I have to say I thought that Jr. pulled it off, and I'm not much on the sport bikes, but F&L simply tweeked and rebuilt and older Harley, I don't think there bike was actually a build compared to a restoration.

Is the drama between JJ and F&L just laying the ground off for some kinda scripted Texas build off ?

Hot Rods maybe ?
that'd be sweet!

I thought Jr's was a nice bike, but personally i did like F&L's better even though it wasn't an actual "build" from the ground up. IMO Sr's was fugly, and JJ didn't bring much to the table either. I think there was too much scripting going on with the drama, even F&L mentioned something about it just being "bleep-bleep-bleep network drama".

Someone should define build.
F&L cut the frame apart and rebuilt it as a hard tail. made and modified parts.
Jr just grabbed a frame off the rack. and modified of the rack parts.
Sr's the only one that actually built the bike from the ground up, bout the only off the rack parts I saw were the motor, trans and wheels. (still but ugly, would look good with a different fork though.)
And JJ just built a Buell with sheet metal instead of plastic.

Would like to see them do it without resorting to just modifying off the rack, out of a catalog or salvage yard parts.

It was interesting but it lacked a headlight to be legal. It showed that combing ingenuity along million dollar equipment, big slabs of aluminum, and some know how you can build an unaffordable bike that isn't a daily rider nor even meets the basic premise of a chopper.

Two choppers were built, the 2 sportsbikes don't qualify imo. And only one proved it could be ridden any distance. Therefore I think that qualifies Gas Monkey as the winner in my book.
