Default American Chopper Canceled After 10 Years On The Air

Not that I ever really cared for the show but it is part of the biker world so I guess it's news.

Would love to see a true Motorcycle show that deals with True road bikes and not 50,000 overpriced choppers .. Won't miss this show a bit, kind of liked it at the beginning but then got to be a regular soap opera BS ..

OCC builds begin at $70,000, and have never aired one that cost less than $120,000 actually.

I find the design ideas to be amazing and the ability to take raw materials and fabricate is pretty impressive. Going to miss it from that perspective

So you guys think that the cancellation of this series is the end of the Tutles?
Not a chance.
1st, recycle recycle recycle what is already in the can
2nd, guest spots and teasers hinting at big doings
3rd, endorsement deal and pitches to execs about new formats with product tie ins
4th, Cross network launch with their faces plastered all over cable and TV media including the groovy banners we try to ignore on the inter webs.

Death, taxes and Tutles. 3 things you know you have to put up with.

American Chopper proved that the more expensive the bike, the more unrideable it is what with a butt-in-a-trashcan riding posture. It also proved that the average TV watcher loves conflict. Guess I'm either above or below average.

Pop, you are one helluva good read...I'd love to see more of your posts.

Not to take away from the signers of the Declaration of Independence but your link on this matter is a mixture of true and false.
