American Chopper Cadillac Bikes Auction Update

Meant to benefit the CureDuchenne non-profit organization, the auction for the two Cadillac-inspired motorcycles from the “American Chopper” series is coming to an end on July 31st. So far, the auction has attracted bids in excess of $150,000 for the two custom-built machines.

By now, Paul Jr.’s motorcycle has the time to emerge as favorite among fans with more than 138,000 members joining his Facebook page and bids for his chopper topping $110,000. On the other hand, bids for Paul Sr.’s chopper have topped $50,000 with almost 10,000 Facebook members.

Paul Teutul Sr.’s Cadillac-inspired chopper features a 160-hp diamond-cut and polished S&S wedge motor, large Brembo brakes, an angular frame, handlebars and lighting, and a centered rear exhaust similar to the CTS Coupe. The bike also features other Cadillac design cues, including a V-Series mesh tank area (containing a nitrous-oxide system), V-series badges and a CTS clock on the center tank.

Paul Jr.’s chopper has a more fluid design, blending curves around angular chevron design accents, side pipes and black diamond paint with Cadillac V-Series insignia. It also has a Crazy Horse motor, air suspension, large yellow V-inspired brake calipers, and taillights and trunk badges from a CTS sedan on the wide rear fender.

Over the months, the show has featured visits from Duchenne kids at the facilities of Orange County Choppers and Paul Jr. Designs, and the General Motors Technical Center, where the final choppers were unveiled last June.

“You guys captured all of the design cues we work so hard in the studio to create and you’ve put it together in a very expressive way,” GM Vice President of Global Product Design Ed Welburn said at the unveiling. “The fact that they both look very different but are both very obviously Cadillac-inspired is very cool because it shows the breadth of Cadillac design.”
