One of a Kind Exile TV Bike Russell Mitchell
2003 One of a Kind Exile TV Bike Russell Mitchell
With quotes such as:
- "We want to expose the American people to clean,
tough, European styling, whether they like it or
- "America is a nation full of tasteless custom
motorcycles, built by serious fashion criminals."
Russell Mitchell has become the outspoken voice of
custom motorcycles. His appearances on TV as well
as his two wheeled creations are now legendary. Exile
bikes are typically bare-bones streetfighter looking
things--sporting flat black, powdercoat or wrinkle
finishes and brushed aluminum--instead of high-gloss
lacquer and chrome and that is the way that Russell
Mitchell wants it.
Starting in Feb. 2005, this British rebel will be
staring in a new motorcycle reality series on Fox
.. to air on SpeedTV called, B.O.B. or Build Or Bust.

The premise of the show is as follows:
a regular guy has 30 days to design and build a custom
bike from start to finish - if he does it, it's his!
If the bike is not sick enough (as judged by Russell),
it is modified and completed by Russell and then made
available for sale right here.
I was contacted by the director, Scott Gillen and
was asked to list the bike for sale. The bike is owned
by the production company and is titled as a 2003
Exile Cycle. The bike was built by the guys at Exile
and not at home in a garage.
In This Episode: the regular guy jumped at
the challenge to build his own custom bike but ended
up falling short of the mark. With two days remaining,
he left the set dejected. Russell Mitchell was called
upon to complete the bike to his standards and that
is where we are today. Please note that this episode
is scheduled to air sometime in February 2005. Check
your local listings for SpeedTV’s “Build or Bust”
set to air in February on Wednesday night at 8:00pm.
