The Teutel family, particularly Paul and Paul Jr., are most known for being the famous father and son team of Orange County Choppers. At least until their huge egos clashed.

A few years ago, Senior and Junior had a pretty serious falling out that resulted in the former firing the latter from Orange County Choppers. In turn, Junior set up his own company, the aptly named ’Paul Junior Designs’, to go head-to-head with his father.

The acrimony between the two was the perfect opportunity for Cadillac to put one against the other in a custom bike building contest for charity. With the opportunity to build a bike based on the Cadillac CTS-V, Senior and the rest of the boys at OCC decided to go old-school with their approach, clearly emphasizing power over style with a powerful V-twin engine that was given some extra doses of power courtesy of a shot of nitrous.

Design-wise, Senior’s take a lot tamer than that of Junior’s, which might probably be the reason why fans of the show have given an overwhelming stamp of approval to Junior’s work - 96% to 4% really isn’t much of a contest, to be honest - compared to that of Senior’s.

Despite the contentious relationship between the two, both Senior and Junior participated in the competition because the two bikes will eventually be auctioned off to benefit the Cure Duchenne charity.

Bids are now being taken for both bikes and, as expected, Paul Junior’s bike has been racking up bids compared to the dryness of bidders for Paul the Elder’s bike.

Hahaha! Me too. Especially whenever Senior suddenly flares up for nothing. Only Junior was able to talk him out of it and calm him down.

Hmm, I am really starting to miss Paul Jr. at OCC. I am really a big fan of the series and I really like it whenever he and Senior go head to head with each other.

Well, it is really hard to choose between the two bikes, but I would probably go with Senior’s design. It might not be as badass as Junior’s, but it still looks awesome.

Wow, OCC getting their own chopper tribute, well now that would be interesting. But I think there is something missing on this one. Maybe if they would add a mustache, then it would really match Paul Senior smiley
