Fast n loud. Grease monkey garage. 2 guys with a lot to prove. Playing with the big boys building choppers. And they seem to be doing a hell of a job showing them how it is done. Discovery has decided this year to add a new player to the biker build off. The guys from grease monkey garage from the discovery show Fast n Loud. Grease monkey garage is located in the great state of texas. It is a custom car restoration shop and anything else the guys want to rebuild or reuse or bring back to life. It is a new show on discovery and I think the discovery channel was just wanting to market the show to expand its audience. Of course that doesnt mean these guys dont know what they are doing. They both have solid skills and more than enough guts to stand up to the big boys at OCC and PJD. Especially to Jesse James.
The guys at fast n loud built a classic custom motorcycle. Easily the most drivable motorcycle in the contest. They bike has a 60’s shovel head motor. And stays true to the period. Looking like most any custom from the late 60’s. Definitely a bike that is easy to jump on and ride home. Fast n loud loved brag about the rarity of the engine and the classic styling. Probably not the best plan if you want to win a biker build off. Most people have no idea what the difference between a pan head or a iron head or a shovel. They just have to decide if it looks cool or not. Not that this bike isn’t cool. It is a sweet ride from the past. but it takes more than that to win a biker buildoff.
Being that this is gas monkey garages first time in the big leagues. They made a solid custom motorcycle that would win in almost any competition it was competing in. But this is any competition. This is prime time baby. Money is no object. if you can dream it discovery channel will pay to build it. I really feel fast n loud has the chops to go head to head with any of the other players. They just didn’t dream big enough this time. Look forward to seeing their dream next year for the 2013 biker build off!
