WICHITA — Part of the former Big Dog Motorcycles space at 1520 E. Douglas is now under contract.
No one involved in the deal is talking, but it looks like there’s a contract on the 20,000-square-foot warehouse space near Douglas and Hydraulic. That’s to the east of where Big Dog’s 60,000-square-foot showroom was.
The tract under contract includes an almost 2,000-square-foot office building in front of the warehouse and the land up to the corner of Douglas and Hydraulic. The list price is $850,000.
The deal has not closed yet, but it may soon.
Intrust Bank foreclosed on Big Dog in April, and founder Sheldon Coleman Jr. dissolved the corporation.
He then started a new company, BDM Performance Products, to supply parts, accessories and gear for more than 25,000 Big Dog motorcycles.
The operation is based in Big Dog's former service and research and development buildings and the former Johnstone Supply building next to where the company's headquarters was. That property is not for sale.
Jeff Walenta and Scott Salome of Grubb & Ellis/Martens Commercial Group have the listing on the former Big Dog campus, which they'll sell or lease.
That includes 101,000 square feet and is listed for $4,020,000, though it now looks like there won’t be a package deal.
