they don't do any work themselves. the family is a steriod freak, a drug addict, and someone who thinks his **** don't stink.

now take Indian Larry (RIP) he was a bike builder.

welding a snap-on wrench to the snap-on bike or a missle onto the airforce bike doesn't constitue 'building'...

I'll give Paul jr credit for maybe one thing----- spider webs Hey lets do another spider theme with the webs Yeah Great idea but this time it will be a different color that we will send off to have powder coated by someone else and then grind off alot of the powdercoat to make it go back together

you see the work Paul Cox does? you think he would put little missles on a motorcycle like Paulie would.

Vinnie's work if i am not mistaken:
http://www.vforcecustoms.com/index....id=29&Itemid=49

now to the present: so Paulie starts his own bike shop because his design company failed. he talked Vinny into joining him. VINNIE, IF YOU READ THIS: paulie, the little lazy turd will F you over. I think pauile will try to steel Jason(design) from OCC and also Jim (cnc)

oh man, I laughed everytime they screwed that up. I think every single one of their builds presented difficulties on final assembly because of the powder coating.

They never did mention V-Force. I wonder what Vinny is doing with his custom motorcycle business while he is working for Paul Jr.? Where is Cody?

Because that would have involved forethought and maybe a little math, which I never saw any of either on the show.

A good fabricator builds his item 10 times in his head before he ever cuts the first piece of material. He anticipates things such as paint, powder coating and plating. If he does make a misjudgement, you can bet he wont make the same mistake twice.

These guys were NEVER fabricators, just a bunch of A$$clowns that bolted parts together. Like I said in an earlier post-I saw one of their run of the mill bikes up close and personal. I would have been ashamed to have had my name on it.

powder coating: wouldn't you put a bolt in all the threaded holes, put an old bearing in so powder coating does not mess anything up and pop out bearings afterwards, etc.?

This is really strange. We are seeing a huge amount of bad mouthing a guy and his family who achieved an American dream.

He spent many years building a very successful business with ample growth, brought his sons into it, and stared in a major cable TV show with his business and with a very large following.

Hard to understand.

I dont what American Chopper you all watched, but i have seen them fabricate a lot stuff from flat sheet metal,gas tanks,oil tanks,fenders,seats,even built some frames and handlebars also. These are custom bikes with money as no object,sure the other bikes they build for regular get a lot of prefabed parts to lower cost.

Where one dream came, another dream left. The Teutul family is now left in pieces, and although monetary/business success is up, family success has gone out the window. Sure Paul, Jr. is a punk, but I wonder how much of that is due to a failure in parenting. ALL THREE of the Teutul sons are now on bad terms with their father. The American dream is not about gaining riches at the expense of losing your kids' respect.

Have to love the internet experts! Most of you should stick to trying to figure out how to program a gyro before you bash others.

my guess is that they're doing quite well. It's all show business. They may all be douchebags, but in the end, I'd bet that they get along OK.

without the discovery channel these 3 bozos would be what they still are. garbage.

at least sr. built a successful fabrication business.

my gyro is fine, may i bash ?

i read that a worker died on the buiding leased to or owned by jr.

i can't find any custom rocket ship - buck rogers - dr. who motorcycles by junior. all i see is a colemen grill, and T-shirts worn my fat slob MIkey saying "Mikey is Back". and there is a rumor out there that Vinney was stealing customers from Senior.

off-topic

La Ink: that immature Kat Von doddle bug is garbage also. and those butt kissers who work for her. she f-ked Corey and i am glad Corey split.

if you put yourself out there like these people have, be prepared to be judged.

I think there is some jealous people here because paul is rich and they arent Paul Sr seemed to be very hard to get along with,his son brushed off a lot of his unwarrented behavour against him.His father had some pretty stupid arguments with him that were totally wrong on his part,but he is the boss even if hes wrong
now take Indian Larry (RIP) he was a bike builder.
Yea but a moron for riding without a helment and he paid for it. If he were still alive he probably would have voted for Obama

Hmm let's see...3 years formal education as a machinist, 12 years in the trade and weldor/fabricator also during that time. Built everything from precision vacuum molds to 110' reach 12 wheel drive Autocar bucket trucks. Repaired everything from Model A axles to a 12' bull gear for an elevator installed in 1893 that stripped 11 teeth.
Built and owned 9 Harleys along with a 68 Nova built from a pile of parts.
Gunsmith for over 20 years.
The last bike I built:
Daytec Softail frame lowered 2 inches and stretched 2 inches-STD generator cases custom machined for Evo top end and oiling system (Pan-Evo)-kick start only- Sputhe 5 speed in a 4 speed case-1.5" enclosed belt primary- hand laid fiberglass seat pan (seat height 18" from pavement- I laid and trimmed the foam and stitched the cover)- integral strut rear fender- sectioned fender for splash guard-LED taillight-Custom machined air cleaner out of 12" dia. billet- Internal wiring in bars and frame.
The only thing I did not personally do was assemble the engine.


Go and program your gyro- I'll do something that takes a craftsmans touch.......
