While watching last night's episode, I started fear regardless who wins the three-way build-off the losers will call it a popularity contest and not a real judging of the bike building skills.
Personally, I think the contest should have both a team of say 7 judges and viewers looking at each team building say three bikes. Each team would create a bike for three different categories - Street legal chopper, Most Outrageous chopper, and best Corporate Chopper would be my suggestions. The judging would be in multiple areas, such as originality, practicality, endurance (e.g. riding the chopper say 1,000 miles, closest to the objectives of the category, etc.
The awards would be for each category and then an over all winning bike.
So, what in your opinion would be best and truest method to find the best chopper builder?
