Talking Found this montesa

I took a short ride today up Hwy 9 and seen this 250 Montesa. It is about 6 miles north of Sedro Woolley, Wa. Seems to be all there.




It is a 72 and the guys father had it in storage. He only seen him ride it once. He is asking $1100.00

Give him[Jordy] a call 360-305-9992

Nice Montesa. Good condition, Skid plate area looks to be in good shape and not too bashed up. Lots of good original parts. Fenders, and chain guard are nice. A big tank/small hub bike isa 1971. It looks to have a Mikuni carb. Also looks like a mix of different year parts. The fenders are 1969/1970 but triple clamps and forks are from a 1974. The clutch cover is off a later model (1974) I would check to see that frame and motor numbers match. For more info on the exact year check the frame number here http://montesaweb.com/secciones/evolucion.aspx?id=c247

I agree about checking to see if the numbers on the engine and frame match. i have a 74 and a 72 and the 72 shifts on the right and brakes on the left. I believe that they changed the shifting mid 72 or early 73 however so it could be correct. Looks like a pretty good prospect as they are easy to work on and fun to ride. I would ask at least that much for my 72 which runs real well. That one has the earlier fatter tank/seat .
Let us know what happens.....

Okay, okay, I didn't want to have to do this. I will fly out and ride it back home to NY, just need a cup holder. Please provide the gps coordinates and I will be right out....

All kidding aside, nices pics of a great old classic trials machine. The ONLY pic that I was looking to see though, was the one of the Montesa loaded into the back of your truck, or Yugo, or maybe strapped across the bags of your Beemer...however it is you people roll out there.

The seller must be asking one million dollars for it, right?

I`m with LOWPSI. It`s a `74 with the old tank etc. Just checked Shipmans `Observed Trials Just For Fun`. My `71, My Dad`s 72 and a friends `73 were all left sided brakes. Still nice after all these years if it RUNS!

I may be wrong about this bike. It may be more original than I first thought. With a 3000 VIN number it makes it a 1971. The black and grey powder coated hubs threw me off. Looking at production info it looks like there were only 125 units built with the newer forks and powder coated hubs. The left side shift came later but it was a mod that could be done. Just goes to show I ain't as smart as I think I am.


It looks like the indentations in the tank for the tank badges have been filled in. It's still a sweet bike.

So the 125 units came with the shorter intake like the later models? Interesting model , but the spanish are still that way today!
