Jesse James

Beef with 'American Chopper' --

I Think They Wanna Fight Me

12/6/2011 4:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James is in a bike building war with the guys from "American Chopper" -- and it's getting so intense that Jesse claims things could get violent between him and Paul Teutul Jr.

The gear-heads are all at the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas for a Discovery Channel event called "American Chopper Live: The Build Off" -- airing live tonight at 9pm ET.

James was setting up his big red machine today when we asked about the rivalry -- and he told us, "The senior is cool but the kid's like wound up tighter than a watch ... I think he's gonna want to fight me."

So, we gotta ask ...

This is a bogus build-off. Sr knows he doesn't have a chance so he decides not to compete by building a non-chopper, motorcycle only because it has less than 4 wheels. That way he can say the build-off is a popularity contest and no one likes him. Of course they don't. He runs down his kids publicly and then says it's Jr's fault no one will talk to him. Jesse is the craftsman. Too bad he is so insufferably arrogant. While the bike is beautiful work it's too old school for my taste. Jr's bike is what he always builds, a theme bike. The Teutul glommed on to the corporate theme bikes niche and were successful mostly because they promote it with television. This is nothing more than a TV promo that could rival the WWF.

Geezus Jesse, STFU and build your bike! How insecure are you man? All yer BS "I'm so tough and bad" ACT is so obviously based in little wounded child insecurity. If you have to ACT tough and bad as much as you do . . . yer NOT! Putting the other builders down to TRY to make yourself look good is pitiful. Grow up already . . . and STFU! You knew you were going to lose so you tried yer best to TALK yer way into getting respect and automatically have built in excuses.

Jesse James is such a prick, luckily Sandra Bullock figured out he was a joke and bailed. He is`a disgrace to the biker industry.

I used to like JJ until i heard him speak.(on the "Apprentice") Honestly it was kinda strange to hear this voice come out of his mouth, sounds like he has never mentally developed. I feel bad for that man-child.

Jesse's bike looks like a reject from the 90s. Not in a good way. I ride a bobber, so I like raw looking bikes . . but his is just dated looking in a bad way. The bike Jr built is a work of art (no one rides these things / it was a competition). The snow mobile Sr's team built is ridiculous. Rick looked like he couldn't believe he had to be a part of something so stupid.

Ok I got to the part of the video where he says "I think I built the only bike you can ride" Um, I watched the show last night, Jesse James couldn't see over his handlebars and kept on having to look under his right handlebar to see. That's not comfortable riding to me, and in many states that's illegal. I was watching a show about Sturgis, the place that has the biggest bike fest every year, you'd be ticked for riding Jesse James bike their. Paul Jr. wins. Jesse James with the generic bike he's been building for years, and Paul SR. "bike" is a joke.
