Show Us Your Bul!
I’ve had a love affair with Bultacos since I was about seven years old. My dad’s good friend was Charlie Hockie who owned a Bultaco dealer in So Cal with Bill Thorwaldson. I spent many Saturday afternoons roaming the shop as a kid. This is one of my prized possessions from that time:
BORT = Balls Out Race Team!
Here is Charlie when he won the #1 plate in (I think), 1959:
My first Bul was a 1969 100cc Lobito. The bike that started it all!
From the Lobito came a series of my dad's hand-me-downs starting with a '66 250 Matador:
Then came my favorite, his 1970 250 4-speed Pursang. This was my first desert H&H with DRA. Long live Ron Burpo!
Then District 37:
After high school the bikes got sold and my dad and I started riding for fun. My next Bul was bought in 2000 for vintage MX. Something that scared the crap out of me when I was young.
I raced this '77 250 Pursang for three years and had a blast.
When I look at this next Bul it takes me back to 1966 as a nine-year-old kid looking at the most beautiful bike I'd ever seen sitting in CB Motors showroom. I was lucky enough to find this restored '67 10 years ago and it's the only Bul I currently own. It runs great and gets exercised every now and then.
Alright, that's my story, what's yours?
