The Real Mikey Teutul

Michael Joseph "Mikey" Teutul (born November 26, 1978) is the youngest son of Orange County Choppers founder Paul Teutul, Sr., and brother of Orange County Choppers former chief fabricator, Paul Teutul, Jr.. The Teutul family is featured in the Discovery Channel's reality television series American Chopper and American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior.

At age 14, Teutul began working at his family's company, the Orange County Iron Works. After his father and brother, Paul Jr., started Orange County Choppers, Teutul joined them there as an Assistant General Manager. His duties involved answering phones and taking out the trash, though on rare occasions he would help out with bike builds, at one point building his own. While at OCC, Michael served largely as a comedy relief for the OCC crew.

After Paul Jr. was fired by Paul Sr. during a heated argument towards the end of the series, Michael tried to play the role of negotiator between his brother and father, encouraging them to try to work out their issues. As revealed in Season 6 Episode 13, Mikey has now been squeezed out of the business. He was a major and popular part of the show and used to appear at promotional events for OCC.[1] Michael has joined his brother, Paul Jr., and other former OCC employees in Paul Jr.'s post-OCC business venture, Paul Jr. Designs.

Teutul has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In December 2009, it was revealed on American Chopper that Michael Teutul had checked himself into rehab to overcome an alcohol addiction.[2]

Teutul's hobbies include painting (he has auctioned some of his work, having recently opened up his "Wolfgang Gallery" in Montgomery, NY), skeet shooting and is currently attempting to market a line of gourmet pasta sauces under the moniker FarQueue Products, LLC.[3]
