Snap-On Chopper

I usually don't get to see too much TV but saw American Chopper last night with the build-up of the Snap-On chopper- any thoughts by you guys? Although they have a lot of work done for them (I'm a pure Homebuilder-type guy!) I think they have unique innovative ideas and it is funny watching them argue and drill into new tires!!! Comments?

I missed the first 10 minutes, but it was the first one I saw where the old man didn't blow a gasket. I think they made up for that with the 2 hotties, Jr.s girlfriend and the new secretary. Both blonde and built. Poor ole Jr has to drive around in a Prowler. The tire popping looked a bit staged, screwing up an expensive tire for giggles made them look foolish. Dan

I love the metal fab part of the show. I just wish they would shut Big Paul up. I'm getting aggravated with the "I'm gettin' aggravated" parts. Makes you wonder how those bozos could turn out such nice pieces.
With all the arguing, they HAVE to be losing viewers. It gets old. Must be why they turned to the blondes. If they would only focus on the metal bending instead of lip bending.......

I'll reserve judgement until I see the completed bike. During the construction phase episode last night, it looked to me like there was going to be just to many add on googaws for my tastes. I did like the wrench risers, but didn't really care for the straight handlebars. A little bit of a bend at the ends would not have distracted from the appearance.
This will probably be strictly a show bike for SNAPON, so real rideability isn't critical. That thing is going to need a mountain motor and monster brakes to stop the mass of the frame alone!
Drilling holes in new tires isn't what you'd expect from professionals...

The screaming, yelling and throwing stuff is part of the show. Sometimes you can see them almost laughing at the stupidity of it themselves. Producers want drama.

yeah Drama

I'll go along with the drama thing, there isn't any way on Gods green earth that a father and son could argue that much, and still work together, WITHOUT JR telling the ole man to f$%k off , its all for show, I work with my son every day, we have disagreements and yell at each other, but this with Jr and Sr is too much, I guess sr's new saying is NUMB NUTS!! WOW!!!
and the blond bomb shell with JR, it is eather staged or she sees dollar signs, in everyday life she wouldn't give him a second look
As for the bike, I think it has some good design features, but you are right about the weight, did you notice them welding around the polished motor without any protection on it, maybe it was just a mock up motor, but pretty expensive mock up , personally I think JR has some help with his design work, and he takes the credit, I don't think any large co wanting a bike or car built at the price of these bikes without some input,
The drilling through the tire was about as stupid as the welding around the motor, just my 02

Agree with the drama part of the show, I think that's why American Hot Rod was only one episode. No drama in it and when Boyd tried to be an ********* it came of fake.

Good comments...I agree...I thought along the same lines with the producers calling some drama just to make the show more interesting...and the bike would be way heavy....and I couldn't believe the unprotected engine while welding...it makes me sick to see them have a frame company and the fact that they unpack so many items....Seems they just have the good ideas and ASSEMBLE great bikes....
But, for what the show is....I like it....
I was at my buddies house watching a little TV since I don't have one.
Too bad about cutting up that Vette on Monster garage too!
