After the success of the Sherpa T, Bultaco released the Alpina 250, a bike specifically built for enduro riders.
The 244.2c two-stroke single pushed 20 horsepower through a five-speed transmission which was shifted on the right (kick start lever on the left). Top speed was a bit over 72 miles per hour, and the 11″ of ground clearance and 7″ front fork travel meant that you could cover a wide variety of terrain. Bikes like this helped Bultaco win the world trials championship nine times in eleven years, and after three years the Spanish company offered a more powerful 350 variant. For more information on the 250 version of the Alpina, check out this article from Hemmings.
The seller of this example says that it would be “great restoration project or ride it the way it is. The tank and seat are original, the frame has been painted with the correct color, numbers match and the tank has been sealed.” He notes that the spark arrestor and fenders are from a later bike, and it also needs a tail light lens and a brake light switch.
