Well, what a sweet moment. “American Chopper” star Paul Teutul Sr. reunited with his son Mikey and they produced this nice photo.

It shows both of them wearing the same shirt. Of course, they would because, hey, it’s father and son.

Take a look at Paul and Mikey standing together as Pops shared this on his Instagram account.

Longtime “American Chopper” fans know that Mikey was part of the show. But he left and started working as the assistant general manager of Orange County Choppers.

In addition, Mikey Teutul is the founder of FarQueue Products LLC. His company offers consumers a variety of homemade pasta sauces.

“American Chopper” had an original run on TLC and the Discovery Channel from 2010-12. The show did have a comeback between 2018-19 before finally leaving the network.

There has been a lot of turmoil between father and sons played out on the TV series. Legal actions and lawsuits have been flying over the years, too.

But there are plenty of motorcycle enthusiasts who still hold “American Chopper” and the Teutul family close to their hearts.

‘American Chopper’ Star Has Dealt With Financial Setbacks

It has not always been an easy road for “American Chopper” star Paul Teutul Sr. He has had to deal with a lot of financial setbacks. Let’s take a look at some of it.

The show ended its original run in 2010. That show averaged 3 million viewers when it was on for the first time. After it ended, Teutul has dealt with financial trouble. That’s according to the Daily Voice.

Teutul Sr. filed for bankruptcy in 2018. He had multiple lawsuits. Those and the show ending pushed him to file for bankruptcy. In February 2020, Page Six reported Teutul Sr. was forced to pay a photographer more than $258,000 in one suit. Then he faced another one in 2017 with a former business partner.

Celebrity Net Worth noted that Teutul Sr. claimed more than $1 million in debt while having a $15,000 monthly income. But news outlets worked on those numbers. Then it was revealed that Teutul Sr. sold his New York mansion, several boats, an ATV, bulldozer, and John Deere tractor.

But Celebrity Net Worth managed to work those numbers and come up with his net worth of around $500,000. That’s a far cry from where other reality TV stars might be in their financial lives.

Yet Teutul Sr. continues to work even if the TV show is no longer on the air.

Plus, the show remains popular with those in the world of motorcycles. Even in the world of the Internet, fans can sometimes turn a couple of screenshots into memes. That’s one way of staying relevant.
