Jesse James is heading to Texas for good.

At a custody hearing Friday in Orange County, Calif., his attorney John Schilling confirmed that the 41-year-old biker -- who shared a home in Seal Beach, Calif., with ex Sandra Bullock -- is permanently moving to Austin in July after he finishes taping a History Channel special.

James told Saturday morning that his kids love Bullock, 45 (who owns a home there), and want to continue their relationship with her. He will continue operating West Coast Choppers in Orange County, but plans to work full-time in Austin, where he will open another Cisco Burger restaurant.

How will the the move affect his 6-year-old daughter Sunny's relationship with her mother, porn star Janine Lindemulder?

Lindemulder, who has battled substance abuse problems, currently lives in L.A.. Earlier this month, she was granted periodical, supervised visits.

"He wants her to have a relationship with Sunny, and they are trying to work things out," said Schilling, adding that Lindemulder could even move to Austin as well.

Meanwhile, an attorney for Lindemulder insists she remains drug-free.

At Friday's hearing, a judge received a letter from Lindemulder's current husband saying she was on prescription meds and should be denied visitation with Sunny. But Lindemulder's attorney provided a different letter from her current husband "disavowing" the claims, and a judge dismissed the claim.
