Foreword by David Letterman

Share this Article

According to the New York Post, David Letterman is a big motorcycle fan and could watch the same bike being built all week long. One of Letterman’s bikes did appear in the September 2008 issue of American Iron Magazine and he also wrote the forward to Paul Teutul Sr.’s new book “The Ride of a Lifetime” so I guess he walks the walk and talks the talk.

If you don’t already know who Paul Teutul Sr. is then you have probably never heard of his TV show American Chopper on TLC which first aired in 2002 or Orange County Choppers (OCC), the name of his bike shop. Teutul opened OCC in Upper State New York back in 1999, they produce and sell 150 custom bikes a year that start at $30,000. He has appeared and stared in many TV shows, including Long Way Round, My Name Is Earl, Celebrity Family Feud, Late Show with David Letterman (eight times), Nickelback’s Rock Star video and had a small part in the film Wild Hogs.

    Tell the old man its over. He lost everyone except the brown noses who work at his foreclosure business. Believe me they could care less about him. They are only hanging around for a pay check. They kiss his ass but behind his back talk crap about him. I know I have a friend who knows someone who works at occ. Its only a matter of time b/4 occ crashes. Also jason is no designer. Another brown noser jr will make it. Starting out small but making it
