1974 Rickman 125cc Zundapp ISDT Team Replica: Beautiful condition, as near new as it could be!
VIDEO!! Bike in Action at:
I purchased this Rickman 125cc Motorcycle new in 1975 when I was 36 years old! Had a work related back injury that year and never road Off-Road again. Now I am 65 I have decided to bring this wonderful bike out of mothballs and get it to someone that can get the best out of it. It has been covered and carefully stored in a dry heated shop with all gas removed from carb and tank (no rust or varnish). It has much less than the 800 miles estimate (most of them are on the street) stated (the original speedometer failed at aprox 100 miles, Later I added VDO Enduro speedo but when I brought it out of storage it does not wok properly. I have taken Video (click on: Visit My Web Page) of this bike just a few days ago so you can know that every thing does work (except the new Speedo). It has very few flaws but I want to point them out. First the rear of the saddle is cracking (see photo below) I t must have had something spilled on it in the original crate back in 1974-75 because we noticed that the rear of the covering was stiff then, the rest of the saddle is still soft and in perfect condition. There is a web shaped checking on rear mudguard (see photo with dime next to checking to show size) it seems to be only in the gellcoat and only shows up because of wax residue in it. The fiberglass is not cracked or weak in this area and checking has never changed in 30 years! After fueling tank, ticking carb it started on 4th kick! I don't think you could find any motorcycle this age in this fine condition that has had NO RESTORATION! British Dunlop rims and Tires (NO Checking, Look and feel like New), Spanish Betor Fork Assembly, German Zundapp 125cc Power with Bosch Solid State Ignition, Lucas Electric's (some repairs to connections have been made, It is Lucas you know),
Preston Petty Skid Pan. Complete Rickman Factory Workshop Manual, Rickman Owners Handbook, and a Zundapp 125 Operation Manual are included. I acquired a metal crate from my local Honda Dealer and modified it and the Rickman is very securely anchored in place. Crate will be covered with Plywood before shipping for greater protection.
For safety reasons battery will not be sent with bike, they cost only about $10!

If it is picked up at my location no crating charge will be assessed. I will help with shipping arrangements on this end such as shipping from commercial site with fork lift (Saves much in shipping if receiver can arrange for bike to be shipped to commercial location with ability to take crate from back end of truck as most freight companies charge extra for residential delivery and deliveries that require lift gate on delivery truck. If we work together shipping cost can be kept as low as possible. I have contacted Roadway Express and they seem to want to work with me setting up satisfactory shipping.
