    Does anyone know what exgaust is better? The spark arrestor or the banana?

    This a model 159. Thanks for the nice comment ? When i purchased the bike it had clearly had some money spent on it in the right areas but had been assembled quite poorly. I got it in a deal with another bike and it was running very poor. After taking it apart and doing some homework i realised it had a worn out carburettor slide (a well known bing issue) I sourced a new slide from bultaco uk and adjusted carb accordingly and now shes spot on, very happy with it. Are you having issues with yours?

    Thank you. Got a few things to be getting in with. Either my 360 frontera or the Ossa explorer behind the sherpa.

    Before and After

    First bultaco I have purchased. When i done me homework and realised how it was meant to look I knew what had to be done ? Cheers to the guys at Inmotion (Bultaco uk) for the advice and parts.
  7. Seconded, a new slide off of bultaco uk will do the Job. I had exact same issue. Bing carbs slide is made of the same material as the body and they wear out, you end up with a horse shoe worn in the engine side of the slide ?
  8. Ok people thanks for the advice. The tank has the proper grommets with sleeves fitted to prevent the issue with the front bolt. Here it is at the moment ?
  9. I am in the process of putting my sherpa back together. I have fitted the fuel tank (aluminium) with the long mounting bolt through the front, but am a bit lost at the back of the tank. Is it just the seat that holds these tanks in place? Or is there a strap of some sort that holds it? Thanks in advance
  10. Yeh ? no wont be butchered. Nothing that will not be able to be undone. All frontera parts will be kept and stored. It needs a lot of work, found some sections that need repair on frame and engine has to come apart. I like them with the metal mudguards, but I want to race vintage flat track on it.
  11. Astro/pursang flat track bike build underway soon. Think i'm gonna go for the earlier style with a rear fender and pursang seat though rather than the seat unit
  12. Same height as myself, comfortable at that height? With the lower bars I always felt hunched over.
  13. This was where i got to yesterday, i stripped the bike to put it back to standard 159 colours etc. I also removed the extra height blocks from the swing arm
