Initially the frame designs were for scramblers and then for road racing. Later, in 1966, road bikes were produced as well. The first street legal bike Rickman made used a Triumph Bonneville engine. Rickman initially supplied frame kits, as none of the major British motorcycle manufacturers would sell engines to them. The frame kits were built for many engines, including Triumph twins, BSA singles and Matchless. In the mid-1960s, Rickman also produced road-racing frames for AJS 7R singles, and in the 1970s they began selling chassis kits for Japanese bikes like the Honda CB750 and Kawasaki Z1 The road bikes were the first to use disc brakes both front and rear.
Years later they made the MRD Metisee Scrambler, which had the 649cc engine making it feel pretty nippy. This specific bike is a 1992 and comes with a tuned pre-unit T110 motor, Pat French frame, AMC gearbox, Ceriani forks, Magnesium CZ wheels and has the benefit of being road registered!
