A FINE TRADITION
Skeppshult has been producing classic bicycles
in Sweden for nearly 100 years. It all began at the beginning
of the 20th century in the repair shop of the Samuelsson family
farm. Albert, the oldest son began building and selling
bicycles. These bicycles were the forerunner of what we
recognize today as the commuter bicycle with durable tires, fenders,
chain guard and a footbrake.
Thirty years later, in the 1940's the younger
brother Arvid took over and with his keen business skills grew the
business and moved it to its own location on Storgatan 78 where it
still operates today. Skeppshult, a name taken from the town
where the bicycles are produced, has held on to this tradition of
producing fine quality well designed classic and comfort bicycles.
The company has been awarded a royal warrant,
which is a distinction awarded by the King of Sweden to those
embody the standard of superior quality and workmanship associated
with fine Swedish design. Some other companies who share this
distinction are SAAB, Kosta Boda, and Brio to name a few.
Skeppshult has entered the US market in hopes
of encouraging more Americans to ride a bike. "We thought that
with this option, perhaps more Americans would enjoy the ride."
