Orange County Choppers AMG Bike

So hadn't really though about it, but Paul and Paul, Jr. both own SL55's. AMG asked them to build an "AMG Bike", which naturally they did.

They tooled over to Germany for a factory visit, drove a couple of really cool cars, and then came back home to build the bike - and AMG gave them an SL63 for "inspiration". Hurt me badly when Paul let his dog drool on the dash - so somewhere in upstate NY there's a '63 with a slightly stained dash for sale

Bike's going to be part of the 08/09 AMG tour, so yet another reason to try and make it!

I think my favorite was seeing an AMG engine on the Dyno getting burned it - "See it getting hot? Should be about 1000 C now." (5th row, 2nd and 3rd pictures)

Thank you much for the photos. The AMG logo is of the latest, ie., the A has a vertical right leg that aligns with the vertical M.
