Paul Teutul Jr. Autographs at NYC IMS

American Chopper

Visitors at the New York City International Motorcycle Show (IMS) will have a chance to get Paul Teutul Jr.’s autograph.

The star of Discovery Channel’s American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior, will be at IMS in the Geico Insurance booth at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Paul Jr. will also showcase one of his first custom choppers as Paul Jr. Designs, teh Anti-Venom. He has taken his ten years building custom motorcycles and building a world recognized brand and applying it to his new company, Paul Jr. Designs.

Paul Jr. will be available for questions and will also run a sneak preview of an upcoming episode of American Chopper in the MotoFlix display.

Although Paul Jr. has always been mechanically inclined, it wasn’t until he was 25 that he realized the depth of his creativity. In 1999, he created the now world-famous logo for Orange County Choppers, a custom motorcycle business he co-founded in upstate New York.

With his talent and eye for design, he went on to create some of the most recognizable theme choppers in the world, including the Black Widow Bike, the Fire Bike and the Jet Bike, as well as working with some of the top companies in the world such as Intel, NASA and Gillette.

After ten years in the steel business and ten years building custom motorcycles and a brand through OCC, he is taking all he has learned and applying it to his new company, Paul Jr. Designs. Brand loyalty is a key part to this new venture as well as partnering with the right companies.

Shortly after opening it’s doors, Paul Jr. Designs caught the attention of it’s first major client, The Coleman Company. Paul Jr. Designs was hired to redesign the 10-Year Anniversary model of their popular Roadtrip Grill and signed a contract to review and improve across their entire product line.

Paul Teutul Jr. says: "I’ve never felt so inspired. Paul Jr. Designs gives me an opportunity to take my creativity to a whole new level. This new company will be the most challenging, but by far the most rewarding."
