This $50,000 9/11 Memorial chopper was customed designed by Paul Teutul Jr.
of American Chopper, to commemorate the rebuilding of the World Trade Center and was presented by New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
It was commissioned by 9/11 Memorial Board member Daniel R.
Tishman and donated to the Memorial, while a second bike will be built and raffled off in January 2012, with proceeds benefiting the Memorial.
If you don’t want to hear Bloomberg doing the Easy Rider-born to ride speech, hit the five minute mark to hear Teutul Jr.
describe the bike which includes hand poured glass wheels, 24 carat gold plating and the gas tank that mimics Santiago Calatrava’s transportation hub.
