Yes, Huffy licensed the Raleigh name in the US in the 1980s. Their bikes were sourced from Taiwan and Japan, and the really high-end stuff still came from the UK. I have a 1983 Raleigh Marathon, made in Taiwan, made of Raleigh 502 tubing, and a 1983 Super Course, made in Japan of Raleigh 555SL.
And yeah, I think it should be 501 in the other post, not 531.
I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.
