Pete went off to WWII, while away his father ran the business. After WWII, Pete became a Schwinn bicycle dealer and at this time started into motorized vehicles. First was the Whizzer then Indian motorcycles, AJS, BSA, Matchless, all at the original store. He opened a second store in Towson in the 1950’s which also sold Evinrude outboard engines and had a hobby store. In the late 1950’s he sold Maruchan, Laverda, Lambretta, Bultaco, Vespa, Gillera, American Eagle and Cushman. He became a Honda dealer on July 9, 1963.
He opened the Bel Air store in 1967 and the Severna Park store in 1970. At one time Pete’s Cycle had 7 stores with either bicycles or motorcycles. Thru the 70’s and 80’s he picked up Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki.
In the mid 1980’s, Pete went into semi-retirement. His children started running the business on a full time basis. In April of 2000, Pete’s Cycle moved out of it’s original location of 62 years, to a much larger store on Bel Air Road in Baltimore. Today, Pete’s Cycle has 3 locations still run by his 5 children. We are very proud to be celebrating our 75th year.
