Plot Synopsis

During AMERICAN CHOPPER, Paul Teutul Sr. fired his son, Paul Jr., from the family business. Paul Sr. continues to run Orange County Choppers (OCC) while Paul Jr. opened his new business, Paul Jr. Designs (PJD), across the street from OCC's original site. Even though they build different types of bikes -- Sr. focuses on cutting edge technology and Jr. builds more traditional creations -- the tension in this father-son relationship is as heated as ever. Paul Jr. added fuel to the fire by hiring former OCC employees, including his brother Mikey, Vinnie DiMartino, Robert 'Nub' Colard and Joe Puliafico. And this fiery family feud is on full display from the beginning -- there's an outrageous on-air radio confrontation between Jr. and Sr. in the first episode. The boys eventually reconciled enough to work together again, and AMERICAN CHOPPER returned in Fall 2012, replacing this series.
