The OSSA Mick Andrews Replica, better known as MAR or M.A.R. (and often referred to simply as “Mick Andrews”), it was a trial motorcycle model manufactured by OSSA between 1972 and 1977. Throughout its commercial life, four versions were produced, all with the following general characteristics: and separate filter caps in white with green stripes, two-stroke air-cooled single-cylinder engine (initially 244 cc and then 310 cc), double cradle frame, drum brakes and conventional fork shock absorbers front and telescopic rear .
The MAR owes its name to Mick Andrews, the best trial driver of the time and one of the most remembered in the history of this sport, as it was an exact replica of the prototype that English had been developing since of 1967 in close collaboration with the engineer Eduard Giró (a prototype with which Andrews had won until 1971 two editions of the Six Days of Scotland Trial and a European Championship). In 1972, already piloting a MAR like the one in the shops, Andrews repeated victory in Scotland and the European Championship. At the end of the season, however, he accepted a million-dollar offer from Yamaha and left OSSA, leaving behind a long period during which he contributed greatly to increasing the popularity of the Spanish brand in Europe

Yesterday we enjoyed a nice visit with Emily Roberts of Motorcycle Mojo - she was in town picking up her KTM after getting some work done on it. - Emily always has a ton of stories to tell and is  a pleasure to have stop by - after a cup of tea - we showed her the latest bikes in the shop and talked Trials for a bit, before she headed back to Revvy - Today she flies down East for a three week stay with her Mum & Dad, who run the Magazine . - Watch out for more news on “Super Gal” in the coming weeks.
Here is nice pic of Emily when she was in town picking up a BMW to test for the Motorcycle Mojo Mag:
