American Choppers last episode.

The series American Chopper is ending with the last episode coming up.
I have been one of its critics but have to say I'm sad to see it go.
Feel like I'm part if that big disfuctional family after watching it off and on for ten years.
R.I.P American Choppers (Orange County Choppers).

It's nice to read some good news. Thanks!

I predict a rapid and extreme decline in the popularity of "custom" bikes.

When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.
It is the same when you are stupid

Followed by a rapid decline in there value.
Personally when I see some guy riding a boutique chopper the only think comes to mind is the money he waisted on that thing.
When I see a other guy who cobbled together a chopper or custom himself I think "that's cool".

Filmed in Orange County NY...and in the Village of Montgomery where they lived and the original shop was located. They are known as the Cobblers (not a compliment) I for one am not sad to see it go.They all made a butt load of money.......

I was recently at their store in Newburg. They tried to go upscale by having a Ducati franchise, but that's now gone. That space is being turned into a cafe. I spotted the Lance Armstrong chopper. I wonder if they will repaint the bike and remove his titles.

Not sorry to see that go. I live a few miles from both places. Amazing the empire they created anyway. I was very surprised to see Ducati in there for a minute. There is a Ducati, Triumph, Bimota dealer down the road that has been there forever, filled with racers and guys who actually know what they are doing. I really don't think I'd want the OC guys spinning spanners on my Ducati.

What a piece of crap. Glad it's gone.
