    Cultural Event: "American Chopper" at NASA

    Here it comes! The boys from Discovery Channel's American Chopper take on the task of building a custom-motorcycle in tribute of the Space Shuttle.

    The first of two episodes, "Space Shuttle Tribute Bike I," premieres October 3. Schedule

    A video clip promo is currently available at Discovery Channel promos. If it doesn't play first, click the space-shuttle thumbnail.

    I don't like that design. It looks too much like a toy. They needed to evoke the shuttle--not imitate it. I would have had an ET shaped fuel tank, and forks/exhausts that were segmented like the SRBs, with the handlebars looking like escape towers to either side. This design wouldn't have looked quite so goofy.
