I thought

1) JR

2) Gas Monkey

3) SR

4) JJ, if everyone had 12 weeks what could they have done?


I hated the front end on SRs bike. Way to blocky and big. Other than that I thought he put together something really cool. While the Gas Monkey guys didn't hand make parts they put together a really cool bike. If I were in the market for a bike and those 4 were in front of me that's the one I would buy. As for a build off though JR's just got the eye for the flash. His creativity is off the charts and he has some good guys there to help build them. That bike was a little long and probably wouldn't be something you'd want to hop on and ride alot but it was a work of art for sure.

I just found it interesting that due to burst egos they don't release 3rd or 4th place as well as actual vote count.

I've always been a JJ fan and liked his bikes. After this show, his arrogance, ego, disrespect for the other competitors and refusal to stick to a time frame made me lose all respect for the turd. His bike, although very original, was goofy looking.

Sr's bike was definately original, but it was designed by that goofy jackl ass of a tool in his office, not SR. I agree it was blocky looking. Again, original, but not something I'd drive.

Jr's bike was more of the same though. Quality build by some good guys and fully designed in Jr's head. Now only if they could start making all of their own parts instead of just putting together pre-made stuff. I'm also tired of the theme bikes.

As simple as it was, Gas Monkey built the nicest looking bike and the most practical that you could actually ride. Other than the color, I'd take it. They also "built" it themselves, while these other guys did a lot of assembly. I like the fact that they actually road it to the show and completed it on time.

I would have voted:
Gas Monkey
JR
SR
JJ

Although the show sucked this week, it was nice to see Gas Monkey beat JJ with a pink bike as they said they would and it was a trip to watch JJ and SR egos hit the floor.

Oh yes-JJ should have been disqualified and the original time frame should have remained.

I've been camped outside Jr's shop since Tuesday night with a bouquet of yellow roses, a sharpie, and a pair of my under pants for him to sign.

At least they're yellow roses and not RED.
