The old OSSA motorcycles, a Spanish off-road motorcycle that made and sold motorcycles between 1924 and 1982 (when it went belly up), has risen from its ashes. Like any brand that has stopped, investors eventually pump in money, and they start again. You just have to look at the news over the last few years; Indian, Norton, MZ and I'm sure we'll shortly see Buell back.
OSSA (which stands for Orpheo Sincronic Sociedad Anónima), known for its reliability and power, created quite a niche in North America. With the Englishman Mick Andrews they conquered the European Trials Championship twice in a row. Not only did OSSA make trial and other off-road bikes, but also road touring motorcycles.
This was one of the last OSSA motorcycles produced, the OSSA 303.
This one, also from their last year, is the URBE 250 (yes, a 250 cc touring bike).
Today, it would seem that they're back. At Eicma next month they are launching their new trial motorcycle, the TRI 280.
They also have a website, and it's not bad at all. Have a look (though it's currently only in Spanish), it's nicely done and entertaining.
