Hudson Valley SPCA hopes to raise $200,000 by raffling off Orange County Choppers bike

NEWBURGH – Orange County Choppers’ latest contribution to the community is a custom built bike for the Hudson Valley SPCA.

It was unveiled last Friday at the Motorcyclepedia Museum in Newburgh when Choppers’ patriarch Paul Teutel, Sr. rode the bike out to a VIP unveiling.

He said 100 percent of the proceeds of the motorcycle, which he donated to be raffled off, will go to the SPCA.

“Hopefully we will raise a lot of money and be able to help the cause. They are a non-profit organization so every little bit helps,” Teutel said.

Gene Hecht, the SPCA’s humane law enforcement officer, said the “gorgeous” bike will hopefully bring in $200,000 in raffle earnings.

“We keep taking the animals and the vet bills are getting staggering, but hopefully, this will help us tremendously,” Hecht said.

The bike includes a hand-engraved leather seat and embedded photos of a dog and cat.
