This week’s eBay wandering led us to some unusual discoveries, the coolest of which is this sweet Rickman. This 1974 Rickman CB750 was found by the current owner in a small Oklahoma bike shop without a title. The owner has since acquired a bonded Texas title for the bike, which is fully transferrable.

The enigne is from a K2 CB750, which has about 3,000 miles on it since it was rebuilt.

The original kits from Rickman included the full rolling chassis. The builder then paired the pieces from the kit with stock parts from a Honda CB750, mainly the engine, electrical system, instruments, side covers, exhaust system and front brake master cylinder. The kit consisted of the nickel-plated frame, suspension, wheels, brakes, tank, seat, fairing and clip-on bars.

The bike appears to be in surprisingly good shape, though the current owner notes that the fork tubes need to be re-chromed and the tires should be replaced as they are old and dry. If you’re interested in a Rickman CB750, follow this auction carefully, as these bikes don’t come up for sale too often. Good luck! Too see the auction, go here.
