Cherokee Casino Chopper Giveaway

It was a case of motorcycle madness at the Cherokee Casino in Catoosa Friday as hundreds of people turned out for the Cherokee Chopper giveaway.

The News on 6 arrived in our own "Chopper", SkyNews 6, and got a look at the whole show from above.

The Cherokee Chopper is a one-of-a-kind, custom made masterpiece from the world-famous Orange County Choppers, which is the setting for the popular Discovery Channel show "American Chopper".

Mikey and Vinnie, two of the stars of American Chopper were there in person in Catoosa to meet and greet the fans.

Those who watch the show know that Vinnie is the master mechanic who does all the work, while Mikey is the comic relief with a fondness for bubble wrap and goofing off. The two signed autographs and were on stage to turn the key when 87-year-old Orville Baker of Claremore won the Cherokee Chopper. We asked Mikey if he's ever surprised by his fame. “The reason the show works so well is that you don't get anything fake and people at home watching TV, they can always tell whether or not the truth is coming through."

There are actually two Cherokee Choppers. One will stay on display at the casino.
