    Looking for a complete, running (easy starting?) Sherpa T in the Longmont CO area. Any leads? Any for sale by inmates? Willing to pay premium price for premium bike. Email me at landeira@colorado.edu. Thanks for your help

    Found a nice original 1972 250 Sherpa T twenty miles from my house yesterday. Bought it on the spot. Will spend the weekend cleaning and checking it out. Word certainly gets around fast at Adventure Rider.
    thx

    Hey Mr. Ziglar-I was looking for you at the ISDT-RR. You would have classed up the joint with your Frontera. In the entire field of competitors (and DS riders) there were only 3 Bultacos; 2 M26 matadors and an Alpina that DNS.

    Good luck this weekend!

    Hi all, hopefully here's a pic of my Sherpa 92 I recently restored, not for competition just to ride around the yard (livery yard and surrounding farmland) also a chance for my son to ride a bike ...so enjoyed restoring this one... I bought another... Sherpa 80, nearly finished that ....so just got a Frontera 152, originally from Colorado apparently, under the sun bleached, brittle baked tank and sun destroyed seat and Preston Pettys are cupfuls of desert sand... quite cool. Will show pics when I get onto the pc. Started this on my phone and now can't work out how to put pics in!

    Aah - my first post so not allowed to post pictures yet.

    Awfully quite in this thread.
    I picked up a second Bultaco last weekend, a Frontera M180 to keep my wife's Alpina M166 company on the forest roads. Street plated and all.

    Really happy with it thus far.

    PS the guy I got it from still has an Alpina listed in the fleamarket. His bikes are in great shape and he is super easy to work with. Link to the Alpina http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=985725

    Very impressive. Who did the tank and tins? They look amazing.

    I know wvweypne has its one tastw and the rebuiöd is great but so is the originl bike.

    IF you had just done the technical things and repairs that were needed to get the bike running as it should. Then contemporary fenders, remount missing rubber, ... leaving the patina the bike would look even better on my personal eyes.

    I have too rebuild two bikes on every aspect but now I leave the patina were I can. too nice to be blasted away.

    The tank and side panels came from Tony Holt www.holtworks.co.uk His quality is second to none. The fenders are stock/repro Matador. I made the rest, front#plate, frame guards, air box, etc.

    Everyone has their own views. Yeah patina is nice, but it comes from original shiny stuff. This bike will only get better with age as it garners its own patina. The quality and craftsmanship will still show through the wear and tear.
