With the help of attention from a celebrity biker and his acclaimed TV show, the National Biodiesel Board will be promoting a custom-built motorcycle capable of running on biodiesel fuel the next few months.

CIMA Green, a renewable energy firm based in New Jersey, partnered with Paul Tetul Sr. of “American Chopper” to construct two high-performance motorcycles, which were completed in early February, according to Jessica Robinson, director of communications for the National Biodiesel Board. The firm subsequently donated one of the motorcycles to the National Biodiesel Board for their use as a promotional tool.

The National Biodiesel Board displayed the motorcycle at its main office on Clark Avenue on Friday afternoon.

“American Chopper” will feature the motorcycle in an episode Monday and on April 9.
