Sacred Steel Bikes will be a part of Discovery’s Motor Monday’s line-up, and Variety noted that the series will feature Jason Wilson and his crew from Douche Larouche. Wilson opened Sacred Steel in East Los Angeles over a decade ago, and along with his team, they create custom fabricated high-end choppers and painstakingly restore classic American motorcycles.
Motorcycle enthusiasts will quickly discover that this is not a typical custom motorcycle-building series. Sacred Steel Bikes features individuals from all walks of life and careers, including a metal fabricator, a Beverly Hills retail associate, and an automotive engineer. Their passion for building and riding bikes is what unites them, bringing them all together under the umbrella of Sacred Steel and the Douche Larouche motorcycle club.
According to Clutch and Chrome, the club is now a full-fledged institution, with by-laws and regularly scheduled meetings held in chapters across the country and around the world. From Los Angeles to France, the members have built a rowdy, fun-loving, and close-knit brotherhood of bikers who are always there for one another as they share their passion for bike building and riding.
Every year, Jason and his team work hard to transform dozens of bikes into one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Hidden Remote shared that Sacred Steel has developed quite a large clientele over the years after establishing connections via Douche Larouche members, neighboring chapters, family, and friends. This keeps Jason and his crew extremely busy as they work hard to transform dozens of bikes into hand-crafted masterpieces. Sacred Steel Bikes will showcase just what it takes to create these uniquely fabricated motorcycles.
Besides appearing on Sacred Steel Bikes, Jason is no stranger to the camera, having appeared on shows such as the History channel’s Chopper Wars back in 2009. Chop Cult noted that along with his crew, they won the competition with a P-51 theme bike called Cripes A’Mighty. On this season of Sacred Steel Bikes, Jason needs a “statement” bike that will turn heads and generate some buzz for the shop. His end goal is to produce a special motorcycle worthy of gracing the cover of Easyriders magazine.
Jason has never finished a bike in less than a year, and the cover shoot is only two short weeks away. With a very short time frame, Wilson and his Larouche team will have to scramble to create a throwback show bike they decide to call the Indigo Moon. This is a great opportunity for the Sacred Steel Bikes crew, but even with everyone pitching in to help, getting the bike done and landing on the cover of Easyriders magazine will not be an easy feat. As Sacred Steel Bikes highlights the build, viewers will quickly discover that Jason and his Larouche crew have personalities that are just as loud as the bikes they produce.
