Reviving a Bultaco

i picked up a 1979 sherpa t 350 from a local rider and fellow adv guy. it had been sitting around his place and wasn't doing him any good, so i thought it would be a good candidate to distract me over the winter. i know nothing of trials bikes or bultacos so i'm sure this will be interesting.

here's an old pic from the PO:

and a pic as she sat last night:

i finally got the giant nut off that has to be removed before you can insert the flywheel puller. it was stuck in a grand way.

last night i was able to clean up the points and get a clean spark. now i need to tear into the mikuni and clean it up. i have good spark but a good round of kicking with the choke engaged leaves me with an overflowing carb and a dry sparkplug.

here's the goody shelf. the tank looks great except where the petcock mounts. i have some ideas for replacement tanks, but i may try and salvage this one first.
