Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that because this show documents the creation of custom motorcycles, it includes a lot of information and technical terms that most viewers probably won't understand. But there's still a lot of fascination to be had in watching such elaborate projects come together. Pauls Jr. and Sr. often irritate each other and share loud exchanges of some choice words, many of which have to be bleeped out. But it's obvious that each ultimately respects the other and that both think highly of their staff, with whom they share mostly good relationships.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


There's some casual rough-and-tumble among the guys, but it's all play, and no one gets hurt.


"Ass" and "hell" are popular, but anything stronger ("bitch," "s--t," "f--k") is bleeped out.

Social Behavior

The series focuses on the work that goes into building custom motorcycles, but in later episodes this is sometimes overshadowed by the growing tension between father and son.


OCC obviously gets a lot of publicity from the show. The crew often works on creations with themes like Spider-Man or Wendy's, and marketing logos are prominent during those episodes.
