Clare's Harley-Davidson of Niagara Doors Open Niagara-on-the-Lake


Clare's Harley-Davidson of Niagara

Throughout this store, you can see architectural touches of reclaimed and repurposed materials. Outside, a large water tower – originally from Fort Erie – was relocated to form the Harley Davidson sign. Inside, reclaimed brick was used to create the industrial feel. The wood panelling came from Buffalo, New York and features original mailboxes from a small apartment building. Other items such as the vintage window in the sales offices and doors came from the same source. In the ladies’ washroom is a bathroom counter from the Prince of Wales Hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake. In addition, the original art deco interior and other restaurant fittings from Diana Sweets – a restaurant that operated for 75 years in St. Catharines – has now been restored inside!
