If the latest episode of "American Chopper" is any indication, maybe the Teutuls had better keep their newly re-kindled relationship strictly personal. Building a bike for fun and nostalgia is one thing. The notion of having their separate companies join forces to design a bike for business purposes might be more than they could handle.
And it wasn't just the Teutuls immediately feeling the tension of the proposal. It would make sense that some of the employees of Paul Jr. Designs and Orange County Choppers may have formed some opinions of their own about the longstanding emotional feud between their bosses.
One of Junior's employees had no problem letting it be known, saying, "I don’t wanna work for OCC. I don’t. I’ll put that right out there."
Emotions ran high up front as well, when Senior snapped at Junior during the presentation for cutting him off. It's a huge risk pushing their relationship in this direction, as Junior acknowledged, but it could pay off as well as the personal bike build did. Junior, at least, seems hopeful that it will.
