my older brother had the Boxer and then as he moved on to the bigger bikes which was about every two years or less I had his hand me downs.

Makes sense pal

A whole range of classic Raleigh bikes, be worth a bob or two now!

Accidents, I bet we have all had a few, been over the handle bars a few times as a youth, bit of gravel rash and the odd bump here the there, all part of growing up. Been off a couple of times of late on my mountain bike too

Difference is I wear a helmet, armoured jacket and knee pads nowadays

The budgie was as well had that as my first bike at the age of six for Christmas my older brother had the Boxer and then as he moved on to the bigger bikes which was about every two years or less I had his hand me downs.
One week later after Christmas my brother dared me for a pack of football stickers to follow him down a steep hill near our house I built up that much speed halfway down and got speed wobble and had to ditch it into a lamppost, it catapulted me face plant style into the concrete lamppost and I ended up in the middle of the road knocked out for a split second, my brother who was in front was giving a backie to a friend of mine who couldn't even ride a bike when he heard a car screech to avoid me, he looked back see me in the road jumped of his bike with my mate freewheeling on towards a roundabout ran back up the hill and got the old boy in the car that had stopped to take me home (told him our address) which we were only a few hundred yards away from, my face was a mess severed my top lip in about four places scuffed one of my eyebrows off and broke my nose.

The old boy had given me a white hankie to hold to my face to catch the blood my blonde hair had turned a blood soaked orange by now lay on the back seat of his car, when he got me home he carried me to my front door my mum answered and I still had his hankie over my face, he said to her " I think I have your son here to which she replied "no cant be my son has blonde hair"

THE BUDGIE

1977 good job it wasn't Jimmy Saville who stopped the car

I now also remember,my next door neighbour Paul,now Paul had older parents,who were very clever,so by the time he was about eight,he knew all the Latin names of fish,birds and insects..

Anyway Paul had for his birthday a black Raleigh Chopper with snazzy decals,very smart..

So off we go,Paul is in front,brand new bike,first ride..I'm behind,we are going as fast as can be...

Paul anchored up,I went into the back of him...

Tears,....!!

Yeah it's a welcome break from the gloom. Good call mate.

I remember setting up a ramp for my tomahawk to see how many people I could jump over - Evel kenievel style. ... missed Alan kendall's head by inches!

I'm enjoying this,makes,brings back memories.

I go on youtube,and look at all the different versions of the Chopper,would love a Sprint,or ten speed version,Mk1,in orange..!!

Looked at Mk,3,but they ain't the same,they gone all elf n safety,with no proper banana saddle...

I'm still after a mint 1980s Dawes Galaxy, in burgundy.. lol..
