Senior had by far the most innovative, creative, and integrated design and build of any bike here.
Jesse definitely had a second place here even though it did have the look of a sport bike.
Fast and Loud guys had a yawn bike ..same old classic design.. Backyard design. No innovation..
Jr s had a disjointed ugly duckling of a bike that had to many discontinuity of design features. Not nearly as good as his previous Fighter Plane Design.
I think the problem with this build-off is that the only guys to build a real Chopper was the fast and loud guys and their entry was kinda lame.
But from a creativity, design, and build stand point Senior’s was by a fair margin the winner.
I would suggest better design criteria for build-off 3 for better vote statistics.
Junior won, and for good reason, he’s the best industrial designer, slash, bike designer. A suggestion for Jr, though; industry jargon may refer to your “fan base,” but they are your “fans,” not your fan base.
At least, this year, Senior built a bike. It was definitely a cool bike, and if it wasn’t for the fact he throws his kids under the bus if he thinks it will benefit him, he might have won.
I would love to own Fast and Loud’s bike. I finally figured out talking is what the name of their show refers to. Rich’s fast, and Aaron’s loud talking. Kidding aside, they’re funny guys, but their bike was outclassed.
If the producers of the show weren’t looking to exploit Jesse James bad-boy-can’t-follow-the-rules-wanna-be-gangster drama, they would have boxed up whatever Jesse had completed by the deadline, and that SHOULD have been his entry. Fortunately, the audience had more respect for the rules than the self serving rule makers. I have to tell you, though, this BS of bleeping them, you guys might as well be network TV. Oh, yeah, even they don’t bleep anymore. If you’re gonna bleep ‘em, don’t have them talk.
Oh, I thought this was a show about bikes. Did you even think of having someone ride and critique the bikes for performance, or handling? Nope. You guys were probably hoping Jesse would hit someone. What would that have done to the ratings?
