I see that the Discovery Channel has been airing old "American Chopper" episodes again. I guess it's a way to promote that "junior vs. senior" series which I haven't seen yet. I loved the older episodes of "American Chopper" but it starting wearing thin when they got all famous and starting appearing in Super Bowl commercials and on Leno.

Personally I think Jr.is building better bikes with less than what OCC is churning out.

Funny you should bring that up. I started an American Chopper thread awhile back in the tv section but there were no replies.

Nice to see I'm not the only one watching. Actually I started watching again when they moved back to the Discovery Channel and started the whole Junior vs. Senior thing.

I agree Juniors bikes are better. He was the creative genius behind OCC's bikes. I also like JR's building, it reminds me of the old OCC building before the big move. The bikes Sr. has been churning out have been less than impressive. It's also nice to see Vinny back.

I read on imdb that Sr's dog Gus died. I actually felt bad for Sr. when he broke down crying talking about his dog having to have his leg amputated.

I have no idea why I didn't look in TV and Movie first. Merged the threads.

The Blackhawks bike is a total POS compared to what OCC used to churn out. It could have been so much more. I think the Hawks were expecting Jr to still be there. Notice the coach Joel Quinville asked where Jr. was?

That bike looked like a stock bike with a few custom parts. OCC's stuff looks too pre assembled. Jr's is all hand crafted. I am thinking I can get a J&P Cycles catalog or just go to there warehouse and build abetter bike than what OCC is putting out.

As far as Sr. Dog Gus, It sucks that Gus had died.

Liked the old ones. Mostly the speak-fighting between Mike and Sr. Paul. I really LOL'd when he said something like: "Mike, If you put this sh*t again there, I will kick your ass." laugh.gif biggrin.gif

The old ones were great because it was about building bikes and not about Drama. Drama is fine and all but spend 2 episodes on the bikes again.

I found the unedited argument between JR. and Sr. where JR. was fired. Warning this contains strong language.

The irony is that the fued has increased interest in the show again. I hadn't watched the show since Vinnie left but when they started doing the Jr. vs. Sr. thing it peaked my interest.

I have to wonder though how much longer Sr. will be participating as he's coming off really bad. It's got to be costing him a fortune maintaining that huge building and paying all those employees which is probably why he's agreed to do the whole Jr. vs. Sr. thing.

I think Sr would rather bury they company that Pay Jr his 20%

I'd like to see Rick defect tp PJD. But I'm willing to bet her has a no compete clause in his contract.

Damn I missed that episode. Is FARO the client that went from OCC to PJD?

Yea. They wanted a bike built a few years ago, but the economy went to shit. Then they went with Jr, because they liked his style of building.

Sr. Was pissed.
