I like steak and I like chocolate but I don't necessarily like chocolate on my steak. I was browsing the web page for Hugh's Bultaco (now known as Bultaco Motorcycles) and ran across a photo that intrigued me but left me with oddly mixed feelings. I'm an old Bultaco rider and fan of the marque and also a bit of an Indian Motorcycle fan 'cause my dear old dad was an Indian dealer waaay back when. Absolutely nothing beats a late model Indian Chief for classic motorcycle style. When I saw Dave Stands' Bultaco/Indian whatever-it-is I was really conflicted. I like both brands; the bike Dave built looks sort of cool and the workmanship appears first rate but I'm not sure about mixing the two utterly opposite brands or the wailing 2-stroke Bultaco engine with the classic Indian look. I'll say one thing for sure though, I'll bet it's fast and a hoot to ride so maybe that's all that counts.
