DAVID SINCLAIR joined Raleigh on a Youth Training Scheme around 1979.
“I needed to get some work experience and to earn so that I could deal with everyday issues. I had a good spell there, but it wasn’t for me. I found it dirty and noisy and assembling bike parts on the production line wasn’t for me. It wasn’t an amazing job it was just about getting the experience. I knew it wasn’t for me. I worked there for under a year before leaving.”David Sinclair
