It's an online fan voting competition where riders, motorcycle lovers, and Orange County Choppers' fans from around the world can compete for a once in a lifetime experience — to design and help build their dream chopper alongside Paul Teutul Sr., along with the chance to appear on the show with the OCC crew.

"We're about ready to design your dream bike. If you're a real biker, I know you've got a dream bike in mind. This is your chance to join me on the show where, together, we'll build your dream chopper," Orange County Choppers founder Paul Teutul Sr. said in a press release.

The Dream Chopper competition is also a cause-based marketing campaign to benefit the Hudson Valley SPCA, which is an organization close to Teutul's heart, officials say.
