A 1986 KTM MXC500 2 stroke open classer.

I had been looking for one of these bikes in particular for a while and finally came across the right one a couple of months ago and just had it shipped up from California. The bike had been previously stored away for 25 years due the original owner who went MIA; although one ride on this thing and it's easy to see why. The owner I bought it from went all through it to get it running again and performed a few upgrades at the time as well. It is not pristine by any means but has seen very little use. While the HM rules the definition of "wheelie" in Webster, this thing defines the definition of insanity. Starting it is half the experience.

You will put your eye out with that thing. :D

But all seriousness aside, great looking bike and those are a blast to ride. No wear on the front tire at all. :yeah:

Congrats on the new steed, @Austen . I do love me a smoker, and it looks in great shape (esp for a 30yo bike).
