Each episode features two custom bike builders who have a week to build a motorcycle from the ground up. The builders are given a budget of $15,000 to purchase parts and materials for their bike, which they must complete within the allotted time frame. In addition to building the bike, the builders must also test ride their creations to see how they handle on the road.
