Hosted by motorcycle aficionados, Brian Schaffran and Dani Pajak, Wrench Against the Machine will feature bike builder contestants who will be tasked with building everything from café racers to choppers, bobbers and beyond. Expert judges include master motorcycle designers Roland Sands, founder of custom motorcycle, motorcycle product and apparel company Roland Sands Designs; Alan Stulberg, co-founder and chief designer of Revival Cycles and Handbuilt Motorcycle Show; and Michael “Woolie” Woolaway, U.S. Director of Motorcycle Design for Deus Ex Machina. The judges will evaluate the bikes at the end of each build challenge and crown the winner who will walk away with the coveted “wrench” award.
“’Wrench Against The Machine’ is the toughest motorcycle build competition in the country,” said Matt Hanna, Executive Vice President of Original Programming for Esquire Network. “It’s a competition series that showcases the very best builders in the world and celebrates their craftsmanship, design skills, and ingenuity. What these teams can accomplish with these bikes is pretty badass. We’re thrilled to be in this world and think our guys are going to love it.”
Wrench Against the Machine is produced by Coolfire Studios with Jeff Keane, David Johnson, Steve Luebbert, Adam Vetri, Tim Breitbach and Aaron Bowden serving as executive producers.
