Some of the mid's straight gauge frames had serial numbers starting with a single letter which was towards the end of the alphabet. This new system applied to the high-end i. Reynolds frames, and involved the placing of a character at the beginning of the serial number. The character began at the start of the alphabet, and indicated year of manufacture. Detail about the numerals that follow the alphabet are sketchy, and are presumably sequential serial numbers of some kind.
So, Raleigh is relaunching the Chopper onto our roads in a bid to recapture the spirit of the s and command a bigger slice of Britain's new love affair with bicycles. Originally designed to mimic the kind of American motorbikes ridden by Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper in the film Easy Rider, the Chopper stood out with its "stick shift" three speed gearing and cow horn handle bars. Now it wants to reincarnate the bike as a British design classic in the same mould as the Mini or Triumph motorcycle. Halfords, which is releasing a limited number of the flaming red Hot One, claim Raleigh have put the bike back into production following demands from sentimental parents.
The Chopper was introduced at American trade shows in January but it was not until April when Raleigh Choppers were available for public to purchase. The rear hoop above the seat resembled a dragster anti roll bar " sissy bar ". Even the kickstand was designed to give the stationary bicycle a lean reminiscent of a parked motorcycle. The Chopper bike was sold as a "must have" item and signifier of "coolness"  for many children at the time.
