Supposedly Mr. Smith had a 50 MPH wreck on the bike during filming...

Heh.... Maybe he should have taken the MSF course and practiced a bit before playing around on a bike of that power.... hmmm....

Actually, the bike looks like the Ducati 999. Maybe someone can post a picture of it here - I haven't figured out how to do that yet :oops:


But speaking of iROBOT bikes, did any of you watch the episode of American Choppers (Disc channel), where O.C.C. did the iROBOT bike for Will Smith?? Talk about a SWEEEEEET Chopper! :D

It looks pretty nice. I just don't like the tail section. It looks bad ass all black too.

American Chopper built a motorcycle for the premiere of I Robot too. How was the movie by the way?

It's a MV Agusta F4. Not a Ducati. Not a CBR. It is Italian.

Haven't seen the movie yet, myself.

Are you sure we're not talking about the same show with building the bikes? The Tuttles (sp?) - of O.C.C. - took theirs to the actual movie premier and presented it to Will Smith before the opening. American Chopper IS the name of the series that features Orange County Choppers... :)

Here's a pic:

Yeah, You are right, it was OCC that built the bike, but it was an American Chopper episode on Discovery channel. Mikey Tuttle makes me laugh. Did he ever pass the MSF course or get his license yet?

I've seen Mikey riding in the last few episodes, but they never showed if he took the class again or took his test again...

The I Robot bike looks great, but I bet that gas tank only holds about a 1/2 gallon of gas!!! :?

I've watched American Chopper too. But you got to wonder how these bikes hold up in the long run. One off parts and welding vs. Production tested parts and welding process.

I saw OCC a month ago in Lake George. Up close, I wasn't as impressed as I thought I was gonna be. They just looked like "some bike," to me. I don't know, to me if you are going to make something it has to serve a purpose. I don't feel like what they make really serves any purpose. Maybe I'm just being negative but their stuff gets so crazy I can't justify how we can all think its cool to make a virtually useless machine. :(

Mikey hasn't taken or passed the test yet. Still doesn't have his license.

Yeah, I like watching the show, but I wouldn't ever want one of their bikes.

Does anyone watch the Great Biker Build-off shows? I think they are also on Discovery. Russell Mitchell of Exile bikes built a kick ass bike... :shock:

I'll try to find a good pic of it to post...

Here is a link that'll take you to a nice little video clip that gives you a close up look at different parts of the bike as well as a 360 view...

Click on the Russell Mitchell one...

I remember watching that episode on Great Biker Build-off. Didn't that bike have an integrated clutch or something like that? I think I also remember that the rear fender was mounted to close to the top of the tire and destroyed the tire and fender... had to be replaced after like 400 miles. Also, if this is the same bike - I thought he only got 70 mpg. Still love the bike though!

These choppers are built so low to the ground, that you can't lean with the bike at all - it will start scraping the ground immediately - very disfunctional bikes, they are purely for show. :cry:
I like the way they look, but what's the point if you can't really use them for real riding? :cry:
Chopper guys also don't use protective gear - another big negative point for them :evil:

I heard one of the Chopper guys couldn't even ride a bike for SOOOO long because he was so bad. I guess their more mechanics than riders. :|

Yeah, the clutch was integrated to the left handlebar. It operates just like the throttle. Twist to disengage, release to re-engage. Pretty clever idea.

I disagree that O.C.C. choppers are worthless machines. Considering that this is - what? - their 3rd season or so, don't you think that the "associated press" would have got wind of a law suit or a dissatisfied customer LONG before now, considering how widespread the American Chopper series has become, and how costly their bikes are? Their bikes are getting national recognition. And while they are "theme" bikes, I have no doubt they are completely functional... but only on the SHORT haul. Because of all the exceptions that are needed while building, to allow for their design structure, I don't think their bikes are practical for the long, cross-country rides. Either way, they DO have to pass state inspections, right? How else do they get registered? :?

TL chris

Bikes like those usually get registered as a kit vehicle. Kinda like a buy it and put it together yourself. I don't know about insurance but the do need to get registered if you plan to ride them around. Most of OCC's bike are just for show, so they probably don't even bother with plate mounts and stuff like that.

Consider it a warning sign that what you're about to read is coming from a whacked out mind.

I remember when the Tuttles were on Leno (the episode after they unveiled the bike), Jay commented that his bike had died while on the road. As it turned out, O.C.C. wired their bikes through the headlight. Jay's headlight went, the bike would no longer run until fixed.
