Penton Steel Tanker

SingleTrackJeff,

I'll be happy to remove that old steel tank remnant thats just "laying around" off your hands.

I'm always needing something for these old bikes.

Let me know what you have.

Thanks, John

I have rode the Dragon and Blue Ridge Pkway a few times but I believe my favorite ride up that way is the Cherahola Skyway. The turns are spread out just enough with positive camber banking that really make them a lot of fun to ride.

Yeah, I was blown away after riding it from Tellico Plains. I agree mo betta than the Dragon, BRP and Blood Mtn (fun wise). The BRP is hard to beat for the vistas.

Have fun up at Tellico on the Dragon, BRP, Cherohola Pkwy, and everything surrounding it. Awesome riding there, I go every spring for a week to drag knees/pegs on the Dragon and then DS through the mountains!

Plan "B" for cutting bars. Buy a $5 metal cutting blade for the miter saw and bam! Bars complete.

I assure you that Inept is NOT lonewolfing it... I am sure he is well taken care of and I wish I was up there with my crew because I know they are having a blast. You and Phil will have fun especially if you love curves like I do. Just remember to watch your speed and crossing double yellow lines....not that you would do any of that stuff.

Check it out, it's cool. It's good to know the history of John Penton and how he got Penton motorcycles started in the U.S., and for current KTM riders to know their heritage.
Just be careful on those things!

Penton Pix

Guys, Those are some very nice classic vintage Penton Pix. I'll try to put some of my own here so everyone can have a good laugh. It's possible others on here have some of those classic photos they would like to share too.

Well the bikes up in Georgia, of course I had to take it to the KTMWorld that is N - of Hotlanta by 35 miles so that was 390 miles one way. Was thinking about letting that dealer over yall's way work on it, but after talking to them and there said hell know, $30.00 cheaper labor rates up there to. The cheaper labor rates wont pay for the gas up there, but got to take a trip and saw a bunch of KTM's I have not seen before like the 990 SMT and that White/Orange RC-8 is BADASS. The manager lived in Destin and said he knows Mossey head and Eglin well. Had a lot of KTM stuff on the walls, but was proud of my self for not buying any thing. Left there and ate at a BBQ place down the road called Slopes or some thing like that had the combo plate ribs,chicken, chopped pork, never head BBQ that had no taste but the bread was good.
left there and went to the other KTMWorld at highland park , I did not get out of there with out buying a few things off the wall. hopping they will have it done by next weekend for Barbers vin. days but with my luck it wont be. I already had all my boxes packed ready to put on the bike. I told the manager if they get it fixed by next Friday I could pick it up and act like a Harley Rider. He asked How's that???
I said - You know Trailer a Running bike to some were down the road from a Event, find a wal-mart parking lot, unload it, rube my gear in the dirt then ride to the event, and then talk Shit about all the Posers that there that trailered there and all the Cage drivers. I was told if the parts ore in stock they will try to have it done.

GPR stabilizer

FYI
Just slapped on a used GPR stabilizer on the katoom.. Very nice. Although I had to service it myself since it was not working just right. I did a complete oil change and bled all the air out using a syringe and some 5w fork oil. Some nasty stuff came out, dont know what the heck the previous owner had in it. Anyway, its really easy and instructions are online. If you all need some help let me know.
It works awesome now, smooth as can be.
No more fighting the groves/tracks in the sand..
