If you are 70s child eou will know all about the Raleigh Chopper
The Raleigh Chopper brought the style of Easy Rider to the backstreets of Britain in the 70s. It took the UK youth bike market by storm and probably saved Raleigh from financial disaster.
The Chopper was a distinctly different bike for young people and was a first choice Christmas present. However, it was criticised for some aspects of its safety. The Chopper became distinctly unfashionable in the 1980s, when BMX became the latest craze.
And girls was cool.
