Both records pertain to battery powered motorcycles. The specially designed OCC Drag Bike will be unveiled at the 2010 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, SD held August 9th thru the 15th. Our new bike will be powered by a series of rechargeable batteries creating an excess of 600 horsepower. The AEK, Aaron Equipment and Lawless logos are positioned prominently on the body. In addition, the AEK and Aaron Equipment logos will be displayed as a backdrop to the bike built in OCC’s shop. The bike will be introduced in a two-part episode slated to air on American Chopper this coming this fall. OCC invited us to partner with them on this project because of our past relationship and for what this bike represents. Like our companies, the new Drag Bike exemplifies: Speed – We provide the fastest ‘Go to Market’ solutions. Technology - We have developed and we utilize the latest information based technology in order to manage, source and sell process and packaging equipment. Green - The used equipment industry is one of the original recyclers..... Long before it became in vogue.

The Aaron Bike Unveiling Party

by AaronEquipmentCo18. September 2008 17:12
Aaron Equipment Gets Latest Revved-Up, Custom-Built Bike from Orange County Choppers BENSENVILLE, IL — The newest custom bike will be unveiled from Orange County Choppers, the star bike builders of TLC's hit show American Chopper. The invitation-only event will take place Thursday, Sept. 18. The bike was created for Aaron Equipment, headquartered in Bensenville. Aaron is an international buyer, seller and trader of used and reconditioned process equipment. The chopper will be featured on an upcoming episode of American Chopper, airing at 9 p.m. EST on TLC. Teaming up with Orange County Choppers' famous Teutul family – Paul Sr. and sons Paul Jr. and Mikey – came as a natural fit for Aaron Equipment, since both companies develop innovative solutions for their customers, and both are family run. "Everyone at Aaron is passionate about what we do, just like everyone at Orange County Choppers. That's one of the main reasons we wanted to build a bike with them," said Michael Cohen, one of the owners of Aaron Equipment. The design and build process, along with the unveiling of the Aaron bike will be in the TV program. The chopper will be available for viewing soon at www.aaronequipment.com/AaronBike.html. The Teutuls drew inspiration for the chopper by visiting Aaron’s massive North American headquarters, which has more than 30 acres of used and reconditioned process equipment. Everything from centrifuges and heat exchangers to mixers, plastic extruders, and tanks is available, making up one of the largest inventories of process equipment in the industry. "Customers often come in and tell us 'I feel like a kid in a candy store,'" said Cohen. The chopper's custom appearance includes a gas tank designed to look like a pressure vessel, and equipment-inspired looks for the exhaust, spokes, and other bike components. The bright blue and orange of Aaron’s logo make up the color scheme.   Aaron Equipment provides customers in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, plastics, chemical, and other industries with quality process equipment and dependable service. For information, visit www.aaronequipment.com, or call 630-350-2200.
