Rickman Metisse replica plastic?

Has anyone else seen the retro Rickman Metisse bike that uses a new Triumph motor? Can't remember where I saw it, but it does exist, at least on the net. I wonder if it's possible to buy replica panels/tank/fenders similar to, or a copy of the old Rickman? I have an old Kawi KDX 250 that I'm thinking of stuffing an older air cooled motor in. Hanging Metisse plastic on it would be icing on the cake. I know it wouldn't mount properly but I could make the panels work I think.

You might also want to check in with Rickman themselves.

They sell quite a few kits that fit different engines, plus individual components.

FWIW as the owner of some rickman pieces that might someday resemble a motorcycle......

ALL, not some, not most, but ALL rickman stuff is proprietary to Rickman bikes. The rickman brothers made their own frames and the bodywork for those frames, and it is very difficult to get it to work on other motorcycles. just wanted to give you that caveat before you spent a lot of money on bodywork that will take a butload of work to get to fit to something else.

that being said:
