Orange County Choppers goes electricThu, 13 Aug 2009 00:00:00 -0700
The video you're watching isn't the electric chopper built by Orange County Choppers, but Paul Teutal Sr. has been showing off the Siemens Smart Chopper that he did build, a chopper built for Siemens to display their technical prowess.
According to Teutal Sr., the Smart Chopper has a range of around 60 miles and can do up to 100mph. He also claims it costs over $1,000,000.
We can believe that, but we can't believe his claim that it's the first custom American electric chopper. And that's the reason for the video above - this fella beat you to it Mr Teutal Sr. and we bet he got some change from $1m too..
