Paul jr and fast and loud are my picks,Jesse said him self he tries to figure out how to make the same thing but make it harder to build,he is full of himself. As an everyday rider I would take the fast and loud bike. The trash talk I can do with out.

Did I mention I love my Volusia!

Jesse built a V-twin sportbike, Senior OCC built an all billet alluminum bike that looks like a Hellcat, and Gas Monkey flip-built a harley that looks like a bike of Cole Foster of Salinas Boys. They are all different. Of course Jr is goin to win because that's a highly modified Volusia he built!

i'm watching too, most of the truth has already been said, but here's my $.02

*Jesse James is a complete tool. He continually bites the hand that feeds him, and wants us to believe that he INVENTED motorcycles.... plus he is basically making a boss-haus ducati, over schedule, over engineered. plus i love his "i don't care about contests, i just continue to enter them" attitude. loser.

*Sr.'s bike looks ridiculous, it would be a good "industry" bike, to show off all the million dollar toys they have, and what they can do, but come on. Sr. and his crew are too far out there. not a cruiser, not a rocket, looks like some kinda sci-fi vespa!

*Jr. seems to be the most talented and well balanced builder. he can truley make amazing art, but his bikes are all form, no function. headers?!? cool, but stupid. imagine trying to park that float into ANY parking spot, you'd have to do a 10 point turnaround....no thanks.

*F-N-L, these guys are great! BEST pranksters among that group. And they seem like guys you could kick back and converse with...no ego, no roid-rage. i love there show, and i like the fact that they are doing things like 99% of folks would do. (no laser cut CNC machines lying around). BUT i am not crazy about their build. it seems that they are the most popular and could easily win this based on that alone, but a pink bike....it seems like they just want to be that guy a little too much.

I dunno, it don't look too bad to me...it's not like it's pink pink or hot pink...my mrs. really likes it.
..and it's definitely not a color you see every day on a motorcycle....kinda reminds me of the Metallic Burgundy Mist that Fender used on Jags and Jazzmasters in the sixties.

Tried hard to think of another color that ain't been done to death and wouldn't look like crap, there are a few but none would stand out enough to really get attention.

I agree with every comment that was a put down of JJ. If I didn't disqualify him for being such a complete self-centered jerk, I would have for failing to finish in time.

I liked the Gas Monkey bike and respected them for riding it to the show. But I didn't think it was all that creative.

OCC was creative functionally with so much being carved out of aluminum, but it didn't look that comfortable to actually ride.

Junior was the most interesting visually. I didn't know where he was going with the '39 grill, but he integrated it into the bike very successfully.

I just like cruisers. Sport bikes may function well, but I like to sit upright and ride comfortably.

I think I'd go with Junior 1st, OCC second, Gas Monkey third, and DQ for JJ.

Gas Monkey garage built a bike to ride and enjoy. Too me that is the winner over something that is gonna sit in the corner like the other bikes are.
