Episode Summary

EDIT

TV Rating: PG13 / L

Senior and his OCC crew finishes working on the Arabian Horse chopper for a private individual, who is willing to let Senior share the chopper build. The unveil occurs at a private horse farm in Texas. Senior starts a second bike build, this one is for Grainger Industrial Supply.

Junior unveils the most prestigious chopper of his entire career (OCC & PJD), as he presents one of the most unique choppers ever built in this history of mankind at the New World Trade Center in NYC at Ground Zero. The Mayor of NYC introduces Junior and the bike, while Joe Daniels and Dan Tishman comment on the bike.

A Discovery Channel family member takes matters into his own hands to help the Teutuls get back to making bikes for "real people" and away from theme bikes. Jesse James contacts Father and Son by sending both of them vulgar cakes. He throws down the gauntlet and challenges them to a three-way chopper build-off on live TV in early December (Monday, December 5 and Tuesday, December 6, 2011) in Las Vegas, NV.

  • A really exciting, well rounded, and fun episode. The only downside was not enough bike building.

    This episode really was fun, especially with seeing Junior and Senior both reacting in similar ways to the cake sent by Jesse James. I really don't know much about this third person in the up-coming live build-off, but his choice of cake has me agreeing with the Teutuls for once. Who is he and why does he feel sending a male member to them and their place of business is appropriate. Also why send to Junior a cake saying anything about OCC?

    After going back several time and listening to his reasoning to the viewers / camera, I'm still not sure who the cake and his note gets his points across to the Teutul Father and Son team. He certainly isn't making his point at all clear through his actions.

    Senior and Junior are actually doing well separately, though, one can image the hurt they are suppressing. I was hoping Jesse James bike build off would bring these three men (Senior, Junior, and Mikey) together, but now have serious doubts any good coming from the build-off - at least in helping the Teutul family. Maybe it wasn't ever in the cards to help out the family and was wishful thinking on my part.

    On the bike building front, this was a fun episode with the highlighting of three choppers. Senior and his crew have fun unveiling the horse bike and starting a chopper for an industrial supply company.

    Junior's chopper, though, is one of the best bikes ever made or will ever be made by either OCC or PJD. It is an stunning chopper in its quality, as both a chopper and a piece of art work. It is as much a memorial to 9/11 and those who died, as it is to those men and women who build skyscrapers around the world. Junior really proved he is a chopper design genius!

    This chopper really should be in a museum or at the 9/11 Memorial site and not in a private collection. Yet, a raffle will tell the tale, as to who will own it. For $50 you too can have a chance to own this one of a kind piece of art. After all a raffle really is the fair way to find it a home, otherwise it would only end up in the hands of one of the "one percenters."moreless
