I caught the last 2 episodes and set it up for a series recording on my DVR. I agree they spend too much time on interviews and such and not enough on talking about the bikes. But, with the lack of anything motorcycle related on TV here, it gives me a little something to watch.

I agree that the KTM makeover was terrible. Such a cool bike and the makeover didn't do it for me at all. But hey, at least he conned his wife into working on bikes with him!

In a "he didn't just do that did he?" kind of way.

He sets the hook later in the series, the guy is a carb tuning guru...

Great show, like anything, some segments are better than others.
But overall great show!

Ichiban moto

Ya' got to be kidding me.

This guy takes a Yamaha XS500 (NOT a 1977 model, no matter what he says- my first bike was an 1977 XS500D) that was butchered and makes it look like even worse shit.

Episode 2- taillight bracket will last about 5 miles until a few bumps in the road (thankfully!) break that cheesy aluminum and the POC taillight heads for the weeds.

Zip tie the plate on? WTF. And good tip on using colored ties- much stronger Oh yeah- good thing he put tape over the plate numbers so one of us can't find the bike and steal it.


But wait a minute....I have to check ebay and scoop up all the excellent items he removed and is selling. Maybe I can buy some and turn my ride into a bigger piece of shit than what he could.

I couldn't comprehend the KTM hack job, too bad they didn't say what went wrong with the brakes. Katee's bike, and she merself, are very cool. The Guzzi build was very nice, didn't quite understand putting a Ninja 500 motor in an old CB frame

Somewhere he has a Craigslist ad for that POS...for the discerning buyer, to be built & painted to their specs.

Think he was asking $7k...plus any additional "custom" work.

I didn't like the first episode I saw (the one with the KTM made into a steam punk bike) much at all.

I'm glad I stuck around for the second episode my DVR taped. An old Harley Aermacchi rebuilt and a Ninja 500 motor into a CB550 frame. Both were really cool bikes that turned out very well IMHO.

Let's see what the third episode holds . . .

Try your public access TV for "Team Chicago Challenge" and/or "Motorsports Unlimited". Both can be found on youtube, iirc. TCC las a link to old programs on its web site. Granted, not the world's best TV. But it is local to the WI./IL/MI bottom of the lake area. TCC runs a RR track school and Groups 4&5 are for street bikes if you have never done that?

Decent show, some interesting builds and some that leave you scratching your head.

Ya gotta love a show where a Hollywood Hottie kick starts her custom Cafe!!!

I though she was OK, until I found out she could kickstart that 600. Now she is smokin'. I would love to own that bike.

Yeah, watching her kickstart the bike, I kept hoping her shirt would fall open just a little bit more . . . I know I'm not the only one.

I think it was a season or two ago where a beautiful old CB750 was destroyed in front of the original owner who put many miles on it. That episode annoyed me as the bike came out like crap.
Other than that, I really like the show.
