They’re billing it as America’s first renewable energy chopper that runs on E85. It was unveiled today at the Iowa Speedway by Iowa Farm Bureau. The bike was built in partnership between IFB and Orange County Choppers. I’ve got the press conference recorded and will update this post later with it. Right now I’ve got to get out on the track for pre-race activities.
Post Update: Here’s the audio from the press conference: [audio:http://www.zimmcomm.biz/epic/iowa-corn-07-e85-chopper.mp3]
This chopper project is part of an IFB-led movement called “Join the Ride Iowa.” This chopper will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the American Lung Association of Iowa.
