Seeing “Made in the USA” on a bicycle is a rare event these days, but did you know that a manufacturer has been continuously producing American-made bicycles in New York City since 1898? And that their distinctive, classic, and timeless creations are now available for purchase on Bike Nashbar?
Say hello to Worksman Cycles.
We at Nashbar know a thing or two about longevity in the bicycle retail business with more than 40 years of experience under our collective belt, and we’re proud to partner with New York City’s venerable Worksman Cycles brand whose 116 years in the bike biz makes us feel very young.
And speaking of young, all of Worksman Cycles’ offerings on Bike Nashbar will make you feel young at heart – whether it’s a retro cruiser chock full of chrome, versatile single or multi-speed roadsters, or even a retro trike for those enamored with pedal-powered pleasure on three wheels. Additionally, there’s a special edition cruiser that benefits the Wounded Warrior Project and pays tribute to our nation’s military heroes.
Each and every Worksman Cycles bicycle is built on-demand and once your order is placed then their craftsmen commence to building your bike truly from scratch – machining, welding and painting the frame; hand-building the wheels; topped off with final assembly of the components – all at their manufacturing facility in Ozone Park, Queens, New York City.
Worksman Cycles has had plenty of time to hone and perfect their craft. They’re proud to be the USA’s oldest bicycle manufacturer, tracing their roots back to 1898 when Morris Worksman started the eponymous bicycle business in lower Manhattan on the very footprint of what would become the World Trade Center. Now located in Queens, in a facility that meets 25% of its energy demands through solar power, they’ve continued to crank out a range of bicycles built to last, from workhorse industrial bicycles to chrome-festooned cruisers.
And now’s your chance to make one of these beauties your own!
