Dear brother Adnan,  
I don't have Bokhari in my custody right now and cannot mention the required reference. However, kindly go through the Shwareh (plural of Sharh) of Bokhari and check the required references as the Hadith in question has been discussed and explained in detail there :  
Fathal Bari, volume 6, page 247  
Badrud Din Ayini, volume 15, page 249  
Qastalaani, volume 5, page 280  
I had no way but to take the above from Allama Habibur Rahman Siddiqi Kandahlvi's famous book "Mazhabi Dastaanen aur unki Haqiqat".  
This Hadith is well known and is mentioned not only in Bokhari, but in Sahih Muslim, Sanan Nisaai and several other famous Mohaddisin's books. Sorry, we don't have time to sift through these books.  
God bless you.

Here are the link and the hadiths from Bukhari.  
Volume 4, Book 55, Number 577:  
Narrated Abu Huraira:  
Allah's Apostle said, "Abraham did not tell a lie except on three occasions."  
Volume 4, Book 55, Number 578:  
Narrated Abu Huraira:  
Abraham did not tell a lie except on three occasion. Twice for the Sake of Allah when he said, "I am sick," and he said, "(I have not done this but) the big idol has done it." The (third was) that while Abraham and Sarah (his wife) were going (on a journey) they passed by (the territory of) a tyrant. Someone said to the tyrant, "This man (i.e. Abraham) is accompanied by a very charming lady." So, he sent for Abraham and asked him about Sarah saying, "Who is this lady?" Abraham said, "She is my sister." Abraham went to Sarah and said, "O Sarah! There are no believers on the surface of the earth except you and I. This man asked me about you and I have told him that you are my sister, so don't contradict my statement." The tyrant then called Sarah and when she went to him, he tried to take hold of her with his hand, but (his hand got stiff and) he was confounded. He asked Sarah. "Pray to Allah for me, and I shall not harm you." So Sarah asked Allah to cure him and he got cured. He tried to take hold of her for the second time, but (his hand got as stiff as or stiffer than before and) was more confounded. He again requested Sarah, "Pray to Allah for me, and I will not harm you." Sarah asked Allah again and he became alright. He then called one of his guards (who had brought her) and said, "You have not brought me a human being but have brought me a devil." The tyrant then gave Hajar as a girl-servant to Sarah. Sarah came back (to Abraham) while he was praying. Abraham, gesturing with his hand, asked, "What has happened?" She replied, "Allah has spoiled the evil plot of the infidel (or immoral person) and gave me Hajar for service." (Abu Huraira then addressed his listeners saying, "That (Hajar) was your mother, O Bani Ma-is-Sama (i.e. the Arabs, the descendants of Ishmael, Hajar's son)."

salaam,a friend sent me this mail :  
Could the Prophet Ibrahim tell a lie ?  
62. They said, "Art thou the one that did this with our gods, O Abraham?"  
63. He said: "Nay, this was done by - this is their biggest one! ask them, if they can speak intelligently!"  
Sunni translation Yusuf Ali Surat Anbiaa ,ayaa 62-63  
Shia translation Shakir :  
[21.62] They said: Have you done this to our gods, O Ibrahim?  
[21.63] He said: Surely (some doer) has done it; the chief of them is this, therefore ask them, if they can speak.  
before we analyse the ayaa,we should keep in mind what the Koran tells us about Syedana Ibraham :  
19:41Also mention in the Book (the story of) Abraham. Indeed, he was a man of Truth, a Prophet.  
Most of the Muslims have come to accept that S Ibrahim used to tell lies. They believe that according to records, he told lies in three major occasions! They gather false Hadith to support their ignorant claims, they gather endorsement by contemporary scholars who also think S Ibrahim told lies. Most Muslims accept the pronouncement of these scholars on its face value and never question if such a great prophet could ever do such a crime. We know the incidence of Idol breaking by prophet Ibrahim. We have heard stories of how he broke the idols with an axe and how he placed the axe on the shoulder of a big idol. Then when he was questioned, how he told the audience that he did not break the idols, rather the big idol broke the smaller ones!  
3:161 No prophet could (ever) act dishonestly if any person acts dishonestly he shall, on the Day of judgement, restore what he misappropriated..... (Yusuf Ali's translation)  
The aya :  
قالوا ءانت فعلت هذا بالهتنا يا ابراهيم  
قال بل فعله كبيرهم هذا فسالوهم ان كانوا ينطقون  
Qala: He said  
Bal: But, of course, by all means, indeed, rather  
F'alahu: (passive participle) someone did it  
Kabiruhum: The big one of them  
Haza: This  
F'asaalu hum: Ask them, question them  
In: If  
Kaanu yantiqun: They can speak, they can talk,  
It is important to note that there is a small punctuation mark signifying pause (waqf) in the sentence right after 'Qaala bal f'aalahu'. According to Arabic grammar, the meaning of the punctuation (waqf) is much like comma (,) usage in English. This sign alone or in combination of circle or other word means a very brief pause. The reader may pause here briefly, but is recommended to continue with the sentence.Moreover, if Hz Ibrahim lied and say that the Biggest idol did it ,it would be F'salaluhu-singular where we are talking about only one idol,statue ,In this verse ,the plural F'asalalu hum (Ask THEM)is used -  
the audience: 21:65 "You Know That They do not speak.",(you are telling us to ask the broken idols even though u know (and we know)they dont speak...)  
The word BAL is used to continue the previous sentence /claim. ie its an extension or emphasis of the previous sentence. Surat Anbia No. 5:  
Bal qalo  
“Bal ,” they , “Muddled dreams! Bal, he has but invented it! Bal , he is but a poet! Let him then bring us a miracle (as we have heard), like the ones that were given to prophets of old!”  
Similary the word Bal is used in 21:62-63  
HAve you done it ?  
(Qala (he said ) ),BAL,()Fa'alahu ,someone has done it,some (doer) someone with the abilityto do it ,some one who dont prostrate to them ,someone who is not afraid of them , has done it .....  
Why did they ask S Ibraheem ? Because :  
“And by God, I have planned to deal with your idols when you turn back and leave the temple”.  
From this aya we can see Hz Ibrahim told them what he was going to dowith their idols BEFORE he destroyed them ,thts why they asked him :  
They said, “Who has done this to our gods? He must indeed be of the wrongdoers.”  
Some said, “We heard a youth talking about them; he is called Abraham.”  
Syedana Ibrahim didnt lie and tried to "cover up " what he did,because he was "caught" range hath.  
In the Arabic verse 21:63 there is no word that would mean "No"/ . So how on earth these commentators found this negation? What are they trying to justify? The verse does not say Ibrahim blamed the biggest idol. If he said "No" - that is a lie, if he said the biggest idol broke it, that is another lie. So it is a lie upon a lie. Some commentators made him lie once, some twice. But all of them made him guilty of several other offences in addition to telling lies.His reply was very tactful,he said :  
21:63 Abraham grabbed the opportunity of driving home the point, “Whoever did it, did it. This is their chief. Ask them if they speak.” translation by Dr Shabbir  
""This is their chief " is a new sentence after Fa'lahu,and Abraham was called because the people identified him as the same person who used to talk against the idols. The priests then took the position of the court, as otherwise their failure to protect these idols was a very serious allegation on them.They told Abraham, "The allegation against you is that you have done this to our gods. Now what do you have to say in your defense?”  
For Abraham the time had come to achieve the purpose for which he had done all this. If he had given a simple reply like: "Why are you behaving so innocently in asking me all this. Had I not forewarned you how I was going to deal with your deities?” This would surely have aroused people's feelings and the truth would not have manifested itself.) Abraham tried to make them just reflect over it. You believe that your deities possess lots of powers to fulfill the wishes of their followers and destroy their enemies. In your opinion the powers of the biggest one are unlimited. Now all this has happened in his presence. Why did he not stop the one who has done this by employing his might and saving all the other deities from destruction?"  
On hearing this reply there was complete silence. Then Abraham addressed the priests and said: “You used to tell people that these deities have the knowledge of the unseen and know everything. Whenever someone comes to ask you about anything, you assure him that you would reply after asking the deities. Then you come back with a reply pretending that the deities had said so.  
Now if you are true in your assertion why don't you ask them directly instead of asking me about who had done this mischief unto them?" (37:88-98)(Explaination by the great scholar Ghulam Ahmed Parwez,detailed grammar by Dr Qamaruzmans article "Abraham se mansoob jhoot" and translation by Dr Shabbir,thank you so much for your time and efforts.)
