Details:
The 6th annual Motorcycle Hall of Fame Concours d'Elegance, scheduled for Saturday, October 6, 2007, again promises the rare opportunity to admire over 100 of the country's most exceptional motorcycles. This year, the by-invitation-only event also extends a special welcome to owners of classic Rickman motorcycles, in honor of Don and Derek Rickman's induction into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame. The Rickman brothers will personally attend and will select two bikes from the Rickman Showcase for a special Concours d'Elegance award.

Known for their fiberglass body designs and lightweight nickel-plated frames, British Rickman machines were prominent in motocross and road racing in the 1960s. The special Rickman chassis kits were made available for multiple brands, from dirt bikes like Montesa and Zundapp to the famous Rickman Hondas and Kawasakis - the state of the art caf racers in the early Seventies.

The Rickman Showcase is open to all Rickman machines. One bike already scheduled to be shown is Craig Vetter's Kawasaki Z1 Rickman, last raced at Daytona in 1976, and currently residing in the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum's permanent collection. Craig Vetter will also be presenting Don and Derek at the Saturday evening Motorcycle Hall of Fame Induction ceremony.
