Q Would like to know a little bit more about Rick Petko from American Chopper. We watch the show, but don't get to hear much about him.
—Wendy Rance, Northampton, England

Petko, 38, began working at Orange County Choppers, the custom-motorcycle shop in Montgomery, N.Y., featured in the TLC series American Chopper, in 2003. A lifelong gearhead, he says he's dabbled in motorcycles "ever since I could walk." For the entire story on the colorful characters of American Chopper, pick up the 2006 book Orange County Choppers: The Tale of The Teutuls, written in part by the show's father-son team of Paul Teutul and Paul Jr.
