you sound comfortable after you land
I am really happy with it.
I also have a 98 Cr500.
The KTM has plenty of power and a bit more forgiving than the thrill ride of the Honda.
Both are keepers for me.
This thing is bloody brilliant once I put a decent pipe on it.
Let's go Old School here. This is a bike My Dad and I built this winter. He did most of the work and it turned out great. These were great woods weapons back in their day. I can remember a local pro winning the overall several times at the harescrambles near us when these were new. I have always wanted one . The frame is yellow due to it being powder coated before we got it.

In its old livery (and natural habitat)
09 ktm 250 xcw. A great do anything bike.
Seeing this post is in the Old's Cool section, I gotta post this pic.
1976 Penton Cross Country 250.
And here is a bit more old school. I have several more to post...but first have to get the pics on photobucket.
This one is a 1972 Penton Berkshire 100 that belongs to a friend of mine. His dad was the original owner - bought it new in 1972 - still has the original sales receipt! This is the very bike my buddy learned to ride on when he was a kid. Full restoration was done in 2011.
close up of engine:
And here is another one of a great friend of mine, known around the Michigan D14 Enduro series as Young Ted. Here he is at age 83, aboard his 1977 Penton GS6 250. He was the prior owner of my 76 Penton (which he bought used in 1977). Ted still competes in various D14 Enduros - did the Jackpine in 2011 in fact. He and I are planning on riding the Michigan Cross Country Cycle trail next year, on our Pentons. A couple years ago he and I rode the entire trail (652 miles in 5 days), him on his Penton the entire time. I had planned on doing the same on my Penton, but a boned head move on my part resulted in me having to use my modern bike the first 3 days of the ride.
And this one is of another friend on his 1978 Yamaha IT175 doing what it was built for:
here's a couple.
07 gg 300 with 2011 plastics.
74 puch 175 - this will most likely be my main ahrma cc bike (i have 4 of them now, but this one seems to run the best..)
too much snow here to take pics of any others... ain't none of them pretty though - the woods takes it's toll.
here's a couple more.
this one is retired :)
1974 puch 125.
bultaco model 67 sherpa s. took some liberties with it. it currently has street tires on it :)
model 134 (200 pursang with husky front end) and another shot of sherpa s, with different junk on it.
and a frontera i traded away last summer. duh.
Subscribed, just love the rejigged Old's Cool format !
Don't fret parting with the Frontera, the new owner includes you in positive thoughts everyday, good karma...
@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!
- 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,
- 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.
nice one. speedy clasen has (or had - he's sold a bunch off) all kindsa neato 80's KTM stuff..
My oldie/goodie. 1974 Benelli Enduro.
My trusty KDX200 and the Shutter Monkey's Gas-Gas 320 Pampera!
