Rick Petko from "American Chopper" stars in the Discovery Channel reality series.

Rick Petko ("American Chopper"), a native of Bath, Pennsylvania, and a motorcycle enthusiast, joined Orange County Choppers as a fabricator and builder in July 2003. At an early age, Petko started riding — mini-bikes, go karts, three-wheelers, four-wheelers, dirt bikes and then eventually Harleys. Besides his love for bikes, Petko is also a huge Nascar fan and started his career working at the racing school at Pocono

Raceway in Pennsylvania and then worked for the Hooters Pro Cup Team before joining OCC. Eventually, he moved on from racing and made a home for himself alongside Paul Sr. and the crew at Orange County Choppers. Petko's love for speed and for making something out of nothing made him a great addition to OCC's growing team. His true passion for bikes is in old school bikes, especially old flat head styles. Since working for OCC Rick has had his hand in some of Orange County Choppers most memorable projects like the POW/MIA bike. The POW/MIA project wasn't just his first build at OCC it also held special meaning for him because his cousin's name is on the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. and was also placed on the rear fender of the bike.  

Petko now resides in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, where he built himself a workshop to work on projects of his own.
