Meet Paul Teutul, Sr.

Orange County Choppers

Thanks to Discovery Channel’s hit reality series “American Chopper” and the CMT series “Orange County Choppers,” there are few people who wouldn’t recognize Paul Teutul, Sr. The television series brought the massive, mustachioed father and his custom bike shop, Orange County Choppers, into practically every living room in America. Teutul started OCC in 1999 as a sideline to his steel manufacturing business, but his success building custom motorcycles soon took him from hobbyist to international motorcycle royalty. Teutul was a contestant on season 12 of NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice” and has appeared on “My Name Is Earl,” “Miami Ink,” “King of the Hill,” “Wild Hogs” and “Celebrity Family Feud” among others.
