American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior: Free Rick

7 Nov

November  7, 2011

DISCLAIMER! Until yesterday, Discovery said this was going to be the Cadillac Build-Off Part 2 airing tonight. However, when I checked their website yesterday, they suddenly had a listing for a new episode. I have no clue why the mixup, but rather than post a repeat blog of the Cadillac Build-Off, here is the description of what may or may not be the next new episode. Feel free to talk about the dueling 9/11 bikes instead of the rerun.

FREE RICK
Nov. 7, 2011
Junior lands the biggest job of his  career when he is asked to build a bike inspired by the restoration of Ground  Zero in NYC. Senior secures a build for a wealthy foreigner and rumors fly at  both shops over Rick’s assumed discontent at OCC.

First things first. I already showed you the pics of the PJD 9/11 bike weeks ago right here.

OCC builds a 9/11 bike, then PJD builds one. Coincidence? No. We’ve seen this over and over and over. They do the same type of bike and get the same type of clients.  There is very little “reality” here. We’ve already seen both bikes so before this even begins I am saying that Paulie’s is far, far better. The OCC bike had no connection to 9/11 except for part of the paint job. Paulie’s works the whole memorial into the theme. OCC made a nice bike, but as a 9/11 tribute? No way. Hands down, Paulie wins.

This is the difference between a desinger and a, well, whatever Jason Pohl is. Paint over the rear and this could be a bike for anything. In fact, if you google OCC 9/11 bike (or anything like that) the fire bike comes up most, not this. Sure, that bike has been around longer, but it is still a far better tribute than this black bike.

Secondly, is Rick leaving? Draw your own conclusions. This is from his page on the OCC website: “Petko now resides in Stroudsburg, PA, where he built himself a workshop to work on projects of his own.” That’s a long commute to work.

    Same old sh!t ———— Paul Sr. is a good business man, however, he needs some serious theropy!

    All of the steroids, alcohol and drugs from his past have really messed this guy up!

    He has obviously aged a great deal in the last year.

  2. Wait, I am confused. Did I miss a new episode this Monday or was it the Cadillac build off II?

    In the first few years of the original American Chopper Rick lived in Pennsylvania. I don’t know if he moved at some point or if he’s always remained there.

    I am getting so, so tired of Mikey. I think he needs a vacation from the series. He is a mess and does nothing to justify his being on the program. I used to like his part in the program but now it is just so repetitive and boring. How about giving him a break and let him get his life in order and figure out how to contribute.

    Sr. would not be where he is today if it weren’t for Jr. Jr. is the smartest of them all with all of his clever ideas. Sr. needs to be off of the show; he is ruining the show. He doesn’t even now what he is talking about half of the time. Jr. is too smart for Sr.
