Check this Rickman I saw in the pits at Road America. It wasn't original, but it was VERY clean and sported a California plate.

PIPES

I need a set of pipes like that for a T100c and T120r. :cool:

Anyone know where I can find them?

Does anyone even know --

-- what model them pipes are from?

I have seen them on pictures of old desert sleds, but I have never found them in a catalog.
I know they are not OEM for Triumph.
My T100 has a set on it but I need a set for my 650 Bonnie I am planning on racing in the desert with.
It has high straight pipes on it now but before I fabricate heat shields and weld on spark arrestors on I would like to try to find pipes like these.
They don't burn modern riding gear up as easy. :eek:

My uncle has a Rickman just like the one in the picture. However, it is to ride NOT show. One of the best two tracking bikes in the world!:p

Rickman still sells this stuff

My boss Derek says Rickman still sells kits, bikes, parts.
BTW there is a 650 like in the picture for sale, a few blocks from me, for around 1500$$.

KWjams...

I will do some research and get back to you later...
Derek used to have a cherry one that he raced ahrma.
Betor forks, rickman primary cover, single carb head...
BTW, Kibblewhite Precision machine is reproducing their high lift tappet blocks out of ampco45 bronze, so you don't have to modify the cast iron ones for high lift cams, or if you are running a Al big bore cyl.

Same pipes???

No, the pipe system is not the same as the picutre. He uses exhaust pipes that run lower than these.
