Chassis Number: 6756G
Coys are pround to offer what must be considered to be the finest example of a Rickman Honda available on the market today. The Metisse Motorcycles certificate of Authenticity that accompanies this bike shows chassis number 6756G as having been manufactured on the 26th September 1979 for Bill Smith Motorcycles. It was, we are informed by the vendor, then purchased by Jack Gow Senior of Dundee who sadly died during motorcycle race testing.
Its low mileage can be verified by MOT test certificates, which indicate that this bike had almost certainly been part of a collection:
August 1987 – 934 miles
March 1989 – 1041 miles
April 1990 – 1125 miles
April 1996 – 1311 miles
August 1998 – 2428 miles
February 2004 – 3272 miles
In 2004, Pascal Regen purchased the bike and took it to France and from there it passed into current ownership in 2007.
