Tucker Rocky Joins Paul Teutul Jr. in Sr. vs Jr.
Tuesday, July 13, 2010
Tucker Rocky announced at its recent dealer show that it will be sponsoring Paul Teutul Jr. for the first year of his new TV program, "American Chopper: Senior vs Junior."
Paul Teutul Jr. has a new ally on his side. Tucker Rocky and its V-Twin aftermarket parts and accessories distributor, Biker’s Choice, will sponsor his new company, Paul Jr. Designs, for the new TV show, “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior.”
The partnership was announced at Tucker Rocky’s Dealer Show this past weekend.
Paul Jr.’s first custom build for the new show will be a combination of parts provided by Biker’s Choice as well as custom pieces of Paulie’s own design. The new TLC series will pit father against son in competing motorcycle shops. Paul Jr. originally left the show with plenty of bad blood between him and his father. Junior opened up his own design company and originally stayed away from building bikes. Now he has opened up a shop across from the original OCC
shop in Rock Tavern, NY and will once again be wrenching on motorcycles. Paulie is reportedly bringing back some of the old OCC crew to work for him, like Vinnie DiMartino. The motorcycle Paul Jr. Designs crew creates will be unveiled at Sturgis.
The Tucker Rocky sponsorship is for one year but it leaves the door open for an extended relationship between the two companies. “American Chopper: Senior vs Junior” is scheduled to air August 12 on TLC.
