So I see!

Birkett = Ossa Moto UK

That's the original name used first by Peter Fletcher, then Cliff & Roger Holden back in the days of Mick Andrews.

A rather younger Mr Birkett has ridden an Ossa before in the early 70's

Big John may be able to confirm the year as I think he rode it in the SSDT

Hmmm! sure he would like to, but I am sure Ossa would put pressure on him to off load the Scorpa Importership to cocerntarte on pushing the Ossa?

Rathmels went from Aprilia > Scorpa > Sherco if it was viable then surely they would have kept the last two.

Birks has asked me to point out a very rare Big John error (and only because he normally gets it right!)

The new company is called OSSA Motos UK Ltd

the old company was called

OSSA Moto.

Don't shoot the messenger! :barf:

From memory I think he had his brief stint with Kawasaki before joining Suzuki.

Correct, and I realise we're talking SSDT here. Just pointing out that the move to Suzuki wasn't directly from Ossa.

Cheers.
