Paul Teutel and Paul Teutel Jr. are household names in the world of bikers both local and foreign. As the men behind the popular American Chopper TV series, the two Pauls have become famous for their custom-tuned bikes, racking up a list of high-profile clients that include musicians, actors, and professional athletes.
And while Paul the Younger is no longer part of the Orange County Choppers team, father and son will forever be linked together, which leads us to this pretty unique build-off involving the two protagonists - or antagonists, depending on which side of the fence you’re on.
In collaboration with Cadillac, Paul the Older and Paul the Younger each were given free reign to design and build their own Cadillac CTS-V-inspired custom bike.
In the case of Paul Junior, his interpretation translated to a lowered piece of monstrosity with a metallic black finish and the prevalent use of chrome accents to go with the unique, albeit imposing modern-day look. According to Junior, he wanted to design the rear end of the book to bear striking similarities to the rear of the car, even using the taillights from the CTS-V by incorporating them into his work’s fender.
The two bikes will eventually be auctioned off to benefit the Cure Duchenne charity. Seeing as the egos in the Teutel family never seem to run dry, a Discovery Channel ran a poll to see which bike the public liked more. To no one’s surprise, Junior blew Pops out of the water, holding a staggering 96% - 4% edge in fan approval.
Either way, both bikes can be had for the highest bidder. Just head over to the link and post your price. Best be warned, though, the bids for Junior’s bike are going straight through the roof.
