Default New owner of Powerquest?

Is someone with the user name Claremont trying to restart powerquest because they bought about 98% of the lots up for auction.

haha you beat me to it. I googled claremont and its possibly an investment firm from NJ.

I don't think its an individual as they are overbidding on a ton of items, likely have a total price they like to get if for and bidding across the board. The molds under 29 are all junk btw.

They are over bidding on almost everything. Some of the tools are less expensive new. The only thing that is a deal are the fuel tanks if you needed 1. that stuphen looks good.

He's been in a bidding war for all three sets of molds Bad news for him if he doesnt get it all. Paying way over new consistently on many tools racks ect. Who needs 50 rear nav lights? 30 Custom fuel tanks? Starting a business over budget isn't good
Best of luck to all.

Small molds are junk and just sold for $65k to stealhead, not claremont. 38-28 molds are at 105 and SCs are at 65k

Update: Stealhead wins all the molds at about $220k give or take. Crazy claremont with over bid on EVERYTHING then not grab the molds. Anyone know who stealhead is? I've got a dually to sell him LOL
