Episode 39: David Mann Bike 1
A trip down memory lane while at Sturgis inspires Senior to build a tribute to biker legend and artist (and one of Senior's personal heroes) David Mann. But throughout the build Senior struggles with problems from Paulie showing up late to work to never-ending fights with Mike. Then, after a trip to the dentist leaves Mike in an anesthetized stupor, Senior and Rick are left to work on the handlebars without his input. Will his empty spot slow up the build or will Senior and Rick survive on their own?

Despite the Discovery Channel's emphasis on the same old feuding and fighting angle, this show really concentrated on Paul Sr and Rick's work on a real traditional style chopper, ala David Mann's Easyrider paintings from 25-30 years ago. This is not really Paul Jr's style anyway, and Sr and Rick are best left alone on this bike as far as I'm concerned.

I would like to have seen them use a more traditional engine, (does anybody make a flathead replica kit?) but...

SB (still has some old Easyriders stashed away somewhere)
