YONKERS. N.Y. -- Happy Birthday to Yonkers’ Paul John Teutul!

Teutul, who was born in Yonkers, turns 67 on Sunday.

Teutul, one of the co-founders of Orange County Choppers, a manufacturer of custom motorcycles and focus of the reality television series "American Chopper," was born May 1, 1949. Teutul originally started out owning Orange County Ironworks, a fabrication shop now solely owned and managed by son Daniel. He began building custom bikes for pleasure after being inspired by the many custom bikes appearing on the streets and in films. In 1999, he left and co-founded Orange County Choppers with his son Paul Jr. and began building bikes for sale.

He has built a reputation on "American Chopper" for being a hard-nosed businessman and having a short temper. Teutul has appeared on the "Late Show with David Letterman," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." He has been featured in the music video for Nickelback's "Rockstar" and in the television programs "Long Way Round" starring Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman and on "King of the Hill" in Season 10, Episode 10, titled "Hank Fixes."
