Liberty Harley-Davidson in Rahway acquired
Hannum’s Harley-Davidson has acquired Liberty Harley-Davidson, marking Hannum’s first dealership in New Jersey. The family-owned business established in 1955 also owns and operates dealerships in Media, Chadds Ford and Sellersville, Pennsylvania. Renovations are already underway at the newly titled Hannum’s Harley-Davidson of Rahway.
Just steps away from the New Jersey Transit train station in the heart of Rahway, the 25,000-square-foot, two-story building at 12 W. Milton Avenue will house hundreds of new and used bikes and will have full sales, service and parts departments with an experienced and knowledgeable staff.
“Our eyes are always open to new opportunities, and the passion for Harley-Davidson in this area is undeniable,” said Tom Hannum III, owner of Hannum’s Harley-Davidson. “Congratulations to Tom and Lucy McTamney on a well-deserved retirement after so many successful years at Liberty. Hannum’s is proud to accept this family dealership into our own.”
“We’re leaving Liberty in capable hands,” said Tom McTamney. “We hope you’ll give the Hannum Family a warm welcome. Thanks for all the great times over the years, and don’t worry, we’ll be seeing you around as Lucy and I will now have time to ride!”
In 1954, Tom Hannum Jr. was so passionate about motorcycles that he was able to convince his father, Tom Sr., to sell his automotive business to purchase a Harley-Davidson franchise. So began the Hannum’s Harley-Davidson dynasty, which continues to bring the “Thrill of the Ride” to customers throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey.
Hannum’s Harley-Davidson has been a family-owned and operated business since it first opened its doors on Chester Pike in Crum Lynne in 1954. As the business expanded, the store was relocated to its current location in Media in 1959; a second location was added in Chadds Ford in 2000 and a third location in Sellersville opened in 2015.
Family truly is at the heart of Hannum’s Harley-Davidson. Tom Jr. was an avid racer and motorcycling enthusiast with a great respect for the American iconic brand. Over the years he passed this passion on to his wife Rita and two children, Tonda and Tom III. All three are actively involved in all aspects of the business today.
