1973 Rickman 250MX Background

This 1973 Rickman 250MX is the product of years of development. Brothers Don and Derek Rickman were successful motocross racers in the 1950s in England and Europe. They began building racing frames in 1959, and created a line of frames that were designed to accept almost any engine on the market. This was the Rickman Metisse. But Rickman really wanted to build their own complete bikes, albeit with someone else's engines. None of the British motorcycle companies were willing to sell them any engines for fear that they would create competition for their own bikes. But by 1971, Rickman had secured contracts to purchase lightweight 2-storke engines from Hodaka in Japan (100cc engines), Zundapp n Germany (125cc engines), and Montessa from Spain (250cc) engines. They created a very capable, and beautiful line of motocross bikes that ran through 1975. In their day, Rickmans were considered by many to be the world's finest motorcrossers. The 250MX had the Montessa 250 engine, and they were fast in their day.
