PJD Hands down... I am sorry Jesse James is a cool Mo-Fo and has built some bad ass bikes. But PJD really brought it to the table, it has nothing to do with "sucking the soul out of bike building."
There are VERY few bike builders that could build what PJD did for the build off. I would say less than 10 in the world. I don't mean just the fabrication, I mean that have the "eye" for a truly one-off motorcycle.
I am really disappointed in J&P cycles for the way they are bashing PJD, definately hurts my perspective of their company.
I liked Jessie James bike and if i was going to pay someone it would be him. JPD built a beautiful metal sculpture to stare at and Sr should of been disqualified for that POS he built. So i don't think the show really qualified as a biker build off
