My problem: I have a 1934 Morgan Three Wheeler F4 with a 100E engine and the input shaft is shagged, it lives on the end of a 4 foot tube that goes to the gearbox and as...

Club meet?

Hello all, We don't seem to have had a club meet/AGM this year, maybe because of the low numbers of active members but perhaps if some one has a suggestion of a suitable county/car show then we might be able to meet up and put something into the club and show the rest of the world that Rickmans are ...

Rancher on Ebay

A Pinto powered Rancher in fairly good nick has just sold for £3,705 on Ebay. Is this a good price? I think it could have been better for the seller if it was in the camper van section rather than just under Rickman. Still the new owner should be pleased.

Re: Anyone got the 40 yr TAX exemption yet?

All my bikes, all nine of them, are now free of MOT and "tax". And it's my birthday so I'm a happy boy!

Re: Anyone got the 40 yr TAX exemption yet?

I've also got the new MOT free 40 year ruling on a motor bike which only required form V112 when I "taxed" it. Very straight forward.

Re: Anyone got the 40 yr TAX exemption yet?

As I recall there was a form to down load from DVLA site to fill out and send that to them, I was surprised by how easy it was but I've always been a luck person! As far as dropping Road Tax any UK government is unlikely to do that as they are trapped between the two stools of loads of revenue and b...

Re: Anyone got the 40 yr TAX exemption yet?

Hello Tim, My Ranger has been tax exempt for the last few years and hopefully will be MOT exempt in May. It is regestered on it's original 1974 Escort number, I have all the supporting documents which was perfectly correct when it was done. My understanding is that if your vehicle is registered as t...
