Bultaco Metralla 250

1968 Bultaco Campera 175

I years riding Bultaco and loved every one of them. in truth I loved a few of them, ok, not many of them. But, is something about Bultaco’s makes everyone who has owned love them.


I don’t know what it is makes me love these but I do. I have been stranded in the more times than I to remember by a Bultaco. I have pitched over the handlebars, into a cactus bush, and stuck axle deep in mud all on a

Notice, I didn’t say because of a Most of my misfortune has been due to error, but still, there plenty of times the bike was the And yet, Bultaco holds a place in my heart.

I have Matador’s, Pursang’s, Astro’s, Shepa’s and Metralla’s but never a I wonder why? The Campera, as I at it now, almost seems a bike for it’s time. The used essentially a Trials motor (lot’s of low end torque and power delivery) stuck an Enduro chassis (good going capabilities).

A proper Sport’. The Campera is a simple with classic European styling, and it is Moto Giro for those of you that would to ride that event…I to. The 175cc motor is a very low little powerplant and if you don’t it should just go and go.

I found a on ebay this morning needs a good home. It is a but it certainly needs some Other than cosmetics simple going through the and you would have a fun bike to just about anywhere. Is it doing a full ‘show restoration?

No. Is it worth painting the and doing some other work? Yes. Is it worth the price? Probably.

If you like and want a unique model the Spanish company, give little Campera a look.

1978 Bultaco Streaker

no secret that I have a spot in my heart for Bultaco really should be a soft in my head. I raced Bultaco’s for and for the most part, loved minute.

Well, there was one time riding a ‘family’ with the SRA when my Bultaco and I company and a woman, riding a Trail 90, that was about my age, found me lying in a plant asked me if I needed After about twenty of pulling cactus spines out of me, she off happy as a clam and I couldn’t get my to start. Good thing I got it before another Grandma by and could get it started for me….

After going to the ‘dark I had a lust for a Bultaco Metralla. I had riding the 250′s from for a while now, Matador, and Astro, but the Metralla was what I I saw the Streaker.

While gathering for a Yamaha 250 I was working on, I went the street to say hello to my old friends at Bultaco. I have to put this in because it’s too great not to. I Bultaco’s in the desert and in enduro’s for Bultaco in Van Nuys California for a of years, what I didn’t was their real company gonna love this, Maybe Manana, dba Steve’s

In the front window of the shop was beautiful black and gold repli-racer. The frame was different anything I had seen before, it had beautiful gold cast and looked like a jewel a motor. The Streaker.

The Streaker was a 10 HP motorcycle that could get you up to and carry you through most corners at that speed. It is a gorgeous motorbike. Everything the Streaker said “You me, I know you do, I may be small but I can do things Honda’s, Yamaha’s and Triumphs will love me”.

at that time in life was no way I could buy a new motorcycle, but I have that vision of the Streaker in my for decades.

I found one. On this morning I came a Streaker in really quite condition. Yes it show’s it’s age like Sophia Loren, it well. The bike is completely has only 712 miles on it and the original ( I don’t care if the owner they look fine, them…).

The owner has also a lot of information about the bike and in general, it’s a good better than that a good bike and I hope go for a reasonable price. It does a little love but not much and in the end be well worth the money.

For more of the story, pictures and click on the pics below. you can outbid me? Probably not.

’67 Bultaco

Super fun and super fast. I Bultaco’s for years…in the dirt, but I wanted a Metralla. The Metralla is the street rocket. The Metralla is a little bike.

The Bultaco as fast as the Suzuki T20 (X6 Hustler in the states) but could leave the in a cloud of blue two … on any twisty road any time.

The is light, quick and a very motorcycle. One cylinder, one carburetor, chain drive and a ton of fun to ride. I was enough to have friends at my Bultaco dealer that let me a few days with a Metralla.

It was the bike (he was on vacation) and I was threatened every … you can imagine if I did any to the little rocket. Despite all the I prodded the kick starter and with a wave and a promise I would return in a few days. I was in with the bike before I got which was only a couple of away.

Five days I delivered the Metralla back to Bultaco, washed, waxed and no for wear.I did disconnect the speedo playing with the bike and will never notice the are shot. I had so much fun on that I really believe that my on that Metralla is what my love of small bore motorcycles.

I found a really Bultaco roadracer on ebay morning based on a Metralla. I say on because Metralla’s are 250cc’s and bike is a 360? The 360 came in the El and the Frontera, not the Metralla. So, did the owner a 360?

Cool. The bike is a vintage roadracer (and actually hold its own against modern lightweight bikes) and some work, could be back to the street and would be a rocket with a giggle beyond darn near you could ride. The motor was by Kevin Murray, former 125cc Gran Prix having spent many weekends on the track with he is a great tuner and knows how to any two … fly.

So, if you’re looking for a very and unique vintage roadrace on the pics below. You won’t be

’74 Honda Four

‘The most motorcycle of all time’…I have the ‘CB350 Four’ called more than once for good reason. Honda had created the first ‘Superbike’ the CB750, then followed up with the CB500/Four for the masses, but was missing? Like what? displacement Honda motorcycles selling great all over the the CB350 Twin was the biggest motorbike in the US.

What else the Goliath of the motorcycle industry Honda loves technology, and love showing off their at it. “And now ladies and gentlemen, from the racetracks of the world, we you…”

In the mid 1970′s everything in the world was changing as fast as of us changed our Bultaco Cemoto European manufacturers were left behind as fast as the could make bait…I sushi. Yamaha, Kawasaki and were making bullet lightweight, and high giggle to ride motorcycles.

Meanwhile, Big Red was and selling motorcycles that could love as soon as sat on it.

The CB350 Four was originally to be a 250CC bike but, was to be too small for the US market, Honda’s at the time. So…punch it up a bit and at the same keep it rider friendly. the CB350 Four. What a of a motorcycle.

Small and lightweight, to look at (as in traditional styling), enough that somebody up from a CB350 twin be intimidated, it was fun to ride and, at the time feel like you sit at the grownups table with the of your riding friends at

The baby ‘Four’ was built for three years ’72-74, sales … the 350 but spawned the 400 which is a true cult Why wasn’t the 350 a cult bike? simple, at that time, wanted a plain vanilla which is exactly what the 350 was. Honda wanted to the ‘you meet the friendliest on a Honda’ campaign going, but else wanted to go fast and to with being friendly.

then, little by little…inch by little 350-4 is gaining on the

The CB350 Four was not designed and to compete with the Yamaha the Kawasaki S1, or the Suzuki GT380. The Four was silky smooth all the way to its RPM redline, reliable as your Big Ben alarm clock, easy to and……..boring as all get out. Honda in every aspect of the 350/4 in the sales department. In 1975 brought out the CB400F to replace the

It too, was a dud on the showroom floor, of. There is something about riders. If a motorcycle isn’t a kick in the pants either or sound wise…why bother?!

said, I think the CB350 is really one of the best small EVER built. Really. It is enough to be an around town it’s big enough to go across the on, your wife / daughter / son / mom ride it and be happy on.

Then and….here it comes, yet again…you make it a really cool Racer out of it.

I found this neat Euro spec Four on ebay today, it need much to get it totally worthy. Back in 1992 the gave it a nice restoration, some new OEM pipes that, are to rust out a bit on the bottom…not all that to repair though, and won’t be too There is some minor on the motor and frame but that has to be with a motorcycle of this

This is a neat little that can offer the new owner a lot of fun in a lot of The CB350/4 is a real jewel of a and here is one that you can get without ‘cult bike’ prices. on the pics for more pictures and

’67 Suzuki Cafe Racer

I love Racer’s and the people that them. This guy built T200 for his wife, but I’ll bet he it more than she does. Why do I that??…because small fast are just way too much fun to ride.

I can see it secretly builds special for his wife’s birthday, he spends big AND big money on this very birthday present. He’s how good the ‘Husband of the Year’ is going to look in the bedroom. He had the braced (for her safety), had the gone through by Scott Racing (so hubby knew the wouldn’t … somewhere on the and leave the little woman lightened it up by drilling holes all the place (wifey is a petite gal and the lighter you can make the bike the it is for her to ride…oh, and those holes cool too…), throw on a tank and seat for a very cool factor then add a few parts from a Hayabusa, an Honda, some body and you have an almost perfect Racer.

The day arrives. Hubby walks the girl out to the garage to see his wonderful to her. Up goes the garage and jaws drop. Her’s she was expecting a new car, you know, in those TV commercials…his, because still amazed at his work. “Wow honey, I love it.

I can wait to ride it”. “you know what, I to do one more jetting check on it, let me it out quickly and make sure is perfect for you”.

Six hours and a of tanks of gas later the jetting is done. So is birthday dinner. Now the is up for sale.

Ok, that was a fun little and probably not even remotely to the real story why the motorcycle is on the block. But here’s the deal, is a very cool motorcycle really well and somebody is to have a great time on it. is almost reasonable considering how work has gone into it.

on the pics for more info and the real story….

Side here, Scott Clough is one the two stoke tuners anywhere. his own racing history and those he has built for, a Scott motor is as good as you can get.

’66 Bultaco

Sometimes, some people go a bit with their restorations and I this may be one of them. This is almost too pretty to ride. On the hand…the Matador was a bike to get dirty.

Take all this work then cover it dirt, sand, mud, and you will have a proper bike. A Matador is a motorcycle you ride anywhere in the world come home and tell all the stories of adventures on your

A Bultaco motorcycle, any Bultaco, attention no matter where you go. motocross with a Pursang the early square fendered a Sunday ride on a Metralla, you’re Sammy Miller on a course riding a Sherpa, a race on an El Bandido (actually a crappy desert racer…good on a road, lousy in the sand or an enduro on your Matador, love’s Bultaco’s. If you’re one of the ones that got a black and Streaker, you have a black and mine’ in your garage.

As I written before, I started a year racing life on a ’66 so I have a soft spot in my for this motorcycle. I found one on ebay today and I started about my old Matador. My Bultaco life pretty much this one but by time I got it, a few things had changed.

It was still street stock exhaust. head and lights, speedo…but replacement fender, levers, handlebars and a bit up (my step dad wasn’t all that of an off-road rider…however,he did get better?).

I said before, some are a bit much. I like this but I have a few questions. The cylinder is the first one…not stock, and if you at it, it doesn’t even look Second, the air filter is way incorrect, I’m not about the pieces of sheet zip tied to the frame, and where is the box that is original on the right of the frame?

The engine is over and…wait, I need to stop The Matador is a great bike and owner has done some good work. If you’re for a great vintage trail/enduro that will be fun to ride and an getter, this could a happy home in your and on your favorite trail.
