  1. Bultaco 199a Drawings.

    I have yet to come across any pdf of199A drawings on the interweb. I have used a 199 spare parts catalogue which I purchased from InMotion and have found it very useful.
  2. Bultaco model 212 piston

    Not really grasping what you are asking.
  3. What Did You Do To Your Bultaco Today?

    The 199 was the last model Sherpa to sport a fibre glass tank. This changed to plastic mid production run with all subsequent models (199A & 199B) having the plastic tanks and Alloy exclusively for the UK.
  4. Sherpa 199a tank change

    The 159 or 191 tanks were fibreglass (outside the UK) as standard, so that presents it own problem with modern petrol.
  5. Pursang 370 stancions

    Hi Paddy, E&G Manley Engineering http://manlyengineering.ie/ in Ashbourne, Co. Meath that will more than likely be able to re chrome the forks for you. They are motorcyclists themselves and do very good work. The Matadore won't do the job for you as the travel is considerably shorter. Would love to see your Mk11 sometime.
  6. Sherpa 199a tank change

    A late model Alpina model 212 or 213, tank and saddle might do the trick. I saw at tank at the Stafford Show in the UK last year and thought that would be useful for longer distances etc. Only reason I didn't buy it the inset nuts for the later type fuel tap were pulled clean out of the tank, from over tightening.
  7. Bultaco 199a Frame Mods

    Yes, definitely the Todotrial bashplate a lovely piece of kit. Easy to fit and should have been fitted to the Sherpa 199A & B from day one! The Mikuni is a very good up grade over the original Bing. http://todotrial.com/es/tienda-tt/accesorios-y-recambios-para-trial/cubrecarter/placa-cubrecarter-de-aluminio-sherpa-detalle.html
  8. Bultaco 199a Frame Mods

    The following might be of use
  9. Bultaco Sherpa

    The 199B sidepanels fit directly into the sides of the 199B Airbox. The Airbox in turn is suspended from the bracket in the frame above. So I can't why this set up will not fit the Blue 199A frame pictured above.
  10. Bultaco Sherpa

    Nice 199A (Blue) original frame you have there. The re-working of the rear loop was a common modification to ape the set up on the last of the Sherpa's the 199B. If it was me I would re-marry the matching engine and frame. I would also go for a reproduction 199B airbox, filter and side panels. A great project, which just says to me " get the finger out on my own one".
  11. M199B

    Out of curiosity, why do you want to install a 5 speed cluster?
  12. 325 Cylinder head on 250 Model 49?

    The Model 49 Sherpa is the old style engine developed well before the 325cc engine. The first 325cc Sherpa engine came two models later with the M92. I don't think you would have any major difficulties dropping a complete 325 engine into a M49 frame. However converting a 250cc into a 325cc without dramatically alterating the crankcases, upgrading the crank assembly, bigger exhaust pipe etc, would prove impossible to my mind.
  13. What about Telford Feb 16th??

    For me Telford is a very good show, travelled over from Ireland last year for the first time and really enjoyed it. Now the show tickets bought, flight are booked, hotel accommodation secured and car hired, for this year's show. Roll on Feburary 16th & 17th cant wait.
  14. clutch spring tool

    Yes, cut a slice slightly larger than the diameter of the pin through an old scoket. Just make sure that is big enough to fit over the retaining post and large enough to put a squeeze on the spring.
  15. 1979 Fantic 200 engine removal

    Yeah, its a bit of a faff alright. I found removing it on the rear brake lever side always worked for me.
