For seven great years, the Teutel family gave us weekly entertainment and drama...not to mention awesome motorcycles.
The guys on American Chopper worked tirelessly to create amazing custom-style motorcycles for their clients. There was Paul Sr., the owner of Orange County Choppers, and the boss of everyone.
Then, of course, there was Paul Jr. (Paulie), who yearned to get out from under his father's wing at the shop. He had his own creative ideas and the two constantly fought. Eventually, Paulie left to start his own shop.
And who could forget Mikey Teutel, the comic relief of it all?
In 2010, the show ended its seven season run after an explosive argument between Paul Sr. and Paul Jr.. However, they weren't off TV for long, as Paul Jr. opened a rival chopper shop across the street from his dad. American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior premiered just seven months after the original show was cancelled. Two seasons after it started, Senior vs. Junior was cancelled.
It's been five years since the Teutel family has been on our screens, but the wait is finally over!
