Here's a copy of an e-mail my Dad sent me recently about him riding and racing dirt bikes in the early 70's. I figured I would share the nostalgia.
Here are some pics of the dirtbike that I had that was a Rickman.
Bike floated around my hometown for several years and I got hold of it in late '72. It originally had a Bultaco 250cc engine. Side covers for the area under the seat had been lost during its wanderings from owner to owner. Motor was trashed when I got the bike so... I got hold of a 360 CZ engine and put it in the frame.
Pictures of the bike in yellow were taken after I had it together the first time.
