Retro fans of the world delight! The Chopper is heading back to a street near you.

Raleigh are launching a World Cup 2006 Chopper in support of England's football campaign over in Germany.

Officially the 70s icon was reborn in 2004, although I can't really say that I've seen many around - not a new one anyway. You can, of course, purchase them from many bike stores at a RRP of £199.

Raleigh are doing their bit to support "our boys" in the World Cup, with the new England 2006 Chopper.

Raleigh have also signed up Nicole Cooke, who will be competing in the Commonwealth Games and World Championships and remains one of GB's hottest talents in cycling.

A spokes person from Raleigh UK said, "It is great to have Nicole onboard, she is a perfect example of home-grown talent something which Raleigh feel is incredibly important to the future success of cycling".

We are hunting out details of the England 2006 Chopper - we will keep you posted.
