Some amazing clunkers and early mtbs in the gallery of this article

Found some old scans on a drive whilst looking for something work related, but clearly got distracted! 🤣

Raleigh Chopper drawings from when I was a kid. Both Chopper Sprint (drop-bar variant!) and a more "standard" Chopper...

Me jumping on a Chopper (oh-er!) circa 2000. Sadly this bike (along with others) got stolen during Lockdown. 😭
One of many letters from Alan Oakley (the Chopper designer!) to me whilst I was editor of the Chopper Club fanzine "The Hot One"...

Choppers Out! 😎

"This bicycle, called the 'RELATIVITY Special', if pedalled at 90rpm, is designed to travel faster than the speed of light. This is proven by a description of the gear ratios on the sheets seen on the wall behind it. One revolution of the pedals sends the bike 6 times around the earth. (It is part of the art exhibition 'Circle of Time' that Pat Chirapravati curated now on display at California State University, Sacramento).
