Everything will go at the Buell factory liquidation sale, including equipment such as this assembly line hoist.
A Michigan-based liquidation firm will be selling off everything at the former Buell Motorcycles factory in East Troy, Wisconsin in a liquidation sale slated to begin January 28, in what looks to be Harley-Davidson’s pounding of the final nail in the coffin of the Buell Motorcycle Company—at least this iteration of it. And when we say everything will be sold off, we mean everything; tools, tool chests, office furniture, cabinets, some office wall art…the works. Even some motorcycles that were obviously used as testing comparison mules for research and development. The sale will be open to the public and held right at the former factory grounds, and everything will be eventually sold off, regardless of loss. A rather sad ending to the story of Buell Motorcycle Company…at least until Erik Buell begins his next motorcycle venture through other means.
Also included as part of the...
Also included as part of the Buell factory liquidation sale is a Triumph Speed Triple, obviously part of the Buell's comparison R&D section.

Buell Motorcycle Closes Factory & Liquidation Sale Begins End of January
East Troy, Wisconsin-based Buell Motorcycles, a subsidiary of Harley-Davidson, has ceased manufacturing and starts its liquidation sale this January 28th. Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Liquid Asset Partners will run a liquidation sale for a period of 30 days to maximize the sale of vehicles & factory equipment from the state-of-the-art facility. Over the past 26 years Buell has manufactured over 130,000 motorcycles and created avid fans worldwide. The liquidation event will be a historic chance for motorcycle riders and fans to buy a piece of history and see the inside of the factory for the last time.
"Buell had a great run as a quality American motorcycle with fans worldwide." says Bill Melvin Jr., CEO of Liquid Asset Partners. "Buell spared no expense in making their beautiful bikes and in purchasing the factory equipment. There is a tremendous interest in the equipment and vehicles left in the factory and there are so many tools nobody will go home empty handed!"
The liquidation sale will start January 28th and run everyday for 30 days until everything is sold. Regardless of cost or loss, millions of dollars worth of equipment and tools will be sold directly on the factory floor. The liquidation firm will be selling at enormous discounts, right from the start. Customers can buy tools for their garage, computers for their offices, and motorcycle specific equipment for making and testing their bikes.
"This factory was a state of the art, small scale factory. It's the type of facility that many tools and items will be of great interest to the home mechanic and motorcycle fanatic." says Melvin Jr. "To make the sale successful we are prepared to deeply discount the inventory and sell everything in one month! It's stacked high and we're selling it cheap. The public won't want to miss these deals".
The liquidation sale starts January 28th at the Buell Factory at 2815 Buell Dr, East Troy, WI. It is open to the public everyday until everything is sold.
