American Chopper profiles the lives of New York natives Paul Teutul Sr. and son Paul Jr. of Orange County Choppers (OCC), creators of the world's most outrageous custom motorcycles. Follow the day-to-day drama of this volatile father and son team as they battle impossible deadlines and each other to push the envelope of motorcycle design and fabrication. Liberty Bike 1 When a wealthy historian asks the guys to incorporate original copper fixtures from the Statue of Liberty into a custom chopper, Paulie gets stars (and stripes) in his eyes. Innovative touches like a right-side drive line and a torch-shaped carburettor prove worthy but time-consuming additions. And when it becomes clear that the boys are behind schedule yet again, Senior's cries of, "Give me liberty, or give me Paulie's head!" nearly spark an Orange County revolution. Liberty Bike 2 In the midst of the uphill battle to finish the Liberty Bike, Paul Sr. proposes a little downhill adventure: a spontaneous snow-tubing trip. Back at the shop, the pressure mounts when Paulie realises the bike's exhaust doesn't fit and the rear fender needs to be redone. But after everything is refitted and the bike comes back from the copper-plater gleaming like the world's baddest penny, the guys know they have an American classic on their hands. Miller Electric Bike Part 1 The boys visit Miller Electric, leading makers of welding equipment, to spark some inspiration for their latest chopper. While Vinnie gets a charge out of Paulie's design ideas for the bike a welder's mask incorporated into the gas tank and a serpentine set of exhaust pipes Big Paul sizzles over the pure mess in the shop. And when Vinnie's wife goes into labour, forcing him to leave work, Paulie is left to face Senior's meltdown all by himself. Miller Electric Bike Part 2 Paulie and the boys hit the hardwood for a game of hoops against the guys from OCC Ironworks in what can only be described as a comedy of errors. But back in the shop, it's all business: Big Paul blows up at Vinnie for leaving the shop in disarray and nearly sends him home for the day. However, once Senior gets a look at the Miller Bike's patriotic paint job and the outrageous tow-behind welder, all is forgiven. Dixie Chopper 1 When the gang visits the Dixie Chopper Company makers of fast, powerful lawn mowers Paulie comes away with some cutting-edge ideas for OCC's latest bike. Spinning mower blades incorporated into the wheels and a real, chromed-out mower engine really set the bike off. But when the custom carburettor doesn't fit, Orange County's mower-inspired masterpiece nearly turns to mulch. Dixie Chopper 2 With business booming at OCC, Senior splurges for an expansion to the cramped garage ... and a custom Harley for son Paulie. Back in the shop, the crew hustle to get the Dixie Bike ready for its Daytona debut. But with the clock ticking and the realisation that the rear fender is hopelessly bent, the guys are going to have to come up with a creative solution to get this grass-kicking hog to the show on time.
