Frame building shop equipment for sale in Indianapolis on CL

I'm not the seller, no relation or financial interest on my part, yada yada.

Lord help me, this is attractive. Total financial sinkhole; Mr. Cherry would probably agree.

Still, those cabinets! Those frame blocks! Tables! Jigs! Tubing!

Arrrgh!

If I was not inheriting a shop I'd seriously take a look at that... and even then that is a lot of materials at a very good price.

I too am drawn to the cabinets. I have a Gerstner like that. Which, oddly, came with this house, sort of.
But the rest of the stuff? Load knows I have too many "hobbies".

Well it's a good thing I hate working or I'd have money to buy this and then have to work to use it!

The milling machine, the lathe, the welder, the drill press, the torches, the facing, tapping, and cutting tools, the hole saws, the portable power drills, sanders, grinders, cutters, all seem to have walked out the door already and taken the lion's share of the $100,000 investment with them.

The images in the advert do not really match the description, plenty of sub assembly jigs and fixtures that took time to fabricate but may not be very useable without quite a bit of modification. I am assuming that the frames designed to be produced with those fixtures were not being used enough.

Anyone know what brand of bikes were made at this facility?
