With the support of his friends and family, Nicholas Volpe has won Dream Chopper 2021. The 58-year-old, who has been riding since the age of 9 when his parents bought him a minibike, says his greatest memories are of riding with friends. Nicholas will work 1-on-1 with Paul Teutul Sr. to design and create a one-of-a-kind motorcycle that is unlike anything else. Once his Dream Chopper is complete, Nicholas is looking forward to hitting the road and showing off his new bike at Daytona Bike Week!
The Dream Chopper competition is proud to donate a portion of the proceeds to Hudson Valley SPCA, a no-kill animal shelter that aims to lead the fight against animal abuse by providing caring services for each animal while actively finding their forever homes. This is our second year supporting the organization, and we look forward to more to come!
"The last donation literally saved the shelter. With COVID, we were unable to do the 5 big fundraisers we do every year, and donations were down by 40%." – Joan Kay, president of HVSPCA
We would like to thank everyone who participated in the Dream Chopper competition. Thousands of riders and bike enthusiasts joined together to compete for the ultimate prize — a custom dream chopper designed and built alongside the legendary Paul Teutul Sr. and the Orange County Choppers crew. We’ve loved hearing your stories and watching everyone come together as a community. It’s been a helluva ride, and we look forward to seeing you all next year!
