Jesse James has had a pretty rough year. That statement may even be an understatement considering his controversial marriage with Sandra Bullock made worldwide headlines. Unfortunately for James, it looks like 2010 isn’t done with him yet as the bad news just keeps on piling up.

According to Cyril Huze Blog, the popular manufacturer of custom-made motorcycles has decided to close the shop that launched to celebrity status, West Coast Choppers. The blog didn’t mention the reason behind the closing of the shop, but did say that all of the existing Jesse James motorcycle frames and parts will now be manufactured by Daytec and Belt Drive Ltd, respectively.

All parts will likewise be available through Custom Chrome.

So there you have it, people. If there’s truth to what Cyrus is saying, West Coast Choppers has been shut down. It’s devastating news for all you fans of Jesse James and the motorcycle chop shop.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I think this is a direct to reaction of all the gaudy, unreadable, loud and loudly painted show bikes that the chopper craze produced.

I am not a Harley or Chopper guy, but I have respect for good craftsmanship. I was a fan of Jesse James, when he built choppers. He is responsible for his own death. If he just stayed focused on building quality bikes he would still be going strong.
