    Some people like trials for some this sport is probably too slow :evil

    Anyway very good that the bike is "saved" again.

    The dents and marks are "commen" on such an old bike as these bikes have frequently bite into stone.

    Thank you for the update.

    thanks for the comments. it's a fun bike but i'd rather it go to someone that will bang it on rocks :D versus letting it sit in my garage and get ridden maybe 2x a year.

    I sold it to a guy from Alabama. Did you buy it from him?
    I hope you're enjoying it.

    got it in Lynchburg Tn. It was a buddy of Curt Comers.

    Still sorting it out, hard start issue, carb seems fat on the bottom end, needs tires........

    A buddy of Curt's bought it from me.

    I didn't have a hard time starting it but I felt like I had to clean the carb every time I ran it at all. Have fun with it. I hope to have another old bultaco someday.

    Cleaned the carb, new points, runs much better now!
    seems to loose spark after about 15min? I need to move the condenser, and /or a new coil?

    looking for a new brake and shift pedal...Have magura bar levers on the way,
    added one "turn" of preload to the shocks so it turns better now.
