Motor City Motors premieres tonight @ 10

From the people behind The Deadliest Catch comes a brand-new Discovery Channel show, and it's set in Detroit.

Motor City Motors follows custom-bike builders Dave and James Kaye, the dudes who run Detroit Bros. Custom Cycles in Ferndale, as they take on Jesse James' old gig and try to build motor revvin' monsters from the ground up.

Each week the Kaye brothers (with their father, John, the wise old owl) tap into the bottomless pool of Detroit gearheads, finding machinists, mechanics and fabricators to take on the task of building a one-of-a-kind vehicle in just five days.

''From turning a 1929 Model T into one of the coolest gassers in the city to transforming a 1992 GMC Suburban into a pothole filler, the builds are limited only by the ingenuity and imagination of the Detroit Brothers and their crews. The Kayes hope the series gives the local community, as well as their own struggling business, a much-needed boost."'

Motor City Motors premieres on Discovery Channel tonight, Monday, Dec. 28, at 10 p.m.
