Dude, Jesse James Took Me For a Ride!

7/16/2008 9:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A guy from Omaha claims Jesse James just doesn't deliver.
Read the docs
According to a lawsuit filed today in L.A. Superior Court, in 2005 Michael Jones commissioned James' West Coast Choppers to build him a 1949 Cadillac Sedanette for somewhere between $250,000 and $350,000. But, according to Jones, after shelling out $270,000 in payment over two years, the car wasn't completed and James told him the car would now cost between $600-700k!

Jones is suing for breach of contract and fraud and asking for the $422,680 he eventually sunk into the car as well as interest, damages and court costs.

BTW -- Jones still doesn't have the car. A rep for James could not be reached for comment.

CELEBS HAS NO COMMON SENSE OR DO THEY PAY IN FULL CASH    


As long as this story is told correctly.

Did they sign a contract?????? if so , then it stands the
way its said on it .

You ever noticed , Celebs are taking advantage at
the public and not paying there debt or doing what
they're suppose to do ????

And many hollywood ( wannbes ) want you to think
they're popular , when actually they aren't.

Michael B Jones better have a darn good lawyer AND
have his contract which him and jesse agreed on , as
his Proof .

That's why you should ALWAYS have copies .


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This reminds me of Oprah , not paying her debt .
She owns a man and she's not paying it .

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Celebs are lossing there homes , because they aren't paying
there debt . COMMON SENSE , WOULD tell us , if you've
millions of dollars , wouldn't you PAY OFF your home , cars
and debt ???? They're spending money on other things
than paying on debt .

I know if i had millions , my house , car, etccc would ALL
be paid off in full . Property tax and insurance ,
maintence ont house would be expensive ( that's IF ITS
a mansion ) but I WOULD NEVER buy a manison because
most of it is a waste of space and who's going to clean it up ??
Mexicans are the ones who celebs hire , I seen that in BelAir
when I visit the place .

You're better off doing the work yourself and saving the money
put it in your own pocket .

Celebs are wasteful . Many of them have no Idea how to save
money.........Budget 101

They are both guilty Jesse James for trying to rip Michael B. Jones off and Michael for willing to pay $250K for a car you can get on Ebay right now for $45K. I guess its true what that say about a fool and his money....

I've heard that Jessie is a real a-hole and that he started his business with the money he had made selling drugs when he was younger.

jesse has been doing this for years, it just hasn't been publicized, such as this case.jesse is a master manipulator and a TRUE fabrication of stories! for all you lame 'jesse fans', that's pure stupidity on your part. just because he owns a cool bike shop and married a naive celebrity wife that he controls, doesn't automatically make him good! he has railroaded and hurt MANY to get to where he is, stepping all over former friends, and family members in the process. you can't treat people in this controlling and disgusting way and keep getting away with it. everything you read in the 'media' is NOT true. believe me i know first hand in jesse's case! first hand. i agree with 'local reporter' above, it truly does give new meaning to the lame-axx 'pay up sucker' , (not sucka), tattoo he has. why doesn't somebody go ask jesse's family members, i.e., his dad, sister, cousins, aunts, uncles, former friends, former employees, one of his ex-wives, how he really is and how true this lawsuit really could be against jesse that michael jones has! they will tell you that this is EXACTLY how jesse is! michael jones and his lawsuit describes jesse to a T, just as his family, former friends, and former employees, know him! its so amazing that michael jones does not know ONE of jesse's former friends or relatives, yet describes jesse and his character exactly as they know him to be! doesn't this have some merritt for michael jones?! i surely believe it does...best to you michael!

Out of the 6 Jessy James bikes I've seen...I had to fix 4....One had melted wiring from welding after the wires were ran.
two were welds that cracked on the motor mounts. One was a motor re build from a lean mixture (wrong jets) from his shop.
The bikes looked alright but the price he gets for them He should put out a better product.
