OCC Cafe Bike

American Chopper September 4 "The Build is On"

On this episode of American Chopper, Rick ties the knot, Jr. rocks a faux hawk and Sr. drives a dump truck through the wall to make room for his new restaurant. But perhaps the biggest surprise of the episode came before the show even got started. We are no longer watching “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior” - According to the opening credits and my DVR, it’s just “American Chopper” again. Does this mean we’re still watching Season 4, or is this Season 7 of the old “American Chopper”, or should we just simplify things and call it Season 10?

Whatever season this is, there was plenty going on. It starts out with Sr. still pushing for a joint project between OCC and PJD for charity. Jr. (probably correctly) sees this as a recipe for trouble given that the two are still not able to have a conversation without breaking into an argument. Even though Jr. seems pretty firm about his decision, it’s hard to ignore the dramatic irony in an episode titled “The Build is On.” My guess is we haven’t heard the last on this topic.

Regardless, OCC isn’t waiting around. They are busy building a bike for themselves to promote their new OCC cafe, with plans to open up three such theme cafes. At first the concept seemed a little random. But after some thought, I realized the idea is a riff on the Hard Rock Cafe only they will have choppers on display instead of music memorabilia. Could be fun and definitely better than keeping all their bikes in a warehouse collecting dust.
