2015 - the Ossa racing department
- and the actual day the door shut
Now , back into the main room , we look up towards the workshop
On the right is one of 15 magnesium framed factory Ossa's. On the left is the 2016 Ossa prototype. Retrotrials.com has taken to decision to show these photos , because its highly unlikely that the company is going to produce a 2016 bike , so it was pretty simply really.
Dont lean back Paco :).
Whilst the magnesium framed bikes are very special , i am told that if you are a top rider they are not the bike for you....because you could well ,snap or crack the frame.
This magnesium swinging arm was unbelievably light.
It is beautuful . Of that there is no doubt.
The competition Ossa's in the World Trial has to be loaded with lead to make them heavy enough to meet the 65kg minimum weight level.
We had the chance to buy this .....but my friend turned it down. Now he cant sleep ....because he regrets the decision so much.
