Locals Start Bike Business
Local Lithia and FishHawk residents Anthony Bevilacqua and Ray Amendola have started their own bike shop, Pride Cycles, which offers service, parts and accessories for all makes and models, including American and Metric Cruisers, and also street and dirt bikes, scooters and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). It also offers Baker Drive Train products, the leader in American V-twin drive train, and is a certified installation and warranty center. It also offers custom swing arm and wide tire conversions for V-twin and sport bike applications.
Pride Cycles offers part supplies and accessories from Drag Specialties, ICON and Parts Unlimited, with helmet and apparel coming from Alpinestars, SHOEI and ICON.
Service at the shop runs $72 per hour, plus the price of the work done to the bike. The shop also carries Razor products for Razor scooter, popular with children. “We are an authorized dealer and service center for Razor scooters for the kids,” Bevilacqua said.
“The biggest thing we want to emphasize is service,” he said. “We service just about anything.”
