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?"I truly believe that tradition is important to the long-term survival of the fire service."-Lt. Andrew Fredricks, FDNY,9-11-01

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

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.Gods Speed to our Troops!

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......if you put the handline in the right spot, you won't have to jump out the window...

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.Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!

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.
