c.1965 OSSA 160T (see text)
Frame no. B-102537
Engine no. M-203780
The motorcycle arm of Orpheo Sincronic Sociedad Anónima (OSSA) was founded by Barcelona-based industrialist, Manuel Giró. Giró's company manufactured film projectors and other related products, and part of the factory was turned over to the production of motorcycles, which commenced in 1949 with the introduction of a 125cc single-cylinder two-stroke. Some early models used four-stroke engines but by the 1960s all OSSAs were two-strokes. Designed by Giró's gifted son, Eduardo, and first seen in 1962, OSSA's 160cc single-cylinder two-stroke engine would set the pattern for the next 20-plus years. The first models with this new engine were the 160T and 160GT, which differed only in the position of the gear lever and kickstarter: left side on the former and right on the latter. A 175cc derivative followed in 1965. Believed to be a 160T, this incomplete machine is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. There are no documents with this Lot.
