    Replies welcome, after owning my Bul for nearly 50 years now, I have now for the first time taken a look at the serial numbers. They match.

    What puzzles me is the title reads 1964, and I always thought it was a Matador. Serial numbers on the charts I found on line show that year Mat. to be 400.448 to 401.418. My number is 401.525! I do not find that number anywhere.

    I always felt she was sort of a nice slow mule. I could go anywhere. When the mud was too deep or the brush to thick, it still kept going. I did get caught in a creek one cold day and had to give up.

    I left her there over night. Next day my Bro came back with me and pulled her out. She’s been in storage for quite a few years and today I pulled her out, (it was apart). I am missing the front fender, one rear shock, one clip on, and the chain. Them mice are really a problem around here.

    Bback in ’72 I had a 250 Yamaha and was in an enduro race. I had made friends with a couple Germans that were also racing, one had the 250 Matador and the other brother had the 360 el Matedero??? Anyhow, Hauns let me take his 250 Mat’ for a ride. Unbelievable, the difference in power of the two, (Yamaha and Bultaco). I fell in love with that bike and told my friend, I will own one!!! 58 years old, not yet, but it will come to me before I die, beautiful bikes. No matter how old, stay on the pegs.
