despite such cunning marketing strategies, the raleigh moped - now known by collectors as the rm1 - was not a success in the extremely competitive new 49cc market. though it was sturdily built, the raleigh had no suspension, and no gearbox or clutch. the model was only made for 2 years, and in 1960 raleigh imported and sold the french mobylette as its replacement. interestingly, the raleigh moped rm1 - a british-built machine sold at a time when the 49cc market was dominated by foreign competition - had another claim to fame - because the engine of the rm1 is actually derived from the minimotor!
