Raleigh Chopper Bicycle

The iconic Raleigh Chopper was designed by Alan Oakley from Nottingham, home of Raleigh bicycles. The bike was inspired by the design of Peter Fonda’s motorbike in the classic movie Easy Rider.


The Chopper was so successful, Raleigh sold 1.5 million of them in the UK alone and the strange bike is credited with saving the company from bankruptcy.
