    Ossa Pioneer

    One of the things I like about being a failed writer is that there's no pressure. Here's another memory lane deal on the Ossa Pioneer.

    There was a pretty blue Stilleto that came with an aluminum swingarm, testers at the time thought aluminum shouldn't be used in such a critical area.

    Back in the day, I ran with some guys, and they all rode either Montessa, Greeves, Bultaco, CZ, Maico, Husqvarna, Ossa, Zundapp, DKW, or Sachs. Oh yeah, and a Rickman thrown in here and there.

    Back in the day, the above bikes were pretty bad ass.

    Ossa and Bultaco's were great bikes in the 70's. Here in the Netherlands we didn't see them often, though they were sold here too.
    But I still remember the holiday's we had in the 70's, my parents had a campervan and every year we went to Spain for a few weeks.
    They were plentiful there! I still have lots of old pictures of them, already I was infected with the motorcycle-virus and my dad liked taking lots of pictures for me. (I was very young then)
    You could even see 50's Moto-Guzzi's there still being in use in those day's! I alway's remember seeing a 60cc two-stroke Guzzi parked on the boulevard there, it was property of one of the waiters
    working in our favorite restaurant. He used it everyday, to get to work. And allowed me to sit on it, it was great, still in the original paint, faded, but it had a certain charm which I fell for.
    They call it patina here. It even had monoshock rear suspension as standard. With friction damping offcourse.
    Those were the day's!

    I enjoyed your writing.

    You're among friends who can relate to your words here.

    In nearby Auburn, CA. they run speedway races every Friday during the summer months. Mostly Jawa 500 singles running methanol and no brakes.
    Wish you were here to write about them.

    If you like Ossas goggle Jim Hollerick mueseum in Cheshire MA. he has probably one of the biggest Ossa collections in the country, several from the 73 six days team. Amazing collection of bikes he restored.
