'American Chopper' Star Ol' Paul Teutul Has a Farm ... But Needs A Bigger One!!!

Paul Teutul Sr. wants to ride off into the sunset with more land and more animals, but he's gotta unload his old ranch first, so he slashed the price ... TMZ has learned.

The "American Chopper" star recently dropped asking price from $2.9 million to $2.5 mil for his 38-plus-acre upstate New York spread. We're told he's on the hunt for a place with more land for his rescue animals. Fun fact about Paul ... he's VP of the Hudson Valley SPCA.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

Paul originally put the Montgomery, NY home on the market in Oct. It's got 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, attached pool house and, of course, the pool ... complete with slide and waterfall! His listing agent is Seta Tunell with Ellis Sotheby's International Realty.

The home was frequently featured on 'Chopper' ... which, btw, is coming back to TV this February after a 5-year hiatus. We're told Paul's animal rescue operation -- with mini-horses, donkeys and alpacas -- will be prominently featured.

'American Choppers' Stars They Stole My Wheelchair Bike! Claims Disabled Man

The guys from "American Choppers" got major props for creating a wheelchair-accessible motorcycle -- only problem is they allegedly stole the concept from a disabled biker, and cut the poor guy out of the deal.

Christ Tavantzis -- who suffers from polio -- claims he patented the modified 3-wheeler and pitched it to 'AC' stars Mike and Paul Teutul Jr. at a bike show in 2008.

Now Tavantzis is suing the Tuetul bros because he says they went ahead and built their own version of his trike -- without him -- and then unveiled it at a charity event for the Chris and Dana Reeves Foundation ... where they were lauded for the creation.

In his suit, Tavantzis says it's bad enough polio has taken away his physical abilities -- but now he has to fight to protect his thoughts and ideas too. He's suing for fraud, conspiracy, and discrimination against people with disabilities.

We've reached out to reps for the show ... so far, no response.

'Chopper' Star -- I Still Love My Wedding-Skipping Dad

"American Chopper" star Paul Teutul Jr. claims he still loves his father -- fellow "Chopper" star Paul Teutul Sr. -- despite the fact that Big Paul blew off his son's wedding last weekend.

Junior tells TMZ, "It's always sad when a father doesn't come to his own son's wedding, but I still love him, and the truth of the matter is it was an absolutely perfect day and I wouldn't have changed anything."

As we previously reported, the two Pauls haven't been on good terms in a while ... after they clashed over their motorcycle business.

We reached out to Paul Sr. -- but the big mustache refused to comment.

'American Chopper' Star Weds, Dad a No-Show

Paul Teutul, Jr. tied the knot this weekend in front of 135 people in New Jersey -- but none of them were his father, "American Chopper" co-star Paul Teutul Sr.

Junior and his bride Rachael married at Bonnet Island Estate in Bonnet Island, NJ. Crazy wedding details included: $28,000 in flower arrangements, a six-tier pink velvet cake with lemon buttercream that featured handmade sugar flowers to match the floral design, and a post-ceremony butterfly release under an arched trellis garden while the strings played "Here Comes the Sun."

Junior and Senior have been in an ongoing legal battle for months now and, according to sources, Senior was invited ... but didn't attend.

Death at 'American Chopper' Son's Bike Shop

A man died this morning after falling through the roof at a New York motorcycle shop owned by "American Chopper" star Paul Teutul Jr. ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed that cops are still on scene. We're told someone at the shop called 911 around 8:30 AM to report that someone "fell through the roof."

We're told none of the regular shop employees were inside the building at the time.

But here's the catch -- Junior has recruited a bunch of disgruntled employees who left his dad's place ... including his brother Mikey Teutul and friends Vinnie DiMartino, Robert "Nub" Collard and Joe Puliafico.

We're told Senior has no idea about the mutiny ... that is, until now.
