Funniest quote so far, "Jesse is talented but he's an A hole."

Tidcab and BadaBing, I completely agree with both of you.

Personally I couldn't be paid to vote for Jesse James's bike due to the fact of two things. First, due to his ego and mentality, he seems to be 'special' and was given an extended time for building his bike so that the show didn't risk being in jeopardy. Second, saying he's an A hole is being polite. I do agree he is talented and skilled, but I would not feel sorry in the least for him if he were kicked when he's already down.

I have no idea who may or may not win, however my selection in order would be:

Fast 'n Loud
Paul Jr. Designs
Orange County Choppers
Jessie James

For all Jesse's yammering about how he makes everything for his bikes, why is it they always have a ****load of off the rack parts, and why is it you see the guys from his shop doing all the work?
I've never once seen him make his own engine, his tanks are almost always modified off the rack, same for frames and fenders. For all his BS he isn't doing anything different from the other builders (well except senior, but god is that f***in thing ugly).

The fast and loud crew got's a nice ride, classic sweet, prolly won't win.
Jr's ride is sweet to look at but i wouldn't want to rack up serious miles on it...I don't think my back or backside could take a 300 mile day on it. Prolly will win.
Sr's bike ugly as sin will finish dead last, Jesse third, F&L's second, and Jr's in first...of the four I'd most like to see F&L's bike in my driveway.

Jesse does make all his own parts.

He even made the cardboard box his engine came in.

I like the fact that Fast and Loud rode their bike to Vegas and finished ON TIME.

I was really liking Sr's bike until they put that girder front end on it, hideous.

Jr's bike is, again, alittle too "theme" oriented for my taste, but of the bunch it is the best of the lot.
