Pennsylvania Harley-Davidson dealership changes hands


One person’s retirement is another’s business opportunity. That’s the case for Robert Eggstein, who bought a Harley-Davidson dealership in a Parryville, Pa., from retiring Dennis Blocker, 63, president and owner of Blocker Enterprises.

Eggstein is reopening the dealership as Keystone Harley-Davidson and said he plans to retain the staff.

Blocker started in the business in 1971 with Yamaha, and added Harley-Davidson in 1976. The dealership grew from 3,000 sq. ft. to more than 50,000 sq. ft. in a 2005 renovation.

Blocker told the Times News he is retiring from the day-to-day operations but plans to continue operating the Kawasaki and Yamaha portion of the dealership, at first in place but later at a new location.
