    I used to have the exact same bike shown here, except mine had two handlebar tubes (which we reversed to make them 'cooler'). I've not seen one since, and the memories of my cool blue lurve-machine have been rudely shattered... they do look cack:eek:

    I nearly broke my kneecap on the reversed handlebars too.

    Bloody right, I did, and when my Grandma bought me one my bloody Mum said it was too dangerous and sent it back :( RIP Grandma :(

    I have an original 1970's chopper sat in my loft waiting for the day when I have enough time to restore it properly. The handle bars have gone a bit rusty and a few other odds and sods needs fixing up.

    I might have to get her down and give her some loving attention.

    You'll be needing a can of the famous 'Stop Rust Chrome Cleaner' then ;)

    Yeah that bloody centre mounted gear shift was a nightmare when you braked suddenly.

    [Wij] I had a purple one. [/Wij]

    It died when pulling a wheelie, the handlebars snapped at the base. How I didn't rip my self open and deposit my knackers on our driveway on landing I'm not sure.

    I notice there's a Chopper bike owners club too. I wonder what they do... turn up at meets and take turns injuring themselves whilst riding?

    I yearned for one of these. Closest I got was its baby brother the Tomahawk. The are worth a bit now even if they need restored. I saw a rusted Chopper frame sell on ebay for £600 last year!!
