Update when You think you can spray having never took Art up knowing it will end in disaster but you think I might just pull it off that's what you keep saying to yourself then you look at yours and then a photo what it is meant to look like and you think of Mr John cleese from Fawlty Towers wear covers his head and squats and jumps up and down.

Update forgot to show picture of Tank I was copying they usually Painted but trying to save cash for parts for bike as all ready had lots spray cans and thought why Not.Must of been high on Pain killers to even attempt it. As this pattern is hard the red in particular then finding gold trim Anyway the Tank has been sanded back to Primer. Might have to look into cost of proper paint and buy the Astro Tank Graphics and sweet talk Birkenhead Art Tech to do it for me and flash the Cash if all fails.

I have made 4 offers to seller explaining I have shipping and the dreaded Duty to pay. Unfortunately he wants Top Dollar as they are the Old ones. So will keep looking for a proper Astro tank and seat while looking for graphics. If any body on Wirral has any FT tyres with Tread for my 21 front and 18 rear Akront and know longer using send me a Message. Trying to buy a 19 inch Borrani from states but got outbid Thanks

So am on wrong page should be on hobby one as my Sons pointed out. Anyway look what am going to be bidding on. It is a Bultaco Pursang 125 frame with a 250cc Go Kart Engine in. The bike is identical to mine my engine is a 110 and she has a 153 in her. I will only bid so much as I would have to pay Auction fees what I dislike like a taste of Bile. The bike is on HH Classic so please bid if really want it. Thoe be warned it's missing parts and parts getting expensive to buy and they don't say if has compression or if gears select so please ask Auction before bidding. With us leaving at Xmas I am thinking there be some good bikes coming up Cheap as the Banks are putting up Overdraft charges as well. PS Only to be used on Private Land or Police will confiscate and Crush just thought I will throw that in if teens reading 🚓. As seen a few riding Up the New Chester road on a Motocross bike without plates last few days. Would hate to see Motocross Crushed so change Tyres and get Plates and Insurance and a Very good Helmet and maybe Leatt body Armour 🧐

Update finely got a answer from HH Classic Auctions had to update my credit card details before I got reply thoe.
The 153 Go Kart engine( NOT Pursang ) has compression and gears select thoe please check your self as you Never believe what strangers say. You check and you do your homework then you decide if correct. Tried to buy this I think over a year ago off HH Classic it's a Mark 12 model 220 with matching vins so sick at the time I only threw 2 bids think went for around a Grand felt even more sick than I didn't bid enough . Photo of mark 12 I tried to win and Pursang 100 with 153 engine from other side. When gets closer will bid only if not much interest in the bike as starting on the Pursang mark 4 soon as i need a clutch puller thoe as my clutch plates look stuck tight as clutch is frozen.

Speaking to the American owner who was selling the Bultaco Astro wanted $6.500 for her. It's a model 146 with matching numbers thoe with shipping and the Duty and insurance would be more like $9000 dollars. He said he would like to buy a speedway bike from hear but same problem duty so expensive to ship. Will keep looking thoe maybe next year see what Brexit throws up on eBay or Auction sites.

The Pursang mark 4 250cc engine has come out ok but still need a Bench Polisher as got so much to polish. My rotation went on mine still have mops but compound is like a brick. Got them free with mops totally rubbish most likely some cleaning goo went hard and the sellers thought we will sell it as polish soap. Need to sand down frame and then Spray or paint as powder coat is to costly as need a Pursang mark 6 rear brake hub or shoes as Sherpa brake hubs to small and Frontera rear brake hub to big and wrong shoes so need that to buy and other bits.

The Mrs helped me carry Frame back in looks terrible starting to strip parts off to get clean for rebuild. Thoe have some Pursang shocks from other bike so in the shed they go and the handle bars NO good going to put Flat Track on when bought some. Bought 2 pairs of Amal clutch and brake levers so just slide on as found some cables as well. Unfortunately got no rear brake rods will have to adapt. The Pursang engines model 101 , 103, and the 680 engine by window. Finding Pursang Exhaust for 68 will be hard thoe and the mark 6 101model 175cc still looking. Suppose will have to begin I will make a coffee and throw some pain killers down neck then start unbolting everything. What fun but first i will Play B52s CAKE to do my muscle stretch exercise's in front of telly

Realised am using this page like a diary of build should be on Hobby site. Always liked the 2 stroke especially in 70s the Yamaha RD400 or RD250 thoe not keen on water cooled bikes won't touch them. Anyway Forks have come up OK. Looking at the Fork tree looks original but might put a Pursang tree on so can use the handle bar Square clamps with the 8 bolts and nuts.

Starting on cleaning the Pursang exhaust need to buy a few Exhaust spray Paint and bottles of White spirits for this and the other 2 Pursang ones. Coffee then back to work in cleaning the old paint off or should I just throw a few extra pain killers and down neck and mellow out to Floyd Joking would I do a thing like that at my age 😁

Looks like I might be buying my Stairway if they don't sought this mess out. Also Stock Market looks like it's hemorrhaging and sinking into the Red Abyss. Dare I hope of picking up a Bultaco Astro cheap from the States the irony of it that I might be dead while waiting weeks for delivery if found one in a few months. Exhaust looks a bit better so if can have a Few sunny dry days to sand down Frame would be good while waiting for Exhaust Springs for the Mark 6 to place exhaust on.

This is a Harley Davidson XR750
They wear used in 1972 and upwards on the American Flat Track as it does the speed on the corners and the straight also it's light as has a Alloy engine.
This is the One everyone would like including me but I know my limitations but it's a XR750 you don't just walk away. If can not find Astro would definitely love this.
It's on HH classic Auction site she's a Beaut
Still cleaning the Pursang parts thoe picked up a Brake rod for £2.50 but £3 postage crazy ( Photo ) and still looking for more cheap Pursang bikes to buy. Wish I could trade everything for a Astro. Just to have to build a Bultaco Frankenstein Flat Track instead till find one. Stay safe and look after the Old please check they have food and medical supplies they must be scared watching News 😷

I hate that happening, even if the total price is still reasonable. We've imported stuff from the States sometimes with customs and postage costing three or four times the cost of the item, so annoying.

Conversely I've driven 50 miles away for a cheap part which probably cost far more in fuel than posting it.

There's a suspension mount that is made in Europe but it is for an old American car (albeit a European manufacturer), nobody stocks it or can order it in this country. Its about £12 in the states but it is close-enough replacement for a different part that costs £80 in this country. While it saves us some money, the idea of forking out £40-£50 for a £12 item that is made in Europe leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

Hi the first time i bought from states it was Bultaco Pursang Exhaust had shipping so thought thats fine. Then got a text from H.M Duty & Excise saying Charging me handling fees then got duty charge on top. If we do a deal with states and duty scrapped thats great but Not if in the long haul we are worst off as we need to think whats Best for our grandkids NOT us

I was given a Shield letter and thought O Crap am so Dead as have been finding Breathing harder as weeks pass. Anyway went into what's the point of doing anything but was so bored with that so sanded frame and sprayed it. Have put forks on and that's it until I can do exercise so doing a little bit each day if can but chest hurts but it's a hobby to keep mind active and body that was the whole point of it in first place. Anyway stay safe and do take care

Blue Oyster Cult (Don't Fear) The Reaper

The Pursang Mark 4 boat seat has a ghastly cut down middle a chip out of back and paint is flaking off and cracking on top. The Tank I ruined head down with embarrassment as I believe I could actually paint with different colours ( Page 2 ) So what did I do i sanded down and sprayed silver as had a few cans. Unfortunately something happened to paint or mixed with the other dry paint and all turned sticky and tacky and never went hard. Had No choice but to sit in Garden with a knife and peel it like a potato nearly got it to original red now. So when finished will show picture as to embarrassing at moment. I don't mind telling people about how i messed up but it's correcting your mistake what is important don't leave the mess for other people to take care off. Anyway take care and keep yourself safe.

Rolling Stones. PAINT IT BLACK
Morning Going to store the Pursang Mark 4 until I can find a original Air Box and side Panels to buy for it. Got the spray goo of tank just badge spaces left so sandpaper yet again. Decided Not Spraying NO more NOT going through this again. So much work deflated back tyre as got 2 broken spokes also tyre has gone hard. Will need to take to garage has hands have swollen again and also no way got the strength to remove tyre unless had a chainsaw ( Joke) Anyway will need to find a Astro seat for it NO way touching that seat base to much work also haven't got a seat for the boat base anyway. I bidded on the Pursang twice at HH classic but the price to far I think went around £1500 and with there fee's on top decided am Out. The Mrs wants the 3 Sherpa bikes gone now so been given my orders as they have sat and sat and she wants house decorated. Sold the Suzuki LT80 so she has hall back now wants dining room back she has been patient with my hobby so that's fine. Take Care of Yourselves

Hazel O'Connor. Will You
Morning the News constantly Doom and Gloom wear all going to be poor and broke so I thinking maybe I can pick up a bike cheap. Unfortunately Not the case when looking on eBay as still very expensive. Been looking at the big 2 stroke Road bikes Yamaha RD and Kawasaki KH or H1 or a Suzuki see if I can pick one up for Cash with a V5 with same Vins on document. The Pursang's still need parts and won't just pay whatever as am in NO rush to build with lockdown. The 3 Bultaco Sherpa's and spare tanks with all the box's of parts maybe I could do a trade for a Road 2 Stroke what they don't use anymore. Thoe most likely will put them up on eBay as single bike's as nobody will want to trade as with all the Fear being generated it's Cash,Cash Cash they're Want. Anyway take care of Yourselves and see if can find my Astro/Pursang/Yamaha/Kawasaki ? 😁

Pink Floyd Wish You Wear Hear
Bought a Pursang Silencer for the Model 100 but still haven't found the correct exhaust so it's useless till I find it but its a slow project a bit hear and there. Been searching house for Sherpa Parts and came across the spare Pursang Piston. Bought it as spare for the 175 model 101 incase I blew the piston racing it. I put the 3 Bultaco Sherpa up on eBay for a Trade put just got Cash offers so took them down as just wanted to trade as don't like selling usually just donate my stuff. Take care of yourselves

AC/DC Shot Down In Flames
Hi Just got a Message from HH Classic informing me that Bultaco bikes are on there Auction Site. Seems Sale didn't go through as there is the Pursang I bid on. Did tell them to tell buyer's that it was a Go Kart Engine Not Pursang but they never updated add. Anyway would like to know was it that reason or is there something wrong with engine. Will phone and ask as would like a chance to Bid again Thoe thinking with Government Stopping the Wages in October and Brexit will better Bikes be coming on the Market. Decision's Decision's I miss the 70s sooo much.

Led Zeppelin. When The Levee Breaks.
Bought some Steering lock stop's so can screw Mudguard on. Unfortunately someone put a different screw in and is badly wedged in none of my allen keys fit so borrowed some. One came close but none fitted seems might need a different key to remove it. Might push Pursang to my local garage they might have the tool to remove it for me if I can Not do so.
