Bultaco motorycles return to production - Motorbike Writer

Those of us who rode dirt bikes in the 60s and early 70s remember the "thumbs up" Spanish Bultaco motorcycles. Here it is 2014 and they're making news with a new electric motorcycle. From the looks of the photos, the front fork looks very un-mainstream too.

I'll never forget a quote I read in 1998 attributed to Francisco X. Bulto, the Spaniard who started the company, who died at 86 in August 1998. On his deathbed, knowing that he would die soon, he is quoted as saying, "Bring me my mustache wax and my best Bultaco shirt. For a trip like this, you must be at your best." Indeed!

I hope this storied marquee will do well with these modern bikes.
