DMC sidecars is for sale

I have decided to retire and have a sale pending on our building. As such I am looking for a buyer for the sidecar company.

What I have for sale are molds, production tooling, patterns, CNC programs and any parts and materials currently on hand. Sale will include rights to the name, web page, phone number. Contact information for our overseas distributors. Tooling and rights to all of our mounts and trailer hitches. Or in short everything but the actual machinery needed. The machinery is also available separately.
You can see all but 2 of our sidecars on our web page. Many of these are also made for left hand mount as we export to Australia. The two sidecars not on the side are the GT https://www.dropbox.com/s/ghakz9cvv35wlzv/0516190811_Burst01.jpg?dl=0
And the Liberator https://www.dropbox.com/s/ot0195aun7fb6hs/hondagl1800gwblueliberatorrf8.2005.JPG?dl=0
In addition, we also are including the molds for a trike body that is designed to use DNA rear ends. https://www.dropbox.com/s/4kg1efv964pfi5a/100_5837.JPG?dl=0

Price $75,000 USD. All must be removed by January 6th 2023

Just the profits from ongoing orders for trailer hitches from our two largest distributors would make the payments on any loan needed to purchase the company.

The company is a viable going company, the building I own just got so valuable that it no longer makes sense for me to keep working.

All current orders will be completed, we are taking orders for some hardware still for a very limited time.

   Smart man knows when to take the deal and walk away. That has never been more true than times we are facing.

I have turned down many stupid  high money offers for the farm. I just can not let it go. Staying in the family.

It has been reported that DMC has been sold to our own Kent Silk, Texas Sidecar Company.  Hope they move everything down to Texas. Seem other major Tech companies are relocating to Texas. There has to be a many good reasons for so many multimillion-dollar companies to move here.

Wish Kent and his crew the very best with this new acquisition.  The future of US sidecar production is not as dim as it was a few days a go.

This is great news!  Best of luck to Kent.  Glad to hear that all Jay's work won't go by the wayside.  Woohoo!

Kent has hired my GM as his GM so all should be fine.

Until the move we are taking orders for stuff we have in stock. But not taking any more orders for sidecars. Once we finish our workload then the company will move.

Jay,

Good Luck in your efforts to retire.  I have lots of miles on the new rig you mounted on my Harley Davidson.  It is perfect!

Jay, very sorry to learn that DMC is leaving the area, but I can tell you retirement is great, so enjoy it!  I want to thank you for the excellent work you and your company have done for me over the years with numerous rigs.  Will you be staying active with sidecaring?  If so, let's get together for ride.

Hi Mark, right now the only sidecar bike I have is a KLR with an Enduro. My wife's Moto Guzzi Eldorado is due back from the restoration shop in the next few months. We are building her a Patriot and we are building me everything to make a great R1250GSA / Expedition however I have yet to purchase the bike. The KLR we plan on using as a "support" Vehicle as we will be buying a smaller 4wd motorhome and doing some traveling.

We are going to be away from sidecaring for a while as we have many other things going on however, we will be back at some point. May bring back the NW sidecar pilots and start hosing events.
