Lovely bike. I wonder if it's the same company that produces Rickman motorcycle frames in the uk? The Rickman text in on the catalogue above is certainly very similar to their text!

Re: 1984 Rickman Racing Pro

Wow, it looks amazing. I love the craftsmanship of that frame and fork, and how it looks.  Funny how the previous owner had the forks backwards.
Perfect color combo. The yellow plate brought it all together.
Sweet Ride! Nice Job!
