We’ve often discussed the idea of a build off featuring something other than the standard choppers we’ve seen so much of and it seems it may be occuring. The Metric Revolution is a new TV series featuring the customization of a metric bike, all kinds of metric bikes, cruisers and sportbikes. The builders get a stock bike and 4 months to turn out their custom version. The extra time is a nice change, they might have an opportunity to actually think about what they’re doing. There will be choppers to be sure but it looks like we’ll see sportbikes, too. They have 25 builders involved, 10 custom bike builders, 10 custom sportbike builders and 5 rookies.
The show will be launched at Biketoberfest 2005 and the first episode of the 13 week series will be filmed there. No details yet of when or where the show will air.
