‘American Chopper’ Star Paul Teutul Sr. Trades Motorcycles for Horses in New Video

by Matthew Memrick

Sure, Paul Teutul Sr. knows his horsepower, but does the “American Chopper” star know a couple of nice horses in a short video he posted to Instagram?

Well, they may know him, but it’s probably because the 72-year-old New York native has snacks. Jokingly, he pans the camera back and forth between two fine-looking horses. Teutul talks to them, and they look like they’re listening. 

But you really can’t tell if they’re looking at his snacks, and we don’t know what the snacks are, but it makes a few seconds of entertaining video.

‘American Chopper’ Star Reflects On Life

Earlier this month, Teutul shared some “good times” from his life over the years. The Instagram video showed some show moments as well as some personal moments.

It looks like the move to sunny Florida from chilly New York has paid off for the TV personality. He’s successfully moved his business to Pinellas Park and still takes time to watch his dogs play on the front porch.

The slideshow was the perfect touch on a man’s life who started his career just welding and drinking to running his businesses and getting a little television time with the family.

Teutul Sr. is the star of the Discovery Channel series, “American Chopper.” He is also the founder of the Orange County Choppers American motorcycle manufacturer and lifestyle brand company.

‘American Chopper’ Star To Be At Florida Bikefest

According to the St. Petersburg Catalyst, Paul Teutul Sr. will participate in the three-day Bert’s St. Pete Bikefest.

The “American Chopper” star hosts the Orange County Choppers Road House and Museum event in Pinellas Park, which started Thursday.

Teutul Sr. will make a personal appearance on Saturday and this year’s headlining bands are Saliva (Thursday), Lo Cash (Friday), and Night Ranger (Saturday).

The bikefest also features more than 200 cycles as part of a Full Throttle magazine event along with a “vendors” row.

‘American Chopper’ Helping Veterans

Last week, Paul Teutul Sr. was also part of a Wounded Warriors Abilities Ranch groundbreaking. According to Patch, the charitable group will have a new memorial garden at Lurie Park in Pinellas Park.

Teutul Sr. treated the veteran group to lunch at his Clearwater restaurant as part of the charity event.

The star is supporting veteran Mike Delancey’s vision to help wounded military veterans in their healing processes. Delancey’s ranch hopes to get veterans to socialize and participate in a host of adaptive sports. Veterans can also attend support groups and workshops, host family celebrations, and honor those fellow service members.

Delancey was paralyzed by a sniper’s bullet while serving with the Marines in Iraq in 2006. He started the nonprofit ranch in 2016 at the city-owned Lurie Park.
