Hi! I, like most i guess, had a Raleigh Chopper when i was 14. It was an Orange MK1 and i honestly can't remember what happened to it! I am currently suffering from a mid life crisis (this year i bought a 1973 Garelli Tiger Cross as i had one of these as a kid as well...) and am topping up my collection with (hopefully) an Orange MK2 chopper very soon. Hope to be able to add to the site, get involved in the banter and get some good advice!
Wouldn't mind seeing a pic of the Tiger Cross If you have one? I had the chance to buy one several years ago for just £300, like an idiot I passed on the deal. Always regretted it. Wouldn't mind getting a AP50 or even a SS50 someday for nostalgic reasons
I had a Yamaha SS50 which they had to change the name to FS1E after Honda threatened them with legal action for Trademark infringement on the Honda SS50. My mate also had a Green Garelli Tiger Cross Special. The same guy had been the first of the gang to get a Chopper. A MK1 Horizon Blue in Oct 1971. Those were the days!
