I am a very happy 60 yr old!
I am also looking at a used OSSA trials bike, Please keep us up to date with your experiences.
I had seen photo's of Scott Summers holding up a light weight Honda XR600 years ago.
Umm, can I live in your garage?
Congratulations on the Ossa. hope that aint no Sherco jacket
Lol,just an old winter coat.But you got me thinking.I've been out of trials over 30 years.I think i have an old Bellstaff Trialmaster jacket in a closet maybe.Lol
Well... welcome back your off to a good start with that Ossa.
Take out "igloo" as location and at least put in a city/state near you, just so we know if we might run into you at a trails event/practice area, or what not.
That bellstaff might weigh more than the bike sweet ride
Waterloo eh ? Let me know if you want to play in the Haliburton area. I have a little chunk on trials land there in the middle of a bunch more in the area, and am about an hr away from it.
Nice bikes, garage, floor ... back.
How do you like it? I have one on the way as well!
Nice looking bike.
I didn't even realise they still made Ossa's.
It looks a darn sight lighter than my old Ossa.
Look closely at the engine on the new OSSA's, kind of suprised me when I saw one up close but I have never seen another dirt bike engine like it. They have the cylinder tilted to the rear, and the airbox and carb are in front with the exhaust coming out the back towards the swingarm pivot. I am guessing it must save some weight with 16 inches of exhaust pipe not needed, as well as moving the CG rearward a tad. Does anybody remember or know what the marketing pitch behind that engine design was??
Cannondale did it some years ago.
And so did these guys. A lot of years ago.
I have never even heard of Cannondale before either, I guess I need to get out more often :huh
Those cylinders I would call upright, not tilted rearward as the new OSSA's.
I did see a custom Triumph Bonneville where someone had reversed the jugs and had carbs with trumpets out the front and short straight pipes out the rear. I would imagine he must have had the ability to get a custom cam ground for it.
Anyway, enough thread hijacking. Have fun with your new toy Wingboy
