Thats an interesting thought but i would think that they dont. Its more likely that OCC is not getting paid for those bikes by Discovery and taking all the publicity as advertisement. If they ever had to pay for the ammount of advertisement they get thru that show they would be broke.
ALso..........when the bikes are done, they can always sell them later as "discovery show bikes"!!
From what I gathered from the recent Snap-On bike build, Paul Jr. has been worthless around the shop since he bought the Prowler and started dating some girl. Apparently she was/is a receptionist with O.C.C.
During the show they showed them through a window sucking face and I heard Sr. cussing about Jr.'s "fancy new car" and "watch" and "girlfriend". Come to think about it I think Sr. just likes to cuss about anything Paul Jr!
I dunno.. As far as "soaps" go its good fun, but I'm no big fan of their bikes. To me a "chopper" should be lean, mean & clean. They just seems to add a bunch of non-funtional doo-da's. Thats just me though.
On the topic of what they actually make themselves, I've been wondering about that. Do they do frames and wheels? Just seems like they seem to just "appear" on the show.
