Unique bike comes to town

March 14, 2006

Albany -- Ever seen a motorcycle worth $100,000? One made a special visit to Albany, raising money for a good cause.

A custom made hog by Orange County Choppers was on display at Airgas South on Gillionville Road. American Chopper, a popular TV show on the Discovery Channel, uses welding and gas supplies provided by Airgas, so Orange County Choppers made the custom chopper for them.

And it attracted lots of attention. The machine was in town "To commemorate the first 25 years existence of the corporation, and to help raise money for Cystic Fibrosis," said Airgas Branch Manager Kelly Glenn.

Even $100,000 custom made motorcycles can have problems. The Airgas chopper's battery was dead when we went by, so they could not crank it.
