OSSA Canada

Many years ago I bought an OSSA 175 Sport from a gentleman in Kingston, Ontario. He told me that in 1966 he had become the official Canadian OSSA importer by bringing in a grand total of twelve bikes. After he impressed the locals by winning an impromptu drag race against a Suzuki X6, Art Berry, the local Honda and Suzuki dealer on Princess St picked them up. No word on how they sold.

As far as I know this is the only one left of that shipment. And yes, we've clocked it at 92 mph!
