Pawn Stars: A Very Rare Triumph Motorcycle Gets Rick Revved Up (Season 13) | History


[music playing]
EMPLOYEE: Hey, Rick? Yeah? EMPLOYEE: There’s this
motorcycle out back. You should take a look at it.
– Is it cool? Yeah, it’s really cool. OK. That’s shiny. SELLER: It’s an original
1969 G100C competition model. It’s absolutely beautiful. I love it. I wouldn’t be selling it except
my wife’s making me sell it. [laughs] This Triumph is one
of the very first dirt bikes, and most of them
were beaten to death. This bike looks like
it’s been restored right. I’ve always loved old Triumph
motorcycles, so [sighs] I’m gonna have to contain myself. [laughs] Tell me, how much
do you want for this thing? I’ve seen these go
for as much as $25,000, which is kind of where
I’d like to settle. RICK: Do you mind if I have
someone take a look at it? OK. I’m not nervous about
an expert’s opinion or anybody else’s opinion. The bike is perfect. It speaks for itself. Mercy be, that is
something special. Brings back memories, buddy– Yeah. –of the way it was. The history behind these
kind of things, Rick, is just unbelievable. I mean, Elvis Presley at one
time bought every person– his crew one of these bikes. That near-fatal crash
that Evel Knievel had jumping down there
at Caesar’s Palace was on a Triumph. RICK: Wow. Everything Triumph is
today came from these bikes right here. Very, very special. RICK: That is definitely cool. I’m Mark Yuill of
Freedom Euro Cycle, and I’m an expert in
Triumph motorcycles. RICK: So is it all original? This is a very rare bike. This is a C model T100. Those were the ones that
were the most sought after, especially now by collectors. You know, as I look
over this bike, simple little things like the
foot pegs– they are right. I look at all the switches,
the housing, the headlight. These tanks still today
are hand-pinstriped. It’s a pleasure to
look at something like that, knowing they’re
still maintaining that today. The upswept pipes on it– very, very rare piece. Very few of them left. Pretty special bike, Rick. RICK: OK. So what do you think it’s worth? Somebody that was an avid
collector of these motorcycles right here– I mean, they might pay $30,000. But realistically, it’s in
that $20,000, $25,000 range. Something like that is really
what this bike might be worth. RICK: All right. This is really cool, but– Would you like to
take it out and ride it? Yeah. That might sell you on it. [laughs] I don’t need to ride
this bike to make this deal, but I’m going to because I can. I’ll give you a
call if I buy it. Thank you, Rick. Nice meeting you, sir. Good luck. SELLER: Thank you. Finding a 1969
Triumph Trophy 500– it’s so rare. This is a motorcycle I think
that would fit in the store here, but I would like to
see Rick keep it for himself. [motorcycle revs] RICK: Here we go. Nice. Awesome. RICK (VOICEOVER): This bike
rides like a 1969 motorcycle. Actually, a little better
than most ’69 motorcycles. It handles all right. It doesn’t have a lot of power. The suspension sucks. But damn, I look good on it. [laughs] RICK (VOICEOVER): I’m
in love with this bike. I really, really hope I can
make a deal on this thing. MARK: What do you think? Pretty snappy? RICK: For a ’69 bike, yeah. It’s like a brand new bike. SELLER: It is. So I mean, what’s
your bottom line? I’m still talking $25,000. I’ll give you $14,000. No, I’m not going to
lose it for $14,000. RICK: I mean, what
is your best price? I’ll come off my $25,000– $20,000. I’ll tell you what. I’ll give you $15,000. I mean, it’s a fair price. I mean, if you put this in an
auction, you know, by the time you pay the auction
fees and everything– you know what a nightmare
the auctions can be. SELLER: $17,500. It’s a really cool bike. I– don’t get me wrong. But I think as far
as business goes, it will be hard for
me to even sell this. $15,000 is it. You drive a hard
bargain, Rick. If it wasn’t for my
wife making me sell it, I’d stick to my guns. $15,000, I’ll do it. Sweet. Let’s go do some paperwork, man. SELLER: OK. This is great. It’ll make my wife happy. Gonna settle for
$15,000 for the bike, and then I’m gonna buy
another motorcycle. I just hope my wife
doesn’t find out about it.

  1. It's a great collectors item, but if you want something to ride on a weekend for pleasure, anything like that gets old real fast. Jmo…

  2. No vaseline Rick ouch dude got to be hurtin still wont b able sit down for long time how hard he got srewd 🤣🤣

  3. Make her happy..yeah right.. FIRST thing that happened when he got home was she chewed his butt for only getting 15,000… Bets?

  4. as far as him getting screwed, sell your crap yourself and get retail….. don't sell it to a WHOLESALER and cry…..

  5. No way,the man took half,why,don't they have ebay or anything except pawn shop's in Vegas,half,loose the stinking female.

  6. Well. I. Owned a. 67 triumph bonneville 650. And. It. Was great. Rode. It. For. 3. Years now. I. Traded. My. 2006. Hd. St. Bob. For. A. 2016. Fatboy with. A. Racing. Cam. And. Exhaust. 1800 cc plus. 3300 miles. On. It. Yes. Friends. Life. Starts on a harley davidson. Me. And. My. Monster machine. Ha. Ha. Ha ha. Ha. Screaming. Eagle.

  7. I have a 500 C engine in my 57 greeves. Shed a tear when the guy sacrificed it so cheap. Rick doesn't even mention the orgasmic sound. Course mine has open pipes…

  8. Do people check their brain at the door on this show ??? The seller wasn't listening at all to the expert.

    The expert was drooling over this bike, and he wanted it badly. The expert just got through appraising it and basically telling Rick he would pay 30 grand. The seller is a fool for allowing Rick to grab this bike for less than $25,000.00. Rick would have paid it with no problem because his buyer walked out the door just before they made the deal

  9. The internet has been widely used for almost 25 years…and people still take rare and desirable items to a friggin pawnshop. Are we living in a simulation? I think we are.

  10. The owner just got taken to school by Rick 'Slime-Ball' Harrison.  Fools are soon parted with their money/possessions, and this was an excellent example.  When still being countered at $20, the guy should have just turned and ridden back home-  stopping off along the way at a good divorce attorney!

  11. I know that Jesus/God made the man and the woman to work together in the marriage. And if your wife has a better idea go along with it. But you are the man you are in charge do you have the final say so not your wife.

  12. To the wifes credit he probably couldn't ride it anymore get himself killed, Rick owes his shop to the Wives.

  13. I laugh when he said he would hope his wife would not find out about the next motorcycle he buys – I wonder how he will be able to pull that off – maybe hold up something shiny in front her as he puts the bike in the garage – when she notices it – all he says is "what"

  14. MY WIFE, MY WIFE, MY WIFE…That's all I ever hear…it's ok guys. Just say the truth!!! I'm BROKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Rick: could you wait here I have an expert on British made small motor cycle companies he will conveniently arrive in moments

  16. I couldn't even stand sitting here I'm watching someone get misled and then turning around and having a bike that my dad had yes my father is Elvis Presley my daddy came to Toronto Ontario Canada Maple Leaf Gardens in 1957 and to see you scam people and I'm half American by the way and I just don't understand how you get away with scamming people here in Canada it's against the law to scam people

  17. Riccar but one of the best scam artists I've ever seen that biking it Auction Block would pay double time in your pocket and also be able to pay off the auctioneers you're such a scam artist

  18. Rick got a deal on that one that's a whole lot of bike for 15000 poor guy I wish he was a better negotiator he should have stuck at 17500 Rick was on his game though he played that well but he wanted it that bike wasn't leaving

  19. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  20. Rick…you know you can sell the bike like in no time and make money on it…or you can keep the bike for yourself and yet you just couldn't cut the guy some slack? Geeeezzz……

  21. The moment someone states their wife or husband is making them get rid of something to Rick, that is leverage for Rick to get a lower rate from the seller.

  22. If your wife is the type to make you sell or stop the things you love she’s not worth the time keep doing what you love excluding the wife that hates all your hobbies

  23. Bro……..even if this was a tactical ploy for a sale what kind of man would say this ? Not all men can be tough but we do expect all men to be men. Grow some and live life to its fullest. Men should never wear panties

  24. I would just say 25k
    what’s your bottom line?
    Did I stutter?
    Cmon what’s the bottom line?
    Ok for you rick it’s 24,999$ and 100 pennies

  25. Well, you Dont have the Original Price tag or the wooden crate the Bike came in.
    Best I can do is $100.00 And I'm Taking a chance here

  26. My wife tried to get me to sell my 1961 Manx Norton , it's still in the garage getting old just like me.
    Sell it , NO WAY.

  27. I remember back in the early 1970's,I started racing motocross and a lot of these bike showed up with people racing them.striped down except some guys left the speed and tack o' on them,using paper plated as there number plates.they were really reliable.they had the brake one the left and gear shifter on the right,backwards to the way that bikes are made today.made in great Britain then,then the hippies took them and made choppers out of them.just like Peter Fonda rode in the movie easy rider,a British made motorcycle with a custom painted gas tank with a America flag painted on it.the it took them just a couple of days to build the bike for him,except they reversed the brake and gear shifter from brake on the right and shifter to the left.the way bike are used in modern times today,his chopper is still one of the most beautiful bikes custom made to this day.things you didn't know about the bike in the movie is that it broke down a lot while they were making the movie and it was a 650 I think,but really nice bikes back then!?
