How has Vinnie's life been after leaving American Chopper?


Vincent DiMartino aka Vinnie is an American auto and motorcycle builder, who is known for appearing on the TV show, American Chopper.

From 2002 to 2007, he worked at Orange County Choppers, a New York-based motorcycle customizing company, which is the subject of the show.

In August 2007, he left OCC to start-up his own company, V-Force Customs, in Rock Tavern, NY, where he was joined by Cody Connelly.

Initially, he did customs works on bikes till 2012 but later started focusing on auto after realizing that customs work takes time to progress. 

Thereafter, he changed his company’s name to DiMartino Motorsports.

In 2010, he joined his friend, Paul Teutul Jr., at his shop, Paul Jr. Designs and became a part of the series, American Chopper: Senior Vs. Junior

But, he didn’t actually work for Jr. He was hired as a contractor, and he continued working at his own company and flaunting his merch.

The last project he did with Jr. was in the fall of 2012. Since then, he hasn’t worked on custom bikes. 

However, he plans to do it again in the future once his business becomes strong.

His passion for bike and dedication in customization industry earned him a legion of hardcore fans.

They have always wondered what Vinnie’s life has been like after he left OCC and have tried to know about his family.

Married to a beautiful woman named Melissa since 2001, he has three daughters, Isabella, Ava and Vanessa, and a son, Vincent, with her.

The father of four loves cooking and watches cooking shows. He has even set up a full kitchen in his shop.

Besides being a true family guy, he has a huge clientele, and his business is growing steadily.

Way to go Vinnie!
