How to slow flash when using the bulb setting Minolta X-700?

I'm trying to make something that moves for 5 seconds or less, so I put my minolta on the bulb setting to obtain a long exposure. I would like to be removed from the figure in motion, but a more defined, yet appears at the top. If this makes sense? Therefore, under the operation by firing however many seconds to expose the film, and then rapidly using flash just before the shutter release. I have an automatic flash "shoe attached to the camera body, but my difficulty is that no matter the configuration flash, flash always seems to me right at the beginning of exposure. Is there a way to delay an automatic flash shoe a minolta x-700? And if not, has not any suggestions on how I create my limited material effect? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks:]

Two things make this work for you … a trigger cable, and get the camera flash. What we're trying to do is called second curtain sync, so the flash fires just before closing the shutter. It is not possible with X-700, unless you do it by hand. Use a cable release to keep the shutter open with one hand, and keep the flash on the other hand. Just before release the cable release, fire the flash using the test button. If you keep your hand on the sensor, the flash will still give an automatic exposure.
