................I had one just like this. My first KTM.
Head to Head... My '89 CR250Re (grassroots enduro modded) vs a genuine S.p.A. '94 CRE260 ISDE weapon.
Thought you folks might enjoy a few pix.
So like relatives when they hear you have money, the CRE's keep showing up.
In this pic we have added a '93 CRE 260. And on top of that, I know where there is a '97 CRE with the spar frame that I will try to get for a final picture.
'94, '93, '89(poser)
Good stuff right there
Claptrap taco that kept-up with the traffic. From the 1970's...
I also love the older KTM's, just found this 01 380 MXC in SoCal. Original owner with everything from day one. The dealer/KTM were offering an additional set of tires and a FMF Fatty pipe and polished KTM silencer in 2001 to get people to buy the MXC since all the EXC's were gone by June when he bought this one.
Interesting, can you tell us a little about it please?
It's an abomination of sorts, no doubt. The bike is a model 84 Lobito Mk V, while the engine (Amal 36mm), exhaust and rear wheel assembly was from a 106 Pursang Astro. Front wheel was purchased used, from a Metralla Mk2 or El Tigre. The ignition (FESMA with battery) is from a model 81 El Montadero, which also utilized the dual plug arrangement. Front fender is from a Sherpa T and the rear fender is stock. Chainguard (plastic) is from a later model Alpina, I believe. Weighing less than 240 pounds (full tank) and with a 39t rear sprocket, it offered surprising performance.
Not surprising at all, I bet it was a wheelie machine too..
With only a 52" (1320.8 mm) wheelbase, that was an issue.
Do you know John Somerville?
I met him last year at a Bultaco rally near Bathurst. Very nice fellow, he'd read about my Metralla in air-cooled form and was quite interested in it so we had a couple of long chats about Bul engines. Unfortunately I had a fairly spectacular spill from my Sherpa onto some rocks that resulted in a busted rib and some bark knocked off here and there, but still a good weekend.
Sorry to hear about your dismount, John. "Some bark knocked off"... that's a good one. Hopefully, you're feeling better nowadays.
I do have John Sommerville's book; Bultaco, Mi Obsession. It's a fantastic reference and how-to for any Metralla owner.
I used to work next the Bryant Bros that raced Metrallas at Bathurst, cool guys :)
