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 ...

Just shows J.J can out blip anyone when talking on air. The show the whole idea was crap. Just trying to get J,J back into a game that no one plays anymore. Rebuild his image that he has lost on his own.

It really is a shame that Jesse's roadworthy bike came in second to a bike that probably could not be ridden more than 50 miles at a clip. I thought it was a "bike build off" like the old biker build off shows where the masters could ride the machines coast to coast. Jesse, the winner of tonight's Discovery Channel farce is not the world's best bike builder - just the designer of the most innovative theme bikes. No way I'd want to ride a solid metal seat and you could not pull up to any real biker bar with Jr's.....let's get back to building real American bikes that can be ridden coast to coast like the likes of Indian Larry!

Jesse's bike was not the best looking bike I've ever seen, but his skill is way beyond those other 2. Plus he's entertaining. Jr is a wannabee designer. And definitely not a bike builder or rider. He's a joke. his bike was a joke. People that like that bike best have no idea what a good bike is. They are like magpies attracted to shiney objects. The REAL builders that deserve to have their own show won't ever make it on because they don't have enough drama in their lives to entertain the masses for tv.

Looks like Jesse's publicist told him to 'get out there and stir some crap up' to get in the news again. Jeepers, how exciting (yawn).

Jesse Sez: Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. This guy might be a talented fabricator, but he sure needs to grow up. He sounds like a ten year old street brat. Hey Jesse, you lost, dumb ass......................

Jesse thinks Senior is cool? They're both megalomaniacal losers. Junior is only half as much of an ass as his father. Cool?? Vinnie DiMartino, the only "real" bike builder and decent human being in the bunch, might fit that description, but not the Paul's and certainly not J.J. They are legends in their own feeble and narcissistic minds.

Jesse James is the best bike builder and would bust up Jr in about 20 seconds if they got in a fight. Any moron who thinks otherwise is an idiot. Jesse is a street guy Jr is daddy's boy that had all his crap handed to him. I like Jesse and will continue to support the guy. Hell I would of cheated on his x wife for that hot ass chick he was doing !.. Besides its no ones business what you do in your private life the media today needs to drive off a cliff.

Sounds like TMZ is doing free promotion for a show that is at end of life and out of ideas.

Or maybe it is not free advertising for Discovery Channel and is really news? Ha Ha.
