autoevolution Users See Paul Teutul Jr. Bound for Success
While we were expecting a tight race between father and son, the poll results were crystal clear: with no less than 89% of the votes, one could say that Paul Jr. scored a decisive win against his father and former employer.
Our readers seem to be sure that Paulie was the mastermind behind the OCC designs, so Teutul Sr. might as well retire. The two bikes that marked Paulie’s solo debut have been previewed in late August at the 70th anniversary of the Sturgis Rally, and have already caught the attention of custom chopper fans.
"I've never felt so inspired. Paul Jr. Designs gives me an opportunity to take my creativity to a whole new level. This new company will be the most challenging, but by far the most rewarding," Paulie says on his new company’s website.
Poll fans have again the chance to express their opinion by checking out the usual special dedicated section on our homepage. You can find it on the left side, after a bit of scrolling down. The star of the latest debate is British sports and racing cars maker Lotus, who revealed its entire 2014 model line-up at the recent Paris Auto Show. We were there to catch them on film, so make sure you check them out before you submit your choice.

Bottom line-- paul sr. is a miserable old fart and the majority of the guys at o.c.c. are a bunch of A$$ lickers especially paul sr. so called new family, they can all eat $hit and die..
ME AND MY FAMLIE WATCH ALL OF YOUR SHOWS ON OCC,
AND WE FEEL THAT YES YOU ARE THE MASTERMIND BEHIND DESINGS OF THE BIKES.AND WE WILL FOLLOW YOU AND WATCH YOU AND GROW TO STARDOM FAR GRATER THEN YOUR FATHER COULD EVER IMGANE, WE KNOW PAULIE LOVES HIS DAD, BUT HES NOT BEING FARE WITE YOU HOW CAN A FATHER THREET HIS SON THIS WAY?YOU GO PAULIE$$$$$$$$$
well i think JR will succeed but i think his anti venom bike looks too similar to the spider bike, i think paul jr is a very talended and artistic guy so i think he will eventually be at the top and maybe bigger than O.C.C . i also think that its very skrewd up what S.R did but really deep inside they both care for each other, i relly hope J.R's company becomes bigger and more successful than O.C.C..
Paul Sr has been turning out real childish bike designs lately because he has been letting that big buff head man child design his bikes.
Paul Sr talks about how his employees are his family and he treats his family like shit so watch out
Everyone is behind you. Great to see Vinnie and Mikey on board.Get Ricker and you hold all the aces!! Go for it.
with his butt kissing family.
Sr.'s response to stress is anger, and he lashes out, every single time. Who knows what the cause is, and who cares. The end result will likely be his own self destruction. Take a look around Paul Sr., because there are thousands of examples of your behavior, from people who deal with stress the same way you do. It does not lead to happiness at the end of the day. Wake up before its too late. A friend of mine's father was much like Paul Sr., high blood pressure and all. He had a stroke, and was left nearly completely debilitated, and was forced to rely on his kids for EVERYTHING. The very kids and wife he abused, and alienated most of their life, had to care for him every hour of every day. It was a terribly sad situation. In a strange way, it brought them all closer together, and sadly he now knows how many good days he cheated his family of, but can't fix it. I hope Paul Sr. doesn't expect the brown nose few he surrounds himself with at his shop to have his back like his family would when the chips are really down. Those little a-holes like that brown nose fool Pohl would be gone faster than his cash.
Paul Jr. needs to put aside his ego, and call his old man. He may be a talented builder, and have the world by the tail, but he still owes his Dad. Some of his better traits, as well as his bad ones were learned from his father. Its up to him to acknowledge both, and accept that he can break the chain of behavior. In fact, not only is his own relationship with his dad on the line, but perhaps his brothers as well. Suck it up, Buttercup! It's time to prove you have a set, pick up the phone, and patch it up with you father. (If he can get over himself.) If you don't try, you will regret it.
Not only has Jr been the sole designer of these leagendary bikes. Jr has also become the business man who Sr needs to fear. Occ has become the disfunctional child and Jr has become a force.
Good luck Jr. We are all behind you. Show "dad" that kids do it better!!!!!!!!
I pray that some day sooner then later you two can bury the hatchet as after all with out family what do you really have? Jar were would you really be if it had not been for your father and Sir were would you be if it had not been for your sons skills? Think about it but not to long as time is one thing you never get back in life!
Oh here's a novel thought: MAYBE THEY'RE ONE AND THE SAME!!
Jumping to conclusions and spouting venomous comments sort of puts you in the same box your so eager to stomp on.
I think Sr. should be very proud of Jr. for the way he has started his own business and is learning just exactly what he had told him all along about how important it is to make deadlines and be on time. Paulie is now seeing what Senior was talking about.
I also think Paulie needs to step back and realize that he , more than likely, would never have had the opportunity to design bikes the way he got to if it hadn't been for his father and that his dad is RIGHT ON TARGET when he expects any employee and especially his son to come to work on time and work.
You should be very proud of each other and STOP the fighting.
Paulie, if something should happen to your father, and I sure hope it dose not, YOU will feel guilty for the rest of your life. I am not saying you should kiss his ass, but you only have One father and you never know when your number is going to be called. I would call him and just tell him that you see what he was talking about when it comes to business and see where it goes from there. You know as well as I do that ,even with all of his faults' and we all have them, he LOVES all his kids very much and would do anything for them.
Sr. is an old banger that thinks that people still love those old style bikes that he wants. But as you see, not to many people order them. Jesse James thought that to ,to bad you couldent see over the handle bars.
