Does Shaquille O'Neal owe money to Jesse James for a bike?

I heard through the grapevine that Jesse James of West Coast Choppers built a chopper for Shaq and Shaq never paid him for the bike. What's the dope on this? Any truth or only a rumor?

I can at least confirm the first part of that....Jesse did build a chopper for was documented in one of the early shows abut Jesse. As for whether he paid him for it or not, that I don't know....

On the Dan Patrick Show Shaq said he'd been told it was a gift or freebie of some kind, then Jesse James decided it wasn't. He did say he hadn't paid for it.

The way I remembered the show, it seemed like it was a surprise for Shaq for winning the NBA championship or something. Well, no it wasn't a surprise, because I remember Shaq going to Jesse's garage to be fitted for the bike. It was huge.

Yeah, but the question is who has the balls to go collect?
