Bultaco Sherpa – 50 Years!

On 12th July 2015, the racing ‘Circuit De Barcelona’, Catalunya was the splendid setting for the appreciation of one of the world’s most famous trials motorcycles, the Bultaco Sherpa T.

In 1965, Ulsterman, Sammy Miller had left the English Ariel behind and developed the 244cc Sherpa to become a true world beater of a machine. It effectively turned the page on the history of motorcycle trials.

Here are some images from the celebrations, courtesy of Motocat, Victor Martin and Merce Gou.
