After Harley-Davidson shut down Buell Motorcycle Co., Erik Buell established an independent motorcycle race shop, Erik Buell Racing, according to The Business Journal of Milwaukee.
The new company will specialize in the supply of race use-only Buell motorcycle parts and race preparation services for engines and motorcycles, and the manufacturing and sale of Buell 1125R-based race use-only motorcycles under license from Harley-Davidson, as well as providing technical support to racers of Buell motorcycles.
“I’m looking forward to helping Buell racers keep their bikes flying,” Buell told the The Business Journal. “We’ve got some exciting race development projects in the works and it will mean a lot to me personally to see Buell racers competing for wins and championships in the 2010 season and beyond.”
