Petrolicious Gilles Escuyer is something of a Bultaco enthusiast. The name of the Barcelona-based motorcycle manufacturer was revived a few years ago with an eye toward electric power, but as Gilles and his friends prove, the old two-stroke models won’t soon be forgotten. The model featured in today’s film is one of Gilles’ favorites from his collection—a 1967 Metralla 250 Mk2—and it was among the fastest bikes of its time in addition to being the first Spanish machine to compete at the famed Isle of Man TT. In other words, it’s a historically significant motorcycle, and though it’s been carefully restored it still gets its bouts of exercise in the French countryside near the city of Reims.
