1969 Rickman

Congratulations to Roger Riddell of Huntington Beach for winning Bike of the Month. Welcome Roger on his first time to Vintage Bike OC.

Roger said he pieced this bike together from spare parts he had in his garage. Roger thinks the frame in a 1969 and the Triumph motor is a 1971. The Wheel hubs were machined to fit. The build is very recent, this may be it's first public viewing.
