A British legend takes another

ride around the block




Every generation has its symbolic products and the Chopper was the essential bike of the 70s.  When those red lined tyres rolled onto our streets, cycling was never going to be the same again.  And for a long time there has been a void in the style bike market…until now that is.  Because for a limited time only, the Chopper is back.


A milestone in influence and design, the iconic Raleigh Chopper re-launches in April 2004 and retails at £199.99.


The bike’s original design by Alan Oakley, the then Chief Designer at Raleigh, remains largely unchanged on the new version.  Available only in the original Infra Red, the materials in the bike’s production are taken from the original Chopper concept, even using the original tyre mould from the 70s.
