builds using the kawasaki ptwin frames have been done, or are ongoing. nothing new there. the KLR or KTM builds with the ptwin engine are a different kind of bike by intent.
i'm content with my ptwin gravel runners in the stock frame, they work for the type of trip i do, and they're very cheap to build. 10,000 km of gravel road on these bikes so far. i'm going to try to turnkey my next ptwin build for $1000 plus the cost of new tires. we'll see how it goes.
maybe i should join this circus and start another build thread.
