Auction for the two Cadillac design-inspired custom motorcycles coming to an end

Article by Christian A., on July 25, 2011

The auction for the two Cadillac-inspired motorcycles from the “American Chopper” series will be ending on July 31. It will benefit the CureDuchenne non-profit organization. The bids for the two custom-built machines have so far reached more than $150,000.

It appears that more fans like Paul Jr.’s motorcycle with over 138,000 members joining his Facebook page. Bids for the chopper have exceeded $110,000. Meanwhile, Paul Sr.’s chopper has received bids that surpassed $50,000 with nearly 10,000 Facebook members joining its page.

What’s featured on Paul Teutul Sr.’s Cadillac-inspired chopper are a 160-hp diamond-cut and polished S&S wedge motor, some large Brembo brakes, an angular frame, handlebars and lighting, and a centered rear exhaust that’s quite comparable to that of the CTS Coupe.

In addition, the bike features other Cadillac design cues like a V-Series mesh tank area (which contains a nitrous-oxide system), V-series badges and a CTS clock on the center tank.

Paul Jr.’s chopper boasts a design that’s more fluid, blending curves around angular chevron design accents, side pipes, as well as black diamond paint with Cadillac V-Series insignia.

Furthermore, it features a Crazy Horse motor, air suspension, large yellow V-inspired brake calipers, and on its wide rear fender, it gets taillights and trunk badges from a CTS sedan.

In the past months, Duchenne kids have viewed the choppers at the facilities of Orange County Choppers and Paul Jr. Designs. It was at the General Motors Technical Center that the final choppers were shown off last June.
