  • American Choppers

    Just wondering if anyone watched the show American Choppers on the Discovery Channel about the orange county choppers. They built a special firefighter bike for the FDNY. It was a pretty sharp looking bike. did anyone else see it?

    Yeah, it was a very awesome bike. If I understand correctly they are going to build a second one also.

            Cool Bike

            I miss the second part the first time around,
            but finaly got a change to see it today.

            Where did the bike end up?

            A lot of heart and soul went into that project.

            I also loved his welding helmet.

                    You can paint something red and throw down some chrome treadplate and call it fire-___________, but I think the kid doing the leaf, the striping, and the airbrush work MADE that bike. That was just icing on the cake there. And those wheels? How ****ing cool were those things, huh? And then when Vinnie rides it to the firehouse and it's all like 12 feet long, that thing is just righteous. I'm glad I saw the finish episode...

                        Paul Sr., Paul Jr. and the whole OCC gang were amazingly gracious to our department "Motorcycle Week 2003" in our fair city. We were allowed a special private viewing of the motorcycles and we spent about a half hour taking pictures,chatting up the guys and girls, and having our OCC tee shirts and ball caps autographed.

                        A special presentation was made by our Local to the Teutul's:

                          If you got your hands on that bike and the 300 mph jet powered fire engine I saw recently, and you would have a good start to the ultimate quick response team.

                              Our Deputy Harbormaster went up there and said there was a 2.5 hour wait to get into see it at Laconia----very worth it he said.
