Was the release of this film bad timing or an amazing coincidence? You decide. This is a film about Erik Buell Racing. It’s the story of Erik coming back after being abruptly shut down by Harley Davidson, forming a new company and putting everything he had into making American sport and racing bikes.
The ragged edge is that perfect balance between control and chaos, taking it right up to the line and keeping it there because there is no other way. That’s how Erik Buell has been running it. If you’re going to compete in this business, starting a company to build and race your own sport bikes against the best the world has to offer, you go all in or you stay home. Now that Buell is once again sidelined, you can see how close to the edge he really was.
This groundbreaking film spans 5 years and tells the story of the rise of a company from three points of view: inside the EBR factory; inside the homes of former Buell employees in Easy Troy, Wisconsin; and down in the pits of the racetrack. This film will showcase the innovativeness and tenacity of the American spirit—either in victory or in defeat.
If you liked the story of John Britten, you’re probably going to like this, too.
