OCC Bike. Intel Inside.

Intel has commissioned a custom motorcycle from Orange County Choppers of American Chopper reality TV fame. Intel’s OCC bike has a built-in computer system that includes GPS navigation and a fingerprint scanner to ensure only authorized people can start it (I don’t think it prevents a bike from being stolen). Could this keep OCC’s Mikey from having a joyride on the new bike? Stay tuned for the next episode if you really care. Why an Intel’s custom bike? Because motorcycles are appealing to a broad range of people and Intel may be hoping a little bit of cool image. Having its name thrown throughout a couple of hours of television is an added bonus.

    The bike is not bad. But many, many builders better than OCC.

    OCC, the “Build a bike out of a catalog Company”. No thanks.

    OCC clothes from K Mart, JC PENNY’S and WAL MART!!!! YUCK!!!!!!! Too many other better builders. Looks like OCC is wanting to put bikes with their logo on the assembly line. You’d never be able to get a one of a kind from those guys. Most likely it is to make sure Mikey doesn’t go for a joyride!!!

    My guess is that most of those whining about OCC’s lack of quality and other issues, have never even been on an OCC chopper or for that matter, even seen one other than on TV. Wa Wa Wa, get a life people!

    X Man,
    I did have a chance to see one of their bikes in Colorado, couple of years ago at the four corners rally. It was the Dixie Chopper bike. I can honestly say that the fit and finish, quality of the welds ect, were not that impressive. If you know anything about building so called quality “choppers”, that’s not what their doing there. All you have to do is watch the show. They are not building choppers, they are building fat rear tire, assembled from catalog parts customs. Do some research, and learn what a true “chopper” or “bobber” really is about.

    Me too.I saw a few of their bikes from up close. Bad welds, bad molding, sloppy assembly, so/so electricals. etc…But I must admit that they are under pressure to build bikes as fast as possible because it’s a lot of money for them and Discovery/TLC. It doesn’t mean they would not be able to do it right with more time…and less money.
