Zipper Bike

I had a friend as a kid who had a bike called a Zipper. I don't know the manufacturer but it was just like a Chopper and probably just as rare and collectable now. It was bright yellow and cool as anything. I have just bought a Chopper at an auto jumble in pretty good order. It is a mk. 2 1972. My wife and had them as kids and reminisced about them so when we found this one we had to buy it and ride it!

    My Dad got me a Dawes Zipper in about 1973/4 It must have been cheaper than a Chopper I usually got the copy instead of the real thing. But I loved my lime green Zipper I customised it with indicators and tassels. A furture Harley rider in the making. Love to see a photo of one.

    ...I got it on my 6th birthday in 1972, it had stabilisers and handlebar tassles - but not for long! Thanks to it being so much lighter than my friend's Choppers I could always beat them in a race - although with no gears my legs would be flying! My Dad had a Dawes racer which is why he chose it instead of a Chopper.
