Description

Montesa was formed in 1944 by Pedro Permanyer and “Paco” Bultó who teamed-up in Barcelona to create their own lightweight motorcycle – a 95cc 2-stroke prototype based on the French Motobécane models of the time. Bulto left Montesa in 1958 to form the rival Bultaco, but, buoyed by an improving Spanish economy, Permanyer soldiered on and continued to produce new and successful road models which also achieved significant success in competition.

The first Montesa trials bikes appeared in 1967, and the following year a Montesa Cota won the Spanish Trials Championship. The company became ever more successful during the 1970s, and in addition to the many motocross, enduro and street models was a strong range of trials bikes ranging from a tiny 25cc to 349cc.

The unrestored Cota 50 trials offered here is in very good original condition throughout. With the current owner for the past 15 years, it has been unused during that time, and a prettier little beginner’s trials machine with a fine pedigree would be hard to find.
