Imagine how awesome it would be if Jesse's new show would be like this.

That Gold digger bike is awesome! I saw it up close when I went to WCC a few years ago. I think the stage has been set for bringing cycles back into the mainstream again. Maybe this time it will be riders instead of the show queens.

Im pretty sure that motor on the bench is from a local engine builder named Stroud who built it with Harmon back in the day.From the way I understand it they built two together and Jesse bought one not knowing it was a full race engine.The other one is for street.It would be nice if they brought this kinda show back.

Damn that guy is just so talented. He makes it look easy and inspired an entire generation to go out in the garage and learn something and build some shit. I hate how mainstream kooks talk all this shit because of his personal life adventures and try to act like they know anything about him or his work. Personally I'm glad Hollywood has moved on so that he can return to his roots and start building incredible bikes again and not just be on tabloids. I really wish he could bring WCC back or something like it, (yeah I know he owns Austin Speed Shop but it's not the same) he made the nicest damn parts in my opinion and his bikes were the only bikes I could look at and not want to change a single thing.

That was great! I love the way he made it his while still letting it live with its roots intact. He is so fucking talented, He knows when enough is enough and has a great deal of respect for design. He was honest with himself,on his opinions andthought it through. It could have gotten weird had he fucked with too much but thats why hes the best.Just look at that bike! If his new show is a tenth as good as this he will end up OWNING discovery channel!:clap for you:

Love H.O.T.C....great to see those guys get some exposure & chance to tell their side.
Those J.J tank building vids are gold Shovelzilla...thanks for sharing. You know where they originate from? Love or hate that guy there's no denying his love for motorcycles & craftmanship. It's infectious...I could watch & learn all day.
Hadn't heard about his Blacksmith show before....looking forward to that one. The Drake engine side of things should be cool.

Would be great to see J.J do a series on todays bike builders & crafstmen....would kill to see a good doco on Paul Cox at work.

HOTC is great and they have it on Netflix if youre interested. Jesse is one of those dudes that you may not always agree with or dig what he's doing at the time, but he has skill and talent for sure.

The Austin 33 guys and I saw Jesse on Saturday riding a nice looking red Indian. Don't know if it was an original 1930'-40's bike or one of those that Kiwi was building but it looked awesome.

I've run into him a couple of times since he lives in Austin now.
