For Anthony Bucci, Matthew Kull, Nick Auger and Steve Christini, all it took was one night at North Bowl and the groundwork for their motorsports company, RevZilla, was complete. After unveiling their Web site in November, the friends’ first retail location opened in January.
The Fabric Row shop caters strictly to the motorcycle enthusiast, offering a medium-to-high-end collection of jackets, boots, gloves, hats, shirts and helmets from brands such as Icon, Rev’It, HJC and Fox Racing. This brick-and-mortar RevZilla is only a small subsection of an online store that carries more than 50,000 products geared toward sport bike, sport touring, dirt bike and ATV riders. According to Bucci, it’s an answer to the lack of motorcycle lifestyle shops in Center City. “The nature of our store is going to be a destination store,” he says. “We thought it was a no-brainer for somebody to hop on their bikes, choose somewhere to cruise down through and come visit us.”
