East Coast Cycles and Imports, Inc., was incorporated in Florida in August of 1975. The owner, Ronald E. Jamis, entered the bicycle business in 1973. In 1979 Jamis entered the cruiser bicycle market with their  "Earth Cruiser" - A BMX Cruiser model, sold by retailers mainly in Florida and neighboring states. According to the Jamis website, the  Earth Cruiser was “a re-designed & re-engineered no-longer-classic-now-revolutionary cantilever cruiser that mixes equal parts fun & fashion and spurred the whole beach cruiser movement.”
