Soon as I saw it I thought MC on a Suzuki. Every company could make better looking gear by just copying their old stuff.

Need a set of standard 971s and don’t want to buy new if I don’t have to. Anyone got a set they took off in great shape laying around? Thanks

1985-94 KTMs came with Upside Down WP forks. Some of the riders in Europe used a conventional Marzocchi fork during this period. 95-97 KTMs came with a large Conventional Marzocchi fork (big tube on bottom). The forks on your bike have a 50mm upper tube, ... more »

You got a really clean bike that doesn’t look like it was beat on. But you are just showing us a bunch of pictures of stock KTM parts. Looks like everything besides the seat cover is a stock KTM 125.

Pretty easy for guys in the know to tell the 125 from the 250 because the 250 in 90 had the chain on the left side with the kickstart on the right like a Japanese bike. The 125 stayed the opposite until 1998. All the other markings you’ve described are ... more »

Great thread. Cool to see all the 80 class pics from my era. After a few years of riding around the desert my first time lining up was in the Spring of 89...had just got a brand new leftover 87 YZ 80.

Those are Marzocchi’s off a 97 KTM 250/300 The bike looks stock it’s just interesting to me that it has a pretty rare seat cover

Looks like you have 50mm conventional forks from a 97-99 KTM. You could probably sell those for 3 times what you paid for the bike.

The logo on the front of the seat cover says Tecnosel (Italian seat/sticker company from that era) Also looks like the front end has maybe been swapped out with some mid 90s KTM conventional forks. Post a pic and I can probably identify them. I’ve been

Chesterfield is a cigarette company that was a big sponsor of Italian Motocross teams in the 80s/90s. You can google Farioli KTM Trampas Parker or Bob Moore and see pictures. Evo-mx in the U.K. makes reproduction decal kits as it’s pretty popular for ... more »

Added reply in a thread Would you trade at 1986 CR125 for a 1986 YZ250? 1/2/2019 9:56 AM

It’s all up to you...but I would do it. The CR is surely a faster 86 125...but it would be more interesting and desirable to me to have a matching 86 125/250 set.

I’m definitely not an expert...but I just ran into this exact thing on some old KTM 125 head gaskets. Turns out the one that seemed to be missing the holes was intended to direct water better...to get the cooled water to the hottest area first (exhaust ... more »

Started here, my dad taking me for a ride on my grandpas 79 YZ. Even cooler that we still have that bike and him and I have both been doing some vintage racing on it the last few years.

Good luck....you can do it! To me it's more fun to build a bike like this and not another Honda. I would double check that connecting rod. I have several Cagiva 125's. I know I used that old Yamaha rod for my 84 WMX 125. But in '89 the Cagiva got a longer

Thanks! I'm sure there will be guys who say no way.....not worth it. But obviously I haven't stuck with the 250 because it is a big advantage or makes the most power. I just wanted some feedback on how exaggerated the 250 2 stroke vs 450 would be up ... more »

50mm WPs off a 99 KTM. I ran them for a few years and went back to the stock usd forks earlier this year.

What I find interesting is that these days all kinds of old pictures pop up of American stars riding other brands of bikes. Most of them I think are from Moto Verte tests in France. It’s just funny because you’d never see it today. Glover riding some
