    But the frame and engine should match, but it may not be a "hill you're willing to die 0n".

    It crossed my mind. You mean find a good registered frame and piece it together?

    OK .. I was confused. I thought you meant you could NOT register a salvaged motorcycle in Ontario. That being their theft deterent.
    .
    I think a parted out 701 frame may be easier to find than a unicorn.
    If you need a new frame I think you have to cut out the frame serial, send it to KTM and they return a frame with THAT serial #.
    In Manitoba I think there is a "custom" designation , but prob a few hoops to jump through to confirm legit.

    We're on the same page. But indeed, I think you're right about finding a non branded 701 frame. Oh well. I shouldn't be window shopping anyway

    Hey Guntar....South Pembina Smitty's pretty much anytime is ok for me. Maybe we could get a group of guys together to shoot the breeze over a coffee or beer. I'm open weekdays and week nights except for Wednesday night.

    Tuesdays and Wednesdays are a bit tough, but with some warning I can slunk out other days. Any excuse for coffee....or beer. And dreams.

    Took advantage of the break in the weather yesterday. Gave me a chance to try out my new Texas tire.

    Forecast is for 4C on Sunday !

    7:00 would be fine. I might be a touch later, but no reason why people couldn't get their sooner. Casual evening of moto talk :) No worries hope to see many of you there.
