OCC Foundation. Stop The Violence Motorcycle Raffle.

For those who don’t know, The OCC Foundation is a New York not-for-profit corporation and is the charitable arm of the custom motorcycle shop, Orange County Choppers. It seeks to both maximize its charitable efforts by giving up to 100% of the money it raises each year to qualified charities and wants to give its supporters a voice in selecting deserving charities.

The foundation is currently working with the FBI to raise money to benefit the opening of the Center Of Hope in the OCC hometown of Newburgh, NY. The Center for HOPE will be a safe alternative for at-risk youth subjected to daily violence and gang activity right outside their homes. It will be a place for youth and parents to interact and strengthen relationships.
..
To raise money, the OCC  Foundation announced a motorcycle raffle and is selling 10,000 tickets at $20 each. They are available for purchase through the Police Chiefs’ Association of Orange County and its partners, including Orange County Choppers. Tickets can be purchased at the OCC Retail Store & Showrooom at 14 Crossroads Court, Newburgh, NY, by calling toll-free to 1-877-608-BIKE or at  The OCC Foundation. In addition to the ‘Stop the Violence’ chopper, Orange County Choppers is building a custom FBI themed bike which will debut on American Chopper on TLC on Thursday, September 23 at 9pm ET/PT. The ‘Stop the Violence’ Greenie bike will be on display for the length of the raffle in OCC’s Retail Store and Showroom and the raffle drawing will take place there on March 19, 2011.

    There ought to be a law requiring all throttle cables be hidden within the handlebar.
    To not do so, imo, is pure laziness.

    This bike is hideous.

    Lighten up guys. It was one of their production bikes. Trying to raise $200,000 for charity. This is a bad thing?

    Stop the violence? From folks who made a career of smashing holes in door & walls, throwing chairs, screaming in each other’s faces? Like having Charlie Sheen raising money to get rid of crackwhores.

    not only does this seem good,most riders (at least the ones I know) have no problem helping the little people become bigger people.focus on the cause and help if you can whether with this auction or in your back yard. good job occ.the little ones count the most.

    Good on you, OCC! The cause seems very worthy, and I think this fund-raising bike is a refreshing change from all the clones out there, while still retaining a cool “old skool” look.

    I take back all the negative things I said about their bikes. I will never call them boat anchors again. These guys are first rate. ..Z

    Push/Pull cables are required by law, dunno if you’ll be able to hide them inside the bars.

    Quite ironic given Snr’s propensity for threatening behaviour.

    Foundations….. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm…???

    Have always been leery of Foundations.
    Just an example, The Clinton Foundation:

    “…Bill Clinton joined Giustra on a 2005 trip to Kazakhstan; within days after the pair met with Kazakhstan’s president, Giustra’s business lined up preliminary deals giving it rights to buy into uranium projects controlled by a Kazakhstan state-owned enterprise. Bill Clinton has said he had nothing to do with that…”

    -Tax loopholes…???
    – Liability limitations….???
    -Jobs for family members…???
    – etc….

    An OCC Foundation….. What’s the business case?

    -nicker-

    wow,it is always amazing to me that there is always sombody who has got to be negative about something like this. This whole thing is a positive step in the right direction and we all need to be doing things like this. Todays youth needs positive reinforcement and say what you will about OCC,they just continue to give and give to those in need. Hats off to a great cause.

    Neo Dutch,

    FYI: Push/Pull cables are not required by law ….. this is a myth that has been around the industry for years. The only requirement for a carb throttle is that “when using a single handlebar throttle cable the incorporated carburetor assembly used must have a positive return mechanism incorporated within it …” in other words a spring return or similar mechanism. I haven’t used Push/Pull cables since I started using the Mikuni Carb over 10 years ago.

    Over & Out,

    Jeff

  15. 15 Chief Waldo Feb 21st, 2011 at 11:32 am

    So, is Senior using the money for therapy sessions?

  16. 16 Geno Feb 21st, 2011 at 11:51 am

    HD does it too makes no sense
    and this bike is typical OCC out of touch ugly kit bike looking crap

    that present day 3 stooges show needs to fade away

  17. 17 SCOTT Feb 21st, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    I like the bike and love the cause, good job guys.

  18. 18 Larry Kennedy Feb 21st, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    Hmm, looks to me like its open to people of any state. At least the entry form has all the state’s names available from the pull-down menu. Well, at least MY state, CA, is on it, I didn’t really check to see if all of the states were.

    It is an ugly bike, but there’s well over $20 of good parts on it, IMHO.

    It is nice to see that OCC is continuing to help charities in this down economy. That says a lot about Paul Sr. & OCC.
