Waht do I have to do to get a new...

episode of american chopper around here? Damn its been a long time. I wanna see those too argue about shit.

Last night I was catching up on my Tivo's episodes of the great biker build off. so what happens after the 3rd episode? is it done or are they doing another round? By the way talk about bullshit. every bike that lost was a much better bike. they just vote for the scum bags. Yaffe's was kick ass, bourgets was incredible, and I liked the other guys too, that dude from boston, cant remember his name.

Man I want a custom chopper so bad... I would buy that one bourget built in a minute.

biker build off 4 is Billy Lane against Indian Larry. I didnt like indian larry's design whereas billy lane's bike looked sweet and very very scary with the "meat grinder" open chain drive. Keep an eye out for the 4th episode. very very cool example of "good sportsmanship" demonstrated by Indian Larry in that episode.

looks like the First "season" of american chopper is over. went to discoverychannel.com site top look at prices for the "fire Bike" dvd ($44.95 for a 3 part series not to bad) and they list the first season.

looks like we have to wait a few months for season 2

I missed the one where lanes seat caught on fire.. anyone got that on tape or on an ftp server?

I think that some of what was making people vote for indian larrys bikes was that he got the crowd going doing the 5 gear burnouts.

I agree that I liked the bikes that lost better then the ones that won.... Yaffee makes some sweet bikes.
The prodogy one is my favorite.
They showed some of the building on one of the discovery channel features.
When you look at the paint on the closeups its just unbelieveable. click on the thumbs at the bottom

did you see where they showed the bottom of billy lanes pants leg and it was all chewed up..... the episode before his seat caught on fire.... I've always wondered about how strong some of the parts on some of these customs are after they have been ground smooth at all the welds etc.

Ya please post those if you can find them.



I got to give Lane some credit. I really did like the fender he made that was also the exhaust. It was very trick, probably didnt do much for horsepower since it wasnt a stepped design but damn it was cool. Other wise the way he builds his bikes just look cheezy. I like the precision of the big guys much better.

Yeah it was pretty "cool" so to speak, but how on earth did he not know how hot it was going to get?

When he ended up dunking the seat in the lake I thought "Yep!".

Indian Larry and Billy Lane are "old school". Roger builds bikes that are more "cookie cutter". He has his own frame and tanks premade. Just my .02... I think Indian Larry and Billy Lane's creations are more original. Plus I think its too cool to see how Billy cuts up an old Sportster tank and makes a work of art out of it...too cool.

Not to say I dont like the other bikes in the build off, I just think that Larry and Billy show a bit more creativity and " fly be the seat of your pants" ingenuity.

Oh I agree with you 100% on the fact that they are more original. Heck they are pieced together from all sorts of stuff. Personally I just like the new sleeker styles and precision building techniques on the new school bikes. the other two guys remind me of someone who builds art out of old cars
