Fifty years ago, in 1969, Bultaco presented the TSS 350 Model 29, a simple road-racing bike by design, which was well-received due to its light weight and fantastic stability.

This TSS was a larger evolution of the famous Bultaco TSS 125 and 250 that were economical and effective weapons in national championships all over the world in the 1960s and 1970s.

They also provided the springboard to compete in the world championship for international pilots like Dan Shorey, Tommy Robb, Barry Sheene, Luigi Taveri, Eugenio Lazzarini, Jean-Pierre Beltoise, Jack Findlay, Kevin Cass and Barry Smith, to name a few, but in the hands of Ginger Malloy the 350 obtained its best results.
