    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. IMG_3410.JPG IMG_3393.JPG IMG_8056.JPG IMG_8058.JPG

    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 Untitled-5.jpg IMG_5921.JPG

    I'd like to see someone try to kickstart that with about 15 degrees of effective travel of the lever!

    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. Bultaco236.jpg bikes378.jpg

    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.
