That one really is a piece of art. Probably about as controlable as a m-2 from the hip, but beautiful still the same. Just goes to showthat for all Sr.'s big talk, Jr. really did make OCC what it is (was). Even Rick is starting to point out that the OCC bikes just aren't the way they used to be.
I know I shouldn't watch the show, but I just can't help it, after all, that show is what got me interested in working on bikes when I was a teenager.
It wasn't too bad a show the first season when they showed more of the work on the bikes and a lot less drama. The hollering and yelling and all that crap finally put me off. I haven't seen the show since the first year. It seemed like they were more bike decorators rather than builders since they bought so much stuff ready made.
I've seen a few of their "tribute" bikes up close, and I sure would not ride most of the poorly built crap that they build. They look good on TV, but up close, you can see how poorly built they are. I was especially disapointed in the one for the Army,I would had been scared that it would fall apart going around the block. Like most, after the 1st year,I pretty much quit watching it.
+1 what Exavid said. It went from bike building/decorating to "The Dysfunctional Welding Show" in a hurry! There's was a drama-based business model. Bikes were simply the excuse and served to distract the viewer from the true product.
Hey walmart was full of OCC crap a few yrs ago They musta done something right.Its like wresling turn on one of the raw shows and you may see some actual wresrtling but i think not Can't watch OCC any more either. Loved the first years of monster garage Jessy James was a cool fab guy till it all went to crap to
