Originally formed in 1959, Bultaco was created primarily by former employees of the Montesa racing department. With time, Bultaco became known for off-road competition bike, and their most popular in the US was the Pursang. Bultaco offered the Pursang in engine sizes ranging from 125cc to 370cc before the first closure of the factory in 1979.
In 1974, to celebrate Bultaco’s victory in the 250cc Spanish Grand Prix, Bultaco released all new models, which were probably as close as you could get to buying a factory race bike at the time. Different paint schemes separated the 250cc from the big-bore 360cc – the latter got a red and yellow scheme you see here while the former was adorned in blue and white. The 250 weighed just under 210 pounds dry and it produced about 34 horsepower.
“There are two types of race freaks – Bultaco freaks and non Bultaco freaks. If you want to win in motocross, get a Bultaco, hold it wide open and hang on!” Motocross Action- June 1975
This example (VIN: PB-13500086) was given a “full mechanical and cosmetic restoration” after spending time in the collection of Michael Owens (a partner in the Legends & Heroes motocross museum). The seller notes that the only flaws are some scratches on the lower frame rails from where the bike had been supported on a display stand. The OEM sidestand is included. The bike does not have a title, you will only get a bill of sale. Find this Pursang for sale in Aliso Viejo, California with bidding up to $2,100 and the reserve not yet met
