The show, previously broadcast by TLC network, is now on the Discovery Channel beginning December 6, 2010. These all-new action packed episodes featuring the fierce rivalry between father and son will also include the best in custom choppers built by Paul Jr. Designs.
“The Avon team is really excited to work with Paul Jr. Designs on this season’s American Chopper,” said Sukoshi Fahey, Sales & Marketing Manager, Avon Motorcycle Tyres North America. “Paul Jr. is exceptionally well known, even outside the motorcycle world, and we are all looking forward to seeing the amazing custom choppers that he and his team create.”
Paul Jr. started in 1999 when he created the well-known logo for Orange County Choppers, a custom motorcycle business he co-founded in New York.
He went on to create some of the most recognizable theme choppers in the world, including the Black Widow Bike, the Fire Bike and the Jet Bike. He has also worked with some of the top companies in the world such as Intel, NASA and Gillette.
After he left Orange County Choppers, Paul Jr. presented his first two creations at the 70th anniversary of the Sturgis Rally back in August, and is now rumored to work on two new builds, which are expected to be presented in this season’s American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior. Well, at least now we know one thing about the bikes: they will certainly use Avon tires.
