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 ...

If there is one thing Jessie needs it's a GOOD asswhoopin'. He's beyond a douche.

I think most of this comments are just ridiculous ! Jesse James is a phenominal bike builder so what if he slept with alot of women that doesn't take away from the fact that he makes great bikes. If you got a divorce does it make you bad at your job? Grow up people are to easily offended it was personal, get over it. I am a woman and i could care less if he banged a million broads i still think is is hands down the best bike builder! (just dont do it when you married jesse )

Setting aside Jesse James being a complete prick and making my decision purely on physical strength then I have to go with James, without a doubt. I'm not saying Jr. can't give a solid punch but James looks like he's kept in better shape and not to mention he was a bodyguard for many years. Anyway, is it even possible to vote for Jesse James? It looks like TMZ made the decision for us...

Hey TMZ, you should send your baby journalists out of the country to learn basic grammar, since it seems the American education process was ineffective. Bike and building are hyphenated words in this context, and gear head is not.

Who cares what Jesse James thinks, he is a moron. Paul Sr. is an abusive, angry ex-drunk. Can you imagine how bad he must have been when he was drinking? The only thing worse than a drunk is an ex-drunk.

What BS. These guys are just trying to build up a little PR for their "showdown." I agree with Bud. The show is over.

The fans will determine who the winner is tonight, and in that contest Jesse James will truly be a dead man. The only thing worse than Jesse's lame chopper is the abortion that OCC made in a feeble attempt to respond to the Gears of War 3 bike that Paul Jr. built; it's not a bike and not street legal, even without the flame-throwers. Go, Paul, Go!

Paul Jr would never lower himself to Jesse James level. Jesse on the other hand is desperately trying to stay relevant so why not talk smack about Jr plus Jr is gonna win!!!!!!!!!!!!! and Jesse gets 2nd place, now who's talking smack
