Janesville Harley store permanently shuts doors

Print Article

JANESVILLE - Boardtracker Harley-Davidson in Janesville has closed for good, and federal court records show the owners are attempting to sell their New Berlin dealership, with a possibility of selling the shuttered Janesville location, according to court documents.

The attorney for Boardtracker Harley-Davidson owners Eric and Sara Pomeroy, Alon Stein, states in court documents that the potential sale of the Pomeroy's locations was being delayed by Harley-Davidson.

The Harley-Davidson Credit Corporation is suing both the Janesville and New Berlin holding companies for $6.29 million and have put forth allegations of fraud and contract violations.

"The only reason for why the Janesville dealership has not been sold yet is because Harley-Davidson Motor Company is withholding consent of the transfer, apparently based on a policy capping the number of stores a dealer can own," Stein wrote. "This potential buyer is a dealer who owns several dealerships in Illinois and Wisconsin."

The Pomeroys are attempting to sell the Irontown Harley-Davidson dealership to Wisconsin Harley-Davidson owner Robert Moakley, who is based in Oconomowoc.

Stein also indicated with the sale of the New Berlin location already in process, the sale of the Janesville location would "lead to (the corporation) being paid in full. likely resolving this suit." Court documents indicated a potential buyer for the Janesville location owns several Harley-Davidson locations in Illinois and Wisconsin.

The dealership was purchased by the Pomeroys in 2015.
