1980 Kawasaki Rickman CR
No sooner does the RSBFS staff find what we believe is a rare bike, when another staff member finds vitually the same bike available only a short time later. Such is the feast or famine environment of rare, collectable sportbikes. Take this Rickman-framed Kawasaki 1000, for example. It was only last week that Ian posted a similar Rickman Kawasaki HERE.
From the seller:
This auction is for a 1980 Kawasaki Rickman 1000. Bike is original and in great condition.
Bike runs good.
AP Lockeed brakes, Front Double Disc
Super-Rare GOLD Starlite Wheels
Marzocchi rear shocks
Transmission and clutch work great.
Little smoke at start-up but clears out.
Speedometer cable broken
I have receipts for head port and polish
Andrews 2X Cams and Heavy-Duty valve springs
Yoshimura 1105 Piston Kit
Barnett EP Clutch Kit
Extra Rickman Sprockets
Turn signals with Rickman front signal mounts.
The winning bid for the last Rickman Kawasaki CR was $7,801 in a no-reserve auction. This bike should bring similar money (if not higher), although the auction at the time of this writing is much lower. The current bid is at $2,550, and there is a reserve in place. If you missed the last one, here is your chance to own a peice of Rickman Competition Replica history – chrome-moly tubing and all! .
