There are many hilarious things about this show.

In one episode when they visited a jail, Paul Sr, states "I've never been behind bars before". That's funny, since he was in prison for extortion. Pretty good scam for a guy who was starving in the iron handrail business, eh?

They always use the term "building bikes", giving the impression that they fabricated parts, etc. No, they ASSEMBLE them from other companies parts. Things may have changed (I haven't watched the show in years), but in the past, they didn't "build" anything.

It always amused me to see the shop progress from Paul Jr attempting (and i stress the word "attempt") to mig weld (something a monkey can do), to having fancy CNC machines, etc.

I've personally seen the shady craftsmanship of the bikes that these clowns put together - 2 which caught fire.

Has anyone really payed attention when Paul Sr. talks? every other word is UMM, and ERR. He sounds like a moron.. oh that's right, he IS a moron, and a convict too. I bet they liked that jail-pussy beard in the slammer.

From Rags to Riches,back to Rags. So true of nearly all family business. This was a interesting show of a blue collar family back when only lawyers and Detectives get any airtime. Now they have brought in the lawyers who pick clean the bones of OCC,inc and put how many men out of work?
Shit they like coroner-men at a prise fight pushing their fighter on to fight. So don't be surprise when there only blood and bone in the end.
Of course the lawyers will get paid first. The suppliers and workers will get fisted by lady justice.

I would love to have a chance to let my kids be involved in my business, especially a business like occ. Paul sr is a greedy man,Paul JR built that business along with Mickey. I would never turn my back on my kids. I see now why Paul SR is all along. I ve been watching the show, I dont think hes very happy, hes has all them sux asses around, especially that Jason character.

To Paul JR it wasnt about the money it was about designing a bike that the customer wanted to the best of his ability. Personally I think he done a great job,and they havent ahd that since he left. I ve always had to work for a living,but if i made it big like Paul Sr my kids would have it made. If they want to take a week off so be it. In other words i want my kids to have things better than me.

I agree Paul Sr sucks. Mikey is lazy. Paul Jr is not reliable. Can't believe these guys are as rich as they appear. Show was good a couple years ago. Now it's a freakin soap opera.

Lets face facts Paul Jnr lives in a huge house so has not done that bad out of the program. It was Paul snr that built the business up that allowed Paul jnr to then design the bikes(notice not build them). Mike is a very well paid lay-about with comedy value. I feel Snr is now beyond what he wanted and is being pushed by the network for entertainment. But as i have read, is this all scripted?

The only thing Junior did was come to work,(Late)- Take a lot of Phone calls - Leave (Early)

I also saw Junior Dump on Vinnie and Rick. I saw him Never admit any wrong doings on his part. Every thing that is ever wrong with the Business and the shop was Seniors fault.( What I saw was a spoiled little over privilaged punk ) Treat his father and co- workers like a jerk.
Yes Senior did start the yelling match, He was the Boss, and All He Ever Wanted was his employees to show up for work on time and put in a days work for a days pay. Everyone in the show did that except for Junior.
Who designs the bikes? Jason does. Remember that they had to eat the cost of two bikes that Junior built and the buyer did not like them. The buyers recieved the bikes and told them they were not going to pay for them as they were not what they expected. Did Junior take that credit too? No He walks on water right? After that happened the bikes designs have to be sent to the buyer and sign it before the bike was built.
Junior wants everthing given to him and does not want to give back.
If Junior is so great he will land on his feet in his desing business. Oh and yeah, IF he is such a hot shot why doesnt he build his special bikes with corn cobs and trinkets on them in hsi basement and run OCC out of business??

I know why because it would mean he would have to actually work and do the whole thing.

paul sr,is nothing but a self centered money grabbing jerk,who just loves to be allways in the limelight,allthough jnr designed the bikes and you cant take it away from him,he did help to build them,,it was srn that took all the glory for it,we all new that a break up was on the cards at some point,but for sr,to take his son to court,and start
demanding this and that,is a complete nutter,he dosn,t deserve to be in business,and I hope that he goes out of business,and people wise up to him,and dump him to the kerb,and shut him down,,as far as paul jnr is concerned I wish him all the best,and hope he too makes it big,but to learn from his mistakes,and not go down that same road as paul snr,,,,and treat people with respect,and get respect in return,,,,,,,,,,

Whats going on is a travisty, Sr. Listens to all those low life fucks that are stabbing his boys in the back and cant see the guillotine that these fucks are shoving his head in. Those guys are trying to take what he and his sons built and drive it straight to hell! Sad part is the old bastard is oblivious to it all, while the four horsemen are laughing all the way to the bank! I hope he comes to his senses and gets his shit together bbefore all is lost, but I think he just has too much foolish pride to admit his mistake! A COSTLY ONE!!!!!!

Are you kidding? Look at the Shit bikes Senior has built over the years. Nobody is buying his old washed up styles. Jr was the guy behind the cool stuff and since he has been gone, or even prior with Poole coming on, they look like crap! Regardless of who built what, the guy is an ASS who is going down fast. These investors and corporate chumps in the background are destroying him and will pick apart his company when they are ready. It's the corporate way...What a moron who just can't see it.

Sure, Jr. & Mikey both f'd off way too much, but again, this is "Reality TV" remember, and that sh!t is all scripted. Might as well have a WWE Ring in the damn show. So they probably did what they were supposed to and made some entertainment for what was boring in the beginning. If you think anything else, you are nuts.

I really think you have a very good point. That JQ has complained some on camera, as I recall. I think the guy that Senior shares the office with I dont remember his name and the big guy with the receding chin is also someone that is present when Senior is on the rampage, like that have just fired Senior up to do something.

Others have said it is a publisity stunt the whole thing. It is causing some drama for sure, but is it to get the rating up so they can make money for that network? Does anyone know what kind of money they make for that show??

When Jesse James had his shows on there was a comment that he was making so much money from the TV filming and the Show that he did not have to have his shop. So I guess this is a source of income for Mikey and Junior, as well as Senior.
