Spain's OSSA factory had a relatively brief existence, in business from 1951 to 1984, but in that time produced memorable road bikes and outstandingly successful off-road models for motocross, enduro and trials. In a bid to top rivals Bultaco and Montesa in the feet-up world of observed trials, in 1967 OSSA hired English star rider Mick Andrews, then only 23 but already a proven winner. Andrews set about developing OSSA's existing trail bike into a competitive trials mount, a process that culminated in the Mick Andrews Replica, otherwise known as the MAR, which carried its creator to consecutive European Trials Championships in 1971 and '72. Andrews also won the prestigious Scottish Six Days Trial three years on the trot in 1970, '71 and '72.

This 1972 production example, restored to museum quality with new paint and all the correct, hard-to-source parts, is a four-time concours class winner, showing 530 actual miles.
