Need some background here. What size guy is he? What range of rider is he? Maintenance schedule? What size cliff did he jump off of?

In the 3rd pic, it looks like there are some big rust marks along the break line.

Good catch. Looks like this has been cracked for some time and it finally let loose. Even the interior of the tubing has some serious surface rust. Even still, that is a huge amount of force to tear the steel like that.

Probably fell out of the back of a truck then run over by another car.

But, this will get some haters out so flame on.

Remember that thread where someone asked how KTMs manage to be so light?

Massive amount of corrosion in that frame.

Steel rusts, it’s hard to stop that on the unfinished inside

just because of a litle bit of paint, and they all jump on the bashing of ktm, as if they had any own brand to support....

Hey Rileymx,

Ouch. Does anyone know if they X-ray the frame components at the factory before assembly to look for structural defects?

|

Steel frames need weep holes to breathe and help prevent moisture build up inside the tubing. Downside is, weep holes also let a lot of moisture in the frame tubing. Being an enduro bike, i would assume the bike sees a lot of water holes and takes on a lot of water when ridden. Its drains out for the most part, but oxidation happens regardless. That sucks, just sheared that frame in half like it was paper.

There must be 80 lbs of air in those back tires. And God save us all if one of them fall over on that thing. The earth would be knocked off its axis.

Wonder what they drilled so hard to gouge the steel frame and stretch it until the paint cracked like this. Damn shame people don't look for things like this that are glaringly obvious when cleaning a bike. Been that way long enough to develop a good amount of rust on the cracked and gouged surfaces.

Billy and Benny, the McGuire twins. Weighed over 700 lbs. each. One lived to be 30 or so, the other amazingly made it into his 50's.

They also rode Z50's in some photos as well.

Proving Honda's CT70's are indestructible.

Dirt bikes are not indestructible, but they do require maintenance. Frame rust aside, look at the rust on the chain...

I am willing to bet that linkage is frozen solid at one of the points.
