I watch this awful programme out of the corner of my eye while I'm here on MV most evenings so could you put me out of my misery and tell me when does Paul Jnr finally walk out and start up his own shop ?
I'm at the point where they are making the first prototype for the mass produced bike so how much of this old knackers do I have to sit through until the bottle finally gets uncorked ?

I have a life.

Turn it into a drinking game:

1) Every time junior says "my father' you take a drink.
2) Every time he storms out you finish your pint.


It makes the show much more bearable.

And it really doesn't get better when he starts his own shop.

Quest ?
Teetotal for 17 years now but it's a nice thought.

Why don't things improve when he goes solo ?

I'm actually interested now.

Hey, you live in Boulder ! I've been there twice. Is the old guy who used to get drunk and conduct the traffic in his black suit and deer stalker hat still there ?

Wow so all this happened more than 2 years ago ? Jesus we are behind.
I really enjoy watching the fabrication and painting side of things but sometimes it gets a bit painful/boring.
Snr reminds me of my old Manager which is probably the real reason i can't bare it.

I hope this isn't a spoiler for you, but Jr never quits... he just gets fired one last time and doesn't go crawling back.

And I'm embarrassed that I know this.

But they send them out to get those paint jobs.

I do kinda like the contrast between Jr's method and the dufus with the computer's design technique.

I'm still at the strop and walk out for a few days stage then come back like nothing happened bit.
So Snr sacks Jnr and Jnr takes Vinnie with him and they start up on their own with better results then.

OK I can stop wasting my time/life.

Thanks.

You can't afford to keep a "Good" customer painter on staff. Most custom shops send their paint out.

When I was in the custom business we built more frames for these idiots than they did. They had only 2 Jigs. They were new to the business and were more actors than techs. I met both of them several times and would rather thick my finger down my throat than see them again.(Un- Educated and arrogant )

I'd be wary of waiting for events to catch up. I'm not certain the UK broadcasters of American Chopper give a hoot about season order, they just buy up the old shows and bulk-fill the airtime any way it fits.

I've seen some old shows where they visit Australia and ride Vespa GTSs.
