Readers Rides: Simon Jones’ Rickman Metisse

Readers Rides: Simon Jones’ Rickman Metisse

Not content with showing off just one of his bikes, last week’s Readers Rides contributor Simon Jones has sent in his Rickman Metisse BSA 441 Victor Scrambler 1967/68.

The bike has been professionally built for competition use, although Simon says it is a very cherished and appreciated machine.
