Bio-Engineered Supplements and Nutrition, Inc (BSN) and eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman are coming to your television screen tonight. The episode will air tonight on The Learning Channel (TLC) at 9 pm EST, and will document the building of a custom fabrication, one-of-kind BSN-themed chopper bike

As for Coleman, he received a warm welcome from the Teutuls. “Yeah, [Paul Sr.] has been keeping up with me a little bit,” Coleman said. “He trains, he did some contest back in the day.”

Coleman didn’t train with the Teutuls, but he did get an up-close view of the state-of-the-art training facility at Orange County Chopper headquarters in Newburgh, New York. Coleman, for his part though, wasn’t aware at the time that the show would air on television.

“It was a lot of fun,” Coleman said. “I knew we were filming, but I didn’t know they were going to put it on TV. I just thought they were filming for their own purposes. If I’d known that, I would have participated more.”

With the eight-time Mr. Olympia Coleman present, the Orange County Chopper crew decided to put together an impromptu OCC-style strongman competition, with some thoroughly entertaining events like the “Chopper-Tire Discus Throw” and the “Engine-Block Relay Race”.

Although Coleman didn’t travel back to Orange County Chopper headquarters to see the bike’s unveiling, he did leave impressed enough to purchase his own custom bike.

“I liked the bikes so much I went and bought one,” Coleman siad. “They put my name and eight-time Mr. Olympia on there. I’m gonna be riding it – I had midgets and stuff like that, cruising type of bikes. It will be ready sometime next month.”

Tune in to TLC tonight at 9 pm EST to see it all!
