Who is Paul Teutul Jr.?

Born Paul Michael Teutul Jr. on the 2nd October 1974, in Orange County, New York USA, he is primarily a motorcycle manufacturer – the owner of the Paul Jr. Designs motorcycle manufacturing company – but is probably best known to the world for his appearances in the reality TV series “American Chopper: The Series” (2002-2010), and its spin-off “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior” (2010-2012).

Early Life and Education

The oldest child born to Paul Teutul and his first wife Paula, he grew up in Orange County with his brothers Michael and Daniel, and sister Cristin. His father, Paul Sr. is one of the most prominent motorcycle manufacturers who in 1999 started the Orange County Choppers, but even before that had his own fabrication firm, called Orange County Ironworks. Unfortunately, there is no information about Paul’s education, however, inspired by his father’s work, Paul joined the family business, and ever since has been into motorcycle design and manufacturing.

Career Beginnings

Once his father started the Orange County Choppers, Paul became one of those responsibile for the company’s growth, and thanks to his knowledge and passion for bikes, he has done a great job. Gradually the business improved, which attracted attention from the producers of Discovery Channel programs, and in 2003 they became the subjects of the reality TV series “American Chopper: The Series”.

“American Chopper: The Series”

The show follows the Teutul family business operations at their Orange County Choppers; as the show progressed, Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. got into disagreements which would become a hallmark of the show. Their arguments became quite fierce over the years, which eventually led to a falling out between father and son. Regardless, the show aired on Discovery Channel until 2007, but then moved to TLC and continued until 2012. However, Paul Jr. appeared in 58 episodes before leaving the shop and series in 2008, returning for a brief time in 2009 and 2010, but the strained relationship between him and Paul Sr. remained.

Paul Jr. Designs

After Paul Jr. left OCC, he started his own motorcycle manufacturing company, Paul Jr. Designs, and begand building his own bikes, as well as making adjustments to old ones, such as P-51 Mustang, GEICO Armed Forces and “Black Widow” Bikes, along with other projects. Thanks to his own success, Paul managed to attract several employees from his father’s company, including his brother Michael, Vinnie Di Martino, then Robert “Nub” Collard and Joe Puliafico. The ultimate result was the new reality TV series – “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior” – which aired on the Discovery Channel from 2010 to 2012, which further increased his net worth and popularity as well. In 2014, he was joined by the last of the employees from his father’s company, Cody Connelly. Paul’s net worth and popularity further increased when his company was chosen to build two bikes for Azeroth bikes for Blizzard Entertainment’s World of Warcraft, which appeared in the game in 2014. Two years later, Paul was hired to create two bikes for the film “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows”.


Back in 2005, Paul Sr., Paul Jr. and Michael Teutul faced a lawsuit for fraudulent transfer, filed by Tom Derbyshire who was Paul Sr’s. business partner, and financed the creation of “American Chopper: The Series”. Tom was to be included in the show and receive profits, but Paul Sr. found a way to exclude him from the deal, hence the lawsuit, which eventually put Paul Sr. out of the business and forced him into bankruptcy, while Orange County LLC had to pay out $500,000 to Tom.
