KAWASAKI TRIPLE LEGEND Rick Brett has decided to sell his unrivalled collection of famous two-strokes. Rick was based in Nottingham before relocating to Michigan in the US and establishing a Triple Museum in a renovated railway goods yard.
After 40 years of collecting he says he has “achieved his goal of having every Kawasaki triple model in every colour as sold in the US,” and is now selling off the collection to move on to a “house-build project”. Most of the 45 bikes are in near mint and unrestored original condition, with some still in their original shipping crates and some still bearing their UK plates. A 1974 H2B with one mile on the clock is currently priced at $24,500.
On his website Rick says: “Every bike will be taken out of storage and recommissioned. All bikes will be in running order when sold, or otherwise stated.”
Bids on the triples need to be in by midnight on August 5. Visit rbtriples.com to view the collection.Enjoy more Classic Bike Guide reading in the monthly magazine. Click here to subscribe.
