  1. I recently saw Dave Renham at InMotion advertising that he has Alpina Tanks. https://www.inmotiontrials.com/product/alloy-fuel-tank-bultaco-alpina-165-166-187-188-212-213-1975-on-nos-2/ https://www.inmotiontrials.com/product/steel-fuel-tank-bultaco-alpina-165-166-187-188-212-213-1975-on-nos-4/
  2. If Lynn and Dorothy Mobley we’re your previous spares vendor, I believe they sold on all their Bultaco parts to Ralph and Carol Weilding.
  3. Model 159 Sherpa T 350 (325cc), manufactured between September 1975 and March 1976.
  4. It should all line up, with the Cylinder Transfer Ports, the Piston Skirts and Cutaways matching. Is that an original piston (Mahle) or a aftermarket replacement?
  5. I’m just about to have my 199B painted and would love to know what the correct colours are . I recall that back in the day legend had it, that Bultaco painted the Forks and the Top & Bottom Yokes in Finnish Blue and the rest of the 199B (Tank and Side Panels) were finished in RAL 5015. Bearing in mind we received the 199B with a Polypropylene (Plastic) Tank here in Ireland and not the Homerlite metal Tank.

    199b manual

    In 40 years I have yet to come across a 199B specific manual. I recall that back in the day the factory produced a hand written version of the Spare Parts Manual. It basically was a 199 Spare Parts manual with 199B specific parts, written in long hand on the relevant page. No additional illustrations. Thinking about it, there never really was a 199A specific parts manual either. Well at least I never saw one at the importer’s, I worked in.
  7. Don’t forget there was the 50 mythical 6 speed 198B’s, that the French Importer some how managed to get built at the very last throw of the dice.
  8. The 325 came with a Bing Carburettor, so totally different. Although the numbers might sound similar a Bing 150 will not correspond in anyway with that of a Amal 150. The best advice received, is dump the Amal and get a Mikuni.
  9. If you’re looking for a “Desert Sled”, get yourself a Pursang or a Frontera.
  10. The very first batch of 198 & 199 came with Fibreglass Tanks. I had one on my very first Sherpa, which I recently found buried in our shed and have started to restore it.
  11. I presume you been in touch with Hugh’s Bultaco and Ralph’s Bultaco Parts US? Ralph, bought all of Jan Mobley’s stock. I believe Hogan Cycle Parts have stopped taking orders since February. I have no idea if they plan to restart, or sell their stock on to someone else.
  12. Every Bultaco that came out of the factory was 6v (barely 🤣😂) The Electrex World system can now offer 12v that can support LED lighting etc.
  13. His is a list of the Prefix Letters, that I came across some years ago, I’m afraid I cannot credit the source of the document as I cannot recall who the Author was.
