Thanks for the info guys! Keep it coming ;)
The plan thus far:
Pull the engine, order a rebuild kit and a control/cable kit from Hugh. Rebuild the engine within the next month. Clean up some of the casting as best I can and just ride it all summer. In the winter I'll actually take it down to the frame and start restoring and getting things painted.
I'd like to in house all the work I can so I may need to find me a soda blaster :)

I was born in 1953 and in high school bought a new 125 Bultaco Lobito street legal bike. My best frined, just passed away last summer, had a beautiful Matador just like the photo above thie message. It was a fine runner and quite fast. Also totally street legal. I'd love to have either a Matador or a Metralla.

Why hate? You can still buy them... Lineman boots, I paid $16 for mine. I had a pair of them, my brother still has them. The extra leather on the toe was for wear when climbing poles with the spikes on. That was what was worn in the 60s-early 70s before the actual MX boots migrated from Europe to the U.S,

Now that part is worth hating. That stuff is probably ebay gold.

Just goes to show how the Metralla was more of a cheap (yes, they were cheap) pedestrian transportation for the Spanish public. The trick with Metrallas was to put on Pursang and eventually Astro cylinders and such. Then they had some serious horsepower.

Just ordered an engine rebuild kit and control cables from Hugh's Bultaco. Hopefully this enough to get to a point where I can crank it back up and ride a bit this summer.
Can anyone list the tools I will need (outside of the standards) to tear the engine apart? As far as I know, a clutch holder, bearing puller, something to hold the magneto etc
Any specialty tools and what not I should make or buy?
Thanks guys!

If you're splitting cases, you'll need to make or buy a case splitter. Also, have you seen Tenorjazz resto thread??? Sorry if this is 205'd, Blaine:

I've been following that thread. Inspiration!
The carbs are actually new. Somewhere a long the line post 77 he upgraded to a 30mm new Amal that never got used. Still original, just bigger and more beautiful :)
Soooo Jenna...now that you have all this amazing 2 stroke experience, would you maybe be interested in assisting with the rebuild of the motor after I pull it? The last 2 stroke I rebuilt was my 63 Vespa and I didn't split the cases really :(

Why, you want to do it twice? Sucks you don't have a garage anymore. If you want to tear into this thing might be worth your while to have it under cover. If I can help I'd love to !

My aperture was way to high for the light I was shooting in so it ruined everything. *sigh
