1969 OSSA 230 Pioneer

oss_pio_69_230_msI bought the rolling chassis for this Pioneer at Mid-Ohio from Roger.  Karl had the 4-speed engine and a bare frame (matching numbers!) and a nice tank!  Snoop supplied the other fiberglass.  My upholstery guy matched the seat cover – the 69 has a different pattern than the later models.  Dean DiCarlo recently came across a headlamp with speedo – which finishes the hunt for the major parts.  I’m getting ready to start the restoration on Bill Burton’s 69 Pioneer – I think I’ll do mine at the same time!  I like the features of this year – different paint scheme, trials handlebars, “cast” footpegs, exhaust on left side, Telesco suspension, low front fender and “vintage” speedo/large headlamp combination!
