I had those Red/Gold Bultaco pants,I wore em for years. Had em patched and fixed from when I slid too far on my ass. They got partially ate by rats in a shed,I was so bummed.
Couple pics from racing my 72 Sherpa 200-S,and some of the 77/78 250 Pursang I just found a couple weeks ago. The Pursang is a 192 numbered model which means 1977,but the bike looks like a 78 MK11,shocks are leaned forward from factory. Id like to find a high pipe for it at some point,its a runner but I havent messed with it much yet.
Yes, I finally outgrew my original Bultaco leather MX pants. Had a new pair made a few years ago, using my originals as a pattern.
Wow, just found this thread. Great fun. Pics: my first bike a 125 pursang ... made it a 250 without telling anyone, they couldn't figure out how I was keeping up. Couldn't keep up with the new Elsinores, of course ... had a few alpinas and sherpa Ts since, last pic is of my latest junkyard build, a model 92
Oh Man I would love to have a set of those,yours came out great!
Anybody know if this is a scam? There can't be too many Metralla GTS with 360 Frontera conversions running around the USA.
It seems odd that a bike that's being advertised as being located in Denver has a San Bernardino and isn't listed on the Denver Craigslist site. I texted and haven't heard back.
I'd like to see someone try to kickstart that with about 15 degrees of effective travel of the lever!
Here's 2 friends on a couple of long gone Bultacos
I Rode both of those back in the day, i haven't been on a Bultaco in over 40 years ,but i can remember like it was yesterday how great they were on a smooth track!
Speaking of the good ole days, here are a couple pics from 1976, when I had my bicentennial beard and rode a model 143 360 Frontera. Also a pic of 2 masked men on Bultacos.
That’s your Metralla?
Yep, same bike in different clothes..
Don't leave us hanging, tell us the story!
Short version (I can add more detail later):
I've had this bike forever and have been making it progressively quicker over time. Decided to give it a run at Lake Gairdner.
The goal has always been 155mph.
First year was disastrous - hurried preparation, turned up with bike half-baked, van broke down etc. etc. Only ran 114mph for a variety of reasons, some of which I didn't fully recognize until this years meet.
This year was a good news/bad news deal. The bike only ran 128mph but the good news was that I positively identified why it didn't make the same power at speed as it does on the dyno. So overall I was very encouraged and am confident that 155mph is well within reach with a little remedial work. Plus I was better prepared this year and had an absolute ball at the lake.
