'American Chopper' Son -- Out to Destroy Dad

4/15/2010 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The oldest son from "American Chopper" has escalated the war against his father by opening up a rival motorcycle business -- and he's making the whole thing incredibly personal.

TMZ has learned Paul Teutul Jr. is starting a competing shop to go head-to-head with his dad's Orange County Choppers shop.

But here's the catch -- Junior has recruited a bunch of disgruntled employees who left his dad's place ... including his brother Mikey Teutul and friends Vinnie DiMartino, Robert "Nub" Collard and Joe Puliafico.

We're told Senior has no idea about the mutiny ... that is, until now.

Has Jr. realized just who his Dad is? He's the one that started the business, took the employees to different places around the world, and most of all gave employment! It was Dads knowledge that that made the business what it is today! Jr. is just a spoiled brat that thinks he knows everything If it wasn't for Sr. Jr. wouldn't have what he has today. As for the law suit, what son in his right mind would sue his/her parent? For what its worth, Jr. is an ASS!!

Paul Sr. ego is so screwed that he will never get together
with his sons Mike and Jr because he alway put them down to a lower level then himself. He is so much into his self it's disgusting. Sr. seem to worry that his sons will achieve much more.
