Tony on a Chopper which was the coolest bike in Britain to have in the mid-70s.
The Raleigh Chopper was a wheelie bike, manufactured in the 1970s by the Raleigh Bicycle Company of Nottingham, England. Its unique design became a true 70s cultural icon.
The Chopper bike was based on the look of a customised chopper motorcycle, made popular with films such as Easy Rider, and it was the "must have" item and signifier of coolness for many kids at the time.
