Derek and Don Rickman were well-known in the 1960s and 70s for their production of off-road competition machines. Capitalising on their early success in off-road competition, they began to manufacture their own frames, and eventually produced both frame kits and complete machines, which were capable of beating the 'big boys' at their own game. As British makers went out of business, they began to experiment with smaller, more modern power plants, such as the Montesa-powered machine offered here.
The Rickman has had little use during the present ownership, and none at all for some years whilst it has been barn-stored. In need of re-commissioning or restoration, it is sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this lot.
