Post Listing Update: The BIN was lowered to $6,000, but that still wasn’t enough to attract any action on this Bultaco Streaker.
The Bultaco Streaker was a beautiful little cafe racer that was only produced for 3 years. Rumors suggest that just 28 were imported into the US before the EPA changed emissions regulations in 1979, effectively rendering this bike (and most other two-stroke highway vehicles at the time) illegal.
The Streaker was actually offered with either a 75cc or 125cc engine – the latter produced just 10 horsepower but it was in a frame designed with help from a aerospace manufacturer, plus it came with cast aluminum wheels, a steering stabilizer, and disc brakes. Even when it was released, the bike was considered “exquisite” and a collector’s item. For more information on the Streaker (and a pleasant tale of how someone has been trying in vain to get one of these for decades), check out this tale on Hooniverse.
This example (VIN: VB204004310) has just 106 miles on the odometer but it “has been in storage for years”. For this to get back on the road it will need a new rear tube and the usual engine prep that comes when a bike has been sitting. The seller also documents a hole in the side of the seat and some paint chips.
