    yes, a three gear shift stick,which I always thought was one of the coolest things about a Chopper. Seems silly to have remade them without it
    Saddle is different too

    Yeah, mine is a modern repro. So there have been a few changes to the original styling....like Daz said the ger shifts no longer on the cross beam bar, I read on some official Raleigh fans sight that the changes were made due to safety concerns i.e. coming off the bike and hurting your ahem crown jewels!

    I would have thought it was so you didn't have to take a hand off the steering to change gear..bloody nanny state
