 Ossa offered a few {I think around 200} different models with the adjustable lever forward mounted shock suspension, called the Bolger Long Travel.
Comment from Heise about the Bolger:
 To answer your 
questions on bolger production i believe there were about a 100 bikes 
produced/converted  total. 50 of the bikes were BLT trials bikes, the rest 
of the production was split up Mountaneers, Phantoms,  Desert Phantoms and 
1 Phantom Enduro. These bikes were built from 74-76 all were assembled in 
Scenectady, NY. Ive owned 6 of these bikes and regret selling all but BLT. I 
have the remains of the bolger sheet metal inventory to produce bolger bikes.
    My story and numbers come 
from what i consider a good source if anyone out there has more or different 
info id love to hear it. One of the things that makes Ossa so interesting is 
learning something new everyday.
