World-class motorcycle builders, Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. make their highly-anticipated return to Discovery with a new season of American Chopper. The infamous father-son duo are setting out reclaim their preeminent bike brands and, hopefully, rebuild some sort of relationship.
Paul Sr. and Paul Jr., two of the most legendary chopper craftsmen are out to regain their place atop the high-pressure world of customised bike building. With A-list celebrities, world famous athletes and Forbes 100 businesses as clients, millions of dollars and their brands’ reputations are on the line with every signature build. The two estranged builders also hope to reconcile their notoriously fractured relationship.
The Teutuls have been on a wild ride, and it certainly isn’t ending any time 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 now 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, he stresses about the long-term stability of his own shop, Paul Jr. Designs especially now that he has his own family.
The father-son duo vow to begin a new chapter – again - and put the past behind them once and for all. But now that Paul Jr. has a son, there are more parties involved. Will the Teutul’s chopper businesses continue to survive and even grow, or will their complicated relationship pose a threat to their shops?
