The Wright Brothers USA is relocating to 1105 West Third Street in Wright-Dunbar

Wright Dunbar, Inc. is excited to announce The Wright Brothers USA, LLC has signed a three-year lease for the retail/office space at 1105 West Third Street in the heart of the historic Wright-Dunbar Business District.

The Wright Brothers USA, LLC was created by a partnership with the Wright Family and VMA, both of Dayton, to create revenue streams for The Wright Brothers Family Foundation in Dayton, Ohio, U.S.A.—via the licensing and marketing of The Wright Brothers® trademark worldwide—in support of the Foundation’s mission to preserve, protect and promote the legacy of the Wright brothers. The initial focus has been on products related to aviation, such as flight jackets, aviator watches and sunglasses, luggage and leather travel bags, and the like.

Now, after more than 100 years, Wright-inspired bikes will be assembled again in the very city the brothers called home. The Wright Brothers Cycle Company invokes the spirit of innovation, persistence and the relentless pursuit of perfection exhibited by the Wright brothers themselves.

The Wright Brothers Cycle Company plan is to pay homage to their spirit with unique Van Cleve and St. Clair models. Each bike will be uniquely Wright, with several signature features giving unmistakable clues as to the identity of the bikes.

Previously The Wright Brothers® products could be purchased only through their retail website ( Now you can purchase products where they first called themselves The Wright Brothers at West Third and Williams Streets. It was a print shop. It was a bike shop. It was a work shop, where you can now shop.
