Re: warning - Even less of a Bultaco story

Hi Everyone, That old vise looks fantastic Greg. I am wondering if you will be using it day-to-day or is it for special occasions/admiration/display? Maybe it's a resto for a customer? I couldn't help thinking about the practicalities of the design and suspect that it is actually a better thing in s...

Re: warning - Not so much a Bultaco story

Hi Everyone, I was expecting there to be some corrosion to clean up after all it has been sitting around in that plastic bag for about 49 years, but it looks perfect. It's fairly amazing to still be able to buy new parts for a bike whose manufacturer went out of business 40 years ago. David, Good qu...

Re: Basket Cases

Hi Everyone, Hi Rusty. Acetone and brake fluid mixture. whitehillbilly Shane, is that 50/50? Or just soak it in some diesel fuel. Graham, this is getting expensive.... Provided there is no grease or oil residue on the thread, you could submerge the whole thing in molasses which will not only free up...

Re: Basket Cases

Hi Everyone, Hi Everyone, You are on to it David, 28 spoke holes is what I got when I first laid eyes on that hub of yours. My first thoughts were :Bultaco: Tiron but the hubs are different and looks like many more spokes to me? While we are going, I think this is outside Post Classic Era but has 28...

Re: Basket Cases

Hi Everyone, So I decided to have a closer look at the all-aluminium :Bultaco: rear hub I posted up a photo of a couple of days ago. When I lifted it up for a better look I found another all-aluminium :Bultaco: rear hub hiding underneath. I then realised that they are quite different and this might ...

Ye Olde Bultaco wheels

Hi Everyone, Greg there were quite a few different :Bultaco: rear hubs in the late 60s to mid 1970s. I went looking and found one of those "all aluminium" hubs you had spoken about but it came without a motorbike attached so I don't know what it is from. Looks nice though. Here is the &quo...

Hi Mate,

Just my opinion and you do what you want but I suggest you get the shock delivered to you and have it in your hot little hands BEFORE you hand over any money.

Look at his location and check out the Trials scene there.........
