Great news: it seems the bike is delivered, so may be i will get it next week.
I added a order for a higer shield, two pieces made clutch and brake levers and a full termignoni exhaust (70 mm. diameter) :drummer: :guitarist :ahhh:
Ciao Frank, no I am not so sure but the Bultaco I was referring to...if I remeber correctly... was called "pursang"; it was a motocross machine as opposed to a trial. I was in love with all that Spanish (I think) production. I used to have a passion for motocross and I owned bikes like the Husqvarna, Aspes, KTM, DKW, Montesa and Bultaco....but that was such a long time ago that I probably am forgetting about other rides.
I'm sure it was a Pursang then Alfredo, I had two too. The first one I had was the Pursang MK 9 and I won the Spanish Junior Nationals on it, then I had an MK10, and later a Montesa Cappra VF (remember that one?). Those were the pumped forearms years when we still didn't have single rear shocks, upside down forks, water-cooling, or disc brakes and bottoming out on most jumps was the usual, with frequent trips afterwards to the dentist. The horsepower kings in our races though were the OSSA Phantoms, but their engines usually seized up at some point during the motos. Spain was building great MX, Enduro, and Trials machines during that period!
You had two Pursangs??? and you won the Spanish National!! I am impressed Frank. The OSSA; I remember that super great bike as well. I have to say that in the motocross specialty the Italians where not as good as the Spanish, the Austrian or the Germans...in fact I think we pretty much sucked at all off road specialties.
Well, actually nowadays we still are not doing anything if it wasn't for the fact that we purchased the Huskvarna from the Swedish. I guess we better stick to the street bikes!!!
Frank, a te ed a tutti gli Italiani: BUON NATALE e felice anno nuovo (dopo un bel paio di bicchieri di crema di limoncello!!!!). Ciao Ragazzi!!!! In gamba! Ci vediamo dopo il 15 di Aprile 2008. Baci ed abbracci a tutti!!! torno al mio limoncello e alla crema di fragolino!
