The Austin Speed Shop was a family owned business for over 45 years. When the owner died (several years ago), I think Jesse either bought the place. It’s a very modest shop that does beautiful car restorations. Not fancy, no street frontage, very low key.
Jesse James is famous, not because of his broken relationship with Sandra Bullock, but for his skills as a coach builder and custom rod designer. Bobby Epstein, chairman of Circuit of the Americas, commissioned Austin Speed Shop to build a 2 seat “ride along” car for the grand opening of the Formula 1 track.
The master fabricator is back! Jesse has closed West Coast Choppers and sold everything to do with it. Jesse, tired of California and no longer happy living there, has moved himself and his family to Austin Texas and bought into Austin Speed Shop. This series is all about fabricating awesome hot rods. Production is not about quantity but all about quality. Jesse also has a shop at home where he fabricates items that are not capable of being fabricated at the main shop. Jesse also teaches and challenges the crew at Austin Speed Shop. Enjoy watching one of the greatest fabricators and imaginations on the planet! Written by
