SYRACUSE, N.Y. – A PG&A retailer and customizer has moved into a new store that will let it branch out into light motorcycle service like oil changes and accessory installations.

Oil City Customs moved from Salina earlier this month. The new store, formerly Vengeance Cycles, is right around the corner from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que, which got its start catering motorcycle shows along the East Coast.

"We just knew we had found the right place," Luigi Pascarella, one of Oil City's owners, told the Post-Standard.

The store carries riding apparel including custom-designed items, sunglasses, helmets and leathers. The shop also provides screenprinting and embroidery services and reflective embellishments.

Pascarella and partner Tracy Budzielek originally planned to focus on custom wholesale shirts for corporate clients when they started the business. Their printing equipment gave them the opportunity to expand into other areas, so they started exhibiting some designs at motorcycle shows and adding more biker elements.

"We kind of brought it all together in one business," Pascarella said.
