    Ever since I was a kid, I knew, or thought it was Konrief Trunkenpultse Motoradier. It is/was imprinted in my mind.
    I did not know the Mattighofen bit. Can you shed some light on this?

    Hans Trunkenpolz was an engineer that stated KTM as a metalworking shop in Mattigofen Austria, named Kraftfahrzeug Trunkenpolz Mattighofen. In 55 Ernst Kronreif became a major share holder and changed the name to Kronreif Trunkenpolz Mattighofen. in 1960 the company name was change to Kraftrader Trunkenpolz Mattighofen and thats how we get KTM

    is what I was familiar with. My first KTM was actually my brothers '77 250. I was racing XR-75's in the desert but would practice on my brothers 250. Left side kick in those days for a kid that was 80lbs racing minis was hell. Couldn't reach the ground.
