1975 Bultaco Pursang 250 Mk8

Engine no. PM13500086

For U.S. motocross fans, the words Bultaco Pursang conjure up fond images of the late Jim Pomeroy. In 1973, at age 20, Pomeroy served notice that America would be a coming force in international motocross, previously the domain of European riders. At the Spanish Grand Prix, his first race on the world stage, Pomeroy shocked the established order by riding his Pursang 250 to the overall victory, simultaneously become the first rider ever to win his debut motocross GP, the first American to win a GP, the first American to lead the MXGP point standings, and the first rider of any nationality to win an MXGP on a Spanish motorcycle.

Introduced in 1965, the Bultaco Pursang quickly became a favorite mount for what U.S. riders were calling 'rough scrambles,' a sport that would soon morph into motocross. By the time this 1975 Mk8 version arrived, the migration to long-travel suspension was on, so we see moved-up shocks making their first appearance on a Bultaco. Acquired from the estate of collector Mike Owens, this Pursang Mk8 was the recipient of a full restoration before joining the Carter Collection stable.
