I'm the new guy here.

I'm looking to build/buy (cheap) a cafe-style bike to cruise around on. I like the Triumph Thruxton 900, but I think it may be a bit out of my price range. I was hoping for a stepping stone bike: cool, but not so pricy.

I have a '66 Bultaco 125 which was my Dad's bike (dirt bike), and have done a bit of work on that, but it needs points and a condenser. Info on those bits for that bike would be great as well.

Thanks in advance!

what part of the country are you in,you also have to not use sucha over used word as cheap,it implys so much negativity..smirks.What about inexpensive see that sounds like a nicer bike already at an affordable price.Seriously I find more cheap bikes looking in drive ways and garages of different neighborhoods and I leave a note on their door or bike or car if they are interested in selling it to please give me a call.Every single note has got a call back and a low asking price from the owner.So thats my tip for you LOOK AROUND
You can always try craigs list and ebay sometimes shipping is the downside.Pre 78 will be the best candidates for the cafe look.

Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.

Welcome. If you follow the link for Bultaco from the links above, you should find parts and answers to your 'Taco questions.
Good Luck.
Maybe you can find a nice Metralla, instant caferacer and the start of a nice Bultaco collection.
