About the employer

In the winter of 1958, Bill Newis and his wife Barbara opened a shop selling and repairing cycles. In the following year, Raleigh produced its first cycle with an engine, the Moped, which they sold through their cycle outlets. This changed a young cycle shop into a young motorcycle shop. In the 1960's, the Suzuki franchise was added.
