Can't is a four letter dirty word
Amazing bikes! The Cl100 Honda and the CT70 Suzuki are amazing restorations. Currently traveling in west Texas with one bar so we will need to add our story a little later!

We picked up a pair of Bultaco Montaderos “Mountain” after walking into our local bone yard.

Mine was a mutt and has a Bandido b61 frame and early Montadero M51 engine. It is 360cc’s and came with no expansion chamber. We restored it to this condition.

It shifts and brakes on the wrong side and likes to go backwards. Hey it’s a Bultaco!

This evolution started with my son Zeke telling me I couldn’t build a Drag bike out of a dirt bike in a month. We raced the Bultaco as a dirt bike the previous year, dirt tires and all, on the drag strip at an event called The Twist Off. The fastest it had gone was 12.4 seconds in the 1/8th mile.

I took Zeke’s challenge and he was kind enough to lend a hand.


We removed the existing swing and and made a new extended one.


Zeke tacked it up and then he made me finish welding it.



Because of time we made one engine modification lightening the flywheel. Other than that it remained the same as last year.


Used internal spacers to lower the front end


Made rear pegs


Made a set of wheelie bars


Air shifter


Steering dampener



Clip on and tires we were off to the races!



Then we went out racing The Twist Off!

We shaved 2 seconds off our our previous 1/8 mile and did 10.4 in the 1/8 mile. I raced Zeke on his Ducati 900 ss and beat me with a 9.6.




There is always next year...

Three great bikes make it almost impossible to decide!

But anyone crazy enough to build a 'Taco dragster deserves to be encouraged.

I don't think so - they don't support polls to my knowledge. I'll reach out to them - we should get something for the monthly fee I pay them :)

Thank you! Piglet and VanVan are great bikes also! To DTT and our DTT family we want to say thank you for voting for us but more importantly to all who continue to help others get their bikes back up and running our hats are off to you! Zeke is still walking around the house telling me how slow my Bultaco is sooo we will keep making it better! Thank you again!
