In June 1963, Cycle Imports opened for business in Arlington, Virginia. It sold Birmingham Small Arms (BSA) motorcycles only. In 1964, it moved to a new location in Falls Church, Virginia, and changed the company name to Cycles Incorporated. The new location offered ten times the floor space, allowing the company to grow by adding big-name franchises and additional product lines through the years 1965 and 1972.
The store relocated once more before finally moving to Falls Church, Virginia - its current location – in 1986. This move brought another name change: Coleman PowerSport, which was chosen to better reflect the broad range of products carried. The present location occupies 42,000 square feet, a remarkable comparison to the initial one-man operation in a small 800-square-foot facility. We credit this incredible evolution to Mr. Dillard Coleman. He built an organization with as many as one hundred and fifty employees in peak season, and 80,000 square feet between two locations (Falls Church and Woodbridge).
In 1995, with the thought of expanding the Woodbridge location, the company had the luxury of designing and building a dealership from the ground up. In 1996, Coleman Powersport opened a 38,000-square-foot state-of-the-art dealership in Woodbridge.
With Mr. Coleman’s retirement in 1999, the two dealerships were sold to POWERride Motorsports, Incorporated, making them part of a larger organization. As a part of the change of ownership, the company name was changed to Coleman Powersports (with an “s”), as it remains today.
For over 53 years, Our goal has been to offer the best selection and to share the powersport lifestyle through brands such as Honda®, Yamaha, Kawasaki®, Suzuki, Ducati, Polaris®, Slingshot®, Can-Am®, and Sea-Doo®.
Mr. Coleman’s daughter, Kim Harrison is currently our General Manager. She continues to run the company with some of the original philosophies of her father and we have embraced new technology and new ideas for the company to be on the leading edge as we continue to evolve in our industry. We are always evaluating different products and brands that come into the industry. Our goal is to provide our customers with the best product lines and unparalleled service for another 50 years.”
