The Raleigh experts will know!


I heard it was Renton, at one time. Somewhere down by Boeing Field and the Boeing plants there. It's kind of Seattle-Renton-Tukwilla-Burien-Southcenter all smushed together in that nabe.

Edit: check out the last paragraph on this old Raleigh USA catalog. "...proudly manufactured in Raleigh's new high tech manufacturing facility located near Seattle, Washington."
