First produced by the Raleigh Bicycle Company of Nottingham, England in 1969, and the brainchild of the late Tom Karen OBE, the iconic Raleigh Chopper bicycle appeared in a number of films, TV series and even music videos throughout the 1970s and 80s, becoming not only a British staple, but eventually a global phenomenon. Its unique design - inspired by dragsters, beach buggies and "chopped" motorcycles - captivated public attention and throughout its production years (between 1969-2005) the Raleigh Chopper never lost its shine; at its inception it won the hearts and minds of kids as the coolest new toy on the block and the classic bicycles ultimately went on to become highly sought after vintage collectables dripping with nostalgia, re-popularised by a number of celebrities in the early 2000s.

More than 50 years after the Raleigh chopper's initial release, don't miss out on the chance to recapture some of your childhood joy with this blast from the past and ride home in style with a little slice of retro pop culture history!
