American Chopper is a reality show that documents the adventures and misadventures of motorcycle builders Orange County Choppers in Mongomery, New York. The show revolves around the dysfunctional Teutul family and their merry band of coworkers as they build "theme" bikes for high-profile customers (Gilette, Lincoln, Miller Electric) as well as custom bikes for individual customers (Davis Love III).

In 2010 the series ended after seven seasons but TLC announced that the boys of Orange County Choppers would be returning to TV on American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior with an increased focus more towards the family rather than the bikes.
