Newmont Mining

American Chopper April 16 "A Meeting Is Set"

This week on American Chopper Sr. builds an era correct chopper out of the '70s and Jr. digs for gold.

Lisa and Mike from My Pillow, Inc. drop by OCC for a custom pillow bike. They show off a cool new pillow that will hold its shape even with a 12 pound head. Unfortunately Jr.'s head is more like 18 lbs. I'm thinking Jason will make the pillow bike cloud like, but it turns out Michael Lindell wants something straight out of the '70s. Sr. should just sell him one of his classic bikes he's got laying around his garage museum. The company requests a 1970s bike with a long, long springer front end, and at 12.5 feet long it's twice as long as my bike! It's even longer then my boat. According to Sr. for the geometry to work on the '70s bike, it needs wide handle bars for something that radical.

At PJD work on the Newmont Mining bike continues. The engine cover was born out of solid 2 inch thick billet aluminum and mined out on the CNC machine to give it a terraced look to match the features of an open pit mine. But why is Paul Jr.'s logo in the middle of the engine cover? Jr. wants gold, gold, silver, and more gold. I'm wondering how this will compare to the Gold Donald Trump bike.

Meanwhile, Vinnie and Rick meet up for lunch and hope that it won't be long before they're building bikes together again.
