Harley-Davidson District Manager Gary Barnes; Texas Harley General Manager Neil Noble; Texas Harley Owner Adam Smith; Bedford Mayor Jim Griffin break ground at the new site.

Adam Smith’s Texas Harley broke ground on one of the largest Harley-Davidson dealerships in the nation on November 12, 2014. The six-acre Bedford, Texas, site will be home to the new 70,000-plus-square-foot Texas Harley flagship store set to open fall 2015.

More than 100 guests attended the groundbreaking including Bedford Mayor Jim Griffin, Bedford City Council Members Ray Champney and Roger Fisher, State Senator Kelly Hancock, Bedford Police Chief Roger Gibson and Harley-Davidson District Manager Gary Barnes.

In Harley-Davidson fashion, the event was not your typical groundbreaking. It began with a motorcycle procession of VIPs. Guests walked the "orange carpet" and were photographed with Harley props and models decked out in riding gear. “Harley,” an adoptable puppy from the Bedford Animal Shelter was at the event in Harley gear. Guests also enjoyed a live art demonstration featuring recycled Harley parts.

A grand finale of 150-foot-high orange pyrotechnics was used to “break ground,” along with a custom-made shovel topped with Harley handlebars for Smith.

The new Texas Harley building will consolidate the current three-building setup, adding more than 20,000-square-feet, and will move the sales floor, service area and administrative offices into one location at the current site. Adam Smith’s Texas Harley-Davidson is already among the top 10 Harley dealerships in the United States in terms of service, finance and sales volume. In addition to having a state-of-the-art facility, the new two-story site will feature a large outside event space for Texas-Harley’s weekly social events such as live concerts, family-friendly activities and community fundraisers.
