I was watching a Biker Buildoff episode on Discovery this week, it's usually on at lunch. I'm guessing this might be a repeat and old news so I'll just say it now that it might be old news. LOL This James Compton guy was building only his second bike but the one he did for the show and the one he did before was pretty sweet bikes. He does these custom rigid frames, sort of like a low sportbike frame but rigid, and runs a 1000cc Suzuki motor in it. The bikes sound awesome and look really cool.

EDIT: It is at least a year old because this article is from 2009.

The build off was from '07. His website hasn't been updated since then, just showing the 2 Crusher bikes that were featured on BBO.

I wonder if that was all that he did was the two? He had a really nice set up in the garage but I'm wondering if most of that came from his race team just to use for the show. I know a couple of those garage builders rented or were loaned shops to use for the tv show.
