More information on Bultaco Models


Hi, I bought a Metralla. The title says it is a 1965. I’ve never seen handlebars like this before. It has a DOT taillight that looks like a trailer light. The front fender is shorter and the racing number plate on the front fender runs to the end of fender. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Just read the article about motoplatt flywheel mag, thanks. My stator has a diode but I don't have a blue wire but I do have a grey one which I have been unable to identify it’s use . Could that be a capacitor charge wire , if it is , how would it be wired in?

Bultaco Pursang 250/360
Dear Sir,

I was given a Bultaco in lieu of work done and I don't know much about it. I was told it is a Pursang, it's old but I don't know how big the engine is or when it was made. I don't even know if it works. The motor looks visually larger than the 250 motors I've seen on the internet but I'm not sure. The motor has a # M-10500054 on the crank case. I will send several pics along with this email and if you could be so kind as to speculate what size and model the motor is and what year it was made, I'd really appreciate it!
What can I use to remove the oxide on the head, cylinder and other aluminum parts?
If I take the head off, will I need to replace the gasket before I reassemble it?
What kind of paint can I use to repaint the exhaust pipe?
What do you think a fair price for an AS IS bike like this?
I'd really appreciate any info you might have. Thank you so much

Hello Bultaco owners! In the late 70's I was seriously into trials in southern Arizona. I have two complete Sherpa T350's and an Alpina 250 that haven't run in years, but were running when I garaged them. How can I determine the value of these bikes if I want to sell them now?

Bultaco TSS road racers My family owned and raced several TSS models during the sixties and seventies. We had a pair of 1965 aircooled 250s, a 1966 125 w/c 125, and a pair of `966 w/c 250s (one bored out to 252 for the 350 class).

We finished off the 60s with a superb gear-drive 250 and a magnificent a/c 350 (with 360 sleeve and piston) . Our number one rider, South Africa's Martin Watson set lap records on all the British short circuits, as well as picking up the Newcomer's trophy in the 1966 Manx GP . The 125 never placed outside the first six.

The 350 was vastly undeveloped but picked up a host of club wins everywhere.

They were truly fabulous bikes and very reliable. If only they had produced the 250 twin which Barry Sheene told me he had seen at the factory in 1971. Apparently senora Bulto vetoed the project because she didn't want her son, Ignacio, going road racing.

A great marque made by a great family and achieving some great results.
