    I emailed the seller to suggest he sell the Rickman complete kit seperate, the 3 Z1 etc engines seperate, and get the modern stuff off of it. Much better chance of getting his $15000 asking price that way.

    Especially considering these frames were designed around extremely short forks and a 28 degree rake with 18" wheels and large ofset (2.25"?) triples. Most fork&triple swaps even with 17" wheels will result in ruined handling unless you want it to steer like a harley davidson or a dump truck. (Very short or slammed down height forks with clipons on top + Custom triples are pretty much the only way to go on a Rickman if not running the original forks, need 43mm to 53mm offset to get acceptable trail - depending on 17" vs 18" wheels).
