A Brief History of the Marque
The brothers Peter and Age Geertsma inherited the Gedo bicycle wholesale company from their father. The firm F. Geertsma B.V. of Dokkum had opened a shop and wholesale business in 1937, and later built bicycles with auxiliary engines branded Gedo-Victoria in 1949 or earlier. They also produced the prototype Bitri scooter in collaboration with the founders of the Bitri scooter firm, also of Dokkum. This first scooter was branded Gedo-Victoria, and it is believed only the one was built. It is known to exist as late as 2010.
