Orange County Choppers
October 2009
While travelling on I-97 to Vermont, I realized that we'd be passing by Orange County Choppers. They have a lot of the theme bikes that I've seen them build on their Discovery Channel series American Chopper. They also have a viewing area where you can watch the guys work in the shop. I didn't see any Teutels wandering around but we did see Rick Petko and Mike Amorati.

The front of Orange County Choppers' new building is quite impressive
The Christmas Bike is one of OCC's more fun bikes.
The Christmas Bike is probably the only bike around with a reindeer head front fender.

The wall of patches behind the fire bike demonstrates the overwhelming response that it drew from the fire and police community across the nation
The cutout rear fender is one of my favorite features of the POW-MIA bike

OCC's shop is visible from a viewing area. It feels like watching American Chopper with the TV muted.
