Channel takes us right into the heart of custom chopper builder Jesse James.

high end pristine machines that are simply amazing to look at, and even more
amazing to see the creation of. To call them just a motorbike would be
insulting. Each machine is an individual work of art reflecting the artistic
vision of both the customer and also the crew who work with James to produce
these beautiful bikes.
We get to see
Jesse frantically getting some of his best bikes ever ready for Bike Week in
Daytona Florida USA. The degree of work that goes into his bikes is simply

are not cheap and you can see why. It really put into perspective what you
would consider to be a custom motorcycle and what some people might think is
customisation. They are two entirely different beasts. Jesse machines his own
wheel designs, trying to make each one unique. We get to see the process from

this doco interesting, even if you are not into motorbikes. There are
colourful characters who work on them and are very dedicated to their work.
It's great entertaining viewing. Recommended.
