AUBURN, Ind. (AP) - A crumbling former utility building in northeastern Indiana that's been vacant for a half-century could find a new life as a museum featuring classic motorcycles.
Fort Wayne developer Neil Colchin wants to restore the city of Auburn's vacant and dilapidated former electric utility building and turn it into a museum displaying 200 motorcycles.
The Star reports Colchin launched a Facebook page in late March detailing his plan for the 80-year-old brick building that's in danger of being razed.
Another developer told Auburn Mayor Norm Yoder it would take $1.6 million to renovate the city-owned building, but Colchin thinks he can rehab it for about $240,000
His professional background in concrete, hauling and construction would allow him to do much of the restoration work himself, including the masonry.
