Can you indentify this Motard?

A friend of mine took this photo of an interesting looking motard at Loudon over the weekend. The guy said he'd built it himself, but I was wondering what he might have started out with. Thanks.

I think I talked to that guy a few years back. CR500 or something in there. He was developing the software for the ignition, and maybe fuel injection. Fuzzy memory...

Looks like an old 500 KTM.

The frame looks very close to an EXC, the swing a has me stuffed, but it is a PDS setup, so that limits the choices (Edit, looks like a post 03 EXC swing arm), engines chain is on the wrong side for a newer KTM two stroke though (Edit, the old 500 looks to have the chain on the right)...

I'm going to say custom job made from several different bikes...

Thats a modified 550 in a more current KTM PDS frame. Its probably around a 94-96 550 engine. The logos have been shaved, but the cylinder reed intake gives it away.
