1978 Bultaco Sherpa T, 340cc. Registration number YGY 254S. Frame number JB 19900686. Engine number JM 199001774.
Sold with the V5C and MOT certificates from 2014 and 2015.
The 350 version of Bultaco's famous Sherpa T trials motorcycle first appeared in 1972 as the model 92. The specification remained unchanged until 1975, and the model 151, when a modified frame lowered the weight to 91 kg and changes to the induction and exhaust resulted in a drop in power output to 17.5 bhp.
The 1977 Model 191 benefited from a power increase to 20.8 bhp but no significant changes were made until the 1981 Model 199B, when the engine capacity was increased to 340cc and a sixth ratio was added to the gearbox. This was the final version of the Sherpa T 350 and remained in production until 1985 when Bultaco went out of business.
YGY was first registered in the UK in 2012 and bought by our vendor in 2022 with the intention of entering some twin shock events. He gave it to his father to fettle it and when it was returned it had been restored too well to take out on the moors and rocks so it stayed in the garage and was only occasionally fired up and ridden locally.
Benefitting from being road legal this Sherpa should give much fun to the next owner.
Sold with the V5C and MOT certificates from 2014 and 2015.
