Interestingly, the original Ossa company got its start in manufacturing movie projectors, and the company’s four-leaf clover emblem is actually an escapement mechanism of a film projector. Also, Giró’s sidecar passenger was Francisco Bultó, founder of Bultaco Motorcycles.
The company hit its stride in the 1960s with exporting success, particularly to the US where off-road motorcycling pursuits were fast becoming all the rage.
The rare Euro-model 1975 Osaa 350cc Enduro offered here is in excellent, restored to factory spec condition. The engine rebuild was performed by Keith Lynas and hangs in a powder-coated frame with original glass, repainted. The wheels were rebuilt at Buchanans and the chrome parts were replated. The bike is unused since and was placed on static display in a private collection for past several years. As such, the bike will need re-commissioning before returning to off-road use.
The 350 Enduro was borne from the 250cc Six-Days Replica of 1973, a rarity and must-have for any discerning collector.
