From Spacehopper to Chopper (with 3-speed Sturmey Archer gear hub!)

edit: Also note plastic AK47 and my first dog, a black lab we named "Huggy Bear" after the character from Starsky & Hutch.

woohoo, 70's-tastic! Spacehoppers were great. That wallpaper is brilliant as well. There's a company called 'timourous beasties' that charge and arm and a leg for that stuff now!

So true 'hobo, especially the chopper, on which i came a cropper many times.

Jun, someone nicked my Spacehopper, and my dad was hella pissed. I'd love to still own it. They're priceless to me.

Big 'n' little redline tires, tuck 'n' roll sissybar, and a big thumbs up! That's classic 70's style. Awesome, Nige.

Spiderbaby, Viv, thanks. I feel quite blessed to have grown up in the 70's :)

I never had a spacehopper as a child, but they were my absolute favourite of the 'toys I don't have' collection. At uni, much later, I bought one, and had some very happy times riding it up and down hotel corridors. Fantastic. Also, chopper FTW!

I saw a space hopper just like that last Saturday in a shop called Hawkins Bazaar. I'm thinking of getting DD one for Chrimbo.
