I might be trading my xr100 for an 87 ktm 125. I can't seem to find any info on them anywhere, where they any good? Also how hard is it to find parts for them?

There was not to many brought into the USA in 1987, so it will be very hard to find the parts for. I may be interested in buying it from you however, since I am collecting all the 87 125cc bikes and this is one I don't have, but only if it's the mx model (you can tell by the grab bar over the rear fender).

They're sweet looking bikes that's for sure.

They are rare but parts really aren't a problem if you want to restore one. There is a guy in Austria with a great website for vintage KTM parts. Plastic might be hard but I believe DC makes most the stuff. KTM used this basic engine design until 1997 before they finally put the chain on the left side and moved the kickstarter to the right in '98. Hard parts shouldn't be a problem at all. I restored a '95 KTM 125 and found a nearly new Dynoport pipe for it on ebay for 35 bucks!

MXM..are you going to do a Cagiva too? Pretty awesome project you've got going on. Have you seen the Italian guy who built all 8 brands of 1985 500's??

Thanks guys. I think I am going to get it, just waiting for the guy to put the top end kit in it. He said he put a new crank in it also and rebuilt the suspension and set it up for a 220lb rider. Its a pretty good deal considering that I'm trading him an xr100 for it.

And yes I do believe that it is an mx model.

I had one of these. Great mx bike, not so good off road bike.

I am a little late to the party on your post but if you still have this ktm 125 and need parts let me know. I have 2 spare 87 ktm 125 engines, extra cylinder, head and carb and probably some other stuff
