Chopper

It's big, it's loud, it's... green?

Paul Teutul Sr., founder of Orange County Choppers and star of American Chopper, was in Columbus Circle Wednesday showing off his new electric motorcycle.

Made as a joint effort between OCC and Siemens, an energy company, the "Smart Chopper" can go about 60 miles after a five-hour charge, whereas the New York Daily News reports a "gas-powered chopper costs about $10 to fill at a pump and can get 120 miles on a full tank."
