times on regular harleys while we were all leathered down for one of our runs. You can't mistake that mustache, LOL.
I used to watch all the OCC shows when it first started. But lost interest in it over the years. Curious to see what happens when the show is off of Discovery. I never really cared for Jesse James and he is coming off as a total ass on this build-off.
I hate to admit it but I like the Gas Monkey guys. I don't think their show will last long but for some reason it has captured my attention.
I think Jr's bike is a just a little overdone. Cool concept, but I think he went a little too far with the theme. It is a great looking bike though. Looks a lot more comfortable than other bikes he has built.
Sr's bike would look cool if he didnt do that stupid looking front end. It does look like it is a blast to ride though.
I kind of like James' bike. Probably what I would vote for. I dont like the look of the "crown" looking things on the sides, but it also looks like a bike that is super fun to ride.
GMG's bike looks more like something that was built in someones garage. It is not the caliber of a professional bike builder. It has some cool touches on it, but no way it should win a competition of this caliber. I would NOT ride that bike. Rigid, suicide shifter clutch probably sucks and the iron head shovel motors make the bike very top heavy.

Voting JJ even though it looks like the confederate x132. Junior is the same damn thing just a different flavor. Gas monkey made a cool bike but prolly not enough. Senior at least built a bike this time and i would prolly ride it but looks a bit gaudy.
Paul Sr must have gotten rid of Jason because the design is much better over all than in the past, just too many polished parts. Paul Jr's is pretty cool, old hot rod style, Jess James for me is ok and could have been better, Gas Monkey bike looks pretty cool.
