Can't have Schrauber and Stainless do all the heavy lifting around here....

If you haven't already found it, here is a site that should help as well:

http://www.airtech-streamlining.com/vintage/bultacotss.htm

Not sure if they're still producing - I have always been afraid to call, fearing a sudden drainage of the bank account.

Good luck

Thank's jcf, very cool, as I'am sadly really in the dark to the Metrella bikes and street bikes in general, here sometinh very interesting and new too me too.

The porting advices are much different to them I know for the trials bikes that have these vertical deep "grooves" inside the sleeve and additional holes in the cylinder, but I believe this modification work only good for "slow" going engines like the Sherpa.

Interesting are the brake plates with additional breather for better cooling, very useful for a streets bike I think.

So I have a guy with 2 Bultaco Bandito (bandido in spain) that he's owned since new, 1971.
What kind of info can ya'll give me on that engine, were I to pursue it?
Looks like they were bumped to 350cc and 43.5HP...which seems like gobs.
Would this still be ideal for a street racing bike?

One bike is in parts, one has been parked for over 30 years. He wants 2k for the bunch. I only want the engine, or the cheaper of the 2 bikes.

The Bandito models where expecially made for the U.S. market and where only sold in tiny small numbers in Europe. Here an article about the Bandito: http://motocrossactionmag.com/Main/N...DIDO-4449.aspx

The motor should have two plugs, The first production runs year 1967 where not completly developed, or should I say they where the first big bikes Bultaco made. Highest outpot in power should have the 68 model. In 1969 the power got down again, even the stroke volume. Last model was build in 72 called MK2 with only 32,5 HP.

If you ask me sounds good, but already mentioned very rare in Europe, I haven't seen one here so far.

Center port cylinder? I think they had a double down tube frame?

bandito motor is different from all others. no interchange. tough to find parts for i would think. but it had right kick, and 10 more hp...i don't know if they were primary kick though..

Depending the spare parts at least here in Europe the situation is much better for later bikes then for the old once,
you get a lot of replika parts too, but they are often not in the best quality, I try to avoid them, beside rubber parts.

Anyway I guess that searching up flea-bay even the good shops in Spain for spare parts to these Bandito models will not be very successfull.
