The much awaited build off is finally here! OCC vs PJD vs Jesse James! Whose the best custom bike builder? Well, it's up to us the viewer and motorcycle enthusiasts to decide! So what are you waiting for? VOTE NOW or forever hold your peace! --- http://dsc.discovery.com/tv/american-chopper/chopper-live/final-poll.html#mkcpgn=fbtlc2&fbpostid=fbtlc2-
Now here's my two cents worth:
Who am I going to vote for and in what order? Since there's no criteria for judging---I'm making my own.
Theme - This is suppose to be a custom chopper build off so I'm disqualifying OCC who seemed to have lost their way here. Is that a snow mobile they built?! I guess Senior was too busy talking trash about his son that he didn't hear CHOPPER build off. PJD and Jesse James got this right on the button. Jesse James was also talking trash but at least he was listening as to what needs to be done.
Creativity and Design - This is the WOW effect. Being from the Philippines, choppers are not an everyday sight. So in the 3 times in my life that I've seen one cruising by definitely got my head turning 360 degrees! But in so far that I have been watching American Chopper and looking at motorcycle magazines I can say that I've gotten myself an eye for what an exceptional bike is when it comes to design.
After much shit talking from Jesse, you'd expect him to really step up on the plate and hit a home run---NOT! It turned out that Jesse was all talk and not much imagination! This one goes to PJD hands down!
However, I must give credit to Jesse in terms of his bike building skills. He made his bike all by hand that showed his blacksmith-ing skills. Unfortunately, the build off is meant to judge the output and not the bike building process.
Obviously, my choice is PJD over Jesse James! So, whose your pick?
