MY BIKES

The latest bike to my collection, an OSSA OSSITA 50.
A gift from members of the OSSAmotocycles group at Yahoo! (Thank you, Jeff Nolen)
Read about it!



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Here is a 1977 350 trial, I bought in march 2003 for my son, William. (Say it  is for the kids!)
Frame number: B580918
For sure it will keep him away from drugs and booze. (So I told my wife)
More pictures of it!

Frame number B 252 402, engine number M-252 402. Listen to my slipping clutch!!
This is my OSSA I bought it 1974 and I used it a lot during the late70´s. Even touring trips to Spain and Iceland (unfinished story)
I use it only once a year on my vacation in the deep forests of northern Sweden.
