Lot 1835

Description:

1973 Rickman Metisse 500cc
Reg. no. TNP 771L
Frame no. Unknown
Engine no. Unknown
Over the years Rickman have produced high quality frames initially just for scrambling machines and then road racing. The frame kits were built for many engines including Triumph twins, BSA singles and Matchless. The Rickman bikes or frames were known for their beautiful fibreglass work and nickel plated frames, and are often referred to as \'Metisse\' frames, a term used for their own first effort. Although the logbook states a 750cc capacity, this machine is powered by a 500cc unit. The bike in the auction has the makings of a great example, with a modern frame and wonderful all alloy Triumph engine and Norton gearbox. The project appears to be mostly finished with much of the expensive work already carried out; it is offered with a current V5c and an older V5.
