1970 BSA A65 THUNDERBOLT 650 - $7,800
This bike is in fantastic shape, meticulously restored, starts up on one kick and cruises like a new bike. The engine and frame are matching, 1600 miles on an engine/transmission rebuild by Rick Price/Rabers. Has electronic ignition. The title is clean. You won’t find a better BSA of this vintage. It’s no longer a show bike, it’s just a terrific rider. This bike won the President Award in BSAOC North South Rally in 2002 and 1st place at the 2003 California BSA Rally. I’m selling this bike because I have another daily rider and I don’t get around to riding the BSA. It’s a thrilling ride and it deserves a proud new owner. I have a list of all work done to the bike and it is well over my asking price. Also, I have the original Owner’s Handbook and the original BSA Replacement Parts List book.

If interested, contact me by email or phone (no text inquiries, please).

1953 RICKMAN METISSE-TRIUMPH - $17,000, Woodland Hills CA
We have a unique, STREET LEGAL Rickman Metisse Triumph Mark III for sale! This is an oil-in-frame bike, powered by a 500cc Triumph twin. The engine also features an AMAL 386 Monoblock carb, Megacycle Cams, and a Lucas competition magneto that was recently rebuilt. For better shifting, the engine has also been mated with a rebuilt BSA SCR 4-speed gearbox, and the BSA primary case was machined to fit perfectly with the Triumph Crankcase. Bruce Holland Motorcycles in Boise, ID has rebuilt the motor & there is paperwork showing the details of the rebuild. This Rickman has original magnesium hubs in the front and rear, and are laced by Buchanan's in Azusa to rare Dunlop spring steel rims. DOT approved Pirelli dual sport tires are currently installed on the wheels. A Sammy Miller kickstart lever unit is on the bike, which allows the lever to fold in closer to the frame, along with all new cables, grips, twist grip, levers & handlebars. The Rickman frame is nickel-plated & new, plus comes with a Certificate of Authenticity that states it was built specifically for the engine - allowing it to be titled as a 1953 model, instead of a special construction!

1970 Triumph TR6 Tiger 650  -  $10,000

This is a chance to acquire a piece of history as I'm thinking about selling my rebuilt/restored 1970 TRIUMPH TIGER 650 Tr6r!! Motor was rebuilt bottom up when I got it and then I had Steve Walker ( triumph restorer over 30 yrs ex factory trained) replace a few parts to original! Things like Lucas sealed beam glass light, original rectifier, dunlops K78s,rebuilt forks, new brake pads,points,plugs, and other factory parts. This baby looks awesome! This was Triumphs best selling year and color! The Tiger is a Bonneville with one Amal carb instead of two which makes it much easier to keep in sync, starts 1st or 2nd kick, sounds legendary. Offered at $10k firm! I do not need to sell so don't off waste my time with low offers. Bike has a paint flaw around gas cap where gas got into some paint before I got it but not a big deal unless your going to put it in shows. Snooze you lose as these were the coolest bikes until the Japanese invasion of the mid 70s. All #s match!  (760) 485-3240 Michael.  Santa Rosa CA; 12/19/14
