Bultaco

Apologies for being off topic....but I had a Metralla 250 Mk.2. Bultaco advertising called it "The Racer you can run on the street". As a matter of fact, you could get a factory race kit for the Metralla (tuned pipe, hi-comp head, big carb). I got this and raced locally, pretending I was Mike Hailwood...

Many, many, years later I thought I'd find another Metralla to restore. Not easy to find as they were mostly all crashed to death (like my original). I did find one and fixed it up proper. Strangely though when I rode it for the first time, it seemed so tame and boring. I sold it to a guy in California.
