The famously feuding father-son team of Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. are back. American Chopper is restarting its engines – again!
After five years off the air, Discovery Channel is reviving the iconic motorcycle-construction reality series American Chopper. The reality series follows feuding father and son motorcycle builders Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. as they put together chopper-style bikes for a high-profile roster of clients.
The father-son duo vow to begin a new chapter – again and put the past behind them. Discovery said that the Teutels are hoping to “reclaim their preeminent bike brands.”
In a statement, the network added: “The Teutuls have been on a wild ride, and it certainly isn’t ending anytime soon. Paul Sr. has revamped Orange County Choppers – turning it into a complex with a shop, café, bowling alley, restaurant and of course, the showroom – but all that didn’t come without a hefty price tag and he is feeling the burden of a high overhead and a lack of foot traffic. Meanwhile, Paul Jr. has also felt the sting of a rough economy – with his business built solely on high-dollar custom-builds and commissions becoming tougher to come by, Paul Jr. stresses about the long-term stability of his own shop, Paul Jr. Designs especially now that he has his own family.”
We’re all ready with our buckets of popcorn and cans of beer.
