American Chopper Comes to the End of the Road Comes


American Chopper is riding off into the sunset for good.


The TLC reality series is closing shop after six seasons, with the series finale airing Thursday, Feb. 11 at 9/8c.


Chopper premiered in 2003 on the Discovery Channel before moving to TLC in 2008. The series followed founder Paul Teutul, Sr., and his son, Paul Jr. (better known as Paulie or Junior) and the drama behind the scenes at their custom motorcycle shop, Orange County Choppers. "The Teutuls will always be a part of the Discovery family and we congratulate them on a tremendously successful series run," TLC said in a statement.


Paul Teutul, Sr., said he anticipated "another two or three years" of the show in an October interview with the New York Daily News. However, Paul Jr., left the company - and the series - briefly earlier this season and was then sued by his father over company stock in December, according to TMZ.

well done snr , way to go and ruin everything. you turned your back on your sons and now tlc is turning their back on you. if paulie and mikey were still part of the show , you'd get another 2 or 3 seasons easily.and the whole incident with vinnie kick started your downfall. instead of being a money grabberyou should have given him a raise and spread the wealth around a bit. instead, you became selfish towards everyone and especially your son paulie, who practically made you what you are.lets face it, he was the real genius behind the bikes to begin with. expect all and any theme bikes to cease production.if you dont have a tv crew behind you and an outlet for companies toadvertise , your special one-off bikes are a thing of the past. R.I.P occ.
