Parkpre Italy are completely seperate company to Parkpre USA, they used to be the distributors of Parkpre USA bikes in Italy before it all went wrong for them in 1998. I have had contact with them in the past, they certainly make quality bikes.

From Parkpre USA FAQ page:

Q: Who is Parkpre Italy and are you the same company?
A: They used to be the Italian distributor and kept the brand going in Italy after the US office closed down. We are two completely two separate companies.

&

Q: What's that website Parkpre.com?
A: It's somewhat of a cult site managed by guy named Chris (surname removed) in the UK. We were flattered when we first saw it. It's amazing how wide spread Parkpre was in the 90's. :wink:
