Default American Chopper Cancelled....

After 8 seasons and several problems at Orange County Choppers, TLC pulled the plug and it will no longer air on TV period. The last air date was Febuary 9, 2010 (No exactly sure of the day, but accurate month). Paul Jr. and Mickey left it seems the company has been going staedily down hill ever since. The last show I watched they built a Hybrid Motorcylce and it looked sharp yes, but in the end it looked like a custom painted harley you can get just about anywhere. That is NOT what made O.C.C. at all. I look for them to go out of business here before long. It looks like West Coast Choppers (Jesse James) has won the motorcycle war to me.

it seems like its been going downhill ever since they left the discovery channel. It seemed to me like they lost their touch, the bikes were all starting to look the same

Well with Jesse James not being able to keep it in his pants, his business will probably be gone after Sandra gets done with him. He's not messing around with a porn star or stripper this time...

She makes more money than he does, so he will not have to pay her alimony, also is is a biker, I don't think this has tarnished his image. His business will do just fine.

They defienetly got into the the whole bitching at each other way too much. I think at first it helped their ratings so they did it more and more and then every one got sick of it.

I know the difference between the two, I was a big fan of both their shows. I was commenting on knightmare1015's post. I agree with knightmare1015 about Jesse's bikes. I prefer a WCC over an OCC.

But she is a woman scorned and she can take him to the cleaners regardless. Divorce is not a simple manner of money. I've seen guys in the same circumstances get cleaned out and living in their car after a divorce. Will have to see if Sandra is as nice as everyone think she is.

ooooold news. lol. doesn't really mean anything to me. I always thought they were a disfunctional family from day 1 anyway. At least that's how they edited the show to make it look like. Hearing about Sr. sueing Jr. for quitting only confirmed my thoughts.

I use to watch OCC, but after a while the show just started to annoy me.

Seeing as they signed a prenup no one is getting anything from the other person.

Well Sr is suing Jr for copyright infringements. ALL of Sr's children doesn't want anything to do with him at all. Including the ones we didn't see hardly at all. If he'd quit bitching and got down to some work they'd do better than most chopper shops. I think that when Vinny and Cody left is when thing started going down hill. If he loses Rick Petco he's screwed. That's about the only metal worker he's got left. You can only build the same bike so many times. when they quit doing fab work, they lost their edge.

It was only a matter of time. The show has been going down hill for a while.
