BIKER BATTLEGROUND PHOENIX goes inside the cutthroat world of custom bike building, giving viewers a never-before-seen look at how adrenaline, craftsmanship and rivalries determine who’s who among the country’s top custom bike builders. Following five of the most talented and ambitious bad boys of the business: Paul Yaffe of Paul Yaffe Originals/Bagger Nation, John Shope of Dirty Bird Concepts, Len Edmonson of Azzkikr Customs, Kody McNew of VooDoo Bikeworks and Brian Jenkins of Hatred Customs, viewers will witness how the competitive rivalries between these shops are sometimes fueled by respect and sometimes not, proving that skills and hard work doesn’t always pay off and sometimes scheming wins the prize.
