As the temperature rises, the sound of a loud throttle can be heard outside. With motorcycle season approaching, you may need to stop by a nearby Harley Davidson store for an oil change. Alternatively, you might pass by a Harley dealership while on a Sunday ride in a different city. 

When you see a Harley Dealership, you may not be aware that it could have been constructed by FBi Buildings. This is why we have compiled a list of the top Harley Davidson dealerships that we have constructed throughout the years.


Who Builds Harley Davidson Dealerships?

As one of the Midwest's largest post-frame builders, we have experience building various commercial buildings, including Harley Davidson Dealerships.

Post-frame construction is popular for commercial projects due to its design flexibility. Our buildings use wood frames with widely spaced columns, so you can place windows, doors, and even interior walls virtually wherever you want to maximize space.

They also go up quickly and are energy efficient. And because curb appeal is vital to the success of every commercial building, we offer multiple attractive exterior features and finishes to increase foot traffic.

Top 4 Harley Davidson Dealership Commercial Post-Frame Buildings

4) Harley Davidson Valparaiso, IN

This Porter County, IN dealership has a classic brick exterior. It features 2' x 2' boxed overhangs on the west sidewall, 24" overhangs on the east and south walls, and an interior steel liner package.

Fire block walls are required for commercial construction projects over 12,000 square feet. This project was built with fire blocking prevention since it is over 12,000 at 80' x 288' x 14' in size.

3) Harley Davidson Kokomo, IN

This 80' x 200' x 14' pole building is located in Howard County, IN. It has a stunning angled brick entry and wrap-around porch. 

Brick is a popular exterior option for commercial businesses. Due to its durability, it is relatively low maintenance. Unlike steel, vinyl, and wood siding, it won't dent or rot. No paint is needed after installation. However, brick is relatively expensive compared to its counterparts.

There are several ways to finish the inside of a post-frame structure. The inside of the Kokomo dealership is drywall. Choosing the correct type of drywall for your post-frame building project is critical. Ultra-light gypsum boards are easier to lift, carry, and install. Moisture-resistant drywall is necessary for humid climates within bathrooms and kitchens. Fire-resistant drywall gives pole barn owners peace of mind.

If you plan to install drywall, let your post-frame builder know before construction. They must prep your interior for stud walls, which can be placed anywhere because they do not support the pole barn roof.
