I picked up a 95 KX 500 today in Montgomery, AL. Bike seems to be in great shape, with minor scuffs on the frame and cases. Previous owner added DID dirt stars, and claims to have sent the suspension into Race Tech. Full FMF pipe and silencer, and kx front number plate and fender. As a 22 year old, I've only ridden a 500 one time up and down a dirt road, and that experience has stuck in my memory for years. I'm pumped!

My other bike is a kx 450, so I'm excited to compare the two bikes at the track this weekend! Ride report will follow.

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

May I ask why you have an inflated tube in your bed? :-)

Your guess is as good as mine.. that's my dad's truck. He restores vintage bikes, and maybe he replaced tubes when changing tires on an old junker. Or it could be that sometimes I have a tendency to put air in tubes that I remove to see where the puncture was, and that might be the case here. If it was just a tiny pinhole, it might not let all the air out.

Love seeing the big bore in green. Very nice!


There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

Gawd damn I'd love to throw a leg over one of those bikes again one day. Congrats man. Hope you have a blast on it!


And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

This thread way better than I anticipated. I was thinking a new boring ktm. Not this nostalgic gem!!!

When’s your build thread starting?


Since 1987

Did you buy the bike from Lee? If so it should be a good bike. I was going to buy it but I really don't need another KX5 when I already have my 89 that's super nice.

are you going full team replica? would that be larocco era?


If I'm healthy enough to complain. I shouldn't be complaining.

Drooling. My buddy has a 86 CR500 engine in a 04 CRF 250 frame. I’ve rode it a few times and have fallen in love. Nice bike man!
