1973 RICKMAN TRIDENT Various snapshots of my Rickman-Trident, Serial #1029r. I no longer have the bike. It is in New Mexico somewhere. The tank is aluminum. You know the rest, engine number matches frame, Rickman forks, Borianni (sp) rims, Rita electronic ignition, German electronic tach, temporary headlight... <engine blueprinted by Mitch Klemph, 1979> Fibreglass? Where is all that neat Metisse stuff? *sigh*, I had the glasswork, fenders, lights, etc, stored in my brother's basement along with my Yamaha TD250 gp road racer. The Rickman and Yamaha body parts were painted the same colors. Someone wanted to buy the gp bike. I asked my brother to take care of it. The buyer gets the the Yamaha and gets away with all the Metisse parts, too. I didn't discover it for months. The lady is Sharon Smith. john stafford The images were scanned directly from 35mm B&W negatives, not prints.
