    So...I picked this up the other day. Scared to bust up the plastic, but I want to ride it! Runs perfect, 100% original. Even the tires. PO says the odo is correct at 98 miles. Its one of the 133 produced. Does anyone know what plastic parts will fit it? All of the common sources of body work dont go back to 1997. I saw some really nice graphics from Ridepg.com that I want to use.

    Looks like KTM's (albeit) late response to the KDX 200, back when the Kawi dominated to 200cc 2-stroke class in the enduros. I am with you in that it'd be nice to preserve the OEM plastic for (whatever) value it may have. Good luck on that one.

    After you're done breaking it in, I am sure you'll love the ride. Those small bike 2-strokes are a blast in the tight woods. Almost the perfect combo IMO. :nod

    FYI: Orange Crush is for the LC8 v-twins only. Asked mods to move to thumpers or two-strokes.

    Local dealer had one of those bikes for sale for ever, they claimed it was rare (which 133 sounds like) but no idea if there is really any collectible market for it, my guy says no. Still, I'd for sure protect the plastics like you plan to, I'd have thought standard plastics for that model year (frame should show year) would fit but 2-stroke forum over at ktmtalk might be best way to get fast answer.

    How about a little RESPECT for a bike that without its lineage , development & love from John, Jack & Jeff Penton
    there would be no LC8's & KTM would would still be making bicycles.

    Please, dear god for all that is Orange, do not go bouncing that bike off trees.

    If you need one to ride, sell it. You'll make a healthy profit to someone who cares about a bike with lineage and history.

    x1,000,000,000.

    I had a 75 Jackpiner also. It was totally clapped out and I was too young to realize what hell I had stumbled into. Still, there was something special about it.

    There is something special about that bike in that picture too. Keep it.

    You are an idiot if you ride that thing in the bush.

    It is a rare old girl, do not destroy it.

    Who was the PO?

    Because if it was owned by a younger guy named Robbie a year or so ago, you have one incredibly special bike there. Even more so than the rest of the incredibly special bikes.

    Hey Cody!
    Im the second owner. PO was Garey from VA. He bought from JT Motorsports in Frederick MD new in 97.
    I ran across it and have always liked the baby blue. Funny thing is I have 2 blue KTMs now. Im not sure what I want to do with it yet. Maybe sell it, maybe trade it for a newer 200EXC.

    Personally, I wouldn't even start it. KTM will come looking for it someday. :wink:

    Please please do not ride that bike. it is basically the prototype for the 98 200MXC. I have a 98. yes there where only 133 of them sent over here. very few remain. all of the parts on a 98 will fit it. I think 99 where also the same. the motors are the same up into the 2000s the forks changed to USD in 2000. if you are going to ride it find someone that wants it for what it is and go buy a newer 200. I would buy it from you right now if i had the cash to offer you. Actully PM me what it would take to make you part with it.

    I also think you could get the blue plastic for the 98s.

    I almost never say this but please don't ride that bike. There's. Plenty of nice common trail bike out there. This crosses the line of just too dammed rare. And this from a guy who's hacked up many a low mile classic. 2 cents.

    Buying the Blue plastic, you have to have one of those bikes, they want the serial numbers and your certificate :norton

    My buddy picked one of those up recently not knowing what it was and sure enough broke the front fender in half as he went into a tree.... Anyone ever get plastics for one before? Its not as nice as that one but its in pretty darn good shape. If he can get it fixed he is going to sell it for sure and get one for riding.

    I was thinking that TM front fender might be close but i cant even find where to get one of those..

    Any KTM dealer should be able to get you one with the proper vin#, however many dealer personnel don't have a clue.
    I would call Munn Racing, talk to Chip or Dan.
