The Raleigh Bicycle Company was first established in 1885 in the United Kingdom, named after the street that the first shop was on. The company opened more shops and in 1899 began building motorcycles, exporting their vehicles to countries across Europe and North America through the 1960s. Rampar is a shortening of the name for the American branch of distribution, called Raleigh America Parts. The rights to the name Raleigh USA were bought by the Huffy Corporation in 1982, and both Raleigh and Huffy continue to sell bikes across the world. Today Raleigh bikes and motorcycles are treasured collectors items, and Raleigh is one of the oldest bicycle companies in the world.
