A rare pic of a Rickman Metisse Suzuki 500 raced by Floyd Emde…

From the April ’68 issue of Cycle World on pages 66 and 67 comes an article titled “Daytona:The Men and Machines for 1968″…..with a quick mention as follows…..

“Floyd Emde has entered his 500-cc Suzuki-Metisse, which rider Johnny Apple took to second place in its race debut at Carlsbad, Calif. The machine uses Suzuki’s two-stroke twin-cylinder engine in one of the Rickman brothers’ Metisse frames, complete with fiberglass tank and seat.”
