What happens when you combine two super cool things together? You get something like the Cadillac CTS-V choppers.
Created by the father-son team of Paul Teutel Sr. and Paul Teutel Jr., the Cadillac CTS-C chopper takes design elements from the Cadillac CTS-V car and low-lying bikes. The duo, who you may know from Discovery’s TV series American Chopper, wanted to bring the concept of the luxury sports coupe to the motorcycle, and as far as we can tell, they’ve succeeded.
Each member of the Teutel team brought a different vision for their bike. For Paul Jr.’s Cadillac CTS-C chopper, he put more emphasis on staying true to the style of the Cadillac CTS-V coupe car, while Paul Sr. focus was the V-twin engine on his motorcycle. On Paul Jr.’s bike, the use the black tail lights and the shape of back portion really stands out, and on Paul Sr.’s version, it takes on its own distinct styling. The common points on both bikes are the use of chrome trimmings and the black bodies.
Both bikes are set to be auctioned of for the Curing Duchenne charity ball. As for the popularity of the choppers, Paul Jr. is taking the lead, so this may mean it gets the higher price at auction. Bidding on the two bikes will continue until July 31, 2011 at 5:59 PM EST. You can pick your favorite on Discovery’s website.
