I love American Chopper. I was wondering if you could tell me the address of Orange County Choppers so I could write to Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr.
—Connie T., Ohio
You can write to both father and son at: Orange County Choppers, 10 Factory St., Montgomery, N.Y. 12549, or via e-mail at [email protected]. For Paul Sr., 56, born in Yonkers, N.Y., the popular Discovery Channel show is just an extension of the steel fabricating business that he began in the early 1970s. The divorced father had his sons—Paul Jr. (Paulie), 30; Mikey, 26; and Danny, 28—working for him in the steel shop, previous to the bike building. Paul Jr. is chief designer and fabricator at OCC, Mikey answers phones and orders parts, and Danny is the general manager of Orange County Ironworks. (They have a sister, Kristin, who is studying to become a nurse.) "We like doing the show," says Paul Sr. of the show that captures the day-to-day drama of the Teutul family and their struggles to maintain their flourishing custom motorcycle shop, as well as their family relationships. "It's more work than you think it is and you really don't have any time to yourself, but we have a lot of fun doing it."
