@stainlesscycle, your Bul's are great, very cool bikes!

Something different, here a KTM 500cc Sixdays, not an MX model!

The bike is street legal and has a road registration, there are some differences to the MX model,
first it has "only" 50 hp which is more than enough for me!

Differences are:

- exhaust system, (sixdays type),
- the cylinder with an iron sleeve and the piston with a non standard diameter, (90mm instead of 89mm),
actually 90,17mm as the sleeve needed a rebore.
- different airbox and airbox cover,
- five speed gear box,

another addition:

- extra rotor weight fittet to SEM rotor, with additional 16 Oz,

The rebuild isn't finished yet, as expecially the contemporary electrical parts are difficult to get, (instead of the crappy bicycle speedo I will mount a trail tech unit). The decals for the 1989 are not avaialble more, (after I found some original ones, (many thank's to Helmut Clasen in Ontario), I redrew them and redraw the missing ones with CAD and these where custom printed).

This project is now going on 2 years, may be I will have the bike finished end of this year, may be first next year, ... it's a passion.
