1975 Rickman 250MX
1975 RICKMAN 250MX – LAST OF THE BREED
After a brilliant career that started in 1959 with the creation of the first Rickman Metisse prototype, the Rickman’s brothers’ line of MX race bikes came to an end in 1975. Market changes certainly had something to do with it, as the Japanese were now building world-class motocross bikes, and the market was now flooded with low-cost, high-quality alternatives to the finely-crafted, but expensive Rickmans. Until now, the 250MX had always been powered by a Montessa (built in Spain) engine, but the final 22 1975 Rickman 250MXs were in fact powered by a Yamaha 250cc two-stroke single.
