My office with the school district is housed in one of our two area high schools. Yesterday, the Patriot Chopper, built by Orange County Choppers of NY, made a visit to our building, and everyone was invited to come down and check it out.
Orange County Choppers is a TV program on the Discovery Channel. In Season 5, in episodes 1 and 2, they built the Patriot Chopper for the National Guard. The National Guard uses the chopper as a recruitment tool as the chopper travels the country. It is most certainly an impressive piece of machinery!
Check out the handlebars — an ammunition belt:
The body also showcases a minuteman air cleaner:
And the exhaust!
The spokes of the wheels feature 3-D inlaid spearheads, which represent the seven Army values. Chromed M-4 magazines serve as the struts. On the side of the rear wheel a M-4 carbine is mounted. If you’d like to learn more about this chopper, just give it a google and there will be plenty to read up on.
And lastly, a very nice student was volunteered by me to show that Fight to Finish Photography loves the Patriot Chopper, and the Patriot Chopper loves us!
