In 2003, a father-son business reality show hit the Discovery Channel. It was called American Chopper and it followed the custom motorcycle building business of the Tuttle family out of Newburgh, NY. Paul Sr. owned the shop with sons Paul Jr and Mikey working in the business. There was a slew of cast and characters. The center of the show wasn't just the amazing custom motorcycles built for celebrities and others, it was the volatile relationship between Sr. and Jr. The show ran for 12 seasons before the two could no longer get along. It ended up in lawsuits and the two not talking for ten plus years. In the past few years, the business moved to Florida. This left the 61,000-square-foot headquarters for sale and abandoned. Take a look at what remains of Orange County Choppers.
When someone is riding a Harley Davidson, it has a distinct sound and you can hear it coming a mile away. Now the motorcycle giant is coming up with a new breed of bike, the 100% electric Harley. It's not for sale yet, but bike enthusiasts may have the opportunity to test drive it during a 30-city tour across America!
The weather held off Friday allowing for a number of area bikers to test ride the new 2014 line of Indian Motorcycles at Dick's Indian Motorcycles of Rome. Matt Herkimer and Jeremiah were on hand to talk with company reps and catch all the positive rider reviews.
