Paul Jr. Designs: IMS Display & Autograph

NYC IMS Video

Hundreds of Paul Jr. Designs fans lined up at the New York City International Motorcycle Show on Saturday to get Paul Teutul Jr.’s autograph, the owner of the famed custom bike shop from upstate New York. This YouTube video highlights Paul Junior at the NYC IMS.

Besides pleasing the crowd himself, Paul Teutul Jr., the star of Discovery Channel’s American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior, brought along some of his crew and his first custom chopper, the Anti-Venom.

Also on display was the custom chopper Paul Teutul Jr. built for GEICO Insurance. His bikes were on display at the GEICO Exhibit at the NYC IMS show on Saturday.

But there was even more for American Chopper fans. At the MotoFlix display, fans got a preview of a 2011 episode of American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior; Paul Sr. is now the sole owner of Orange County Choppers.

In 1999, Paul Junior 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, the custom chopper shop 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.
