Each episode features Amanda and Shag scouring the Texas countryside for mechanical gems, including busted bikes and rusted roadsters.

Joe, an award-winning custom car and motorcycle builder, is the owner and operator of Martin Bros Customs.
In 2004, Joe showcased his motorcycle building expertise by winning the world championship on Discovery Channel’s ‘Biker Build-Off.’
At Martin Bros Customs, he and his crew customize everything from cars, boats and motorcycles to occasional vintage appliances.
At the shop, he oversees every aspect of each build from concept to completion adding his creative talents in the custom fabrication design.
Joe got into the motorcycle business in the mid-1990s and started working on bikes in the Dallas area.
After some time, he started building his own bikes, and as Jesse James became popular with his TV show, he was asked to be a part of 'Biker Build-Off.'
Born in Illinois, he has been living in Texas since he was ten years old.
He started drawing as a little kid, and after noticing him drawing on the walls, his mother provided him with a big sketch pad.
As he reached his mid-teens, his passion grew to mechanical things and started looking at Boyd Coddington’s stuff.
With his innate talents and years of practice, he has made a name for himself as a master fabricator.
