'American Chopper' -- It's Over!

2/6/2010 3:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

American Chopper"American Chopper" is ending its run on TLC and the crazy Teutul family will ride their bikes off into the sunset.

This Thursday's episode will be the series finale of the show. A rep for TLC tells us, "The Teutuls will always be a part of the Discovery family and we congratulate them on a tremendously successful series run."

The move is not entirely unexpected -- as we reported in December, Paul Teutul, Sr. is suing his son Paul over the family business, Orange County Choppers.

The last episode airs February 11 at 9:00 PM.

Oh no, it can't be true, certainly when we just learned that Paul Jr. is going to be making dog toys. This is a cliff hanger that I just don't want to miss! I was anticipating future shows where Paul Jr. would be designing Tampons, gel insoles and kitty litter.
Discovery is making a big mistake. We will miss future shows where Mikey becomes the spokesman for SHAMWOW SWEAT WIPES and Paulie Sr. becomes head Ambassador to the U.N.

Paul Jr. is a bike designer.
He's not likely going to make a living with Paul Jr. Designs
doing grills and dog toys.

When the finances of OCC are resolved and the no-compete
issue expires, Paul Jr can go back to bike designing/building
on a smaller scale and make a decent living.

The old man acts like a child..I would believe he treated the sons like that before TLC got involved...Why is TLC blamed for people breakups?Heck if I had a chance I would welcome TLC....

Mikey and Jr are lazy spoiled asses living off of Daddy's hard work, experience and success. Their heads got way to big and they did not have the real life experience and maturity to handle it. Life will be hard when they have to figure out it's not all about them. Sr was way to generous with them when they did not perform or hold up their end of the job. Neither will ever achieve anything resembling success on their own.
Look for both these lazy soon to be looses in celebrity rehab within 5 years.

It's kind of sad that the show is ending just like that. No resolution, no nothing.

The show was amazing the first few seasons. Loved watching them build bikes, their crazy antics, and watching them enjoy their success. The dynamics seemed to change at some point. The new shop was built, they no longer built the bikes from scratch, they no longer used local vendors for help. The small town, chopper maker was too Hollywood and the same people no longer related to everyone.

I used to go to the fundraisers they would hold at their original retail location. Sr,, Jr, Mikey, Vinny, Rick and Coty were so nice to everyone. The last time I went to an event at the new place, nobody except Rick was friendly. Mikey was probably the least friendly which I found kind of surprising.

Have to admit, I am kind of sad it's ending like this.

The show was better when it was promoted as a famiy company. Jr was the most creative one of the three. Sr. let businessmen take over operations, a new wife with her family become part of the focus, coupled with his bad temper then let things go to his head. Sr. destroyed the company and his family. Had not watched the series in years and saw it the other night.
Once the company begins to fail the businessmen and wife will fade away. Sr will be left to deal with his sons one way or the other as he becomes older and senile. Jr will still have a creative venue and future.

fame DID o to their heads!

remember, as they're success grew, they threw out a practically new leather couch 9 thru a window, yet, w. both tutles laughing manically,...like powr hungry/crazed! a resonable person would have given it to charity, etc!

Also, they always made it seen like they would create these 'theme bikes', like the fireman's bike, & the 9- 11 tribute bike, as heartfelt gifts to mankind,...when it was simple to gain them greatewr business/fame!!

paul jr's wife looked like she married him for money,....and, predictiojn, 1 or both tutles will fall back into drug addition, like they were before fame!

i stopped watching when fame went to theirs heads ( they destroyed other valuable things, trucks, etc., on whim that w. make a poor person scream/cringe!!!!
they deserve failure again !!!
