Lot 426: 1975 Ossa 250cc

Collectors' Motorcycles, Bonhams (16 October 2005)

Founded in 1951, Spanish firm Ossa first achieved worldwide recognition when works rider Santiago Herrero came close to winning the 250cc World Championship in 1969. However, the off-road market was by far the more important for Ossa, as it was for rivals Bultaco and Montesa, and it is for its achievements in trials and moto-cross that the marque is best remembered. This Ossa roadster was first registered in Nottinghamshire in 1975 and bears a tax disc dated February 1978, presumably the last occasion it was licensed for the road. The machine is offered for restoration and comes with Swansea V5 stating it to be “Rebuilt – assembled from parts.”
