CNG Chopper

In conjunction with Chesapeake’s 20th anniversary, the talented crew from the hit TV show “American Chopper” partnered with the company to build this natural gas-powered bike. An episode of the show covered the bike’s production process as Paul Sr. and crew visited a drilling rig and learned how natural gas can power everything from a semitruck to a custom chopper.

The bike sports Orange County Chopper’s usual 117-cubic-inch V-twin engine, six-speed transmission and belt drive. Unlike other choppers, this one features a mixer "fogger" rather than a carburetor to feed gas to the engine. In addition, the chopper’s gas gauge reads in pounds per square inch instead of gallons.

It is adorned with drillbit-inspired handlebars and a Chesapeake-inspired blue-and-green paint job.
