“Of the eight machines first purchased from you, six were sold and the other two put into rental service by ourselves. We figured those rental machines, being ridden, would be our best salesmen, and they have proved just that. Incidentally, we thereby accidentally discovered a surprisingly profitable venture-that of renting Servi-Cycles. We rent a machine at 50 cents per hour to boys and girls, and frequently some young man rents two-one for his girl and one for himself. Our records showed a clear profit upon the rental of these two machines of 257.6% on our investment for a two-months period or 128.8% clear profit on our investment each month. The machines are going good, even better than when new, and the only mechanical attention given them has been minor adjustments and the repair of two punctures. To date, neither machine has been wrecked or damaged beyond ordinary wear and tear. When you consider the number of green riders who have rented them it seems to bear out the statement they are entirely safe.
