Sorta odd that the new owners are ready to retire. Jim sold it a couple of years ago before he passed away but must be the new folks want out as well. Certainly is a well established shop with many regular customers, should be a good deal if you have the cash. :moto:

Sad to see. Jim (RIP) was a great guy and true MC enthusiast and a straight shooter at least with me. Ural knowledge, public relations and customer service wise Frank had some big shoes to fill when he took over. With their side line of Royal Enfields and Enfield Corp dumping over the chit bucket changing the import/export process to inhouse certainly isn't helping sales of non mainstream motorcycles. So kinda doesn't surprise me Raceways is having troubles keeping the lights on. Sad to lose one of the previous Icons of Ural knowledge and customer service.
Best of luck to all those involved.

The requirement that the new buyers must be of good character disqualifies many on this site....that and the need to have cash......

He did say the price would drop as inventory was sold.

If price includes inventory and profit at a nominal 5x earnings there's no money to be made here.

Ditto to rivers comments.

Maybe the crumplezone bash plates weren't working out for him...
95% of all Urals built in the last ten years are still on the road....The other 5% made it home.
