I picked this up last week for a very good price. It needs a front brake cable and a little bit of tuning and its ready to ride.

Actually...the Plonker model came before the MAR !
The latter was a much improved design.

Now cut that out! Those dark green early Plonkers are just too sexy!

And I think Ossa continued to use the Plonker name even after introducing the Mick Andrews Replica version - somewhere in my stash of useless stuff I have some old Ossa brochures that still use the term. I owned 14 Ossas at one time before reality reared its ugly head and still have my 72 Pioneer 5-speed that I bought new. The MAR is the one I shoulda never turned loose of. I sold it to a friend of mine for $700 back in 1993 and he recently sold it for $2700 on Ebay. It was in mint condition and I even offered to give him double what he'd paid for it a few years ago to get it back,

Thumb Hey! When did this forum start?



My TL125 in its natural environment.

Here it is being test ridden by CookieMonster.



I know. It's been posted before but watching him sink out of sight in his first 30 feet still makes me laugh.

Gary LaPlant's bike, not mine. I had a good time with this one though, near Temecula on Saturday.

Ha, Yes.
I also have a big bore thumper.
For riding right out of the garage it's way overkill and unmanageable on several of our trails (we live at the base of a ski area). I originally picked up the 4RT as a way to be able to ride these trails, not so much because I wanted to ride trials. Now I'm finding that my interest is growing, however my skills are....
Not so much. Working on it though. The video's make it look so easy, I'm finding for me it's really not. Still working on it though.
