Seriously, whenever I see a supposed "custom" like that, the first thought that goes through my head is that it was laid down on its nose somehow, and the spendy factory bits replaced with Ebay stuff. If the fairing and fairing subframe took a hit, there's also a strong chance that the speedo did also, so the low miles may not be accurate. Not to mention that the KLR sometimes doesn't like to be continually revved into the higher ranges, which is pretty much motard territory.

The fact that the tank has been repainted (rattle can?) and there's a replacement front wheel -- which is, I confess, perhaps the only authentic Motard detail, would make me a little suspicious of the "never dropped" claim. The guy's a dealer. I'm always more comfortable buying from a fellow ADVer.

There are some very nice KLR motard pics posted around here, but I wouldn't rank this among them.
