Quote
Reached via text this afternoon, Erik Buell said he is working with the new owner on “how to roll out the story.” Pressed for details, Buell said, “He’ll tell his story his way and in his time schedule. As it should be.”

He’s a bike guy, though?

“Yes,” texts Buell.

Meet the new owner...

Posted to EBR's Facebook page this morning by Mr. Bruce Belfer:



Quote
To address any confusion, Atlantic Metals division of BGI is a manufacturer of fabricated metal equipment in the architectural, electrical and lighting businesses. We are not in the scrap metal business. We make things. We make them here in Jersey, in the USA, with American engineers, American ingenuity, and American skilled labor. Been at it for over 30 years. We know how. EBR is intact and in good hands. Thanks for keeping the faith! More to come. Time to get to work...

More info from the new owner.  His intentions for EBR are pretty damned clear:

It is going to be extremely hard to patch up relations with the dealer network.  I know our local dealer ate it big on his inventory when Buell went TU last time.

Hero was mucking up the works. Same guys may be back at the December auction. Along with other previously un-named entities. Liquidators are  guaranteed to show up.

Time will tell.
