New Year Quiz

Guess the identity of the rider/modifier of this 340 Bultaco Sherpa!

Bultaco - SSDT

The photo was taken at the SSDT in the early eighties – yes we know which year, but do you know who the rider of this modified machine was?

Bultaco enthusiasts will straight away notice the larger alloy air-box, different mudguard stays, additional length mud-flap on the front mudguard, different tank filler cap, much modified clutch casing and operating arm location!
