Jesse James Shuts Down West Coast Choppers

10/19/2010 7:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse James' Southern California bike operation has officially hit the skids -- TMZ has confirmed the celebrity gearhead is shutting down the West Coast Choppers bike shop in Long Beach.

West Coast Choppers

Sources close to Jesse tell us ... James is living full-time in Texas and wants to focus on his shop out there.

WCC has been a staple in Long Beach since the early '90s. So far, no word on what Jesse plans to do with Cisco Burger - his burger joint located right next to the bike shop.

i dont understand the hate you guys are all sending him. jesse james if th BEST chopper fabricater there is. i dont ever post on these but this is stupi. Go watch the other shows. The frame just comes in all done. poof. Those people wouldnt even dare to try and do frames. Jesse does these from scratch. He does his own frames,tanks,wheels,metal working etc. No one is evem clsoe to his skill and he is one of the only ones to use the english wheel. You people really have no idea what your talking about. Jesse does everything in his house and the Whole bike is built by him. No out of hosue b.s He even paints his own bikes too! Jesse is hands down the best at making custom choppers and you people are pigheaded and obviously dont know how much skill it takes to make one of these.

Jesse James better hang his over-inflated ego on the wall and learn how to build more modern bikes if he wants to have a chance against Paul Senior and Junior.
Those "Simple-Simon" hard tails are lame and 10-years behind the times!

jessie got me into bikes first of all i dont much care for his curse words sometimes but people dont realize the time involved in fabracation and skill to produce one of a kind thumbprint creations.i still give the man respect the man for who he is being and exspert myself fighting the battlefield of iraq,airborne,and raised by a self man welder im sure i could compete with anyone with far less tools because of the thousands and thousands and thousands invested in myself by the united states gov just goes to show all of u stay in school and invest time with your family

just because he s having woman issues, doesnt mean he has to act like senior on occ, this may not work for future venues, monster garage part 2 could be good if he tries it, if he reads these, mabey do good things, plenty of negative, keep it positive, chow.

jesse first of all you should have won against the american chopper clan.. thier not true bikers in any sense of what a biker is... I was wondering if you could consider building me an old school chopper... I dont have that much cash but maybe you could make a dream of mine come true to have a kick ass bike by you.... your the best
