Paul Teutul Senior is always willing to teach, especially the younger generation of motorcycle builders.
To further the education of young builders, Teutul, the star of Discovery Channel’s American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior, has recently announced that his shop, Orange County Choppers, has partnered with the WyoTech school.
And part of the agreement, students from WyoTech will assist Teutul and the OCC crew with a WyoTech-branded chopper. The build will be featured on an episode of American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior this fall.
In addition, WyoTech, “The Official Technical School of OCC” has also arranged for students to intern at the world-renowned bike building facility in Upstate New York.
WyoTech says the students will be involved in every stage of the build, from design and creation to fabrication and assembly. Students will be selected from all WyoTech campuses, including the Daytona and Fremont campuses where motorcycle mechanic training is offered.
Paul Teutul Senior (OCC CEO & Founder) says: “The partnership makes perfect sense. We chose WyoTech because they are the best of the best and their students are the most highly trained in the industry. I can’t wait to kick this project off and see the creativity that the students bring to this unique build.”
Steve Whitson (Regional Vice President at WyoTech) says: “WyoTech is proud to be associated with Orange County Choppers. As the premiere custom motorcycle design shop, OCC has a long history of excellence in workmanship – a trait we strive to instill in our students.”
