Sunday, September 8, 2019

The Motorcycle Committee of the Radnor Hunt Concours d’Elegance selected the featured class for 2019 as Rickman Motorcycles.

Don and Derek Rickman built bikes from 1960-1975. They built complete motorcycles less engines, so the variety of machines is quite diverse.  Steve McQueen used a Rickman Metisse chassis with Triumph power to great effect. Both the off-road and street bikes were striking in appearance Don & Derek were inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame in 2007.
