Paul Teutul Sr. is primarily known for his involvement in three things: the motorcycle business, the reality television business, and the getting-angry-and-yelling-at-his-two-sons business (everyone remembers the infamous Paul Jr. vs. Paul Sr. argument from American Chopper).
So, if you’re wondering where Paul is today, you’re in the right place (in case you didn’t notice the title). Let’s take a look at what Mr. Teutul has been up to recently.
Paul Teutul Sr.: Star of American Chopper and Orange County Choppers
In 2010, American Chopper ended. At least as a Discovery Channel show. Paul Jr. had left the show and Senior also seemed ready to move on. While the spin-off show American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior aired from 2010-2012, Senior also kept busy with several personal projects. In 2013, the short-lived TV show Orange County Choppers aired on CMT, which gave viewers another inside look at Senior’s custom motorcycle shop in Orange County, New York. In 2018, American Choppers returned to Discovery Channel and has aired for two additional seasons.
In December 2019, it was announced that Paul Jr. and Paul Sr. were filming a two-hour special, during which they build a new bike together. Filming was scheduled to end on January 15, 2020, though an official air date for the show is yet to be determined.
Aside from his TV appearances and custom bike building at OCC, Teutul spends time with his family and longtime girlfriend Joan Bulger-Kay. They enjoy riding motorcycles and rescuing animals in their free time. They currently live and work together in Orange County, New York.

Tides are changing at Orange County Choppers! I met Josh on Instagram 2 years ago. After we did one bike together it was clear that even though we had 30 years between us, we had the same old school work ethic and love of old school bikes. Josh is not only running the shop, he has taken on a huge part of the present and future business. Big things are coming💪@joshua8787 #Orangecountychoppers #motorcycles #Choppers #American #Americanchopper #NewyorkAdvertisementAdvertisement
Paul Teutul Sr. Net Worth
As of 2020, Teutul still seems to be battling debt and, unfortunately, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. He had to sell his New York mansion to help cover the costs, as well as a couple boats, an ATV, a bulldozer, and a John Deere tractor. Teutul, who was born in Yonkers and served in Vietnam as a member of the United States Merchant Marines, has a current net worth of $500,000. Good luck out there, Paul!
