At this year’s Sturgis Rally, which celebrated its 70th anniversary, the photographers from Shooters Images got to capture these two custom motorcycles built by Paul Jr. Designs.
As many know, the owner of Paul Jr. Designs is Paul Teutul, son of Paul Sr. (owner of Orange County Choppers (OCC) in Newburgh, N.Y.). The two were involved in a six-season run of American Chopper on the Discovery Channel, but due to a vendetta that also involves a lawsuit between the father and son, Junior left the show.
But the duo returned two weeks ago for Senior Vs Junior American Chopper on TLC, a reality-show that exploits the two and their challenges while running separate businesses; “Senior” runs OCC, “Junior” runs Paul Jr. Designs.
These two bikes display what Paul Jr. has been working on since starting his own business that is run from a 7,200-sq. ft. building near OCC headquarters. As Junior continues to build custom bikes like these, Senior is trying to buy out his son’s 20-percent of Orange County Choppers.
Senior Vs. Junior airs on TLC at 9 p.m. on Thursdays, with the third episode occurring this week, Aug. 26.
