OCC is best known for their extravagant chopper designs. A chopper is a type of motorcycle that was modified from an original motorcycle design or custom made. A chopper will have a longer frame accompanied by a stretch front end. Clearly not being an expert on Choppers I'll just say I'm very impressed by the workmanship and design of these machines.
Not only does Paul Sr. know how to design and build choppers, he has very good business savvy and keeps his brand in the limelight.
