Rick Petko spent his childhood in his hometown. Other information about his early life and education is unknown in the media, except that when he was only seven years old, he began riding not only bikes, but also mini-bikes, dirt bikes, go karts, three-wheels, four-wheels, etc. He soon became also a huge fun of motorcycles, so he made a decision to start pursuing a career as a manufacturer of motorcycles, as well as riding them.
At the beginning of his career, Rick worked for five years at Pocono Raceway, a racing school, and with Hooters Pro Cup Team.

Thus, when the show began to air on the Discovery Channel, he very soon became one of the favorite members of the show, as he presented himself as one of the hardest working men in the company. This increased immensely his popularity and added a considerable amount to his net worth.

However, the show ended in 2010, and after that he worked at OCC until 2016, when he quit. However, in the meantime he also appeared in the 2014 TV special “American Chopper: Shaq Bike”, which also contributed to his wealth.
Currently, Rick works as a custom fabricator at the Pocono Mountain Harley Davidson company, and now he is a part of another reality TV series entitled “American Chopper: Senior Vs Junior”. His net worth is certainly still rising.
