    Bultaco Astro.History lesson needed

    I would love a Astro but seems every year two steps back from bike.My older brother was a motorcycle mechanic he thought i was reckless hit the corners to fast and bought me a sherpa trials for fifty quid in 80s and my sliding days wear over but he was correct i was reckless then

    Bultaco Astro.History lesson needed

    I was looking at the Pursang model list to get as close to the Astro and modify for road use a few years ago.I was a bit worried about what it would look like and what bad reactions copying a Astro.The cost always comes in the Astro so expensive the Pursang depends on model and condition.Then parts list to modify not cheap prices going up.But there seems no end for brexit and getting older so might gamble and and get a cheap non runner pursang as the cost to modify will bite less than buying a Astro

    Bultaco Astro.History lesson needed

    Thanks for replys Seems like the Americans and Canadians got the most also not that many built looking at production list.Been trying to do research but not much on way of answers
  9. Can not find much on why we never got Astros in UK been after one for a while but price rise and sterling pounds got worse against the dollar because of brexit.The Astro and pursang 360 are they same engine.Biggest guestion thoe why no one bought one and put on road as local run around.Been on youtube only seen on race tracks no American seen on road with them.Thanks

    Trial Front wheel

    Hi they do look weird the wheel was a spare the original is missing 2 spokes walking past scrap yard tomorrow and will see if he has 2 spokes. Most of time cleaning of rust or soaking parts in spirits to get oil and crap of threads and lots of polishing getting tired with weather getting colder.

    Bultaco headlight

    Hi when open there are clips on opposite sides when unclasp should bulb and innards come straight out leaving glass and bowl.Never done one so don't want to damage and putting back together same way I suppose.Been looking for other people who done this and other electric work on Bultacos as better to watch and learn before attempting.

    Trial Front wheel

    Hi don't see any marking the other wheels don't have the rims up turned and have dome in middle.Has Motorcross on tyre but that means nothing as tyres change.
