  • The FT visits the Nottingham headquarters of the Raleigh Bicycle Company, founded in the 1880s and home of era-defining bikes like the Chopper, Grifter and Burner. The company enjoyed great success in the 1980s but has since come through turbulent times and is now focusing on eBikes.

    Nice to see they still have some of the old bikes on display, the old road with the grifter and burner made that new chopper look right out of place

    What's going on with the weird seat and long rear mudguard on the Chopper? Looks like crap.

    Don't worry... those parts will be manufactured in Britain once again in no time with Brexit just around the corner!
