Big Dog Motorcycles is halting production and owner Sheldon Coleman will start a new business making parts for Big Dog owners and dealers. This story began circulating yesterday, but kept changing every time it appeared. The Wichita Business Journal, talked to Rick Fairless of Stokers Dallas who confirmed he had a conversation with Coleman who indicated the bank had shut down production for good.
While the motorcycle business is in a slow period, the market for customs of the type manufactured by Big Dog has been particularly hard hit. Coleman’s plans to make parts for the bikes should be good news for current owners.
