The frame number will date it which is on the headstock, I'd guess it's a model 150 from 1975 with a later model tank fitted.  If you send the frame and engine numbers to In Motion who are Bultacoi specialists they will provide a dating certificate. Why do you want the certificate, to register it ?

Hi,thanks for the info woody. I’ve been onto them the other day,just waiting for the guy ringing back.

the bike is already registered,was done in 1992.the log book states “date if manufacturer unknown “. Wellllll wasn’t any World Wide Web about them lol.thought I’d try and get it correctly registered to the correct year.

you say “later model tank”?which one should be on? I’ve looked st loads of pics from all over the place,most I’ve seen from 75 have this on but some don’t. Which one should be on? 

Many thanks woody

More accurately, a model 150 was produced late 1974 to probably mid 1975 and was then replaced by the next model which was visually very different. From the factory the 150 had a fibreglass one piece tank/seat unit like this:

For the UK this was replaced at import with an alloy one piece tank/seat unit like this, as fibreglass had been made illegal for road use:

The next model had seperate tank and sidepanel units with a tank similar to yours

Hay thanks for that.

do farnive found out model 150 was produced for 5 months from Oct 1974 .599 units built,so I’ve read. As for tanks,mine looks like a 150-199 etc etc lol lol. I can’t find a pic of of original 150s with all the same tank.

im currently looking for an original parts list and will try and track down from there.

many thanks for replying m8

The tank on yours is from a later blue model, the 199a from 1979. This style tank was introduced on the last red bike, the 199 in 1978.

The tank fitted to the 150 is as per the pictures I put up earlier, It was the last Sherpa fitted with the one piece tank seat unit.  The next model, the 158/159 had a seperate tank and seat with seperate side panels. The tank on this Sherpa and on the 182/183 and 190/191 was similar to yours but not the same as it didn't taper towards the rear like yours. These three models were pretty much identical

From new none of the bikes had a brace on the handlebars in the early to mid 70s, these were introduced later on. The blue bike in the picture was mine and had modern renthals fitted

This link will give you pictures of how the factory produced the bikes. As mentioned before the model 150/151 for the UK had a one-off alloy tank in blue/silver and white mudguards not alloy so you won't find factory pictures for that. If you want to see what that looked like check ebay and search for the Haynes manual for Bultaco as it is the bike on the front cover
