Emergency services were called just after 8pm on Wednesday, June 21, to reports that a blue Yamaha motorcycle had been in collision with a black Ford Ka and a grey Volvo on the southbound A12 at Foxhall, just before the Brightwell Roundabout.
An air ambulance, police officers and several ambulance crews, including a SARS critical care paramedic, attended the scene and rushed Mr Chandler to Ipswich Hospital.
He died a short time later.
No-one else is believed to have been hurt in the collision.
Police are continuing to ask anyone who may have seen the vehicles prior to the collision or the crash itself, or who may have any dash cam footage of the incident, to contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team at Suffolk Police on 101, quoting CAD number 411 of 21 June.
