After talking to Elaine and trev at the ace about old pictures of past time I thought I dig some out, this is the earliest picture of me on a Raleigh chopper I have, it was 2004 and the mark 3 was probably brand new that day.

yes the bike was my mums but this was the first time I got the chance to ride a Raleigh chopper, not long after this we had the full set of mark 1 mark 2 and mark 3, I can't count how many I have now but this bike started it all. :D :D

If you remember this you were at the first ever meet at Billing, 1999 I think.
Back in the days when me and Vince only had one bike each and only one of us even had a chopper.
The only other people I remember that I can name were Richard and Ed Pratt.
There were some of the original Chopper club members none of whom we see any more. Can only remember 'Welly' from that lot.

It was Billing. The guy who organised it was into Ford Corsairs or Cortinas. I think he emigrated to Australia or something.
