Rickman Metisse Desert Racer

steve mcqueen rode one hard. he described it as one of the best things he's ever owned.
"fully reconditioned Triumph TR6 engine from the correct era, complete with a single Amal carb, and the machines are faithfully constructed to encompass the ideals employed by Steve McQueen all those years ago. So the footrests are made to his original design while the front end uses 35mm Ceriani forks, with the all-important seven-plus inches of travel to soften the effects of riding fast on rough ground. The yokes once again come from BSA to relocate the handlebar position behind the steering stem for better handling."
