Perhaps the people in charge were not very receptive, or the paternalistic philosophy that F.X. Bultó subscribed to was no longer valid, but Bultaco had a particularly hard and uncompromising workers union that for sure, other similar companies such as the rival Montesa or car manufacturer Seat, perhaps did not have.
Vesterinen was destined to become three times World Trials champion 1976-78 for Bultaco. The first UK importer of the Bultaco Sherpa T was the Rickman Brothers, Don and Derek based in New Milton, Hampshire who were the makers of Metisse motocross frame kits and already had an association with the Spanish company through motocross.
We offer 3 nights for the price of 2”, or 3 people stay for the price of 2 (cheapest stays free) mid-week during term time on request (excluding Friday and Saturday nights). A unique opportunity to own a factory specification machine for the price of a production Sherpa.
From those who knew the enthusiastic Paco Bultó, he was a man that got the best out of people and workers were people. Malcolm won the 1973 Scottish Six Days which the factory used in their promotional material. The introduction of the first four-speed, 244cc Sherpa T model was to revolutionise the trials world when sold to the public.
