Rickman Motorcycle

Rickman Motorcycles was established by Don and Derek Rickman and they manufactured motorcycles from 1960 through to 1975. Initially the frame designs were for scrambles, and then for road racing. Later, in 1966, road bikes were produced as well. The first street legal bike used a Triumph Bonneville engine.

I have no idea what kind of bike this is or was but I like it a lot. I assume its a Japanese production model that’s been customized and is probably more “Harley” than British in design, but is a great looking bike, so it goes on the site.

The all time classic British bike. This one was a bit the worse for wear but still always a treat to find one.

Honda CB 750 Four

•July 13, 2008 • 2 Comments

The CB 750 Four, released in 1969, brought disc brakes and an inline four cylinder engine to a production bike, and put this Japanese bike on the map as an all time classic. A nail in the coffin of British bikes but lacking some of their magic. Discovery Channel ranked it #3 in their Greatest Ever Motorcycles.

Found this red Yamaha sr 400 on Aoyama Dori. Photo quality isn’t good because I didn’t have my camera and had to use my phone camera. Great color and cafe racer handlebars.
What’s a cafe racer?
