  1. why not get both ? scooter for the shops/beach/wife and alpina for the numerous endless trails ?
  2. Hi your Sherpa s has femsatronic electronic ignition , no points , condenser , lighting coils or any serviceable parts . if you want to run lights you will need a complete points ignition or a femsatronic off a lobito .From what I can tell its a 100cc Sherpa s and on some of those the crankshaft taper was a smaller size to the bigger engines so be aware of what you may purchase .Easiest way is to give Lynn mobley a call as he will point you in the right direction
  3. Hi , the equivalent year pursang (model 104 ) parts will fit straight on but the cases will need matching as the transfers are bigger on the pursang . you wont get 352cc mk7 or 363 cc mk8 pursang parts to fit as they have different stud centres plus they have longer stroke , not forgetting the airbox and exhaust , ignition and primary weights . Its a Sherpa T a trials bike , theres a reason Bultaco made the frontera and pursing , enjoy it for what it is .
  4. I would say at least 80%of Sherpas were exported , most came to the uk , keep on at in motion to date it but probably all they will say is manufactured 74/75
  5. I hope they came with a portable welder
  6. Hi Glenn , are you sure its just not been tweaked , ive never seen a homerlight unit any different than the one on the right , I could be wrong but I think these 2 are the early paint design , the later ones had the silver swoop up and back ending in a point just in front of the fuel cap similar to the matador mk3/4 design
  7. Please tell me your not going to butcher this frontera?
  8. Hi , I still have the cup that was issued to riders as my Dad rode it , I think he was on a Dalesman that year , Peter kean from Preston
  9. theres one on ebay now for 1200 he says he will courier for extra which will be about 120 , its a matching nos mk 6 , your spare 175 motor will drop straight in , don't think you will find one much cheaper . a good runner ready to go is worth 2 to 2500 all day long , all the pursangs at Stafford went for at least 1500 plus premium apart from a mk 10 without wheels in bits and a mk12 for about 900 plus premium. mk7, 8 and 12 seem to command the best prices

    Bultaco engine

    The mk 6 was the only pursang to be offered in 5 capacities , 125,175,200,250,350 (326) the sherpa s scrambler had been discontinued by this time and it was this bike that traditionally had the small capacaties,
  11. I think the reason Gilles hasn't used the last ignition cover is because hes gone to a hydraulic clutch and it may have been better to play around with the earlier heavier case , all credit to him as it looks great.
  12. The chequerboard bodywork was taken from Mike Kidds leathers design
  13. The first Astro was the model 90 and was based heavily on the model 86 pursang and was in fact called the pursang astro , followed by the 105 and 106 models (250 and 326) then the model 123.The first chequerboard astros were the 145 and 146 and fitted with a rear hurst airheart disc brake , the 163 and 164 were very similar and the last astro was the 195 which had the option of either capacity if you swapped the complete top end as they had the 64mm stroke and if you went 250 had to use the 70mm bore size. The prices of astros has gone up by quite a bit so the most cost effective would be to get any mk5/6/7 pursang and fit it with astro bodywork , the differences would be minimal (frame bottom cradle is narrower on 145 onwards for example) Gilles escuyer in france has done this and its a real smart bike

    Trial Front wheel

    It was only the 370 s that had the bigger brake , the 250s kept the small one till end of production , The first pursang to use the non flanged rim was the mk 7 and im pretty sure the Sherpa had the flanged rims up to the model 124/125.If its a motocross wheel it can only be a mk6 pursing as the 5 had a same style hub but in steel painted black
  15. This is an addition and non standard
