They were the dogs bollocks back in the day but the seats made me feel like I wish I was a woman. Harder than a jail cell bed!

I always wanted a chopper. I ended up with a Chipper. It was a lot better than my first bike though - That had solid rubber tires and instant brakes that made you go over the handlebars if you pulled the front brake instead of the back!

I've got a bike, you can ride it if you like.  It's got a basket, a bell, and things to make it look good.  I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.

You don't deliver bread up a steep hill with it, do you?

The Budgie is where it was at!!   It was a kids bike but wow, it was so light...  and easily damaged.   I think my cousin had a Boxer or Striker.   I had a raleigh Burner BMX with yellow mag wheels, my mate had the ultra burner, I was jealous as his was basically completely chrome underneath the gold transparent paint!!

Ahh, ok, I must admit, I've never been a massive music fan, other than Slay Radio.

Before I pass comment, how old do you think those two lasses were when the photos were taken?

 

NQ.

Bottom one older but still early 20s... but how old are they now?  In their 70s?

That first one on the grifter about 21 either way she can come round here and ride on my chopper!!! (don't put a picture up of what she looks like now) just leave me with my thoughts.

I guess it's scary to think the girls in the banned 'Girls on Film' video will be knocking on a bit now too..
