OCC Back on TV in American Chopper: Sr vs Jr

Thursday, April 8, 2010
While Sr. and Jr. put on their all-business  all-the-time faces  Mikey flashes his trademark easy-going grin.
They're back! Not two months after TLC pulled the plug on American Chopper, the TV station is now planning to film a new series that pits the competing motorcycle shops of Orange County Choppers, run by Senior, against Paul Jr.'s new bike-building enterprise.   
‘They’re back.’ Just like the house destroying ghosts in the movie Poltergeist, the antics of the dysfunctional motorcycle-building Teutul clan will soon be back on the air. According to Orange County Choppers official website, TLC is preparing to bring back American Chopper in a new show entitled American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior. The site states that “Orange County Choppers are amped up and ready to roll!”

American Chopper redux will feature both Senior’s current OCC enterprise and Junior’s fledgling bike shop as competing businesses. Paul Jr. left the show with bad blood between him and his father and started up his own company, Paul Jr. Designs. Originally Paulie separated himself from building custom motorcycles, opting to lend his keen eye for design to companies like Coleman for whom he created the Coleman RoadTrip Grill. But now he’s getting back into the moto industry and has opened up his own business across from the original OCC shop in Rock Tavern, NY.

The conflict within the family has spilled into court. The two are currently fighting over the date to be used to decide the value of the Orange County Choppers enterprise at the time Paul Jr. left the family business for buy-out purposes. Paul Jr. owns a 20% share of the business while Senior has the rights to the remaining 80%. The case is pending trial before the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of Orange.

American Chopper’s hiatus was short-lived. TLC canceled the show in early February of this year. American Chopper debuted in September 2002 on the Discovery Channel until TLC took over broadcasting in 2007. Filming for the new series is said to begin next week with the first episode projected to air in August.

Media hype states that the two haven’t talked in a year, a truth that only the Teutuls know for sure. But Paul Jr. stated in a report in the New York Post that he was “hopeful for reconciliation.” We’ll wager the show’s producers hope that doesn’t happen any time soon because interest in the show hinges on capitalizing on the familial dispute and the tempestuous relationship between father and son.

Paul sr. is a great guy to have on the show but he's the kind of guy that should never been allowed to have children. Paul sr. is so jealous of paul jr. that he hates him because every body knows that without jr. there would be no OCC. If Paul sr. was any kind of a man he would be helping Paul jr. not trying to destroy him

First off.... Paul sr. Is a ass hole because no matter what paul jr. Is his son and very talented!! With out paul jr. Occ would be nothing!! I don't know what the hell sr. Is thinking he is surrounded by yes men!! Paul jr. And vinnie did the work of the 40 jerfoffs paul sr. Has now! That manager of occ is a clown the one that stays in office and does shit! Rick needs to go with paul jr. I wish jr much success he deserves it! He built the occ brand with his talent and designs!! Real talk!!

There is nothing better then a lively thread. I have to agree and disagree. Paul Jr is designer, Paul SR is a business man, senior is not a designer. Has he designed one bike this season? I know Jason has designed some great bikes. Junior has designed some great bikes as well. As for the personal stuff. why focus on it? Isn't the show about the bikes? Working and subscribing to DISH Network I get to watch every episode in crystal clear HD, the bikes sparkle, but it doesn't do anything to make Senior look any better.

We have lots of feelings about this show. Hated the argueing in the early days, but learned to love the people. Then....we started seeing people we loved, leave the show and it lost it's family atmosphere. Now the total division.It's very sad. Before it had balance. Now all Sr. can say is how much better he is than Jr. Dude, it's your kid! You're an idiot. Your family should be more important than any show!!!You guys all have your positives and negatives. We're pulling for Paul Jr. We think he has moral character which exceeds business sense anyday!

DOES JERRY SPRINGER PRODUCE THIS "SHOW"? IT'S JUST LIKE JERRY SPRINGER WITH MOTORCYCLES. MORE LIKE JERRY SPRINGER WITH SPIDER WEB CHOPPERS.

This is a different type of show than other tv shows, have sat for hours watching and not wanting to change stations. Hope this program keeps running for years. Lot of shows are the same thing week after week.
Keep up the GREAT shows.
Bigmac -Sr vs Jr 2  January 6, 2011 03:34 PM
As far as the personal crap between Sr, Jr and Mikey... not really sure what to make of it. In the new show, Sr is unyielding and unappoligetic as far as his sons go. Jr is somewhat of a prima donna, and Mikey is lost. I will always love the old show, the new one, is a little depressing to watch. Jr definitely has talent as a designer, but I do believe Sr has the superior business smarts out of the two. I think Jr is finding that out with his new business venture. I hope they both do well, as i said, loved the old show and hope it comes back to that someday. Good luck to you crazy fuking Teutuls!!!
Bigmac -Sr vs Jr  January 6, 2011 03:13 PM
I love this show, I love the bikes even more. But I had a chance to ride one a few yrs back and was somewhat dumbfounded at the engineering of the bike. This was one of their lower end bikes...still beautiful, but it had a lot of electrical issues. It would have trouble starting and at times short out completely. The guy who owned it, was a little upset after forking out 40Gs for it, but it hardly diminished his love for it. They are showoff bikes, one to ride to the local watering hole and brag about how much cooler it is than everyone else's. As far as a riders bike... not so much. Hard to handle, but maybe thats just me, i ride sport bikes. They are definitely eye candy though!!!
Rich Lentz -Retired fabricator/welder  January 4, 2011 08:24 AM
I know what it takes to make something out of a piece of steel. Did it for over 35 years. So Jr does have design talent. Jason P can't do anything without the computer design system doing it for him, he is a no talent kiss ass. I could do better with a crayon. Mikie they just made a place for him. Cut the fighting out it is counterproductive, get back to building kick ass bikes.
kmoff6 -Scripted Reality TV  December 22, 2010 09:17 PM
This is all a Joke they are in t for the Money no other reason. It is getting very boring, Time to move on.
itsashow -3 Stooges  December 14, 2010 01:12 AM
Oh come on people. It's still the 3 Stooges show. They all made money from the acting and the staged fighting and when they show gets cancelled all will be well. How many doors has Sr kicked off the hings always in front of a camera, the storming off the set by Jr, and Mikey ?, what does he do, except he's living off his acting income. It's a big soap opera. Nobody's going to watch them make the same old bikes forever, what have they really made that's out of the box lately.


Dave -Fatherhood  December 6, 2010 03:05 PM
I doubt you'll even take the time to read any of these but I must say this becuaes it bothers me so much. I have been a dedicated watcher from the start but now I can not sit through even one show. I have a Son of 22 years and he's made his share of mistakes but no matter what they are I could never in my life turn my back on him. I wish that you would stop referring youself as a father because you are not. Don't you remember that when we make these kids and give our love unconditionally there's no persentage of money involved. There's no "I build this empire" or 'If it weren't for me" your rewards should be when you set back and see how great they do without you. That's your teachings. Not being a boss and standing right over them like any other employeer in the shop. You are my age and some day you may realise that you want all your sons part of your life and you may have burned the bridge too far. You don't want to die a lonely man and money can not buy you what you kids can give you. Put aside your ego and let jr. have any thing he wants and at the same time make amends with the rest of you kids and start showing them you're a good father. Evevryone already knows you're a loud mounth so why not change and fill that empty whole in your heart. Be a Father and a DAD and not an Asshole.
BS -For all you Senior LOvers and Paulie Haters I say  December 2, 2010 11:56 AM
OH please, Junior Compromised Senior? Has to be on Time? He was part owner of OCC, and Seniors son, yet Senior treated him no better then a simple employee, worse in fact. He treated those who were not related to him better, and treated a part owner, meaning partner in truth, as less then his other employees, constantly belittling and degrading him. That's the bottom line many of you Senior lovers and Paulie haters seem to forget. If I am a partner and part owner, and I want to be 10, 15 minutes late, or whatever, then I can. Junior simply follows his fathers example, a guy who does whatever he wants, and was supposed to be his partner. Senior wanted to have his cake and eat it to. Have his son as both an employee, and a fully vested partner who would take the blame, and the part of the financial hit, if the business failed. Ehhh, sorry, you can't have it both ways. Either Junior is a partner in the business, or he is not. Senior never really seemed to grasp this, nor did he give his son respect. No, he only focused on whatever nonsense he could nit pick as an excuse to lash out, when the truth is he was angry because his son got the credit and the attention he thought he deserved. Simple inferiority complex. If being late, as a partner, makes me lazy, well then heck, that's absurd. If I own part of a business I will show up whenever I darn well please. Yes Senior owned the majority, but I think what people miss is that Junior pretty much did the things he did to make a point, and say "Hey, your late all to time, how are we different?" Ah yes, Senior is the boss, however Pauly was no rank and file employee, and should not have been focused upon for such little nonsense. That little nonsense was blown way out of proportion by how much Senior kepy focusing upon it, thereby making people eventually believe that Paulie was indeed lazy and had no work ethic. For anyone with a decently strong mind that doesn't fall for such mesmerism as the old "repeat it enough and it become true" schtick, it's pretty clear that Senior is a major control freak, and that what's what's most important to him, being in control. Hell, the day Juniors shop opening Senior goes by on his bike, stops, and gives some negative comments on camera. Bottom line, Senior is a jerk, an he doesn't deserve anyone's respect. Since when did being old engender respect when you are also an A hole? I'll only tolerate someones crap for so long before I say something. Parent or not, that doesn't give anyone the right to abuse another, or require that other to take it. No, this is all entirely Seniors fault, no getting around that. He has done his best to create a fiction to justify his abuse. His son is clearly not lazy, and is clearly a hard worker if you look past Seniors rank amateur mesmerism. Also, why are you Senior lovers ignoring his behavior in this new show, or is it because you have not watched, or know he is out of line, so best not to address it? trying to hire Juniors employees? You have got to be kidding. I think that entitles Junior to hire Seniors employees, how can he complain after what he did? I'd also like to point out that Rick is completely overrated as a fabricator. He does decent work, but that's all. Take care.

Why is there no up to date info on the Teutul's and is the show gone completely? Sick of reading same ol crap! Cody ever get his bike back?
"Chuckie" -"It's all too much"  October 18, 2010 08:29 AM
To all of you GAS BAGS, WANKERS, MORONS - this forum says nothing but utter rubbish. Paul Senior vs Paul Junior, who gives a rats ass, "now" Mikey, he is in this company as comic relief for the TV series of OCC. Personally i think the show is over rated, why would anyone be bothered watching such rubbish. But then again, why would anyone bother buying an American Motorcycle anyway when the Japanese have all the modern technology and are the world leaders in the Automotive Industry. BREATH DEEP & SMELL THE BULLSH*T that OCC puts out!
Dave -Get Real  October 17, 2010 07:41 PM
Well, what side to choose. Who gives a rip. Money being passed on to these clowns from the tv networks. Man thats where real money at not the junk bikes they are making. They probably get together after taping and have good laugh at american public for falling for this crap. There feel a little better:)
Michael Paul Ryan -none  October 13, 2010 03:52 PM
I agree Jason Poole is a tool goof ball and without OCC he would be designing greeting cards, as for Sr., have you ever noticed his mustache which is 30 too old looks like all his bikes handlebars? he likes to tilt his head back when he rides. Jr. is lazy BUT talented and he will prevail in the end, as for Mikey a big LOSER who is riding on his fathers coatails and will never get anywhere in life, oh back to Jason, a POSERg
jon -family first  October 13, 2010 11:56 AM
what kind of a father would treat his 3 son's this way??? a jack ass! if you watch his show he had problems with his oldest son's who he sold the steel company to, and now paul jr and mikey. come on? i wish i could believe this was all a script but it doesnt seem to be and i know big paul aint that good of an actor. his whole family helped make that buiseness what it is and the show made them who they are. when i watch i just know as a dad i hope i would never be that big of an asshole to my family. money can come and go, family will always be their for you. if i was a ex addict id bin their for my boy day and night threw recover and after. grow up big paul and stop trying to sabotage your son, you should guide him and help him to succeed , that what a father does. i know deap down you cant feel happy with your self or sleep at night. miss out on your boys life, marrages, grand kids??? i feel sorry your you...
ceasor -Occ  October 8, 2010 08:39 AM
There was one epasode where sr. vs Jr. build off wher they both built a bike and let the people decide who's bike was better and jr. won.the people chose Jr. bike over Sr. bike. Trouble started between Jr. and sr. the last season when Sr. Started bringing his girlfriend into the picture.Also Senor stared doing more with Jason because Sr. wasn't intimadated by him. Others in the organization olso wanted jr. out so they could step in and take credit for occ success and sr. went along with them because he's not very smart. Rick at occ seems to be the only pearson to really seem concerned about the problems between sr. and jr.

Bob Richards -Father of 6  September 24, 2010 01:08 PM
I watch the new show. I know that much is done for ths sake of the show. Vinnie has his own shop with Cody, "V Force". Obviously the deal for them to have thier own show fell through. TLC has made a deal with Sr.& Jr. So Vinnie has joined Jr. for the new show. Obviously the money is better on tv. I do enjoy watching Jr. and Vinnie on the new show. To watch how they are dealing with starting a new business I find interesting. I would love to know who is backing Jr. financially. Sr. I am sorry to say is not so enjoyable. His constant childish actions and comments belittleing his son's talent and efforts to start his own business shows he is jealous and affraid. I for one am very tired of his ranting.
Jacksterman -Need your head examined  September 23, 2010 05:49 PM
Sr. has become nothing but the jackass father of Jason the jackass son he has wanted all this time. This cupcake Jason is a PAB and wont be recognized or at all remembered for anything for contributing to the success of OCC. Traded your sons for money and power didnt ya? Jr. made OCC what it is and that is that. Nothing you can do or say will ever change it. Wake up Sr. and take some personal inventory. Get your mind right man. The shows fans like myself from day one are watching and your making an ass out of yourself. You and your puppet crew laugh if Paulie had a bike reck for real. You should have been the make shift dummy on that bike off the ramp, because brother your the one I affraid is on a crash course. Rock on Jr. and Mikey. Love your father anyway.
Dave Rawlings -Journalist  September 18, 2010 10:09 AM
Oh, sigh. Will senior be happy as he lies dying in hospital that OCC will be operated by Jim Quinn, or some other hanger on? Will this brain-damaged, half-blind bully see the light? Not likely. Tell it like it is. Senior started the business. Paul Jr. gave all his adult life to the enterprise. Senior sez it was him and only him that made it work. Bull. OCC would still be a shoestring operation without the TV show. As for the designs of Jason Poole, the man is a moron. Who designs a motorcycle for a website company with wheels that have cartoon cutouts of the STAFF OF OCC. That's like taking your kids to see Santa Claus and getting a picture of the store photographer!
As for Paul Jr. moving on, it's not like he's a lawyer who could leave his father's practice and bring clients with him. A motorcycle builder builds motorcycles.
Yours very truly
Dave L. Rawlings Jr.
Randy -Sr is an ass  September 16, 2010 08:11 PM
I think every family has problems, but I think it is messed up that Sr is determine for his son to fail. A father should encourage or at least hope for a son to succeed, regardless of personal issues.
Craftylady -Big "A" HOLE  September 16, 2010 07:17 PM
Paul senior is the biggist "a" hole I've ever seen. If his head gets any bigger it's going to explode. IF he would stop putting Paul Jr.
down all the time and acknowledge the work and designs he has done,
they just might develope some respect for each other. but this will never happen because Paul senior is to conceited. No one is as smart
as he is--he's never wrong. Why would any one want to get up and go to work just to get screamed at all day--that's real incentive. When
Paul Jr. was working there--senior just sit an his ass in the office just waiting for an excuse to stick his head out the door to holler
at Jr.and start a fight. Paul Jr.made some awesome designs for OCC.
But do you hear anything about that from Senior --of coarse not. "HE"
made the business a success--sitting on his ass.
Rusty -Live and Let Live  September 14, 2010 10:51 AM
Has anyone out there never had a disagreement with thier father before? Maybe Sr isn't the best dad, but Jr sure as hell isn't the best son either. Yeah Jr came up with some good ideas, but it took the team of OCC to make them a reality. After watching the new AC series I noticed Jr is having extreme difficulty getting someone to want a custom bike. And when he decides to build one anyway...he comes up with a spider themed bike. Been there..Done that...some of have the T-shirt. His whole business now is being developed from his 20% share of OCC. If it wasn't for that , he would have gone under by now. Both of them miss the spotlight from TV fame, or they would not have agreed to do the new show. I have read Jr would like to reconsile with his dad, and read how Sr missed his son's wedding. I beleve if Jr was my son and we were not getting along no better than publicized, Iwould miss the wedding also, so only not to cause tension or trouble on Jr's special day. And what the hell is up with Mikey? Why would he be at ends with Sr anyway? The man has let this goof do whatever he wants and never complain. The boy is more of a FU than all of them! Anyway, they should let things pass, combine the 2 shops as OCC the company and Paul Jr Designs a subsidary. After all, everyone that says OCC would be nothing without Jr has been fooling themselves, and if Sr wanted to, he could hire a designer to work for OCC!
Mark -go JR  September 13, 2010 11:43 AM
after jr got fired from OCC the bikes are crap. they all look the same with a different paint job. as much as SR doesnt want to admitt it JR was OCC and HIS designs are what brought in the customers. look at the detail in his bikes compared to the new OCC bikes. i think SR want JR out of business fast cause he knows he has no one that can design a bike like JR and when people see that he will lose business.

SR is a idiot and likes to play the victim card alot.
Dan -The first two seasons are the ones with the quality.  September 9, 2010 08:14 PM
One of the reasons why I liked the first two seasons of American Chopper was the fact it took atleast two episodes to make each bike, which meant that we got to see more of the actual fabrications and designs. These days it's more or less an episode for a bike and most of said episode is used for BS meaning we don't get to see the actual building process as much as we'd like. It's kind of pointless in my opinion that a series that is supposed to promote building choppers has been reduced to a squable fest between two immature brats. It is sad that out of the five seasons that I have seen (And snippets from the other seasons), the best OCC bikes like the Black Widow and POW came from the first two seasons.
Sheri -Paul Sr. up for the worst father of the year award  September 2, 2010 06:59 PM
Come on Sr is so greedy that he won't give Jr. a fair price and sues him. Are you kidding me? As a parent your job is to help your kids along not make it more difficult for them. When he dies who the hell does he think he's going to leave his fortune to?

I'm on team Jr. The kid grew up well in spite of having a greed, absent father.
Keith (Sacramento) -Sr's comments don't ring true  September 2, 2010 01:13 PM
Paul Sr. seems to be one contradiction after another. In one episode he celebrates his years of sobriety, saying he white-knuckled it. The latest episodes he says he went thru the program; but what we see is a man in conflict. His anger outbursts indicate, in my opinion, that he's never dealt with the original problem. He also shows indications of OCD or ADHD behaviors, and doesn't seem to want to deal with it. He admits not being there for his family a good part of their lives because of his addiction, and now that he's back he's micromanaging everyone. I think he should get counseling and worry about his family - and not so much his pocketbook.
Kevin -OCC is done  September 1, 2010 10:58 PM
The OCC bikes are so bland and unimaginative now. Once people start to realize that I think OCC will be experiencing some hard times if they aren't already. People are just paying for the brand now when they order a custom bike from OCC. You could go buy a chopper from anyone else for a fraction of the price and be just as satisfied with the product. 2 examples: 1. A bike for a window company. The only unique feature on the whole bike was the mirrors that looked like windows. That's it. You could buy a chopper from any other company and have them custom order some mirrors that looked like windows and save tens of THOUSANDS of dollars. 2. The bike for the welding company. 2 unique features on this one. A headlight that looks like a welding mask(which I liked) and a welding torch as the rear strut(I think that's what the part is called, I forget). Again its just completely unimaginative and so bland that it makes me want to turn the show off. Nothing over the top like OCC was known for. The only reason I keep watching is to see what Jr is up to. Hopefully after he gets his business up and running, they'll just break off and create a show for his company and just leave OCC out of the picture. Paul Jr was the creative mind behind the OCC bikes and now they have no one to replace him. All they have is a bunch of fabricators with no real designer that knows what will put a bike over the top. Jason can draw on his computer but he doesn't have any idea what will look good on a real bike. Jr was lazy and pretty arrogant while at OCC but no one deserves the kind of harassment and treatment that he got from his so called "father".

JC Royce -Jr. Has The Real Vision, Not Sr.  August 29, 2010 06:38 AM
Sr. will certainly die a very lonely man – If he really ever had one to begin with, he has lost the relationship with his whole family. This is just not about Jr., but the rest of the family as well – That speaks volumes in itself. Sr. has allowed the money and his ego take over his life and he is pathetic in his attempt to have the others of OCC agree and go along with his insane games. His recent attempt to divide Mikie and Jr. proves he only cares about continually destructing the family relationship, and Mikie did the right thing by insisting any get together had to include the whole family, not just him – YOU DID GOOD MIKIE -- Yes, as Sr. keeps reminding everyone, he started the company, but it took Jr. to get it where it is today. Wake-up Sr., you would NEVER be where you are today without Jr’s vision, as you certainly didn’t have it, because it took Jr. to get you there and once you had what you wanted, you pushed him out of the company. You continually show what a small person you really are by your continued belittling of Jr., and the others – This can only come from someone who is not secure in himself or the people they’ve gathered around them as so called friends – There is an old saying, “what goes around, comes around” and hopefully we’ll see that soon.
TommyKnockerz -Junior was the REAL designer.  August 26, 2010 10:59 PM
It's sad to watch senior happy whenever he talks about junior failing. It's almost like he's hoping he fails. I would NEVER wish that on my son. I know I sound like Dr 'frickin' Phil, but I think senior would rather be a 'right fighter' than heal the riff with his sons. What he doesn't realize is that the show was failing because we were tired of watching them build 'cookie cutter' bikes with no real originality to them. Senior does know the mechanics but junior was the real fabricator. Personally, I don't care for senior. He's a pompous ass. I had a friend who bought a bike from them to raffle off to raise money for their fire department. This was a serious custom bike and senior didn't even bother coming out of the office when he picked up the bike. He acted like he was too good. You couldn't pay me to buy an OCC bike. I'd love to be the first to own a Pauli Jr bike. I think that if junior can last through the slow period in the beginning he'll do a great job. I just HATE watching senior put junior down and junior is really taking the 'high road' and keeping negative comments to a minimum. I'm REALLY rooting for junior. I also think that this whole thing is fairly suspicious timing. American Chopper gets pulled off the TV and suddenly there is a 'feud' and suddenly the show is back on. These companies buy these bikes because it's good advertisement and if they're not on TV, there's no reason to buy these high dollar bikes. Look at the companies buying them. Most of them have NOTHING to do with bikes. A window company???? The ONLY thing about the window company were the mirrors and the paint, which they don't do anyway. UNoriginal!!!!! The bikes they are making now are just revamped versions of juniors original designs. They made a bike for a welder company and all they did was make a welding helmet for the headlight and wrap some sheet metal around a stock gas tank.....oooohhh, very original....hard to convey sarcasm in writing but that was sarcasm...lol.
Gord -Sr v Jr  August 26, 2010 06:59 PM
Watching the show right now and I agree with some that Sr does seem to want to see Jr fail.I don't beleave the Jr is gunning for his old man. In fact he seems to want to end this fued with him and be done with it. Yes the old man started the business but he brought the boys in. Sad to see things go this way. I hope things can get better for all of them Also Poor Mike is in the middle. Miky, use this time to make the old man understand how your brother really feels.

Good luck to them!
JC -Hope to see JR's new bike soon  August 23, 2010 10:16 PM
Can't wait to see JR & Vinnie's bikes! Don't care for the bikes since JR left. They don't even make them to fit the owner. The last two I saw were almost to long for SR and way to long for the new owners. Still kinda funny they call it SR vs JR, should be Jason vs JR as Senior does not design anything and usually screws up everything he touches. I like the "free Rick" t-shirt idea. SR yelling and putting down his kids just made the show suck. Hopefully they will focus less on him and more on JR & Vinnie's bikes. To see JR's bikes again I just might have to set my DVR back up.
Bill-Ottawa -Stop the BS.  August 20, 2010 10:09 AM
All I can say is that Sr has to grow up. Stop the BS and move on. The more you open your mouth the more you show your ture self. The more we see the less you have. Shut the F___ Up!!!!!
You can't stand your kids, we know, you don't have to say it every second. Move On, again...... Shut the F__K Up, Again....

Am i the only one that forwards past the senior parts of the show? i just want to see what jr and vinnie are up too. I think they should split the shows up and let the rating do the talking. Go out to jr's site and buy a t shirt, help support him.
The Kidd -OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  August 19, 2010 08:53 PM
I think it's sad the way the family has turned out. I'm not sure if the comment is true about Jr. wanting to destroy his father, but I think it's pretty sad Sr. being so excited and egar to see Jr fail. I pray that Jr. and all the old crew makes a success out of the new bike shop. Hopefully they will get some buids and and remind us what a great bike looks like. They were the best at OCC, and I look foward to seeing them build some great bikes, that is if Hateful Sr doesn't screw everything up for Jr. Why should companys only back one bike shop? Who said there could only be one bike shop? Why should everyone only go to OCC? I say good for you Jr, and best wishes!!!!!!

I really think that the new series will be as good as the original first two or three seasons. It will be more focused on bike building and will demonstrate the abilities of both individuals.
Bob G. -.......father..........  August 12, 2010 08:35 PM
I would be ashamed to call Senior my "parent"! He is an embarrassment and ignorant a**hole. I stress "parent" because NOTHING about this man is a father!

Scott -Ughh... More Teutul Garbage...  August 9, 2010 10:37 AM
Seriously who wants to watch this crap? You got Senior, the old fart that doesn't even know what a wrench is for anymore, he just yells at everyone else to do the work for him, then you got Junior who actually has some talent but is too damn lazy most of the time to use it properly. I watched the series from the start, at first it was fun, watching them build bikes, then they got too big for their heads. Needed a new shop, and then a whole new shop and dealership.. Honestly the show was only good the first few seasons, tucked away in that little hole of a shop and Senior sitting at the desk and screaming, at least then they built nice bikes. Now they just build cookie cutter crap that doesn't sell as good, so its time for more TV hype. Honestly if Jr would take his head out of his arse and put his life in his hands and be more productive, which i think he is finally realizing now starting his own shop, he could take Senior out competition wise. Jr was the one with the cutting edge designs and always pushing for the equipment in house to do everything there instead of farming it out. Many people don't realize the only reason why the designs and the stock bikes got lame was because Senior pushed for profit in the later years, he didnt care about the looks, just the dollar signs. Will be interesting to see what Jr comes up with on his own. They also lost some of their best employees over the years... Vinnie seems to be doing ok on his own also! Senior is just a leech that sucks the life out of anyone that works for him.
Tj -A REAL Biker  August 8, 2010 10:58 AM
Jr was OBVIOUSLY always the REAL talent, having a large bank account, an out of style FU MAN CHU Stash and a large MOUTH isn't an asset when building a bike, sorry SR, the truth hurts at times.
Rick -OCC  July 27, 2010 02:46 PM
Ive watched the show from the start when they were hungry the bikes were kool,now after the fame and money, It got ugly and over produced,Now i hope they reconcile because family is family, I wish them the best let the love of money leave their eyes and find the family bond once again,

Moit -End of an Empire  July 25, 2010 11:07 AM
All good things will come to an end. Jr's one of the main reasons that company's where it's at. The old man is a poor business man, a mediocre bike builder at best, and totally lacks parenting skills. I know more than one person who dealt with him on a business level and claim he's a scumbag who feels you owe him to be allowed to be a vendor. Personally I think Vinnie and Rick are he true Talent behind the past bikes with Jr's creative ideas. So let Adolph run hs mouth! His kids hate him, and not long away he wont even be able to buy their affection back.

Mikey -I guess making BBQ pits doesn't pay the bills?  July 5, 2010 11:14 PM
Dude went from a multi-million dollar opportunity to being a whore for Coleman's image rebranding. Design?.......What design Jr.? All he did was tell the lead engineer to paint the unit black and chrome the legs and replace the tin table lids with diamond plated aluminum. Wow. Genius, I did not want to the Ronco......err......I mean Coleman BBQ pit but now that the legs are chromed to match my ride I will pay the extra cost added to the unit to put Jr's fat mug on the box. What a bunch of idiots, that whole loser family. The old man was to dumb to figure out that he should of just gotten out of the way and be the figure head to sell the product. The arrogant, lazy, dumb son who was living in a false reality of entitlement taking advantage of and sheeting all over the others who worked in the shop especially Vinnie and Rick. I feel sorry for the employees of OCC but I hope the business crashes and burns. This country needs to reset. To see this dysfunction rebound would only make our society and
Twolf -Come on  May 30, 2010 06:56 PM
Do you really think that if this family was at each others throat as it appeared that Paul Jr. or Mikey would have been on tv during the same air time as Senior. NO! It sure was funny that Junior and Mikey was on nearly every show. They needed to get paid for their showing as well. Also do you think that Paul Senior would have allowed them to be on AMERICAN CHOPPERS if they had nothing to do with the show. Seniors other son was not on every show. Why? He had a steel company to run and was connected with the American Choppers show. STAIGHTEN UP PEOPLE!
BIGTEE! -THE ONLY OPINION THAT MATTERS!  May 12, 2010 03:53 PM
ANYONE ELSE TAKE THE TIME TO NOTICE THAT OCC HASN'T BUILT A DECENT BIKE SINCE PAULY JR. LEFT?
WHAT WITH THE LOVE AFFAIR BETWEEN SR. AND THOSE ASSHOLE WORKERS HE TRADED HIS SONS IN FOR, RICK AND THE OTHER VAMPIRE TOOTHED LOSER, (I'M SURE HE HAS A NAME, YOU KNOW THE GUY WHO DRAWS PICTURES ON THE COMPUTER ALL DAY).
DOES SR THINK ALL THE MACHINERY IN THE WORLD AND ANY ASSHOLE WORKERS CAN REPALCE A NATURAL TALENT LIKE JR's...
I'D SAY HE IS DUMB THAN HE LOOKS BUT I'M NOT SO SURE THATS POSSIBLE.
I MEAN HE ACTUALLY THINKS HE BUILT THAT COMPANY, HE'LL NEVER UNDERSTAND IT WAS AMERICAN CHOPPER THAT BUILT OCC NOT THE OTHER WYA AROUND. I GIVE SR. CREDIT, BECAUSE HE IS A WAR VETREN, BUT FOR NOTHING ELSE. OTHER THAN THAT HE IS JUST ANOTHER DUMBASS DRUG ADDICT -ALCOHOLIC HARD AT WORK DESTROYING ALL HE TOUCHES. HE MAYBE WE SHOULD ELECT HIM PRESIDENT!
Chopper lover!!! -Bring back!!! Love American Chopper!!!!  April 28, 2010 08:50 PM
This is fantastic news. All the naysayers out there can bite me. This is really good news. Welcome back boys! Hope 'everybody' is back. And every so often, somebody put Jason Barnes' talent to use. I for one can't wait. Again....welcome back boys and girls.
JERONIMO -MMA FIGHTER  April 27, 2010 02:43 PM
THESE GUYS SHOULD GET AN OSCAR FOR REALITY TV SHOW ACTING. IT IS BRILLIANT AS SR. SUES JR IN A REAL COURT TO FORCE JR. TO SELL HIS 20% AND THEN WHEN OCC GOES DOWN THE CRAPPER IN FULL BANKRUPTCY AT LEAST THEY WERE ABLE TO CONSERVE 20% OF THE ACTUAL ASSETS AND HAVE A NEW START IN THE NEW BUSINESS ALL READY ESTABLISHED. THIS IS BETTER THAN A STORY LINE IN THE WWE AND ALL YOU SUCKERS BOUGHT INTO IT HOOK, LINE AND SINKER.. MIKEY'S STAND UP COMEDY LESSONS MAYBE WONT PAY OFF AND HE MIGHT HAVE TO GO BACK TO POLISHING THE KNOBS THERE FOR SR. AND JR. BUT HE SEEMS TO HAVE GREAT EXPERTISE IN THAT AREA AND THE HARDER THE CHROME, THE BETTER THE SHINE..
Kraig -Family  April 26, 2010 05:48 AM
Working with family is what this show is about. For those of us that work with family members on a regular basis, it's more about watching that, than them building bikes. I can relate to most stuff that they delt with on a daily basis, that's why I like it.

James Johnson -OCC and JJ  April 12, 2010 03:41 PM
I watched the first two seasons of American Chopper, and have some inside info on how the dynamic really was even before they got the show. It was very real. That's just how they were. After the third season, it just got played upon, and worked in as almost the feature of the show. They did the same with American Hotrod. in that case , it totally backfired. They thought the fabricated turmoil would be good for ratings, but instead, it tarnished The Cod's image, and people were getting wise to the whole "impossible deadline" schtick.
Just another example of corporate greed beating it's cashcow in to the ground.
I agree....they should stay gone. Not to derail the thread but i have to respond. As far as the comment above about Jesse.......How exactly is he making millions now off this scandal? His stock is plummeting, and he's been voted Most Hated Man in America. All for boning a handful of opportunistic skanks! Yeah, he's a crapbag of a husband, but I'd take him anyday over American Cake Decorator...Er Chopper. He's barely made a peep since this stuff broke, just denying a sex tape, and.... That's it. The media has absolutely run rapant and destroyed this man in almost all other aspects of his life over two bit allegations, and why? Because he's married to arguably one of the most cherrished actresses in Hollywood. If he was married to a regular Jill......this stuff would be forgotten the next day.
He did wrong....no contest.....but I've been really surprised how every little tidbit of rumoured info is being taken as fact and reported. I don't usually watch any reality TV....did'nt watch Monster Garage, and don't follow Entertainment News shows, but this stuff has kept me riveted with all the inacuracies. Let's just say the racist and dogfighting allegations are 100% false. That is a fact. BTW....stay tuned. The story is this Michelle Bombshell scammer is about to release allegations of some other married men she's supposedly boinked and has painful dirt on them as well.

Let's take Repo off also....
what some dumb ass shows.

I agree about repo, that show is so fake, now about OCC, This is starting to sound like a soap opera, if the things in this show are real, then Sr. needs to start acting like a real father, to have that kind of hate for your son is just wrong, and whats with him cutting all kinds of slack to mikey ? I mean he seems like a nice guy, but he needs to get off his butt and do something with his life, I wish my dad had a shop for me to prove myself, any way just MHO

Andee (Andrea) -artist  April 12, 2010 10:43 AM
I have always loved the creativity of this family...I can do without the rages of Sr....I wish they would become the loving family they deserve to be....Sr. needs to be so very proud of his children...the example he sets with all his anger and rage is only hurting Jr. and Mike ....and Sr. too...What a shame....I have a huge NAPA cut-out of the 3 of them....Please....when the show comes back...lets have peace and respect in this family!!! We don't need the "tough-guy" persona any longer....be a real FAMILY...give each other the respect and love you all deserve!! Without this aspect, I'm afraid the family will be torn apart, and take O.C.C. along with it!! What a shame this would be!!!
Matt -Worth giving a look  April 12, 2010 07:36 AM
As a designer I have always enjoyed watching the creative process that goes into building each custom bike. I would probably watch the new show for that aspect alone. Hopefully covering two bike shops/builds will mean less drama filler in each episode.
andy -soap opera  April 10, 2010 07:39 AM
Iam with JB...get the "Buildoff" back that was at least about creative motorcycles.... this lame ass show about a highly disfunctional family !!! ;)
ZAPPA- -WHY NOT  April 10, 2010 06:06 AM
JR.IS VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE SUCH A GOD GIVING TALENT DESIGNING MOTOR-
CYCLES,WHY WASTE IT.I'M SURE HE'LL FLOURISH,AND I WISH HIM THE BEST.
AND NOT TO TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM SR.'S EXPERTISE,EXCEPT HIS MOUTH AND CRITICISM!I ALSO THINK IT WOULD BRING BOTH OF THEM TO ANOTHER LEVEL TO OUT DO ONE ANOTHER.AND MOST IMPORTANT,GET ALONG LIKE FATHER AND SON.GOOD LUCK GUYS...

would so watch the new show, and by the way we don't get rewarded for screwing up because we are not celebrities. We follow the lives of these people for the drama in their lives otherwise watching the shows would be just like living you boring life. there i said my piece take whichever way you will
Buellish -Noooooo  April 9, 2010 08:11 AM

when the show came on in 02 it was edgy and chic. Now it has run its course and the public is in to other things. One last show may be fitting, kind of like a reunion show, but I think its still too early for that...
True -I like the show  April 8, 2010 07:14 PM
And I'm glad to see it back... why are you guys even bothered about it returning if you don't like it? Just change the channel.
MIKE -KY  April 8, 2010 12:27 PM
Why do we keep up with all this crap. Take these shows, Tiger Woods, Jesse James and flush them. They are making millions of dollars off of their actions. If the normal guy screws around on his wife no big deal but when Tiger and Jesse do it they will make millions.
