BEDFORD - Adam Smith's Texas Harley — one of the largest Harley-Davidson dealerships in the nation — has begun construction on its new Texas Harley store in the 1800 block of Airport Fwy.

The new 80,000-sf flagship store and will consolidate the dealership's three-building setup.

The expansion will consolidate the dealership's sales, service area and administrative offices under one roof in a new two-story building.

Along with the new space, Texas Harley will have 35,000 sf under roof for outside event space for the store's weekly social events that range from community fundraisers to live concerts.

Smith, who has owned Texas Harley-Davidson since 2011, also owns Texoma Harley-Davidson.

Adam Smith's Texas Harley-Davidson is already among the top ten Harley dealerships in the United States in terms of service, finance and sales volume. The flagship store is set to open fall 2015.

Adoptable dogs from the Bedford Animal Shelter were at the event in Harley gear. A fearful black chihuahua had been hiding on the lot for several months. After being rescued and dressed in Harley gear, he was ready to be adopted.

The facility's signage will include "You'll never ride alone" in true Texaas Harley-Davidson fashion.

A grand finale of 150-foot-high orange and black explosives was used to "break ground," along with a custom-made shovel topped with Harley handlebars for Smith.
