I'm sure there's more to it than simply "the economy." What have you heard?

The bank pulled their line of credit leaving them to hang out to dry? Nothing new with 5/3 Bank by the way.

The owners milked the company dry. They bought expensive cars, boats, spent 200,000 on a custom motorcycle from Paul jr. formerly of OCC. All bought on company credit and then transferred into the owners names. Expect the creditors to go after them personally but it will be tough the way corporate law protects the assets in the owners name.

That bike was auctioned off for charity for the March of dimes! They did not keep it. The owners of that company are good people who did everything they could to keep it going.

to correct comments-the bike cost $640k and raffled it off for $80k. Another smart decision by the owners.
