Make sure you go below the discrption to see 58 photos 1966 Bultaco Mercurio 175cc. # M921218. This is an all original Bultaco with a very interesting history. It was mechanically restored, like new tires and the gas tank was cleaned so it is very rideable. Already won #1 in Class at the 2014 LeMay Museum Vintage Bike Festival in Tacoma Wa. , From the last owner; Theres a nice story associated with this motorcycle, that Id like to share. My father bought the Bultaco in 1975, and tinkered with it and rode it around Edmonds where he lived. Then in 1977 a move to California made him decide to sell it. I worked in a local bike shop and knew a sales rep that owned several unique bikes. I sent him to my Dad and he bought the bike. For the next decade whenever Id see Keith Id inquire about the Bultaco, and hed smile and say the same thing- I havent ridden it much, but its snug as a bug in my garage. As life goes, wed talk every few years, but I just assumed hed sold it long ago, especially after he moved to Arizona. Then in 2012 he came to town and we had a chance for a catch up visit. Much to my amazement he still owned the Bultaco! He was clearing out his garage, and he wondered if Id like to buy it. So the little bike came home. But Im afraid I have to part with it, so I hope it finds a home in someones garage that will enjoy it. This Bultaco has been locally owned since the 1960s. It was fully restored mechanically in 2014 by Dale Franklin and Paul Perolli. A few of the restored features include: Caswell coated fuel tank by Russ Foy (Custom Classic Paintworks in Ravensdale) Front and rear wheels unlaced, cleaned, bearings greased and rebuilt with new tires and tubes Bultaco Matador center stand mounted Carburation disassembled, cleaned and 100% reliable Electrical system 100% operational New chain Starts easily and runs perfectly All body parts and alloy parts are 100% stock and NOT repainted or restored. Clean title This bike has been ridden at the 2014 and 2015 Isle of Vashon, and did a great job. Won #1 in Class at the 2014 LeMay Museum Vintage Bike Festival in Tacoma This does not happen very often. Also a side note, when Kevin checked out the bike (when he was buying it) he opened the tool door and found the oil measuring cup and it still had his dads written note on it. Just tells you this is an unmolested motorcycle. Great starter vintage bike and it has won a trophy. 1966 Bultaco Mercurio 175cc. Cond. # 2. .
