1970 Rickman Triumph 750cc Metisse Cafe Racer. The exceptional bike offered here has been built up using the very best components and artisans with an in-depth knowledge. Most CRs were built as a Café Racer, a spectacular looking machine that is beyond uncomfortable to ride, but this wears Roadster bodywork, a far rarer option. It has a shorter fuel tank, dual seat, forward-mounted footpegs and higher handlebars for far greater comfort. Hanging in the frame is a TR6SR engine, of 1966 vintage the last year of SR manufacture. Only 1,631 SRs were built in 1966 and a total of just over 3,000 in the 3-year run. At the top-end resides a very care Chantland 750cc kit. A highly collectible and rare part if you can find one, the Chantland kit is well-renowned as about the best upgrade available. To this, Amal Mk.II carburetors with alloy velocity stacks were installed, and the engine exhales via Dunstall-replica mufflers.
It starts easily, regularly on the first or second kick, and idles strong. The engine feels very tight and responsive and it shows great power. Brakes are excellent. Like, really, really surprisingly good! Suspension feels taut and now, the entire electrical system works perfectly.

Cosmetically, the bike is generally excellent. It was obviously built some time ago and there is a very minor surface rust evident if you look closely at a few components. Seat is perfect, as is bodywork. There is a small scuff in the tank’s front edge, pictured.
The bike would make a worthy addition to any collection, ticking all the collector boxes: great rarity, exceptional condition, and desirability. And, of course, it runs perfectly. It is a blast to ride. And fast.
