Hand polished cover for 1977 Bultaco 250 Pursang

I cleaned and polished my EBay Clutch Cover today.  I used a Brillo pad and Aluminum wheel cleaner to remove the grease and grime.  Then I hand polished with metal polish and a cloth.  The bike will be raced so I'm not looking for a mirror finish.

I have been doing some spring cleaning and came across these Hallman boots.  If anyone is interested send me an offer at  I think they are a size 10.  They're little rough as you can see from the photos.

Fenders arrived today for 1965 Greeves Motocross Special

New aluminum fenders arrived today from Speed and Sport.  They will need some trimming.  The plan is to replace the 19" front wheel set up for desert racing with a 21" wheel more suitable for motocross, hence the narrow front fender..

New Clutch Cover Case for my 1977 Bultaco 250 Pursang

A new clutch cover case arrived from EBay today.  When the motor was rebuilt, the builder warned me that the cover was in bad shape.  He used JB weld to repair it but told me that I may want to source another one. So last week I noticed a big spot of tranny oil under the Bul.  Close inspection revealed that the repair didn't hold.  I found this deal on EBay.  Next step is to buff and polish the new case, procure a gasket and install it.
