1974 Bultaco 121 360 Pursang Vintage Motorcycle Restoration

Another one rescued from the crusher.  This was the last year for the right side shifter.    This bike had been sitting a long time in the Southwest, and needed everything, but was pretty complete.  A new expansion chamber had to be fabricated to replace the rusted out and smashed in original.  Almost 100 hours went into buffing and polishing all aluminum.  All original fasteners were sent out for replating, as well as all chrome.  Original fiberglass tank was stripped, repaired, re gel coated, primed and painted along with painted stripes.  Original side covers were also stripped, refinished and repainted.  The original Telesco rear shocks were disassembled.  The pistons were rechromed, and then reassembled with all new seals and cosmetically restored.  Engine was fitted with new Wiseco piston and rings.  All new bearings and seals in engine.  And yes the tires are correct NOS Pirelli’s from the 70’s in perfect condition.   Engine and frame numbers match.  DSC05197DSC05188DSC05189DSC05191DSC05192DSC05193DSC05194DSC05195DSC05198DSC05199DSC05200DSC05201DSC05202DSC05203DSC05204DSC05205DSC05206DSC05207DSC05210DSC05211DSC04971DSC04966  I think one will be hard pressed to find a more correct and meticulously restored 121 as this.
