These days, Paul Teutul Jr, helped by his girlfriend Rachel, is mostly working out of his house, launching his new business JR Designs. Yes, he is still making appearances on American Chopper, but mostly is trying to transition to industrial design with Coleman Stoves as 1st client of his new venture. I belong to the category of people who think that if you can design complex machines like custom motorcycles you can successfully design many other products. You have or you don’t have a knack at design, period. So, I think that Paul Jr. is making the right move and may be successful, especially after being introduced to a vast corporate world via his TV reality show.
As far as the OCC show, I guess that it is the last season. Not only it was getting old (would like to see the audience numbers), but if you remove the discord between father & son, the testosterone pumping fights and the antics and grimaces of Mikey, any camera and spectator will be bored by the spectacle of a motorcycle being assembled. No drama = no audience. Did Paul Sr. made a marketing and financial mistake by building his huge Mac Headquarter and by investing in a line of OCC production bikes? I always thought so. It was quite a ride for the Teutul family. They made millions for themselves and are set for life. Congratulations. But the last curtain is going to fall. The show is over. Back to real life.
