1999 Scott Hice started Kappa in 1999.
I started it because I thought the modern frames had lost a lot of the style that the frames of the 1970's/1980's offered. The frames that were available all looked the same. So, I basically took the classic 1970's/1980's designs and modernized them. The Kappa frames are built tough, but still have that classic old school style.
2002 Kappa Bicycle Company, LLC was legally formed in 2002
2003 All Kappa frames are handmade.
We make about 200 frames per year, all by hand in Michigan, U.S.A.
Kappa products are mostly sold directly through our website at www.kappabmx.com. Kappa products are also available in a few bike shops in the U.S. We have shipped frames and components all over the world !
