Started out as a DocuSoap on the DiscoveryChannel about the Orange County Choppers bike shop, ran by Paul Teutul and his sons Paul Jr. and Mike. They built bikes; they argued. And at times, they just goofed off. Repeat ad nauseam, for many seasons.

* IdiotBall: Mikey totes this around a lot. In one episode, the crew goes to Paris. Mikey has a few hours to kill, so he decides to see [[TheDoors Jim Morrison's grave]]. Except he doesn't speak French and has absolutely no idea where it is, so he wanders the streets in basically random directions, hoping to trip over it.

Then, the unthinkable happened: Sr. fired his son from the company, which ultimately lead to the show's apparent {{Cancellation}}. But what seemed like the end of the saga, turned out to [[ItHasOnlyJustBegun the beginning]] of a sort-of new series, ''American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior''. This continuation had a similar formula, but this time, the arguments between father and son are SeriousBusiness. As in, [[JerkAss Paul Sr.]] did everything he could to put the workshop of his son, Paul Jr. Designs, out of business. Ran for four seasons in this format and then ended in a GrandFinale with [[spoiler: Sr. and Jr. working to repair their personal if not business relationship.]]

* BigBrotherInstinct: Paulie is quite protective of Mikey, especially when the extent of Mikey's addictions came to light at Mikey had to go into rehab. Paulie even set aside a corner of his new shop exclusively for Mikey's use and provided his younger brother with an array of ''very'' expensive art supplies so that Mikey could pursue his artistic ambitions while under Paulie's watchful eye. [[VitriolicBestBuds None of this stops Paulie from busting Mikey's balls, however]].

In November of 2013, ads began appearing for a new program, ''Orange County Choppers'' on a different network, featuring Paul Sr. At this point, expectations are for more or less a continuation of ''American Chopper''.

Then, the unthinkable happened: Sr. fired his son from the company, which ultimately lead to the show's apparent {{Cancellation}}. But what seemed like the end of the saga, turned out to [[ItHasOnlyJustBegun be just the beginning]] of a wholly new series, ''American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior''. This continuation has a similar formula, but this time, the arguments between father and son are SeriousBusiness. As in, [[JerkAss Paul Sr.]] does everything he can to put the workshop of his son, Paul Jr. Designs, out of business.
