DESCRIPTION: (from History's press release, May 2014) History is going 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, in the new series BIKER BATTLEGROUND PHOENIX premiering Tuesday, July 1 at 10 PM ET/PT. Following five of the most talented and ambitious bad boys of the custom bike business in Phoenix, Arizona, viewers will witness how the competitive rivalry 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. In the desert city of Phoenix, Arizona lives a subculture unknown to many - the custom bike building capital of the world. A place where shop owners compete day and night for customers who are willing to pay upwards of $150,000 for a fully personalized Bagger motorcycle. Choppers and Cruisers are out and Baggers are in. In this dog-eat-dog world, design ideas are money and top custom bike shops compete around the clock, for both business and bragging rights. BIKER BATTLEGROUND PHOENIX follows five of the most determined and hungry shop owners, from the well-established 'Godfather' to the young up-and-comers. When passion and egos collide in this world, the explosion is heard throughout the city.
