After the death of Floyd Clymer in 1970 the Rickman Brothers acquired the rest of the Enfield Engines. The engines were in possession of Mitchell's in Birmingham waiting to be sent to Italy to be assembled. Mitchell's were an import/export company and wanted to dispose of the engines as soon as possible. They approached the Rickman Brothers for a frame and the Rickman Metisse was born.

There were however, only 137 Rickman's originally made. There were six or seven prototypes also made (R651, 797, 810, 811, 979) Production went from April 1970 until January 1972.
