The Pacer brand name and logo was created in 1976 by Portofino International Inc, PI, at 55 Lamar St, West Babylon, New York. Some of the early Italtelai’s were labeled as Portofino. By 1978, PI became Portofino Moped & Bicycle International Inc, PMBI, at 495 Smith St, Farmingdale New York. By 1980, PMBI sold the Pacer name and inventory to Aeon International Corporation, AIC, at 2165 Fifth Ave, Ronkonkoma, New York. By about 1982, AIC sold the Pacer name and parts to Marina Mobili Inc, MMI, at 146 W Commercial Ave, Moonachie New Jersey 07074. MMI imported and distributed Pacer mopeds and parts to USA moped shops until around 1990. All of this comes from the front covers of 3 owners manuals and 2 work shop manuals. Myron's Mopeds
