Orange County Choppers is now expanding. They will be selling bikes through their own stores.

What's your take on this? Will it be big?

Orange County Choppers gets OK from Blackman board (http://www.mlive.com/business/jacitpat/index.ssf?/base/news-18/1157126736116310.xml&coll=3) - It won't be long until an official Orange County Chopper sign goes up at 2804 Wildwood Ave. at the former Blackman Township fire station.

Dealership owners, Jim Corcoran and Gary and Don Huff, plan to open in early December.

They got the OK Monday from the Blackman Township Board to go ahead. The board granted a conditional-use permit, with the only condition that there be no outdoor displays or sales.

"We've been remodeling and painting," Gary Huff said. "We're working on a hundred things right now. It's all mind-boggling."

Orange County Choppers, headquartered in New York, is featured on the Discovery Channel's "American Chopper." Until now, the company has made only one-of-a-kind choppers, but is expanding to production models. The local store will open with three of the manufacturer's first production-line motorcycles. Only 100 will be produced in the first year, Gary Huff said. Eventually, they may carry other lines of bikes.

The store's big draw will be the apparel, Huff said.
