1977 Bultaco Pursang 250 Mk10

Frame no. PB19200832

The Bultaco Pursang was introduced in 1965 and quickly became a favorite for what U.S. riders were calling "rough scrambles," soon to morph into motocross. In 1973, riding a Pursang 250, unknown American Jim Pomeroy, age 20, served notice that the USA would be a coming force in international motocross. In his first race on the world stage, Pomeroy took the overall victory at the Spanish Grand Prix; in doing so, he became the first rider ever to win his debut motocross GP, the first American to win an MXGP and the first rider of any nationality to win a motocross GP on a Spanish motorcycle.

By the time the Mk10 Pursang arrived in 1977, the move to long-travel rear suspension was on, so we now see a pair of moved-up shocks and a reinforced swingarm. Though Pomeroy never rode this particular bike, he did autograph the gas tank. The Bultaco is from the collection of Linda Pomeroy, his widow, and is titled in her name. A complete, low-hours example, it comes with the original owner's manual. Also included in the sale is a pair of riding gloves signed by Jim Pomeroy.
