Orange County Choppers (OCC)

When you hear "Orange County" you may think of California, but the Hudson Valley boasts its own. It's there, specifically in Rock Tavern, N.Y., where you'll find Orange County Choppers - about 80 miles from New York City.

Established as a business in 1999, the shop grew out of Orange County Ironworks, a steel fabrication enterprise founded nearly 30 years ago by custom-chopper builder and rider, Paul Teutul Snr. OCC jumped on the custom-bike scene at Daytona Biketoberfest, 1999, with "True Blue," a classic chopper built in the basement of Paul Snr.'s house.


Other signature bikes soon followed, including the Black Widow Spider Bike purchased by musician Wyclef Jean of the Fugees, and the Jet Bike, built to honour U.S. military forces in Afghanistan.


Today, Orange County Choppers has garnered worldwide praise and recognition for their custom motorcycles. In 2002, OCC was recognised by American Iron as one of the world's top 12 builders.

American Chopper, the popular Discovery Channel's series, hides nothing from the daily routine of the company founder, moustached and tattooed Paul Teutul Sr. and his talented chief designer and fabricator, Paul Teutul Jr.: from their constant brawls to the finishing touches of the next unique ‘piece of art'.

Among their renowned theme choppers are:

Fireman Bike - built in memory of the New York City fire fighters who lost their lives on September 11.

Black Widow spider bike

Comanche Bike

Statue of Liberty bike

Lance Armstrong bike

I, Robot bike

But still which tire brand can match these "2-wheel masterpieces"?

Don't wonder … It's METZELER
