Cycling and aerospace have gone together since the Wright Brothers became aviation pioneers after launching their bicycle manufacturing business.

Bicycles have also been integral to HORST Engineering since its beginning. Harry Livingston, our founder, apprenticed at a German bicycle factory in the 1920’s where he learned his basic metalworking skills, and our company has a long history of supplying the bicycle products market.
