UPDATE: We just got this further statement from Paul Sr. It appears that the show will indeed be shot in Florida, “Paul SR and the Orange County Choppers cast and crew are excited about moving their world-class headquarters to the St. Pete/Clearwater area in spring 2021. “
CLEARWATER, Fla. (WKRG/BIKER DAD) — They are known as much for their antics, family feuds, and memes on social media as they are for their wild choppers. There have been a lot of changes at Orange County Choppers over the years but their latest move might be one of the biggest.
The post simply shows a map of Florida, saying, “OCC – The next chapter… The future never looked so bright!” We wanted to know exactly what that means and sent an email to the folks at OCC. They in fact confirmed Sr. and the crew are moving to the Sunshine State. They are currently based in New York State, and with the blistering winter storm slamming the Northeast this week, seems like a smart move for a company that makes and sells motorcycles. Paul Sr. replied to our emailed questions, “we are moving to St Pete/Clearwater area, the property next to Bert’s Barracuda Harley Davidson (in Clearwater) ..the target opening date is Spring 2021.” Ironically, that’s in Pinellas County, not Orange County which isn’t too far away.
Yes, that response does leave a lot of unanswered questions, like will new episodes of the reality show be shot there? The Biker Dad blog has requested an interview with Sr. Hopefully that will happen soon and will get all of our questions answer. Until then, welcome to the south and the sunshine OCC!
