PTGTV Announces Reality Show Featuring RB Customs of Texas in the "American Biker Series"

DEERFIELD BEACH, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 2, 2006 -- PTGTV is currently in production on a special half-hour reality program within its highly acclaimed "American Biker Series," featuring the work of Roman Blum and his team at RB Customs.

Blum, owner and founder of RB Customs, along with his talented team headquartered in Houston, TX, was selected by the producers of the "American Biker Series" to create, build and deliver a one-off themed chopper for PTGTV. The bike will be displayed in the company's lobby to promote its educational TV shows, and will be featured as well at major sporting events in Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

GEICO, which offers motorcycle and vehicle insurance, will be featured as a commercial sponsor throughout the show.

"As we narrowed down our search for the right builder, it was apparent that Roman Blum and RB Customs were a perfect fit for this project," said Doug Scott, PTGTV president and CEO. "The airing schedule for this will be ESPN2, FOX Sports Net and the Speed Channel. We also will be selling the show into syndication."

"'The American Biker Series' has chosen me because of my originality and commitment to a reliable product," said Blum. "Customer satisfaction has made me who I am today. My priority is my goal to create and produce a product that is flawless. Perfection is a must! It's all about one's attitude toward commitment and satisfaction."

The show will be a real-life experience showing how a custom one-off goes from concept to creation. Viewers will see day-to-day details as well as one-on-one interviews that take them behind the scenes to view the production through the eyes of a custom builder. The challenge to all this is: a project that typically takes four months needs to be completed within 30 days.

Multiple locations have been chosen for filming, and they include RB Customs shop in Houston and the studios of PTGTV in Deerfield Beach, FL.

Delivery of the completed chopper will be an occasion: either at a major sporting event's halftime show or at a major bike show.
