This season, motorcycle builders Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. reclaim their renowned bike brands, Orange County Choppers and Paul Jr. Designs. They also take steps to mend their formerly fractured relationship and begin to restore a 1951 Buick together.
The show returned to the air last year after being absent for six years, during which legal problems between father and son dominated their attention. As noisy as the bikes they produce, the Teutuls have had a contentious relationship, with Paul Jr. being fired at one point from the father’s Orange County Choppers and forming rival Paul Jr. Designs.
While both shops are located near each other in Orange County, the family feud kept them miles apart. The new series explores their reconciliation after years of cross complaints.
This season, while the Teutuls continue to work with world famous athletes, Forbes 100 businesses, and celebrity clients to evolve their businesses with the changing customized bike market, Paul Sr. takes a risk at Orange County Choppers as he moves his bike designs in a different direction.
However, he also jumps at an opportunity to go back to his roots, designing a throwback line of affordable motorcycles. Meanwhile, Paul Jr. – working to keep up with looming deadlines as he takes on new concepts and builds – challenges himself to build a streamlined bike for the MLB Network, all to impress his father, who recommended him for the job.
American Chopper is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Media Group, with Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis serving as executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Craig Coffman and Todd Lefkowitz are executive producers with Brian Peterson serving as producer.
