I see people saying that it is an American Chopper bike, technically true as PJD and Orange County Choppers (OCC) are now part of the Discovery Channel’s American Chopper series, but hell dudes, give Paul Jr and his company some credit.
Especially for the Gears of War 3 build as well as the Cadillac CTS-V build and Cadillac build-off between Paul Sr/OCC & Paul Jr/PJD. The designs and builds are just that good that they deserve to stand on their own. It is always important to a new company to get that level of cred.
And it is a bad, bad trike.
I am really not a gamer.
Epic Games puts out the Gears of War series of video games and #3 in that series is hugely popular.
It is getting harder for me to watch the American Chopper TV series. First, there are other options on Monday night, especially with the NFL back. Second, the whole Sr/Jr thing has just worn me down to the point it’s not as good as it used to be. So, I watch but I am not really a fan.
That said, here is a little video about the Gears of War trike. I do really like this build because it looks so unfucking real. I was getting tired of OCC’s “theme bikes”, they all began to look so much alike and I tend to like custom choppers that are street driveable. Which makes many of the bikes from the Discovery Channel’s Biker Build-Off series much better to me.
But this post is about the trike, so let’s get back to it.
The trike was unveiled at the 2011 Comic-Con convention. check this out as Paulie, Jr. drives it in past the crowd. The bike/trike is unfucking-believable! Check the reactions of the crowd.
Here is the trike and Paulie walking thru the details. I love the rims and tires and the crash bars on each side.
Paul says “This bike is massive”, and so it is. This clip has a few segments of the prior one but stands on its own.
American Chopper Aftershow: If you haven’t seen them yet there are Aftershow segments posted on the Discovery Channel website with the staff discussing events on the show (and sometimes things we don’t see on the show) and answering questions from the fans. Check the Aftershow out here.
A Paul Jr YouTube channel is here.
And for you Gears of War 3 freaks here is the Band of Brothers intro.
While you are at it, did you see the SciFi movie Tron?
Well, now there is a Tron Light Cycle and apparently it is street legal. “More science than fiction”.
