Thumbs up stamped in the legs are sure sign of Bultaco. A fair number of Bul and Betor fork parts can be swapped around........

They don't get any more original than that. Complete with the original decals. Replacement original looking decals are available.

So I'm trying to figure out the field in the air filter decal. Is it silver/chrome like, or clear, or maybe even a faded gold?

I've seen this decal on other filters and they could be black with gold lettering, or white with black lettering, and gold with black lettering. So which is it?

Go with the R/H filter in your picture above. I have 2 pairs of these filters NOS in the wrappers. The backing field is faded gold with black lettering. Unfortunately none of the classic transfer offerings matches this, however from personal experience they will make transfers to order.

Good luck

Good one Vic. I have had Classic Transfers make custom stick-ons. The last one they made for me was for the Wasp tank.

Gary, do you have a part number for the tach bracket? I have parts book 5118 but it does not list it.

No part number here. I believe the '64/'65 Spitfire Hornets did not have a tach.

Really, I thought I saw a parts page you listed in the old posts that showed it as item #8. Maybe it was the later parts book.

That would be the parts page for the '66/'67 Hornet. Different than for the '64/'65 Spitfire Hornet. There are a lot of differences between the '64/'65's and the '66/'67's.

Gary - Do you prefer the 64/65s over 66/67s? Curious to know what people think of the different years.

My signature gives it away. With "The Three Tenors" it is a no brainer for me.

None of my machines are show queens. The video is me and the magazine article is me. I keep them in top notch condition. They get started and ridden on a regular basis...weather permitting. They need to be spanked on occasion. But, I don't ride some of them in the mud, especially the Wasp, as it's too rare and valuable to waste it away.

Bring your Hornet to Oregon where the weather is real foul at times to get it dirty.

'66/'67 were chrome filters on the Hornet and Wasp.

So Gary let me just clarify that. For 66, the front and the back plates are chromed as well obviously as the perforated bands?

The '66/'67 air cleaners had black front and backs and chrome perforated bands. The '64/'65 Spitfire Hornets had chrome fronts, backs, and perforated bands.

Next question.
What is the difference between the US (68-6536) and the UK (68-6535) variants of the 6 tab front guard and the one specified for a 66 Hornet 68-6544?
