Under the guidance of Paul Teutul Sr., the exploits of OCC became a sensation for nearly a decade, effectively creating the world of reality television. Week after week, the shop produced one outrageous themed creation after another, pushing the boundaries of motorcycle design.
Sporting the “Texas Strong” banner, the long, lean custom chopper features red, white and blue regalia. The 124-inch twin-cam, six-speed bike has a tricked-out rear fender, syringe exhaust, unique gas tank andother one-off features.
Gallery Furniture -- the setting for the event -- and the McIngvale family provided extensive community support during Harvey. Gallery opened its doors to provide food and shelter to those in greatest need.
