I just love their TV prog, am shocked and surprised that the business folded in 2013. Old news that I'm sure many already knew. What a shame such a loss of specialised engineering ability. Anyone have an update? Did they start again under another name? Orange County Choppers Founder Puts Unit in Bankruptcy By Phil Milford and Michael Bathon Feb 1, 2013 8:11 PM GMT 36 Comments Email Print Facebook Twitter Google+ LinkedIn Save TV star Paul Teutul Sr., founder of Orange County Choppers Holdings Inc., sought U.S. Bankruptcy Court protection for his merchandising unit with plans to liquidate its assets. The family-run custom-built motorcycle company operated by Teutul and his son, Paul Jr., is based in Newburgh, New York. Its Hudson Valley Merchandising LLC listed $1.12 million in assets and $1.44 million in debts in papers filed yesterday in Poughkeepsie, New York. The parent company didn’t file. Under Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code a trustee will automatically be appointed to dismantle the company, sell its assets and distribute the proceeds to creditors. The Teutuls’ “American Chopper” reality television show ended its decadelong run on the Discovery Channel in December. It featured the antics and interactions between father and son in their New York state motorcycle shop.
