Looks like it has quite a few hours on it from all the anodizing worn off the edge of the wheels. Looks pretty nice though and you just have to love the molded in KTM graphics that never wear off. Tell us what you find when you tear it apart.

Those black wheels scratch easily. I have a line around my rear wheel from where a stick got caught in it.

ya i hate the black rims, that's really the only thing i dont like about the bike, i will likely either relace them with silver or get a silver wheelset

it feels so much more i guess i could say "factory" than the jap bikes

and also it feels lighter just by pushing it around than my cr does

lol it was ridden by a beginner who got the bike last year, so i'm not surprised that there's a #5 on it

and its disconnected from the reservoir which is why its hanging

$1300? What a steal! I've always felt that KTM was the Cadillac of moto, expensive but they have that "Factory" look and feel, especially now. Great bikes, would love to get my hands on a 250sx

anybody know a good place to get the frame powder coated in texas? munn quoted me 400$, and that was for a bare frame, it is 600 to have them take it apart. seemed pretty steep to me

Very nice looking ride! Good find. I rode an o9 150 and loved the thing. I would very much like to get one.

Nice bike! I want to see the final results once you've rebuilt it to. The last generation of KTMs (07 - 10) were actually very solid bikes. Good handling, strong motors, respectable suspension etc. Should be a great bike to have once she's up and running again.
