Hi Steve,

How d'you work that out? By '72, BSA and Triumph had stopped factory racing and, generally, triple racers were struggling to make an impact. Rickman made frame kits and '72 T150's are hardly uncommon: anyone could unite the two. In GB, while you don't exactly trip over 'em, they aren't rocking horse poo either.

Hth.

Any chance of your frame number?
I am trying to trace info on my bike
Frame number 974R 2/72 was built on 24/1/1972 the customer was RGM (RJM?)engine number either LHASS1S or 551S Joe at Rickman 01367-870630 informs me that they converted many Bonnie metisse frames but very few triple frames were built.
Thanks
all the best Chris

Saw that bike at Daytona where it was competing in the AHRMA Vintage races - not sure which class though. Anyway, think it was the same bike as it had Baxter's name on it. It now has a blue tank though.

Unfortunately don't know how it placed as I don't know the rider's name. Would be interested to know that.

Anyway, sure looked and sounded great (as all triples do).

Heya Britbodger: you are right about the triples sounding great. Friends I ride with tell me she sounds like a range rover without mufflers.

In case anyone is interested that Triple can be seen in action at Daytona on www.ahrma.com under events and results section/2nd day photos/no 6 photo #DSC_0511

The bike is owned by Baxter Cycles and ridden by Geir Jacobsen from Norway (hope I got my facts right). It finished a very good 2nd in the 750 Sportsman class to another triple owned and ridden by Jesse Morris.

Sweet bike! I have a 1971 T-150V that at one time someone put a 4LS front wheel on. When I got it the wheel was "out the door" but I got a the rest of it. Even has original paint. Will be taking it to S.F. bay area next month, if anyone wants it. I would prefer to swap it for a new (Hinkley) Triumph. I did put an original front wheel back on by the way. Runs too.

Randy Baxter's Rickman/Trident has matching engine/frame numbers: #1329R. It is a true triple frame, and not a Rickman twin frame cobbled to fit the triple. In fact, The Rickman brothers saw it race at Bonnevile and signed the tank in sheer joy to see it again.

That bike was once mine. I got it almost new in '74. It was not street titled at the time. Randy rode it once, then I sold it in New Mexico and Randy sought it and bought it several years later. Baxter has modified the engine quite a bit since.

Randy Baxter's Rickman/Trident is the real thing. There were many Tridents put into twin frames, but only a few triple frames made. If you were to stop by Randy's shop you would see the Rickman Twins signed the tank at Daytona. They were delighted to see it there.

Randy's frame is 1329R. The engine has the same number.

How do I know? I owned the bike before Randy. He saw it in Des Moines, Iowa (broke the side-stand, the heavy hitter he is), I moved to New Mexico, sold it there and told Randy. He tracked it down and bought it. He's done huge mods since then.

Frame number 1329 was for a Triumph TR6 or T120
supplied to John Judge at RGM Luton in April 73
I have been told that a police order for Tr6's was cancelled
and the frames made for them were converted to T150 spec
maybe this is one of them, John Judge was the sole official
supplier of T150 frames although he did supply other Rickman
frames for other models, and Rickmans did supply T150 frames
to some customers direct. I have a frame I purchased from John Judge however I don't know how to upload pics to this forum so
cant send a picture.

This is an original Rickman Trident racing frame. It was one of 11(?) made specifically for racing Tridents, and they had no frame numbers. Why would a racing frame need a number?

This was prepared by a dealer in Luton, (John Judge?) but was never raced. It was on display in the showroom until Jeremy Bennett of Bedford bought it and put it on the road. As it had no frame number Jeremy stamped his initials and a number, JB 001R, as a frame number. I bought it in 1980.

I subsequently saw it at Len Haggis', the Gold Star specialist showroom, in 1988. It by this time had become a full blown racing machine, he wanted 2950 for it. He also had a Vincent Rapide B Series that needed light restoration for 6500. If only!!
