Everytime I see a kid on a chopper bike it gives me the willies. The other day I watched a Mom and Dad send their child on down the street on one. Three horrible observations from me:
1. No Head Protection!!
2. Biking against traffic
3. The boy could not handle the bike at all. It was very unstable with the long front forks.

These parents should have been ticketed!!!

Do you really think that the first two things would have been any different if the kid had been on any other type of bike? Not likely. It says more about parenting than the style of bike.

You'll probably get a more friendly reception in the Alt Bike Culture section of this forum, Matan. Here are some links to get you started with manufactured choppers:


Giant Choppers
Giant Cruisers
Electra Cruisers
Nirve Cruisers and Choppers
Schwinn Stingray

As for that specific bike - try googling it.

As already stated 1 and 2 are not to do with it being a chopper, was 3 because of the design or the fact it was a first ride, sounds more likley from the senario you outlined,.
Any how don't assume choppers are unstable mine are rock steady even at 70 kph and make for very relaxed cruising.
