Not everything at the San Diego Comic Con revolves around super heroes and sexy cosplay girls. Sometimes awesome surprises are saved not for PAX or E3, but for Comic-Con. Today Paul Teutul Jr from Discovery Channel’s American Chopper revealed the custom bike he created for Epic Game’s Gears of War 3.
For those unfamiliar with American Chopper, it is a television show about a father and son team who build custom motorcyles for Orange County Choppers in New York State. Paul Sr and Paul Jr battle every week in screaming matches, but they still make time to create fantastic choppers for well known companies and celebrities.
The first thing I noticed on the bike was the huge back wheels. The rims that were made look like the COG Omen that is the symbol of the Gears of War franchise. If you look closely to the paint job, it perfectly matches the color, look and feel of the armor Marcus and the rest of Delta Squad wear. You can’t tell from the pics, but I would almost bet that there are also blue LED lights to make it glow.
This bike is one of two that were built. The one revealed today will more than likely be showcased at Epic Game’s headquarters in Cary, NC. The second bike will be given away in a Best Buy Sweepstakes as well as a trip to New York City for the Gears of War 3 Launch event.
If you would like to see how these bikes were created, you can set your DVRs to “American Chopper: Junior vs. Senior” on Sept. 19 and Sept. 26. which just happen to coincide with the release of the game on September 20. I know I’ll be watching and then stand in line for the midnight launch.
