montesa cota big hub 247

If you're into vintage dirt bike restoration check out Vazquez Racing on facebook. This Montesa Cota "big hub" 247 that they restored is just gorgeous. I believe this is one of the most beautiful motorcycles ever and just an iconic design. I believe it won some major design awards in the late 60's when it was created. I owned one of these early big hub Cotas when I was in college and ran one of the only Montesa Cota Owners website when the internet was fairly new. I restored it from pieces and then traded it for my first South Bend lathe. I'm curious if the owner still has it; I love my lathe, but I wish I still owned this beautiful bike.
