This week we found this awesome barn find OSSA 250 Pioneer listed on USA ebay as “unknown makes”. However on closer inspection of the listed it was clearly a rare 1972 OSSA 250 Pioneer which has obviously been off the road for a few years.
OSSA is a Spanish motorcycle brand made popular by two stroke motorcycles, primarily for off-road use. The OSSA motorcycle company was created in 1924 and ceased trading in its original form in 1982.
North America has always been a popular market for the lightweight two stroke motorcross bikes where the domestic suppliers such as Harley Davidson focused on the large capacity v-twins for highway use.
