In 2007 Schwinn made two replica bikes to commemorate the old Krate choppers of the 60s and 70s. They were supposedly a limited run so as to be future collectors items but as they were pretty expensive people didnt buy them (much like the remade Raleigh Choppers). There have been a few being sold off on UK ebay at around £300 but Kev found a wholesale bike company that had some new ones still boxed. They were listing them without the words Schwinn or Chopper in the title as an auction only, he bought the Coppertone well cheap and gave me the company's details. I rang them but they wouldnt sell me one, said it had to be bought via ebay. After bidding and missing three i finally bought was turned out to be their last one, a Grey Ghost for less than any of the others had gone for. Tidy.
