Here's my two cents. Although I do think that parts of the show are scripted (you have to know some of the things in advance), for the most part, it's not. The film crew usually gets to a location about a half hour before they arrive. Then they have to act like it's a surprise visit. Well it might have been a half hour before. But some is not.
- The laws suits are real!
-Paul Jr. built some pretty nice bikes long before Vinnie and Rick showed up. He does just fine. But does rely more on the help. ( I guess it comes with business and the shows demands.
- Sr. use to be a nice guy and friendly. But since he got the attitude that he is totally responsible for OCC success, he has become a less likable person. He has alienated all three of his sons, Jr., Danny and Mike, and from what I hear, his daughter, Cristin, as well. Although I do think he's been reaching out to them all trying to make amens.
-Vinnie and Cody still run V force customs right around the corner form PJD.
-Mike does have a art studio in Montgomery.

I know quite a bit more than the average bear because I live right down the road from all this action. And see and talk to these people now and then! Since they are kind of my neighbors!

 On the cadillac bike bikes -

JR is kicking Sr's ass on this build. Remember that the caddy is GM's forefront tech car. Jr's bike has USD forks, air ride soft tail that drops the bike onto the exhaust manifold to take the place of the kickstand, and the rear fender IS artwork. Sr's bike is nothing but a stretched hardtail with nitrous. He went after the power part of the caddy, but left all the suspension, brakes and technology out. JR is going to be the BIG winner of this one, unless Sr is actually building a whole nother bike off camera, cus the one he's building now is just more of the same. Steve

They are having a split up  gee who put the bugs in everyones butt. Seems if somethings going good, some body's gotta mess it up.   Sounds all to familiar

 Actually when this started two years ago. Jr. was appearing on the show doing stupid  stuff, just to appear. That was because he had to under threat of breech of contract. The law suit was going on when Jr. spent little time on the show. The law suit was going on when their was no show (it was cancelled). And it continues.
 The thing that made this show take off in the first place is that it's a real (you could say dysfunctional) family at it's best and worst. Like I said, yes somethings are always going to be planned out and scripted on any and every show to some extent. But do you really think that everybody would miss their oldest son's first wedding just for ratings on a TV show? Because Sr. was not there!
 You don't have to like the people on the show. You don't have to like or ride the style bikes they design and craft on the show. But to say it isn't real isn't right either.
 But to be totally fair. Some of the show has to be scripted somewhat. They have to know some of the things that will happen before hand. But they have no way of knowing how things will turn out or how they will look after the hours of footage is edited to make an interesting show. But the shows real no holds barred platform is what has always made it interesting for a lot of viewers. I personally haven't liked a lot of the bikes Sr. and his crew have turned out. But I appreciate what it takes to make them. Even if I don't plan on owning or riding one. But if I was, I would definetly go with one of Jr.'s designs. They just appeal to me much better. But I probably would still never spend the money on one of his either!

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.

Who says the lawsuit hasn't been scripted?
It's part of the show and they are being paid to use it in the show.

Reality TV shows aren't.

I just think the digs he (Paul Sr.) throws at his kids are so uncalled for and show what a real DOUCHE BAG he is. example: when they went to Alaska on the crab boat, as soon as he got off he had to say "Junior and Mikey wouldn't have had the balls to do this", give me a break what an AZZCLOWN!  Go tell everyone how great you are Senior ya DICK!

Ah, he was only saying what was in the script. It's called "product placement". Sr was on one show to promote another.

Script or not, they ARE his biological children aren't they? -or is that 'scripted' too?  Talk sh1t about your own children, 'throwing them under the bus' for what? Just to bolster some ratings... yea, Sr. IS a total douche.

And Jr's participation in the whole thing makes him Sr's equal.

You have to admit though that they make some killer machines!! My god have you seen the crap that they put on those bikes? If you wrecked you would get skewered, stabbed, punctured, sliced, diced, cut, smashed, crushed, harpooned, macerated, burned.....etc. My first time watching this show was during the first days of the Iraq War. They had an  American Chopper marathon and I thought "lets watch and see how they build choppers". Shortly into viewing the show all he!! broke out between sr. and jr. and I thought WTH. But initially I was hooked and watched regularly in the early days. But every bike build had the same sequence of events. An idea, some sheet metal work, factory frame, motor and drive train, jr. is late and lazy, deadline, someone else does the painting, chroming, bike comes together and sr. says " I knew Pauly could pull it off". Got boring real fast.
And now it seems a little more interesting again and Pauly's bikes do have the edge if you are into art on 2 wheels with little attention to technology and performance.
