SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The owner of Bourget’s Bike Works has retained an auction firm to liquidate the custom house.

K.D. Auctions will hold an online-only auction of Bourget’s rolling chassis, CNC machines, tooling, parts and accessories. A Sept. 17 inspection preview is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m at Bourget Bike Works in Phoenix. More than 400 lots are offered. Online-only bids begin closing at 7:30 a.m. Sept. 18.

That doesn’t mean the last Bourget bike has hit the streets. Cyril Huze reports on his blog:

“Roger and Brigitte Bourget divorced in 2008, and since 2009 Brigitte solely owned and managed the business. In 1993, Roger Bourget was the original creator with his wife of Bourget’s Bike Works and imposed a very unique drop seat/long front-end custom motorcycle style that everybody at the time could identify as his design….Following the divorce from Brigitte, Roger left Bourget Bike Works in July 2009 and opened with new wife Emily a shop in Montrose, Colorado called Roger’s Bourget Chopper Shoppe.”
