  1. That looks just like the 2001 I have. I could not get the spec link to open. The video is cool. Thanks much!
  2. I should work on that. Up to now, I have not figured out how to post images here.
  3. I made a impulse purchase today. I saw a posting on AdvRider, commenting on a Craig's List posting for a 2001 Beta ALP 200. It was a posting from June, so I thought it would likely be gone. I decided to go take a look if it was still available. It was, and now I own it. It has a California license plate. I was surprized to find it was a four stroke and has electrica start. It looks like it should be a crap load of fun, but I really don't know anything about this bike. I kind of reminds me of a GasGas Pampera; a hybrid between trials and trail. Are the Pampera and the ALP shooting for the same market? It seemed to have a much stronger build quality compared the Pampera. My other bikes are: a 2007 KTM 450 EXC, a 2005 KTM 640 Adventure, a 2004 BMW 1150 GS, a 1977 Triumph Bonneville, a 1975 Montesa Cota 247 T, and a 1967 Bultaco Campera 175. I'm thinking the Beta might round out the collection, but I'm really interested in knowing more about it.

    1967 Bultaco 175 Campera

    I have a high resolution photo of the bike now. Anyone up to walking me through the process of posting it. I don't have a clue how to do that. I suspect that involves reducing the resolution and posting it somewhere that I can link from, but that is about all I can guess about the process. Alternately, I could send the photo to someone if they were willing to post it. It shows very nice. Worth a look. Thanks much!

    1967 Bultaco 175 Campera

    Thanks for the cool information. I had not run across any of that. I finally made a deal for the bike; $1200. From what I learned, that might be $200 more than the market value, but I'm quite happy.
  6. I have met a gentleman in his 80's who has a pristine garaged, well running 1967 Bultaco. He is will willing to sell it to me if I can figure out a fair price. Any suggestions where I might be able to get pricing advice on this? Thanks Bob

    1974 Montesa

    Of course, I have tried Google. I did not find as much related to the Cota as I thought I would. Sometimes user communities can put you on the right track, even when Google fails. Although that does not happen as much as it use to. When I post things on one of my webistes, or a forum, I'm somethings surprised how quickly I see it pop up in Google searches. Give the size of the internet universe, I find that amazing. Of course you are always a little exposed to looking stupid when you ask a question; but at my age, I don't give Sh.. about that. Most people enjoy being helpful, and there is quite a lot to gain from being a little exposed. So far, from what I have found, I think a Cota 247 T might be a little rare. I've found quite a few Cotas, but few "T"s. I have also noticed most Cotas from the 1970s are missing the back portion of the red pan under the seat, and few other items that mine still has. I would love to find someone with more experience with this model. But so far, I have not figure out where to look for them. Thanks, Bob

    Thanks guys. Joe, my Cota is a 247 T (Trail). Are you familar with them? It has a longer seat, and passenger pegs. This one has been registered street legal in California since it was new. Overall, still a trials bike however. I had it out today, and it is damn fun. I was thinking the Trials forum would be more interested in modern bikes, but I will my a post there.

    Riding Trials Bike in Trails

    I just picked up a 1974 Montesa Cota 247 that is in great shape for its age. It has a seat, and of all things, it has been registered street legal in California since it was new. Talk about raising some eyebrows when I run into the village and prop it up on the side stand. It is fun to bounce around on the trails, or so I'm told. I actually just acquired it this week. I know of a 2005 Pampera at a dealership they have never been able to sell. They have rolled out front every day, and back into the shop every night for two years. I'm seriously thinking of adding it to my collection. I'm wondering if my Land Cruiser could tow my trailer if I pick up the Pampera and find a way to load all five bikes into it. I have a 10 day trip into the Anza Borega Desert planned for April, and it would be a kick to take the entire arsenal. That would include a 04 BMW 1150 GS, a 05 KTM 640 Adventure, an 07 KTM 450 EXE, the Montesa, and the Pampera. I think that would set me up for anything I could find out there. But quick math says that would be about 1400 lbs of bikes, plus maybe 1500 lbs for the trailer.

    1974 Montesa

    Any suggestions for a forum covering vintage Motesa's? I just acquired a 1974 Cota 247.
  13. I expect delivery of a 2007 450 EXC in the next couple of weeks. This is my first dirt bike since I was about 14 (over 35 years). What is the break in routine? How soon should I do the first oil change? When should the valves be checked? How long should I wait to jet it? Any general advise is welcomed. Thanks, Bob
  14. The list price for the 2007 KTM 450 EXC will be $7995. The $9K I estimated for out the door might be slightly high, but it is in that range.
