1982 Ossa TE250

Vendor supplied images


  • Previously restored paintwork and seat upholstery
  • Running and riding well according to the vendor
  • Road registered - although the ITV expired two years ago

The Appeal

While Ossa is a lesser seen name in the world of motorcycles, they were revered in period for their capable two-stroke machines, finding success in trials, enduro and motocross in their native Spain and abroad. This 1982 TE250 originates from towards the end of the company’s history. It’s a fun, compact 250 cc bike with great lines and a highly regarded engine. 

If you’re looking for an unusual and usable classic motorbike, this makes a lot of sense. With previously restored paintwork and seat upholstery, it’s a very presentable example and the vendor informs us that it runs and rides really well. While its ITV expired two years ago, the bike is road registered in Spain and is complete with its related documentation. We're sure it will be out on the road in no time at all, so don’t hesitate in making this curious Ossa your next acquisition.

  • Single Veglia instrument for the speedometer and odometer
  • There’s not too much wear to the pegs, grips or controls

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
