Motorcycle Rentals from PDX Airport. Relocatable and Expandable.
P/T or F/T business. Divorce and associated obligations force sale.
I am selling this business for a friend of mine because Doug has been too busy working overtime at his primary job to help pay off legal fees and make alimony payments after a costly divorce. But personal drama aside, this is a great business that has the potential to easily double what Doug has been netting from it.
This has always been a very part-time job for Doug, averaging about $25,000 a year net. His best year he grossed over $40,000. His worst year was this year because he turned down almost every call he got because his now ex-wife was taking all the money anyway and he was so mired in legal proceedings while working his other full-time job and being forced to live in his friend's spare room. But I digress.
By the way, Northwest Adventures has been run while Doug was working his other job which he has held for 20 years. So just imagine what you could do if you didn't have to divide your time. Last year his son took it over as his summer job just after graduating high school. But then he was off to college and there is nobody to run the business. He took in over $9,000 just in June and July. Just an 18-year-old kid!
This is basically a May through September business here in the Northwest. An ambitious buyer could drive it to Arizona October through April and have a year long business. There are a lot of expansion possibilities. Also, Olympia Motosports allows him to purchase product at wholesale but he hasn't explored the resale avenue. And RKA luggage considers him a full fledged retailer for them but he hasn't done anything with that either.
One of the most impressive things about this business is that it has been run only with organic traffic and word of mouth. If someone were to add some social media marketing, the results could be more than you could handle, which is not a bad problem to have.
Doug has raised rates a few times since starting the business in 2007 and they could be raised again. He charges $139 a day with a two-day minimum rental. Average sale is over $400. Doug was offered $90,000 3 years ago but didn't accept it. Everything was finally paid off and it was time to start making some serious money. But then his personal life took a turn so the business has been neglected. But the equipment is in top shape and Doug has been obsessive about keeping everything that way. He has only had one bike break down in the past 10 years. Those Vstrom's are amazing machines and they have been kept very well maintained.
Another reason Doug is selling this business so cheap is because his financial records are in disarray. His tax returns commingled Schedule C activities. While perfectly legal, it makes it more difficult to get accurate records. However, there is documentation showing continuity and insurance records will show how many vehicles were rented out. And Doug did hand me a six inch stack of Rental Agreements that verify sales throughout the years.
So if you can see through all that, then you are getting one hell of a deal. You are basically paying less than one year's average net, and then adding an excellent inventory in good condition at a very fair cost. The business foundation is solid and the upside is great.
Please read this great article entitled, "Motorcycle companies cash in on the adventure riding boom":
Here are the different urls that come with the business:
If you have any questions, I will be handling that for Doug. Anything I don't know I will ask him for the answers. When you come out for a visit, we will all sit down and go over all the details of the business.

Wine & Painting- One Location & 6 Territories
Great Business Opportunity for Wine & Painting
Los Angeles, CA
Wonderful Opportunity to own a business that is both fun and creative! This is where art, wine and entertainment converge to offer an exciting and fun business that will hardly seem like work. In existence in the Los Angeles area since 2012, this cool business was the first in the area to make its debut and then take the Southland by storm and continues to show growth in profits since 2012. The incredible concept is: enjoying your favorite wine or a cocktail while creating a work of art to take home - and leave the clean up behind!
Featured on ABC7 “Eye on LA” as one of the best classes in Los Angeles, this is a fabulous deal offering one physical location and six counties/territories. The store front is located in one of the territories, on a very busy and historic thoroughfare. The five additional territories currently host private parties and events but are virtually untapped as to how much income they can produce. A new owner may want to add additional brick and mortar locations to the existing territories to increase revenue.
This business is currently being run absentee, as the sellers live out of state. The owners have a very confident and fully trained staff of artists, assistants, and office and operations managers. However, a working owner is certainly a way to increase the revenue stream by replacing some of the managerial positions.
Awesome local artists, great customer service from the knowledgeable staff and beautiful surroundings make for an amazing experience that will be tough to match. The business hosts events monthly with a different featured painting each night. There is no need for a stroke of paint experience; the step-by-step instruction method given will inspire everyone to create a masterpiece by the end of their session.
The classes in the studio can be taken as group, as a couple or alone, along with private events that can be hosted in your home, at their physical location or a venue of your choice for any and all occasions such as: Birthday Parties, Girls Night In or Out, Holiday Celebrations, Customer Appreciation, Bachelorette Parties, Date Night, Fundraisers, Bridal Showers and Corporate Events. Also available are classes that instill confidence in the younger artist and are a great option for birthday parties and school events where parents can also join in. The business is also currently doing one or two private events for juniors per week and offers some public events typically around the holidays and during the summer.
With an established brand name and locations in 50 cities across the Southern California, this business is in a position to take advantage of a corporate event market that is largely untapped. The business does have a strong reputation among some of Southern California’s top businesses - an impressive list that will be provided in the confidential business review. It also has an established fan base with 15,000 plus Los Angeles Facebook fans and 11,000 Orange County Fans. With over 19 Million potential consumers within six owned territories, the opportunity to expand is exponential.

Harlem Ambassadors Basketball Show
A Valued Community Asset
For the past 18 years, Harlem Ambassadors has been building a national and international presence in fundraising entertainment. Over this tenure, the Ambassadors’ footprint includes over 3,000 shows in all 50 states, 23 countries, and over 125 different U.S. military installations in all service branches. In partnership with community, youth, and social service agencies, the organization has raised millions of dollars while retaining an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
The Harlem Ambassadors performers are college educated, provide a entertaining comedy basketball show against a local team, and share positive messages with kids. In addition, an event may include a school assembly to convey messages of staying in school, avoiding drugs, and striving for success. The organization currently schedules approximately 150 shows and 175 school assemblies annually.
The quality of the entertainment, the positive message, and the ability to generate funds for local projects have generated accolades and solid repeat business with various communities around the United States. In addition, the Ambassadors have created and honed detailed event-planning strategies, available to community organizers to assist them in hosting an Ambassadors show to maximize the benefit for all involved.
The front office staff is actively involved in securing locations, establishing the schedule, and monitoring the schedule and events throughout the season. There is an expected level of professionalism with each event and assembly, and the staff and team are committed to delivering for each community.
The company has consistently generated annual revenues in the range of $700,000-$800,000, principally through show and assembly fees and merchandise sales. In turn, the company has operated at a consistent breakeven level after executive compensation, with the majority of expenses related to salaries and wages, travel, merchandise inventory, insurance, corporate offices, and related overhead.
The mission of the Harlem Ambassadors is to deliver a quality basketball show to audiences throughout the United States and internationally and provide non-profit and community service groups with a fun family fundraising event. The show is designed to be fun for customers of all ages, with youngsters being awed for the first time and older folks enjoying the tried-and-true gags like a rerun of a favorite comedy movie. The Ambassadors' operation is professional in all aspects. In addition to having a wholesome family entertainment product, the Ambassadors are also good citizens and willing role models for youth, promoting the values of staying in school, staying off drugs, and fostering racial harmony. The Ambassador’s slogan is “It’s Not Your Grandfather’s Basketball Show.”
The Harlem Ambassadors are not affiliated with any other “Harlem-style” basketball teams. There are several aspects of a Harlem Ambassadors event that distinguishes it from other “Harlem-style” shows:
Affordable tickets for a good cause: Local event organizers set their ticket prices at a range affordable for a family ($5-$15). Ticket buyers can feel good about purchasing tickets because all ticket sales go to the local community organization hosting the event.
Intimate venue: Many Harlem Ambassadors events are held in a small venue, not a large gym, allowing every audience member to feel like he or she is part of the show. In fact, many audience members, especially the kids, are involved in the show through interactive games and activities between the quarters.
Local connections: The Harlem Ambassadors do not bring a “stooge” team to play against them during the game. Everyone attending a Harlem Ambassadors game will see local celebrities (teachers, coaches, civic officials, firefighters, and so on) playing on the local team. Local community members participate in the event as volunteers, perform the national anthem, present the colors, and local youth troupes may perf
