Paul Teutul Jr. took the task of designing a custom motorcycle for the March of Dimes very seriously on "American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior" (Mon., 9 p.m. ET on Discovery). "We wanted it to be March of Dimes, but we also wanted it to have a little toughness," he explained at the unveiling.
The idea was to represent the venerable charity organization while at the same time making sure it was something people would want to buy, own and drive. While it had soft colors to represent the expectant mothers and children supported by the March of Dimes, it still managed to look cool and dangerous.
A representative from the March of Dimes spoke about what the motorcyle represented. "When people see the bike I hope they see more than the bike. I hope they realize the March of Dimes is there for them every single day doing research, helping moms stay pregnant and healthy and delivering healthy, happy babies. If the worst should befall them, we're there as well."
The March of Dimes has been focusing on helping mothers have healthy babies since 1938. Their first mission was to eradicate polio, which they accomplished in relatively short order. They remain committed to mothers and fighting a wide variety of birth defects and preventing infant mortality. It's certainly a worthy cause, and the bike well represents all those tough mothers and their tough babies.
See what they Teutuls come up with next on "American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior," every Monday night at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery.
