I noticed CHiPS is currently showing on ForcesTV. used to watch it as a nipper in the early 80s...not sure I dare check it out in case it turns out to have been bobbins all along...

Just started seeing this show again on Forces TV ,all the memories come flooding back as a teenager wanting a bike like that ,sadly only got as far as a yamaha RD 250 ,but still got the feeling of speed .You have turned out a fine model ,just started on the Revell police bike the Harley Davidson, well done .

Don't look at - I did and to modern eyes it's pretty awful.  Avoid it and keep the good memories.

Had to stop by and say what an awesome build and finish. Absolutely looks like the real bike. Fantastic work sir!

 

CHiPs memory? Oh yes! I was obsessed with the show back in the 70s. I had a chopper style bike back then. Not a Raleigh, but similar, Italian made if I remember rightly and bigger than a Raleigh Chopper. I used to strap a big solid state AM/MW/Air Band radio onto the back of my bike with the aerial up and ride the streets CHiPs stylee seeking out crime to solve. Trouble is, the then leafy streets of Westcliff on Sea were a bit short on Californian highway style crime to solve, so after a bit of riding around with the radio tuned into Westcliff nick, I'd retire back home for a glass well earned of Cresta.
