06.17.16 Orange County Choppers in Newburgh, NY

OCC-complex-wideJune 17, 2016 – A place we didn’t realize is in southern New York is Orange County Chopper.  Paul Teutel Junior and Paul Teutel Senior (known as Senior) use to have a television show Roy simply loved and watched every single episode.

Their address is: 14 Crossroads Ct, Newburgh, NY 12550.  Tours 4 times a day on weekdays and 2 times a day on weekends.  It was $5 for us to get in but I don’t know if we were considered seniors giving us a reduced price.

At some point while driving around this area earlier in the week I saw that we drove through Orange County and that made me wonder if this is where OCC was located.  We looked it up and it was!!!  It was maybe 40 minutes from here so we planned to go today and to the site of the Woodstock Festival in nearby Bethel, NY.

The tour was short but fascinating. When you walk in you are in a combination retail https://i1.wp.com/www.ride-ct.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/OCC-sign.jpgshop full of t-shirts, tank tops, ballcaps, and everything OCC!   Several of the famous OCC bikes are on display there.  Many of the bikes we watched being built on their television show.  Here’s some of those bikes and the retail shop.

Right here I have to tell you that we saw, met and took photos with Paul Sr.  I have to say, that when the show started I wouldn’t watch it because Paul Sr. was so mean and had such a filthy mouth.  As the show progressed Paul Sr. became much nicer and stopped all the cursing so I watched it the last couple of seasons.  I was thrilled to meet him and I could almost hear Roy’s heart thumping from the other side of Paul Sr. To actually be walking through the place where their genius motorcycle creations were made was great.  Here are some photos of the shop that became so famous on the television show.

ONE OF THE PEOPLE IN OUR TOUR GROUP BROUGHT THIS DOG AND IT HAD AN ORANGE COUNTY T-SHIRT!!

Paul Sr.’s nephew works there doing a lot of the metal work for the shop.  He stopped working and visited with us for a bit even telling us a joke!  The young girl who did the tour was very knowledgeable and it made for a great experience.

There is a bowling alley and pool room attached to the retail shop. It’s all under the same roof.

  1. Love love love this! I may not have watched in the beginning either….not a fan of anything related to cursing! But eventually he cleaned up his act. We’ll have to go visit. We’ve been wondering how they’re doing. Any other news on Junior? We’re bigger fans of his… 😬
