It was hilarious when Dad got his SUV stuck....son hooks up to it, "OK, I'm gonna go real slow".....NOT! Off with the bumper :D

The kid does some really nice work, without the Jesse James 'tude

HAHA that was great. I wasn't even into motorcycles into i saw the show.... Pauly Jr. does some incredable work. The amount of pressure that he's under is pretty nuts though. Everyone should watch this show!

I like this show too. Dad is a real hard ass but he built that business and knows what it takes to keep it successful. His son is a dork, he does nice work but what moron hoist not one but two bikes on a lift and have BOTH fall off!!!!! :disgust:

I would love to just ride one of those choppers just once.

I like the show too, but it seems like they create tension for the sake of being interesting. Last week the dad was flipping out over the phone, maybe it was editing but he was truely losing it. Then he tells his son " We gotta get someone to answer these phones, I'm going crazy here."

i really think the black widow and the bike they featured past two episodes are just amazing looking. his bikes are way better looking than what jesse james does from what i've seen on the discovery channel

yea, I remember seeing them when they were just doing specials on choppers in general. It does seem like there is unnatural tension, or the dad is just that impatient and crazy. I like his desgins, but the ghey neon on the black widow and the race car bikes have to go.

It is a pretty good show, but I do think Dad is playing up a bit to the cameras with his attitude.

I've only seen a couple episodes, but do they go back on forth between west coast choppers (?) w/ jessie james and the orange county choppers? I saw an episode a couple weeks back with J. James going to the bike show in floriday, and then in an episode I saw today, the orange county people were talking about an upcoming show in florida. Are both shows being filmed at the same time?

Just got done watching the FDNY bike show and damn that bike looked amazing.... before the show began I had no real interest in motocycles, but these guys have changed my mind completely.. American Choppers is a perfect blend of humor and design :)

I like the show cause it is cool to see what you can really make by hand but I think they are the ulgiest bikes EVER! an amazing amount of craftmanship but ugly bikes.
