Only seen him on tv, but....sometimes he seems pretty cool, other times he looks like a real weenie. Anybody had any real experiences with him? :skep:

I've never met him, but he seems cool enough.

I can't stand the Orange County guys, though, and by most things I've heard, they're complete azzholes.

Drove by his shop this a.m. while out on the road..... wasn't real impressed (looks a lot nicer on tv) and it's in a real dumpy part of town. :puke:

I've only seen parts of the show a few times. He seemed like a jerk, but I can't say that's accurate since I've never seen a whole episode.

I think he’s just an individual in his own right... It might be cool to party with the guy... but you can never tell from just seeing him on TV. However, Those OCC Cats I can't even stand to watch that Soaps for Men Show... I just waiting to see some Chicks on the show and they can move it to day time... :rant:

And neither of their bikes are all that cool looking....anymore :spam:

Gimme OCC anyday over Jesse James

Everybody can be called a sellout these days..hey, u can't blame them for going where the money is!! wouldnt you? as long as their quality of bikes doesn't suffer, what can you say? OCC's bikes have gotten bigger & better since they came onto the scene.

JJ is alright! I don't mind watching his stuff every now and then. I would take OCC over them. They do some really good work in my opinion! :pat:

JJ seems like fame & fortune have gone to his head..... maybe different in person. He would definitely be an interesting dude to meet.

I like OCC, but sometimes they're bikes look like they are just bolting accessories onto them.

Jesse James builds bikes from the ground up, OCC doesn't.
what do you mean they dont build them from the ground up.. OCC makes the frames, from the oc ironworks shop right next door..the fabricate the tank, bars, fenders, everything, they do all the wiring, assemble it from sratch. :here:

i havent but my football coach has seen him (he was a cop at a convention or something?) but i guess jesse has some cars he is building nobody has seen and he let my coach take a peek under the hood and everything they talked for a little while coach said he was tight (he is who got me into bikes evenb though i dont like that style anymore jesse is a badass !!!!!!!!) my auto teacher met him too and he said that he is a dick on T.V to look cool but in person he is just an average joe

plus he does a lot of stuff for kids and stuff so i think he is a cool guy living his dream

Eh, I'm really not into JJ or OCC! I watched a few of the OCC ones. And the one that caught my attention, was when they made the POW/MIA bike! I LOVED that. And to be honest that was the last show of OCC I watched.

Indian Larry was doing a stunt on his bike, standing on the seat, went into a low speed wobble, cracked his noggin (no helmet) and kicked the bucket, or so I read in a bike magazine. :cry:

Every show I've watched they buy the frames, handle bars, etc. . I've seen them fabricate almost nothing.

Personally, I don't watch any of the shows anymore.

There's a bike shop in Scottsdale called Hacienda, they just sell custom bikes. But there are some sick bikes in there. . a lot of Paul Yaffes, but I've heard mixed things about him. However, last time I was there they had one called a Spider that came from Germany. I've never been able to find anything else about it, but it was around $60k I think, all black. I like going into the shops and checking out bikes, but the whole chopper guy attitude is just worn out, so I don't watch any of those shows anymore really. Just a lot of Reno 911. :lol:
