American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior Recap: Legal Battles Galore

Last night American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior aired its third episode on TLC. Paul Teutul Jr. and Paul Teutul Sr. headed to court to settle some ongoing legal battles. The battles in question have father Paul Teutul Sr. suing his son, Paul Teutul Jr. for shares of the Orange County Choppers company.

Evidently, Paul Teutul Sr. gifted his son some shares of Orange County Choppers before they had their little falling out. While Paul Jr. refuses to give up his shares of the company, I am sure that his new company Paul Jr. Designs will play an important role in the courtroom. While I am no lawyer, I am sure there has to be some legal ramification when you go into direct competition with a business you hold part ownership of.

Mikey Teutul reprises his role of the neutral faction in the ongoing Teutul family feud. Last night on American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior, Paul Sr. actually reached out to Mikey and invited him to dinner. While Mikey found it was a kind gesture, he ultimately declined. Mikey let his father know that he will not hang out with him until he makes amends with Paul Teutul Jr. This ultimatum by Mikey does nothing but send Paul Sr. into a fuming rage.

Okay, enough with drama, we are fans of American Chopper for the amazing bikes. If we want to watch a soap opera, we will tune into that god-awful show on MTV, Jersey Shore. Last night, Orange Country Choppers was hired to create a bike for the company, ESAB. ESAB is a world-renowned welding company that agreed to supply Paul Teutul Sr.’s shop with brand new welding equipment, in exchange for a custom Orange County Choppers bike.

The guys over at Orange County Choppers deliver an amazing custom bike that the reps of ESAB absolutely love. It is always nice to see that even though Paul Sr. is surrounded by drama with his family, he can still deliver quality, custom motorcycles.

Meanwhile, over at Paul Jr. Designs, Paul Teutul Jr. is struggling to get a client to order a custom bike. It seems that owning your own business and getting it off the ground is a little bit harder than he expected. To keep the morale at the shop high, Paul Jr. decides to build a custom bike for the shop. Paul Jr. immediately begins to sketch out his idea for Paul Jr. Designs’ first custom bike. Vinnie is a little skeptical when he sees that Paul Jr. wants to go with a webbed bike. Orange County Choppers has already produced the Black Widow bike as well as a webbed production bike.

While Paul Jr. takes Vinnie’s opinion into account, he ultimately decides to go with a web themed bike.

Tune in next week as American Chopper: Senior VS. Junior returns Thursday night at 9 PM (ET/PT) on TLC.

  1. “While I am no lawyer, I am sure there has to be some legal ramification when you go into direct competition with a business you hold part ownership of.” – Signed up and came here to tell you what a crazy statement this is. It’s generally accepted as a good business practice for companies (read Microsoft and Apple) to own shares of each other.

  2. @loki, Thank you for clearing that up. As I said I am no lawyer but it just seemed like it would be illegal. Now I know that it is not! Thank you for your insight on this matter.
