It needs extensive clean-up and maintenance from 18 years of sitting. The picture makes it look better than it is. That is assuming I don't sell it first.

In my mind's eye I saw a sweet streettracker or maybe a cafe racer.

That's no rat. That's a beautiful bike, and an awesome alloy tank.

Thanks, but if ya look close at the tank you can see many dents from race'n crash's. Gotta find someone who works on alloy tanks, It is a very high quality thick walled race tank.

Unreliable, unpredictable POSs. (I keep saying to myself.) Keep 'em coming...but if someone wheels out a black shadow, i'm toast.

It ain't a Shadow, but will a Prince do? Spotted at BYOB in June.

ohhhh no-ooooo...why did i sell it?! ;-\)

i had a 1972 (or 73?) Ossa ISDT Replica. same tank as yours, but white with red. i bought it new because i was tired of coming off my Yamaha CT2 when the shocks pumped up.
the Ossa had two problems: the Spanish Amal carb not only blew gas into the [cute little] air filter, but it was way too rich or something. i spent a lot of time fiddling with the fuel/oil ratio and special spark plugs... i can't remember how i eventually fixed it. the other problem was that the shocks were way too soft, even for my 55kg. but the frame geometry was so right, the bike just tracked on straight even with the rear end bouncing around.
