Siemens Smart Chopper charity vote

The Siemens Smart Chopper, Orange County Choppers’ first custom electric motorcycle featured on American Chopper, is being donated to a charity organization, but which organization it will be is up to you! Since first unveiled in August, the Siemens Smart Chopper has been touring the country, participating in trade shows and events with Siemens.

"We wanted to build this unique chopper to raise environmental awareness and reflect what the 69,000 employees of Siemens USA are doing to help America stay on the cutting edge of tomorrow’s green economy," said Daryl Dulaney, President & CEO of Siemens Building Technologies.

"Siemens is already very much a part of the fabric of America, and our portfolio is one of the greenest in the business. Green is not marketing hype for us; it is in our DNA."

Starting Monday, December 14th, three charities – 1) the American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2) Earth Day Network and 3) Keep America Beautiful – will be competing for online votes to win the Smart Chopper. Voting will be open until April 14th, 2010, so get your charity votes in today here.
