@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.

This is the only pic I have.

1986 Husqvarna 400 WR which I got around 1987. (period WP USD forks fitted in 1990 )
It won the 86 NZ Enduro championship with the original owner.

Pretty much one of the last 'real Huskys before Cagiva took over.

After my first ride in the woods behind my house today:

Guy in my dual sport club. I beat the snot out of it yesterday on some nasty muddy trails. All the power is going to take some getting used to, I had trouble keeping the front wheel on the ground :).

Here's mine. 1984 KDX200:



These are great bikes. I used to race an '85 back in the day. One of the best trail bikes ever.

Heres my old beater. 74 DT250 with a few trick parts. Been doing a little vintage mx with it. I reallt wish there were some vintage enduros around here, that seems to be what the bike does best.

where you located? there's usually some kinda vintage cc/enduro pretty much everywhere in the us. maybe only 1 or 2 a year, but there's usually something... and many harescramble series have a bomber/vintage class..
