Published: 31 August 2011

A huge auction that will shift £560k worth of goods takes place in Doncaster this weekend after a firm owning three Harley-Davidson dealerships went into administration.

Doncaster, Manchester and Leeds Harley-Davidson, owned by Summer Retail Ltd. who went into administration on July 15th, will have their stock auctioned by Charterfields International Asset Consultants.

The public auction takes place this Saturday, 3rd September, commencing at 9am at the St Leger Harley-Davidson showroom, Doncaster. There are over 20 Harley bikes included alongside several Hondas, Kawasakis, Triumphs, Suzukis and more.

Also up for grabs are Harley collectables, memorabilia, tools and workshop equipment such as mobile and fixed work benches. tool kits, bike lifts, tyre changers, paddock stands and office and shop fittings such as desks. Although the auction and retail sale will mainly sell Harley-Davidson goods, parts for Honda, Akrapovic, Subaru and Isuzu are also on sale.

Clothing, helmets, accessories and parts are also expected to be sold at a saving of 50% on the RRP, making the auction well worth the trip.

Robert Edwards, associate director of Charterfields said: “We believe this to be the biggest ever distressed sale of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and accessories.
“It’s a unique opportunity to acquire products from this iconic brand and items of memorabilia that would not normally come up for sale by public auction. We expect it will attract interest from Harley-Davidson enthusiasts in Europe and beyond.”

Viewing takes place on Friday 2nd at 9:30am and on the day of the auction at 9am.
