Daytona Beach Bike Week International Motorcycle Shows

Next Friday, one of the biggest motorcycle gatherings in the states begins – Daytona Beach Bike Week.

Each year, the event grows, attracting a wider audience and more attention from various celebrities within the industry. And for 2012, one of the main men in the Discovery Channel hit series American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior will be at Daytona – Paul Teutul Jr.

The owner of Paul Junior Designs will be at Daytona Beach Bike week during the concluding Progressive International Motorcycle Show’s Ultimate Builder Contest. During the contest, many of his famed custom motorcycles will be on display, such as the “Anti-Venom,” “Jared Allen,” “Black Widow,” “Gears of War” and “Build-Off Bike,” and he’ll also be debuting a new “much-kept secret project.”

Besides Paul Teutul Jr., a few cast members from American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior will also be at the IMS Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Contest, which will be held at the Ocean Center Daytona Beach March 14-17, 2012.

Paul Teutul Jr. says: “We are honored to be a part of the Daytona Beach Ultimate Builder Custom Bike United States Championship Show. In addition to showcasing a variety of our most popular custom bikes for fans, Paul Jr. Designs will be unveiling an all-new custom creation at the show.

“This show gives us a great opportunity to connect with our fans, by hosting autograph signings and even giving them an opportunity to be in the audience for filming of American Chopper and we’re looking forward to it.”

Kerry Graeber (Brand Director, Advanstar Communications) says: “With the 12-city 2011-2012 Progressive International Motorcycle Shows coming to a very successful close here in Daytona Beach, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the Tour than by hosting the ultimate builder of custom bikes, Paul Teutul, Jr., at our show. His latest custom creation is sure to thrill fans and we’re honored to be a part of it.

“In addition to Paul and his cast bringing excitement to the show, we’ve got a full four days of excitement planned with the highly anticipated awards ceremony for the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike United States Championship and finale performances from the Smage Bros Stunt Show.”

Attendees to the show on Saturday, March 17, 2012, will have the unique experience to be present during live filming on an episode of American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior, set to air the following week, on March 26 at 9 p.m. EDT, on the Discovery Channel.
