RALEIGH, N.C. - The Raleigh City Council on Aug. 9 presented Ray Price Inc. with a proclamation to commemorate the dealership's 30 years in business. Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane declared Aug. 6-11, 2012 as Ray Price Harley-Davidson Week, according to an announcement issued by the dealership last week.

The Top 100 Dealership is one of the region's most popular destinations. It has a racing museum, rider academy and a large selection of accessories and clothing in addition to the vehicles. Ray Price Inc.'s annual Capital City Bikefest, now in its eighth year, brings more than 70,000 people to Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh.

“At Ray Price Inc., we understand that when you respect your employees and the community you work in, you are rewarded with hard work and gratitude from all parties involved,” Price said during the ceremony. “I thank Mayor McFarlane and the entire Raleigh community for this proclamation, and more importantly, for a great partnership that has truly stood the test of time.”

The 30-year-old dealership, owned and operated by drag racing legend Ray Price, started out as Precision Cycle before morphing into Ray Price, Inc. and becoming a Harley-Davidson franchise. Today, the dealership specializes in Harley-Davidson and Triumph Motorcycles.
