    My sister used to have a chopper, an ambulance reversed over it after it pulled up in our street, and she left it in the road

    How times have changed - if that happened nowadays, the kid would go and lie next to the bike and pretend the ambulance had hit them, then claim £20k through injuriesdirect.com

    Yea, I had a chopper.. Loved it.. Best thing I liked about that bike was the gear shifter, very car like it was.. I also had a CB radio bolted across the hadlebars and car battery on the rear rack, was tricky not pulling wheelies everywhere, lol.. My mate back then had a grifter, heavy tank bikes they were.. He had pimped his up with real working brake lights..

    If I found a chopper now I would probably keep it, but yea, they can fetch good money these days if its in good nick..
