Milwaukee Iron Live And Online Auction


As I told you a few days ago, after 26 years as the Boss Man (and Steel Man) of Milwaukee Iron fellow Builder and Parts Manufacturer Randy Simpson is closing the doors of his custom motorcycle and machine shop in Lynchburg, VA. Ready to move to a new venture and to spend more time socializing in motorcycle events, Randy is auctioning the  business name, the huge parts inventory, all machines and tools in a live and online public auction on Thursday August 27th.

Although the liquidation list is too long to fit here, and just to give you an idea: everything from a spinning machine for fenders, gas and oil tanks and a manufacturing robot that mig welds and plasma cuts using Lincoln equipment to several Lincoln welders (both tig and mig) and flat steel work tables. There are a large variety of hand tools, 2 press brakes (one small and one 88 ton) that will also be included in the auction. Also for sale, some of the bikes Randy has become notable for during his career like Karnevil, Voodoo Child, Nuthin’ Fancy, Southern Steel. Even his original Street Survivors will be up for bid.
There are also many flathead cases and engines, a lot of new old stock frontend stuff (FLH and FLT style) pistons and rings for J models and V’s,  plenty of frames from Pans, Shovels, Evos, Sportsters and even some of the MI custom frames will be included. All of this and one special item, a 40 foot shipping container that is packed to the roof with parts that will be auctioned as one lot to the highest bidder.

    Sorry to hear he is closing his doors. I really enjoyed his show on Discovery Channel.

    I wonder if OCC is next? That place has got to be hurting in this economy with all their huge overhead…like that new glass palace they built.

    Randy, Your a smart man for doing this. This industry dose not deserve the hard work and innovation that you bring to it. I wish you good fortune in your new endeavor.

    I have to tell you a good story about Hanoi Jane .

    She wanted to come into our area for a one night program several years back ” avg age well over 50 ” thinking that because of her popularity years back as a fitness guru and singer maybe singing a song about her boots walking over some one.

    Well she forgot one other deatail. Many of the people in this area are military vets including myself . Guess who got the boot in the end.

    The bitch never made it due to the protest from the flood of calls from the true Americans protesting her performance. She declined to come , conflick of schedule.
