Hmmm.... All the Bul riders must be out fixing their bikes. :wink:

This started out as an Elsinore site, but I expanded it to all other types of bikes, but the word is just starting to get around. In time more Euro bike people will join. Thanks for your interest and I hope someone steps up soon.

Cheers,

Nathan

I have a 350 Sherpa T project bike, it's rideable, but far fom complete. ..Back in the day I had 2 250 matadors and a 250 Alpina, along with several trade ins I rode before reselling them. I sold CZ's , Ossa's, and Canned Hams........but the CZ's and the Buls were my favorites! Lots of Bul sites on the web, but not much forum chatter anywhere except in select forums that I also got tired of waiting for replys to posts. Since I have a small stable of Euro vintage stuff I find this forum well worth the wait for replys.

I no longer own my bultaco but here's a few of the only pics I have. it's a 1972 Pursang with the dual spark plug ignition. it sounded awesome but sadly when the previous owner installed new main bearings he forgot to remove the inner covers from the bearings so they never received any lubrication, so it never ran that long.

Hi Ray, you have very good taste for motorcycles. I respectfully correct you in that Bultaco's were built in Spain. I have owned and studied this brand for 37 years and might be able to answer you're questions regarding toe Alpina.

Ray, if you are still out there and still have the Bultaco, check out Hugh's Bultaco on the internet. He has lots of parts and rebuilds motors, etc.
