    The whole point of going with this plastic tank was perceived ease. After all my struggles against rusty, leaky, flaky old steel on my CL125S tank, and all the horror stories of what modern fuels do to fiberglass, I was really hoping to just have something I could slap on and go. At this point, that ship has sailed.

    Plastic tank, if it has bumps you might be able to fill them with the same stuff you repair ski's with! P-tex I think it was called.

    Vinyl wrap covers a multitude of sins.

    .... & I think it needs a long tank

    I sort of agree, but I don't want it to be uncomfortable to ride. I'm truly going for "roadster," not "pseudo-racer."

    If I had all the money in the world...

    Interestingly, we had Mark Atkinson on the podcast to talk about Alpha right after he acquired the Model 199 Sherpa [EDIT: No, it's a 350 Alpina] that he used for this build. We talked about what I was trying to do with my Bultaco, and he later said that my project was the inspiration for the direction he went with that bike. (Although I want my bike to have a usable front brake, a decent amount of trail, and a muffled exhaust.)

    I firmly believe you could build anything out of a Bultaco motor.

    ... but obviously it would be even better if you used a Montesa motor

    Yup, they made one stone-axe simple design do it all. While the rest of the world was transfixed by a proliferation of multi-cylinders, cams, valves and gimmicks, these Spaniards stuck with this one dirt-simple engine, using just three basic moving parts: a crank, a rod, and a piston. It wasn't that they lacked sophistication. They were among the first to use solid-state ignition; they were among the first to pioneer modern long-travel forks and shocks. At the same time, they proved that the ultimate sophistication is simplicity.

    They made simplicity work like no one else. Think of it. To cover the speed/performance spectrum from trials (0 to 15 mph) to full-on roadracing (100-plus mph) you'd expect a manufacturer to have several specialized engine designs. Senor Bulto built just one.

    This article was one of the reasons I became a Bultaco fanboi almost 40 years ago. Read the full text HERE.

    Had a friend that fitted a reed valve and Mikuni carb on his Bultaco trials bike,
    it actually did seem to improve the power delivery for what that is worth. No top end improvement, mostly midrange.
