This drop dead gorgeous 244cc works racer by Bultaco was raced by Ramón Torras in the early 1964 and 1965, right up until his untimely death on another bike at a race in Spain in 1965.
Bultaco retired the 244cc works racer and it eventually found it’s way into the private collection of Australian Barry Smith, from there it made it’s way into the collection of New Zealander Ginger Molloy who restored the bike in the mid-90’s.
