Custom-chopper builder and rider Paul Teutul, Sr. established Orange County Choppers as a business in 1999. The shop grew out of Orange County Ironworks, a steel fabrication enterprise he founded nearly 30 years ago. OCC jumped on the custom-bike scene at Daytona Biketoberfest 1999 with "True Blue," a classic chopper built in the basement of Paul Sr.'s house. Other signature bikes soon followed, including the “ Spider Bike,” purchased by musician Wyclef Jean of the Fugees, and the “Jet Bike.” Built to honor U.S. military forces in Afghanistan, the “ Jet Bike” was featured in the original American Chopper that aired on Discovery Channel in September 2002.
Today, Orange County Choppers has garnered worldwide praise and recognition for their custom motorcycles. Orange County Choppers is based in Montgomery, NY and produces 150 bikes annually. For more information, visit www.orangecountychoppers.com.
