But it was the real deal, and after creating a 15 minute audition tape, the Russell Wilson Super Bowl Jersey 23 year old Srpan was offered a spot on the show.

If he wins, Srpan said he then would move on to the next round and build another bike to compete against winners of the other episodes.
To help put his experience on the show to good use, on June 14 Zeppe s Tavern in Newbury Township will host The Raw Iron Choppers Unveil Bash. The bike built on the show, as well as other motorcycles and hot rods, will be on display, vendors will be giving away prizes and live music will entertain the crowd. Funds raised at the event also will benefit the Blessing House in Lorain, which provides temporary housing for children whose families are in crises.
After the June 14 party, Srpan said he will probably sell the bike. He assured prospective buyers that it s not just a show bike, as he s put about 200 miles with the motorcycle out on the road.
