Elvis is in the building at South East Harley-Davidson


South East Harley-Davidson/Buell isn’t just a dealership, it’s the centerpiece of a growing mini-empire.

Founder Paul Meyers opened the shop 63 years ago, when he was a 21-year-old professional motorcycle racer. His son Paul, Jr., runs it now, and Sr, 83, still rides his motorcycle to work every day.

The dealership sells new Harley-Davidsons and PG&A, and in March the store opened a used, non-Harley dealership next door to take in trades. GM Dave Bundus told Cleveland.com he’s proud of the trade-in location because it has brought in a lot of new clients.

Another draw is an on-site diner with its own local fan base.

But the real show is an exhibit of Elvis Presley photographs, framed gold records and memorabilia built around one of his motorcycles.

The Meyers also own a club-car agency that sells used and new golf carts.
