Ossa Motorcycles - Mike Slate


In many ways, Mike Slate followed in his father’s tire tracks.

His father, Wayne, put Mike on a motorcycle at an early age, the pair riding observed trials together by the time Mike was 10. At age 12, Mike took to the woods on a 125cc Bultaco Lo Vito while his dad rode his first purpose-built trials bike, a green-and-yellow 1970 model made by Ossa, a Spanish company.
