Description

LOWERED PRICE 5 MARCH. NO FURTHER PRICE REDUCTIONS ON THIS VENUE.
Folks we have here a very rare bird indeed. This is a 1971 model (sold in 1972) A75 Rocket 3 made for the American market. (See brochure specs. shown such as higher bars, no ray-gun silencers, etc)
The original dealer repainted the frame black at the customer's request. That customer had for many years, rode very little. It would be put back right, and then some. Matching number troughout, of course.
A well know collector in the midwest bought the bike in the late 1980's and over a period of time had his full time restoration shop go over the bike cost no object. He is a collector known for his immaculate very large collection, he has a full time restoration shop for his own bikes. This was not done up by one of these shops that crank out bikes. This was beautifully done by a guy for his own world class collection by his own shop. Search for a Clymer video on you tube. Take it from there, including the May/June issue of Motorcycle Classics magazine.
I bought from that collector some years ago, and put the bike on display in my living room. At one time I had a respectable collection of triples, including British and Laverda triples, all gone now to museums and collectors around the world, except this one.
This one is the last to go. I am selling out due to early retirement, age, and some serious health issues.
I kept this one so close to my heart because it is so beautiful and rare. Take a serious look at the pictures, the bike is about as perfect as one can find. Everything is correct, the gray frame, the copper paint, the gorgeous chrome, everything.
Its been on that platform in my living room. If you expect to put this bike in service, be prepared to do all the usual commissioning efforts such as all fluids, battery, tires, etc. The engine was rebuilt top to bottom, and needs nothing. Same with hydraulics, wheels, and so on. All that said, its a museum bike. Yes, it can be ridden as new, but be realistic in expectations to put into service. The bike was running when I bought it.
Ask all questions now, no returns. The bike is even more gorgeous in person.
You will not see another bike like this, I can assure you of that. This is a truly perfectly restored example of the last model of Rocket 3.
I have a shipper nearby that I have used for years that can handle shipping this anywhere in the world.
Buyer pays a paypal deposit immediately on purchase, balance due in cash or certified funds within 3 business days. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Thank you for your interest.
