Motorcycle Enthusiast Overcomes Tragedy and Wins a Custom Bike


Dream Chopper winner will work with Paul Teutul Sr. to build his unique bike

LEWES, DELAWARE, USA, June 16, 2022 / — 2022 Dream Chopper™ contest winner Paul DeMello will soon travel to the Orange County Choppers headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida to design a one-of-a-kind motorcycle alongside Paul Teutul Sr.

A lifelong motorcycle lover, DeMello didn’t acquire his first motorcycle until he was thirty-five. Then, at forty, he became the father of twins who were tragically lost in a drowning accident at a very young age. Paul has since established Just against child drowninga 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation to promote water safety and drowning prevention.

“Tragedy struck, and from that day on I wanted to help people,” he said.

While DeMello champions water safety, the Dream Chopper contest raises awareness of animal protection and humane law enforcement. Dream Chopper, LLC will donate a portion of the net proceeds from the contest to Hudson Valley SPCA. The non-profit, non-profit animal sanctuary is dedicated to rescuing, sheltering and advocating for animals while actively seeking loving homes for them. Paul Teutul Sr. and his partner, Joannie Kay, serve on the organization’s board of directors.

Over the next few months, DeMello will see his bike transform from sketches into a fully formed and powerful vehicle. The unveiling is expected to take place in 2023.

The 2022 Dream Chopper Contest is sponsored by:

• Biker Gear Club: tailor-made subscription box for bikers
• 100MPH: Apparel that features unique artwork for riders and racers
