Paul Teutel Jr. shared a quick photo with some rowing veterans, and the “American Chopper” star had his Major League Baseball chopper too.

Teutel Jr. was down at Fernandina Beach, Fla., to meet the guys from Foar From Home. The group will participate in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge, dubbed the World’s Toughest Row.

The “American Chopper” star mentioned that the 3,000-mile row has the group rowing from La Gomera in the Canary Islands to Antigua. 

Since Junior was over on Florida’s East Coast, you have to wonder if he took the trip to see his dad. It’s only a little over three hours to drive to the old man’s house in Brooksville.

‘American Chopper’ Star Sponsoring A Lucky Mile

The “American Chopper” star said his group sponsored a mile during the event and quizzed fans over that specific part of the journey.

One Instagram fan knew right away, saying it was 777 because that’s what Teutel Jr. uses on his bikes and T-shirts?

The group is working to bring awareness and financial support to PTSD and veteran suicide. They have raised more than $685,000 for the Cross The Line charity’s educational endowment. Another project will help fund a 64-dog mega kennel for K9s for Warriors in Ponte Vedra, Fla.

Lots of Social Media Fun

The “American Chopper” star took a quick look back at what he was doing nine years ago recently.

Teutel Jr. reminisced about riding in the Nevada desert and getting ready for the Hard Rock build-off. One Twitter user still admired the bike, saying, “that bike will still look good in 50 years.”

Paul Jr. was back in the shop in another Instagram post and worked on another build last week. The bike’s bones looked great, and fans can’t wait to see what special touch the master bike builder would put on it.

New Sign For Paul Jr.’s Shop

Finally, the star took to Twitter to share a video on what a sign will look like hanging at his upcoming Long Beach Island PJD shop.

Teutel Jr. talked about having a lot of stuff to bring to the new shop, but he saw this sign and had to have it.

He said he was looking for stuff that was a little bit more “oceanic” and “beachy” when he saw a sailor. The seller told the star that there were five of these signs from a shipyard in Chicago.

“The five signs hung at an entrance, and they were air-activated,” Teutel Jr. said of the steel or aluminum figure. “I’m guessing some engineers down at shipyard made this thing.”

The “American Chopper” star said he figured the sailor sign should salute when he got it in working order.
