1970 Velo Schauff Chopper After seeing an original unwrapped 70's Raleigh Chopper sell for £945 on eBay I thought I'd look out my bike from the era. It was called a Schauff and very similar indeed to this one, although it was Orange IIRC. Had the same higher backrest and fake suspension on front. (I've found a few similar derivatives with lower backrest). It was a Christmas present early 1970s. In retrospect it looks like the BMW of Chopper bikes. Thanks Mum & Dad x
1970 Raleigh Chopper ad. I wish they were still just $59,99! My MK1 Girly Chopper was rare and can sell for up to $2,000 in mint condition on eBay now. The girls version was only made in 1970, and there were a limited number of them made.
