1969 Bultaco Metralla

In Spain, Sport by Tom WackerLeave a Comment

Bultaco was formed out of the failed Montesa Racing Division in 1958. Almost immediately Bultaco became a player in the trials and motocross segment of the sport. By 1969 you could buy a very competitive motocross bike right from your local dealer. The Bultaco dirt squirters are the stuff of legend.

The 1969 Metralla was a pretty competent ROAD bike. The 244 cc (14.89 CID) two stroke engine made 27.5 HP a when pushed through the 5 speed transmission had a top speed of 93 MPH (150 KmPH). Brakes were expanding shoes front and back, and were considered adequate at the time. Total weight was less than 250 LBS with a 3.7 gallon gas tank.

This particular Bultaco Metralla lives in Bethel, Connecticut. It is said to be an original survivor of unknown mileage (broken speedo from new). Carb and air cleaner have been changed and there is a small dent in the tank. Price is listed at $7,500 and you can get all the information for it on Cycle Trader. I do give the guy credit for bringing the bike into his kitchen to take the photos.
