A bit of history and some stories about vintage bikes for sale

Rickman Triumph

I have written plenty about the Rickman brothers and their motorcycles so I won’t go over all that again. They have a great story that if you are interested in Iconic motorcycles and motorcycling people you should read. From Motocross to Roadracing, the Rickman Brothers were and still are, very influential.

Today I found a very nice Rickman Cafe Racer based around a ’73 Triumph T140 750. The motor has been rebuilt, upgraded with an electronic ignition…points and condensors can be a bit annoying at times. The bike rolls on new Excel aluminum rims ( I would have gone with classic Akront’s…) and new rubber. It’s a nice bike and even though I think it’s a bit pricey, in the collector world, it’s not. This would make a very nice rider not a collector piece. I like it without the fairing actually. A very classic Cafe Racer.
