'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.

Been a follower from the beginning, all I can say is (SAME ON YOU BOTH PAUL SR AND PAUL JR) Paul Sr your suppose to be the dad so act like one. Paul Jr your a spoiled brat and you need to respect and honor your Father, you both have been blessed with a much better life than most of us who only pray that we could have that life. This house is divided and a house divided against itself cannot stand, you will see everything that you worked so hard for be destroyed because of greed and pride.
SHAME ON YOU BOTH.
Maybe only then will you both realize in the end all we have is our Family and God.

Sr. brags about not talking or having anything to do with any of his sons. So what does that tell you are they all spoiled with no talent or is Sr. just an ******* to work with and be around. Jr. was the one with the talent and if it wasn't for his designs OCC. would still be a small family company. Maybe his father should think about that the next time he heads to the bank!!!!!

LOOKING AT THE COMING SHOW CLIPS I SEE SR IS CALLING MIKIE, I DONT THINK HE SHOULD CALL BACK AFTER THE WAY HE WAS TAKEN OUT OF THE PLACE AND LEFT TO ROT, IF ITS NOT ALL 3 BOYS THEN NONE SHOULD BE WITH SR, HE NEEDS TO GROW UP AFTER 60.

Paul sr. has a serious metal issue, that needs to be dealt with. He struts around in his wife beater t-shirts. He never does anything to help. He nit picks over little issues. The only people he yells at are his two boys. He does not give his boys the opportunity to be themselves.

Sure, Jr. has an attitude, but it is only toward his ole man. These issue are from the ole mans past life. He raised these boys, you can see where he failed in his parenting. He has not yelled at one of the shop workers, since Jr and Mikey are gone.

Jr. will get his opportunity. It takes time to get the news out that Jr. is building the bikes. Anyone watching the shows knows Jr. built the most specialty bikes. I watched a show today, where Sr could not put a front end together. He let that nerd computer designer assemble on and Sr the other. They had to go out and purchase to new front end tubes.

I am behind Jr. and want to see him start getting a chance to start building soon.

Good luck Jr and Mikey

Senior was nothing but a ironworks guy, Jr made OCC and made senior all that money. Senoir needs to pay up the the 20% to Jr if he wants it all , senior is a thief if he thinks he can get away with what he's trying to do by stealing all of the profits.

The show always was a joke. A big time business man ( Sr ) & a top? designer dont know how to schedual a bike build after that many? Every bike is a crisis? No one can get a bike done on time? Jr cant make it to work on time? The cameras just happen to be there for every disaster? The suppliers cant get the parts to the shop on time?
The bikes are built from mail order parts & they still cant get them done on time. Paul Sr thinks screaming will build the bike? They tear thye doors off the office time & after time?
This is simply the producers at play.
Then the greed kicked in & they cant agree on who gets what.

I think we should feel for the person who did all the hard work, the person who built the bikes that made this show a hit. That person is Rick Petco, I hope he moves on to bigger and better things

It seems that Sr forgot that the team of Jr, Vinnie and Rick seemed to produce the bulk of the custom bikes that drove the popularity of the SHOW and thus the OVERALL financial performance of OCC.

SR. is a stupid evil minded jerk. What can he do besides bitch and threaton- nothing he can't design and he can't build. Without JR. who can design and build he is just a big mouth. I have sons about the age of JR. I would never treat them like he does JR. They wouldn't take it if I did, I am proud of them for that. SR. has a tough time comming and he deserves it.

So the company is worth zero (like anyone believes that.) They were given a pot of gold and like most folks, now they are ready to fight it out in a court of law - it's all about the money. They now have nice homes, a fat bank account, attractive women and an ego. Greed - an American tradition.

Sadly - this is life.
