Gear heads can enjoy the nuts and bolts of this reality series about the Orange County Choppers custom bike shop, but the engine of the show is undoubtedly badass tattooed biker owner Paul Teutel, Sr. as he continuously tears his employee sons new crankshafts.

The bike-building banger has inspired two video games: American Chopper (PS2, Xbox) and American Chopper 2: Full Throttle (GameCube, PS2, Xbox).
