After he finished his primary education, Cody went to Valley Central High School in Montgomery, New York, where he graduated in 2005. Then he went to the American Motorcycle Institute, where he learned how to ride a motorcycle (AMI).
Did You Know?
At the age of five, Cody was given his first bike by his father, a Honda XR 50. This was the start of his love for bikes. With the help of his father, he learned how to properly care for and build his bike, which made him even more excited about building motorcycles.
All about Cody Connelly ’s Career
In 2001, when Cody was still a high school student, he joined the Orange County Choppers (OCC) in New York, which makes custom-made motorcycles. He did this while still in high school. During his training, the OCC paid for him to go to AMI. In 2003, just before the Discovery Channel show “American Chopper” aired, Cody got involved in a project that soon became known as “The Cody Project.” The bike was shown at the 2003 Daytona Beach Bike Week and was featured in the sixth episode of the show’s first season.
Cody was also in charge of putting together and fabricating the “Old School” project for the OCC. Paul Teutul Sr. and the Orange County Choppers gave it to him as a gift.
The show ran for a number of years, and Cody became one of the show’s most popular characters because of his kind personality and high-quality work. Paul Teutul Sr., the founder, owner, and CEO of OCC, and his son Paul Teutul Jr., who was OCC’s chief designer, were also popular characters.
As a result, after DiMartino left OCC in August 2007 to start his own custom motorcycle building shop, Connelly left OCC in October 2007 as well. Connelly joined his friend and former colleague at V-Force Customs. It was called “V-Force 1,” and it was made for the Arena Football League’s Tampa Bay Storm team from Florida, which played in the league. Next, Cody worked at V-Force Customs for a few more years before the shop changed names and became DiMartino Motorsports.
Connelly abruptly left OCC and sued OCC and Paul Teutul Sr. for using his likeness and brand name without permission, as well as for fraud and breach of contract, after he was fired from OCC and Paul Teutul Sr. Allegedly, the “Old School” motorcycle that was given to Cody as a gift was later returned to the OCC. Connelly was never given the motorcycle as a gift. Four years later, in 2011, a judge agreed to drop the charges and the case was closed.
American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior, a spin-off reality TV show that premiered on TLC in August 2010, also has Cody Connelly as a guest star. After the Teutuls broke up and Teutul Jr. left OCC to start his own custom bike shop called Paul Jr. Designs, Cody reunited with DiMartino. Together, they helped Paul Jr. set up his business.
After a lot of bad things happened, Cody Connelly decided to leave the world of professionally built custom choppers. He found a job at a local utility company, but he still does some custom work in his own garage.
