I think that the company that made Ajax or Vim was taken over by some other company. They renamed one of the products after Syphillis.

The Raleigh Chopper is not completely dead and forgotten.. one Brit cyclist has engaged in various challenges riding a Raleigh Chopper in recent years.

Here he is a few years ago cycling up the Tour de France Monster Climb Mont Ventoux on a Raleigh Chopper overtaking club cyclists on their four grand Carbon Fibre bikes along the way...
