THE HISTORY OF SURREY BIKES IN AMERICA

In 1970, Cliff Marshall Imports in Dennisport, Massachusetts introduced for sale the Selene Surrey bike, an Italian-made Surrey bike produced by Mecart.  Later that same year, The Surrey Company was founded.  The Surrey Company opened as Beach Bike Rental and operated rental locations in Kissimmee, Florida and Galveston, Texas with great success, renting cycles of all types, including the Selene, the Rosalie (the Gitane Rosalie, a uni-frame four-wheel cycle manufactured in France) and the PPV (People Powered Vehicle similar to our new Impello™).

As a Rental Operator:

The Surrey Company has rented Surrey bikes and other cycles in America for almost 40 years.  Our rental experience is absolutely unparalleled in the United States.  As a rental operator, Four (4) wheel bike(s) bicycle(s), Surrey, Surrey bike(s)The Surrey Company gained first-hand knowledge of the abusive nature of the rental industry and the shortened useful life of Surrey bikes due to such abuse. Almost 40 years ago, The Surrey Company began to evaluate the weaknesses of the Italian made product and worked with the importer to communicate these weaknesses to the manufacturer. The Surrey Company eventually found it necessary to set up a facility to remake certain components of the Surrey bike, including frame and awning parts.  After setting up to repair the Italian made Surrey bike, The Surrey Company was only one step removed from becoming a manufacturer itself.
