Behind the Scenes

American Chopper is a one of a kind show. It follows a family business that makes custom chopper motorcycles. Along the way there is tons of drama, funny moments, and of course awesome rides. The show aired for six seasons between 2003 and 2010 on the Discovery Channel, and it helped launch tons of different spinoffs for both Discovery and TLC. In and of itself, this was a purely American show: one of the first of its kind about a self-made man and his family business creating one of the most iconic pieces of Americana imaginable, choppers. Despite how well the show was shot and how involved the viewers felt, there was always something interesting going on behind the scenes that fans didn’t always know about.
