  • Conway Trott began business in Bermuda over 50 years ago with Veloland, renting the Velo Solex moped to tourists visiting the island.
  • After meeting a Yamaha salesman on a visiting sailing yacht at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, Mr. Trott was introduced to Yamaha in Japan.
  • In 1960 World Distributors Ltd. was incorporated and began importing models such as A-7, AS-1, V90 and V80.
  • Trott was a true entrepreneur and was also the creator of Bermuda Tire & Retreading, which became the premier tire supplier of the Good Year brand.
  • After his passing in the early 1970’s, his son Toby led the two companies for the next three decades. Bermuda Tire & Retreading went out of business in 1995 but World Distributors Ltd. remained strong and the company was sold to Eugene Bothello and Michael Araujo in 2002.
  • The company acquired the cycle division assets of HWP Group at the beginning of 2012 and also bought the previous Wheels Cycles building as a base for its new operation, WD2, selling various models of Honda, Peugeot and Derbi motor cycles.
