  • In this episode of American Chopper Paul Sr. puts the finishing touches on his Indian inspired retro-bike.

    With the fabrication already well under way, this episode picks right up where the other left off. Paul Sr. and Rick continue working on the Indian inspired bike.

    The bike is torn down and sent out for chrome, paint and pwder coating and when it comes back the frame isn't right. The guys work hard to overcome the problems in time for a magazine shoot and, needless to say, make it with time to spare.

    While this is going on, the person hired to restore one of the two vintage Indians Paul Sr. received in the first episode continues his work and the cameras go to his shop and show us that process. When he gets the bike running, he brings it down to the shop so we can hear it. Although the restoration isn't complete, the project is pretty amazing.

    Paul Sr.'s bike comes out pretty well and is quite different from the usual OCC product. That in itself makes the show interesting but beyond that seeing Paul Sr.'s affection for these old bikes is a lot of fun. He really seems like a kid with a cool new (old) toy and that's good. I like these shows without a lot of the family drama, just guys and bikes, it gives me hope for this show.moreless
