Unique to the United States, the Astro is a vintage motocross bike conceived to compete at dirt ovals at every small town fairground. Derived from the Pursang motocross model, the Bultaco Astro had a higher output motor, no front brake, shifter and rear brake pedal on both the left and right and a variable wheel base set by special rear wheel adjusters. The name comes from the Houston Astrodome, where this classic motorcycle model had much success.
