Tune-Up Your Engines, American Chopper Returns August 4th

By: Discovery

Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. are back to conquer unfinished business in this brand-new 2-hour AMERICAN CHOPPER special, airing Tuesday, August 4 at 9 9P ET/PT on Discovery.

May 29, 2020

The infamous father-son duo have been on a wild ride, and now, they return to the garage where it all started, in hopes of building a custom bike together for the first time in over a decade. After spending years trying to rebuild their fractured relationship, the two world-class motorcycle builders find out that the original Orange County Choppers building is going to be torn down.

The two motorcycle legends revisit the shop to pick out a few mementos and reminisce about the past. Before long, Paul Jr. is overcome by the history of the building and presents an opportunity to his dad — build a bike together for the first time in years. Paul Sr. agrees to the build and the two set out to work on a custom chopper for one of the largest distributors of exterior and interior building products.

Creating a one-of-a-kind chopper doesn’t come without complications. The father-son duo have their own unique bike styles and when Paul Jr. pushes for more creative input, the entire build is thrown into jeopardy. Will the build prove to be too much for the already fragile father-son relationship? Or will the Teutul’s finally be able to leave the past behind them and use the build as the starting point for a new chapter?

In addition to watching the special on Discovery, viewers can check out past episodes of AMERICAN CHOPPER on the Discovery GO app. Plus viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #AmericanChopper and follow AMERICAN CHOPPER on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
