For each episode, three motorcycle builders from a select region will be given five weeks and $15,000 to build their own custom bike. Viewers across the nation will then be able to tweet their choice for best custom build live throughout the hour to determine the winner -- live. Based on audience votes, each week will see a different winner in each region.

#BikerLive is one of seven new series that Discovery Channel will be debuting in the cable network's 2014-15 season, which also includes 15 show renewals.
