The Orange County Choppers (OCC) are definitely stars when it comes to custom motorcycles. The show in Discovery Channel has garnered over millions of viewers since 2002 and till today, it has been regarded as the absolute favourite show of most bikers and is even liked by non-bikers.
Paul Teutul Sr’s team has engaged with many clients including Steven Tyler, Will Smith, Russel Crowe, Jay Leno and even Donald Trump before he became the president of the United States.
Teutul made an appearance in the New Year’s Eve festivities in the Philippines and unveiled two OCC choppers to the crowd and Okada Manila’s Wheels & Fortune grand raffle promo.
“I’m on vacation all the time. I do what I love to do. It’s never really work for me. I could do it every day,” said Teutul. In his 45 years of building custom bikes, he never gets tired of creating more.
The bikes revealed were the Okada Chopper and the Cove Chopper.
“We did one for the casino and one for the Cove where we tried to incorporate the design elements you see here, like the dome structure and the color scheme, into the two bikes. Everything’s hand-crafted on there. I think we came up with a unique design that really represents the brand,” Teutul said.
The Cove Chopper is a long and low motorcycle that depicts the design aspects of Cove Manila. It is painted with a classic turquoise and white colour scheme to reflect the beach vibes. The Okada Chopper is more complex and is inspired by the casino grounds. This is seen in the seven circle logo design.
“We’re really proud to have designed these one-of-a-kind bikes and we look forward to the lucky ones who will be able to bring home a piece of OCC and Okada Manila with them,” Teutul said.
The bikes are absolutely marvelous. We certainly would put these beauties on our list of rides to try.
