THE BUILD-OFF – from Discovery.com
Dec. 5, 2011 9pm
In this two-hour special, Senior, Junior and Jesse James compete in a no-holds-barred three-way build-off to determine whose bike reigns supreme. The winner — determined by viewers, in a vote immediately following the show — earns bragging rights as the best bike builder in the world.
How do you feel that this competition relates to the real-world of the current custom motorcycle scene? Is it too little, too late for these former iconic builders to bring relevant ideas to table? Or do you think it will be more of the over-the-top monstrosities that can only be treated like a real motorcycle from the trailer to the curb and back?
The stakes will be high as there will surely be the loyal fan-base and some curious riders tuning in. Surely with their TV reputations at stake, these guys will be digging deep. Will it be a hollow-victory for the winner, as the bike world has now grown appreciation for garage-built ride-able classics in bobber styles and racy euro cafe customs too?
You get to judge for yourself, help decide the winner and of course, leave your comments at their website. Chopper Live.

Will it be Senior, Junior or Jesse James who is crowned the winner of their ultimate three-way bike build-off? You voted. Now find out the results. Mike Catherwood hosts this live event from the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.
I think there are still a lot of fans out there who loved seeing these guys bring their Choppers to mainstream America. Even though trends have evolved, some would say that the world is a more motorcycle friendly place, since the WCC iron-crosses and OCC tee shirts showed up.
