atitagain Posted January 5 Report Share Posted January 5 When I was 15 my father bought a brand new Bultaco Sherpa, needless to say I spent more time on it than he did due to his work commitments. I loved it, super reliable and great to ride. Come forward 40 odd yrs and this (what I thought was a Sherpa) came up for sale locally at a reasonable price. it's all there, yes needs some work and a restore/rebuild but it doesn't look too bad. After checking the engine and frame number it seems it's an early Alpina M-8500619 and 9700356. I have had a quick search and it seem that these early Alpinas are basically a Sherpa with slightly different gear ratios. So here are my questions, I know this is the place to ask. Does it look like to you that is has a Sherpa tank seat until or any other Sherpa parts? and am I correct in my assumptions that it's not too far off a Sherpa? I am basically pleased with my purchase either way, I'll restore it anyway but I just wanted some expert eyes to see what others think.
