OCC
« on: May 30, 2011, 09:30:33 pm »
Interesting show tonight. There is a head-to-head between Jr. and Sr. with both building a Cadillac bike. I hope Jr. kicks Sr.s butt. So far the bike looks sharp. Sr. is always saying the Jr. can't design worth a damn, and then tonight he was saying how Jason is a real designer, not Jr., yet OCC became popular 2 years before Jason joined the team.

Sorry T,
I won't waste my satilite time on that show. Don't care for the bikes, the people or the concept. And when they burned a Connie for fun, well that sealed the deal.
Garbage, I'd rather watch re-runs of Oprah.
Ride safe all.

SISF needs to do his own OCC.

Orlando Custom Connies!  I don't think he's near Orlando, though...

I'd watch that show!  Plus, he could throw in his Voyager work for variety...  Imagine the drama that would ensue with Steve versus the Voyager guys!

I used to have some respect for Sr., I have been pretty heavy into lifting and always gave the guy some kudos, but the way he acts towards his son, alway taking cheap shots rather than let the bikes speak for themselves.  He's a dick!  Also, he may have run the business but he couldn't have done it without JR!  I think it's funny how when he turns a wrench they make it out to be such a bid deal.  I hope JR kicks his azz in business!  For a father to turn on his son and act the way he does is inexcusable. PAUL SR's favorite letter "I"! what a douche!---I am also curious to if he is sick, he looks horrible in the last 6 months.

Can't. Stand. This. Crap!

I wouldn't let either one of them within a mile of any bike I owned.

They "create" (there are designers/builders in the background who never get any credit) unrideable customs for people who have more money than brains. It's all scripted and horribly fake.

Dope opera is correct.

That's cool, even though I wasn't asking for who liked the show. This thread is more for those that actually have an interest in the show.

I enjoy seeing what they build even if they are expensive and not any good for just getting out and riding.  I think of the bikes that they build as pieces of art that are very neat to observe and listen to.  But as far as the soap opera portion of the show goes, I could do without that.  If their beef is real, I hope that the two of them can grow up and get past their problems, not for the business but because a father and son should not act like that.

how can anyone say that their beef isn't real? it's pretty damnd expensive hiring legal teams to sue each other and having it go all the way to the state supreme court all the while having your series cancelled and the economy tank.

i watched the build-off and jr's bike screams cadillac while the other says...? i like how they took parts off of the car and put them on the bike and i really like that exhaust they've done. i wonder how they are going to judge the bikes? if caddy says bike a is sr's and bike b is jr's, i am betting jr wins because a lot of people around the country who watch the show are pretty disappointed (to put it mildly) with sr's behavior. if there is a vote and no one knows who built which, well then, it looks like jr's bike wins again. but something's telling me that it's going to be a 'draw'.

personally, while jr > jason in design and concept, neither sr nor jr would be able to do squat without rick (sr) or vinnie (jr). those two are the ones who make it all happen.
Please use this forum to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated.

Reality TV has consumed the lion's share of today's programming... I think thats sad.  However, in it's day, OCC was an entertaining show and helped create, well, an empire.
I lost all interest when 'the Pauls' got into this pissy kitty fight. The nasty fighting ahs taken it's toll on the show, the business, and obviously Sr's health.
It's too bad- I thought some of the bikes they put together (and I say put together because I think THAT is what they were really good at) were well thought out, definitely unique, despite being less 'functional' and over priced.
This Cadillac project / competition might just get some ex-viewers to return and check it out.

I don't like OCC, but it's a hell of lot better than Oprah re-runs :battle:

I used to watch it some years ago a fair amount.  Only seen a little of the new series,  haven't cared to see more since the show is more about the rivalry than building bikes these days.

I got a dish BECAUSE of OCC. My buddy used to rag on me that I should see this, I should see that on OCC. I always found it interesting how they had TONS and TONS of fab stuff and see them going at a fender with a 4.5" grinder and a cutting disk. Well I still have the dish, but OCC's novelty wore off rather fast.....
