Lee halsall Posted April 18, 2019 Report Share Posted April 18, 2019 Hi folks , just signed up to ask before plunging in and buying . I had a 1968 Sherpa T around 1972 ,I remember it being a very nice ride compared to the British stuff I'd been riding , foolishly sold it . Now I have retired ,I'm looking for another Bultaco but quite fancy an Alpina .I only ever saw articles in American Dirt Bike mags ,never saw one in the flesh but always hankered after one . As I understand it , Alpinas up to 75 are basically Sherpa Ts but with closer ratio gearboxes ,something that would suit my end use of unhurried trial riding . After 75 ,I believe they have a Pursang crank and left hand gearchange as well as longer swinging arm , is this right ? I spotted a right hand gearchange 350 ( 325) on ebay so that tells me it's pre 75, although advertised as a 75 ,is there a big improvement with the revised post 75 bike ? Quite a lot of the ebay bike is missing , headlight ,mudguards speedo and rear spark arrestor , Mudguards appear to be alloy ,so I can source them and make the front mounting ,hoe about the rest ,hard to come by? Any advise gratefully received Lee Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
