American Chopper is set to announce a live four-way bike build-off special.

Paul Teutul Senior and Junior will face-off against Outlaw Garage star Jesse James and Discovery Channel’s Fast ‘N Loud stars Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman in a competition event.

Rawlings recently made some thinly veiled taunts against James, though trash talk is very much part of the biker building culture. The contest will air live from Las Vegas across two nights, Dec. 10 and 11 at 9 p.m.

The event will mark the long-running show’s second live competition special. Last December, Teutul Jr. won a the first build-off, which delivered strong ratings for the network (4.8 million viewers).
