Sadly, family legal problems between the Teutul family have probably resulted more than anything in the decision to end the very popular TLC motorcycle customizing reality series, AMERICAN CHOPPER. The last episode will air on February 11.
Back in December, legal problems between Paul Teutul, Sr. and Jr. resulted in a lawsuit by the father against the son for control of the Orange County Choppers business in New York state. With the two unable to repair their relations, and the continued conflict over control of the family business, it seemed nearly impossible for the very popular TV series to continue.
The show was so popular it spurred many products including a PlayStation 2 version of the show.
TLC issued a statement thanking the Teutul family for being such a great moment in the channel's history.
