A two wheels 2002? Yes! It did exist!

Recommended Posts


This is for those of you that also love 2 wheels jewels. There is a small and beautiful museum of classic motorbikes in Spain called Museu Moto Bassella. It is located in the middle of nowhere just in a service area of a small road. You can hardly find it in a tourist guide. But believe me if I say it is one of the best museums I have ever visited.

There is a 2002 machine in the museum, but as you can now expect it is not a BMW. In fact it is neither a car, it is a motorbike. It is a Derbi 2002. In the 70s our market had a powerful motorbike industry and brands like Bultaco, Montesa, Ossa and Derbi were worldwide known for their good off-road products. However those brands also offered road motorbikes, mainly for the very much protected Spanish market. In the 70s Derbi put in the market a two strokes/two cylinders (that could be the reason of its name: 2002) bike that was the top reference in our market.

Today all those brands are part of the history but you can still enjoy a good view of them in this nice museum. I hope not to have disturbed you with this off topic that brings me back to the age when I was a teenager.
