NEWBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - The headquarters of a motorcycle company Orange County Choppers is set to be auctioned off in March.

But Paul Teutul Sr. tells The Times Herald-Record on Saturday (https://bit.ly/1Qz2Zcn ) the sell-off has nothing to do with the company that’s been featured in two reality TV shows.

Bidding for the $13 million, 61,000-square-foot glass-and-steel building will start at $900,000.

The newspaper reports the company surrendered the building that holds its custom-made motorcycles in 2011 to its lender, which then sold it to a Dallas, Texas-based company.

The motorcycle-building exploits of Teutul and his son Paul Teutul Jr. have been featured on Discovery Channel’s “American Chopper” and “Orange County Choppers” on Country Music Television.

Teutul says the company has leased the space and the auction won’t impact its business.
