The Price Of History For Raleigh

British cycle brand Raleigh is up for sale according to an article in the Guardian.

Despite celebrating being part of the cycling world for 125 years this year (2012), it seems to brand is losing too much money for it's current owners.

Raleigh is not just a brand limited to Britain, many childhood cycling dreams of my generation in New Zealand featured Choppers and Grifters... in fact I had a neighbour with a blue Grifter that I thought was the best bike ever!

No doubt the purchase will result in a realignment of the brand with it's potential new owner, Accell, but hopefully it could be come another Saracen success, rescuing an old brand and returning it to glory.
