    Default Paul Senior car collection

    Anyone notice in tonights episode the mint Cascade blue vert GS?

    I didn't hear what he was talking about because I was dead set on seeing more of that car. Maybe I should take a drive down to the shop and ask for a peek at it!

    Family issues aside you have to give the guy credit he built an empire off of a business everyone and their brother is into (no offense to any motorcycle builders out there, I'm just saying its a popular trade) and they practically invented the idea of the theme bike (correct me if I am wrong) Sure its messed up that there are family issues but hey someone from my neck of the woods is famous! Thats pretty cool in my book, I pass the headquarters everyday on the way to work.

    I always liked Indian Larry better. Seniors oldschool bikes are kinda boring and his newschool stuff was all designed by Jr.

    I think it's interesting that he's having trouble paying the mortagage on his new complex but he's holding onto all his cars and his big piece of property. Seams like maybe he's planning ahead a bit and is willing to let the company die when he retires.

    Actually Paul Sr had a steel business before he got into bike building full time. I believe he sold the steel business to one of his other sons.

    Yes Orange County Ironworks, his son Dan owns it now, I've been there a few times myself. I guess it goes to show he is a business man and I'm sure the reason him and his sons don't speak anymore is because his sons want the benefits of those business' he created. Junior wanted stake in OCC when really Senior only gave it to him because he never thought it was going anywhere and he did it to avoid issues. When Junior left Senior wanted that 20% of his company back and he wanted it for what it was originally worth which is zero. I can't say whose right or wrong but thats the gist of it.

    What I find funny is that Senior gets pissed at Juniors work ethic when he himself doesn't do much work. Then again he owns the place though

    Senior is wrong. The shares have a value and that's what he has to pay to get them back. Shares aren't sold at the value that they were at when they were purchased. If that was the case than there wouldn't be any investors since they would never see any profits. He's just lucky it's not a publicly traded company or he'd be in jail for falsifying the companys value to manipulate stock prices.

    I will say that senior should be respected for his determination, and that junior should be respected for his creativity, but I wouldn't want my kid to end up like either of them. I think I'd rather have a kid like Vinny or Rick

    They are both very wrong when you think about it and both are too stubborn to see why. Junior wanted to be seen as the driving force behind OCC instead of part of the team and Senior wants what he believes to be solely his. Junior deserves money for his shares but at the same time Senior has a right to not want to pay even though he doesn't have a legal right.

    I don't think either of them is right and I think they just shouldn't be in business together at all

    Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    I like the show, but Sr. and Jr. are too much alike to work together. Not too much different from my oldest and me.

    After all, sons grow up wanting to be like pops. I think they are more alike than some people think they are.

    Your all miising the whole concept here. The makers of the show realized early on that conflict was selling the show more than the bikes. Watch any show of similar content and you get the same thing, CONFLICT. Caar warriors, Desert Valley show, American Restoration, you name it stupid made up conflict and impossible to believe (or achieve) deadlines. Now you have this wghole thing where Paul jr leaves and starts his own place and he cannot even geta sign made! His logo is a banner on the side of the building. IMHO I think its all because the audience was shrinking thats why you have Sr VS Jr its all the same tired old crap. The shows producers decided to double down on the conflict and thats why I don't care to watch these type shows.

    I change the Chanel when it comes on. The Y and R is more interesting! This stuff gives real builders a bad name! The only thing they are really into is $$$$$

    All there bikes look the same .

    I think you are on the money. Ratings is the game and who knows what’s real and what’s not. I wouldn’t be surprised if Paul Jr’s shop is being leased form the old man. Have to give Paul Sr. credit for building two successful businesses.
