American Chopper (2002 - 2012)

THEN: Designer and custom-bike builder Paul Teutul Jr. was just 27 when American Chopper: Jet Bike premiered on Discovery Channel, featuring Paulie and his father, Paul Sr., building a custom chopper for 2002's Laconia Bike Week. Part of Bike Weekend, the one-off special and the intrinsic family dynamics so captivated audiences, a full series order following the Teutuls and their business, Orange County Choppers, soon followed in 2003. Six years of family ups and downs ensued, culminating in 2009 with Senior firing Junior, who waited out his one-year non-compete clause before establishing his own business, Paul Jr. Designs, in 2010.

NOW: In terms of business, Paul Jr. Designs continues to thrive, producing custom bikes including Azeroth Choppers for Blizzard's World of Warcraft and the White Cap SKILSAW Bike, and he's currently building two bikes for a blockbuster feature film that will be released in summer 2016 (stay tuned!). There have been TV commercials and personal appearances since 2012 as well, but the most important development in Paul's life is the birth of his son Hudson Seven Teutul in February 2015 with wife Rachael.

And, yes, while he may not work with them anymore, Mikey, Senior and Vinnie are all in Junior's life, with a single photo of Senior holding a three-week-old Hudson garnering hundreds of thousands of likes on Facebook.
