Let me see if this link to my Bultaco photoshow will work. The music is kinda wonky, but you can turn it down.

I am about an hour south of Springfield. I wasn't at that SMOG ride. Did several in past years, but didn't make Harrisburg. My local club,the Cahokia Creek Dirt Riders hosts a 2 day AHRMA cross country national in Sept each year and this year weare adding a vintage trials on Saturday afternoon. It is the weekend of Sept 18, 19. I am in charge of the cross country event. I might see if the SMOG guys would like to have a ride on our club grounds some time.

Then there were the various desert trips.







Keep em' coming kids!
GT, those look like FUN times way back when. I have never had a Bul but I still love them. A friend of mine had a 175 and 250. He could haul ass on them. He was on the front page of my local newspaper winning the county half mile race on his 250 his last year in high school! It was one scary paper clip track!

That '74 Pursang of another inmate's? I LOVE '74 Pursangs for some reason. Those and '76 Maico MX's!

Nice slideshow and Vids Fred!

Always nice to see a few pics of Jim Pomeroy! I have a request, for anyone out there that may have
photos of Video of AMA Vintage Motorcycle days when Jim was Grand Marshall (2002?)

I would love to see anything from that year, particularly when Jim was doing the parade lap around
the Road Course, wheelying his Pursang and waving at the crowd!

Here's my early M143. I've had this bike 28 years and still can't get enough. I started racing vintage moto cross this past summer.

Nice 143 Max. Actually, it is a late 143 produced about 1976. The first model came out in 1975 and did not have the sidestand or tabs for them on the swingarm, only had a centerstand. Also the early ones had the larger tank with tool box and fiberglass fenders. I had one of each, bought the early model one in 1975 when it was new, and they are great bikes.
My 143 in my pix was a late model and I got an early model tank for it when I was restoring it. Many of the late 143's with the sidestand tab had damaged swingarms after years of idiots trying to start the bikes while standing on them with the sidestand down. That would eventually rip the metal tab out of the swingarm. I was fortunate to find a new original swingarm from a dealer in Canada when I restored my late model 143.

Fantastic!
Keep them coming!

Hopefully I'll see you guys some day at the smog ride or an ahrma cc with my 72 pursang with a high capacity desert
tank. Until then here's a descendant of a bultaco

You guys are probably already familiar with these pictures. Some of you might be IN the pic or remember the day they were taken and where.
These are from Ed Radlauer's children's books. I'm using them to educate my kids about bultacos. They are copyrighted from along time ago so I'm not sure of the rules. Moderators, please pull them down if its not allowed.

The books are kind of hard to find these days since I wore them all out when I was a kid.
