    Me. If you gave me a shop full of shit and unlimited funds, I'd spend it on drugs, booze, and tattoos.

    I know the guys who are going to be on there on the 19th. The Prism guys are from my town, young dudes, do nice work, and are genuinely as nice a guys as you'll ever meet.

    I'll give this show the benefit of the doubt. Discovery doesn't have the best track record when it comes to motorcycle related programming but maybe, just maybe, they didn't fuck this up. It will be pretty easy to tell in the first episode or two if this is just going to be more of the same old shit or not.

    Typical Discovery channel. Foocus on shit smashing, shit on fire, arguments...........I despise the Discovery channel.


    That said. I love the premise of the show, and they picked some decent builders. And according to IG theres a few shops from CC that will be on next month, I'll keep watching, and my kids like it.

    i agree. they focus on the bullshit like a guy fighting with a wheel. show me the fab, i dont wanna see that shit. it could be executed better but at least the bikes werent god aweful fat/tall tire shit.

    also it says they give each shop 15k to build the bike.

    just hope this shit doesn't blow up mainstream like the billet, fat tire and everyone and thier Gramma in a wcc shirt, R.U.B. cycles.

    'cause I can see vintage chop stuff gettin' real scarce, I'm never going to find the parts for my chop now

    Rubs- you forgot bitchs, I here money brings easy bitchs.

    Was nice to see a show like this where the dudes were actually building bikes and not just bolting them together. They really didn't show much fab or technical stuff which we all prefer, but anybody who knows anything can see that that panhead was some serious work. Looked like everybody built or modified everything.......just like real builders do. Hope the show sticks around.

    I would still watch some of the old ones today. Like that kinda of stuff, picking up little ideas here and there from them. Don't see a big difference between the build offs and ChopperTown, like both. OCC is for all the family to enjoy together, lame as hell but I have no problem with people pimping themselves for money to do what they like. Theres no difference between a big ass rear tire and a crusty old Bates seat (even a bare ass ridden one from anyone named Bates)

    I enjoyed it. That pan was sweet, a lot of thought went into the Harlot springer, I thought the rear end proportions were off on the 2nd place bike. That said the show had typical Discovery Channel formula for bike shows. Guess no one will watch if there isn't flames and someone acting like a douche. Shows how stupid it is when people can start voting for the favorite bike before anyone's taken the first piece of steel off the rack.

    Better than I had expected. Those guys from Georgia also seemed pretty affable. Too bad I didn't care too much for the build, heh. It does need more focus on fabrication, though, like most people here have said. There were a few cut-aways that took place just when the details started to come through.

    speaking the obvious here but.... it doesnt matter what it is, after it wears on us a little, its worn out, and we'll all hate on it. thats just how it is. that being said, i dont think anyone or anything can take away the cool factor of timeless vintage chops. it just wont happen, man.

    The more consumers of motorcycle parts the better the aftermarket gets, and it's never been better than now so enjoyand build what you like.

    Fads come and go, but more parts in the parts pool are a nice thing so shows which stimulate buyers are a Good Thing.

    Agreed. We, as motorcycle people, would prefer seeing more building taking place. But at least, Discovery understands that high-tech, expensive machines are out, and bring the power back to the little people, not the millionnaires.

    I enjoyed the Bike from Harlot. I thought it was well designed and executed. I wish they had showed more of the intricate work and refrained from building up baloney drama that no-one in their right mind believes in anymore...

    Anyway, we'll keep recording this one, fast-forwarding through Christo's dramatic intros, commercials, promos, trailers and half-tone summaries of the previous 5 minutes. In the end, you're lucky if you have a 20-minute program to watch...
