Villiers-Starmaker/ Metisse, August 1966

The Rickman Brothers made lovely frames, with  fibreglass body parts by the Mitchenall Brothers.  Apparently, this particular machine was designed by them for Bultaco.  The frame was based on the Norton Featherbed, and front suspension could be had as modified Norton Roadholders (as above) or Italian Cerianis.

The name "Metisse", by the way, is French for "mongrel."
