VIDEO: Stealth bomber chopper hits the road, airwaves



Northrop Grumman rolled out the Orange County Chopper-designed motorcycle variant of the B-2 in January, but is rolling it out again for TV next week.

(No word on whether the stealth bike — lamely named the “Spirit of Innovation” — is invisible on speed radar.)

The making of the bike will be aired on the season premier of Orange County Choppers on April 9. The bike will also appear at air shows, industry events and military bases throughout the year.

    Gee, Is there a defense project that the OCC guys don’t pander to? Does anyone remember when they made the ‘Commanche’ bike? I nearly regurgatated my corn chips when I saw that episode. The whole kitten-kaboodle was well on its way to cancellation already but let not that stop thee now!

    Is this what is called patriotism nowadays? Who cares about the soldier’s and marine’s stories… we’ve got a great narrative about a piece of technology to advertise!!!

    Oh brother!

    Its not that the bike isn’t steathly so much as the 300# guy running it with a German Helmet

    I’d be worried about its ‘stealth’ paintwork getting all scratched up as the Japanese sports bikes leave it in their dust moving away from the lights. I doubt it’ll move quick enough to threaten a speed camera!
