In Off-Road, Spain by Tom WackerLeave a Comment

Bultaco was formed out of the wreckage of Montessa racing in 1958. Within one year they had their first racing win, taking 7 of the first 10 places in the Spanish Grand Prix 125cc class. In 1965 Bultaco completely dominated the Trials specialty with the two stroke Sherpa T, driving several British makers out of the business. In 1965 Bultaco introduced the Pursang 250 to America and the rest is history. For several years the Pursang absolutely dominated off road racing in all forms.
