    Well from what i've pieced together he left when they moved to the big new digs, in some scenes he didn't seem to like paul sr or jnr very much as he was on quite a few occasions whining about something, was wrong or his way was better but no one listened so i'm guessing they booted the whiny lil b!tch outta there

    and tbh i like it even more shame about the big bust up between snr and jnr though

    edit/

    on youtube there is a vid of vinne quitting as he's been there for 4 years and is still making bikes so him and cody have left and set up their own business v customs i think it is, unconfirmed rumours that snr wouldn't give him a raise.

    First Vinnie quit not sacked it ended up where both Snr and Jnr were getting him to do all the work while "they were the bosses" so he quit, as said Cody also left with him they now run their own business, building bikes they even have a web site

    I don't blame Vinnie for leaving, I expect that he became fed up with all of the disagreements between Snr. and Jnr. Also Jnr, although a great designer has become unreliable turning up as and when he decided to, how can anyone work with that attitude. I think Vinnie felt he was taken for granted, and don't blame him one bit. Shame we cannot have a series about Vinnie's new venture............. I think we would see better TV
