Adopted a Oldie but goodie

Just scored an old 1992 KTM 250 Exc off of Craigslist.

Should be a fun winter overhaul. Here is how she arrived at my shop today. She's been a little neglected, but runs great.

The bad news:
- No kickstand
- The owner had no idea how to take care of a bike.
- Didn't know what mixture he ran
- Only rode it and never did any maintenance

The good news:
- He only had it for 6 months and rode it a handful of time
- Ran it very rich (spooge everywhere)
- ALL THE PAPERWORK from the previous owner documenting the top/bottom rebuild were in the tail bag, which he had no idea was there.
- All parts are original

Rob, I have a front Trelleborg you can have. Most of the side studs are gone but the rest are okay.

$600. Will be registered for the street next week.

There's also a 300 for sale in Fall River for $400. The guy says its not running. I'm thinking bad fuel from sitting so long. # is 978-689-5056.

That's what I was thinking. That 200 was nice. I wish I bought it.

I got the 450 all shined up purdy and all though. We had a good ride on Sunday. It had been far too long.

It doesn't look like I'm going to the Snow Run, but I could be up for some lake ike riding. If anyone is interested in some tailgating and general goofing around on a lake somewhere, let me know. By this weekend, all the ice should be good to go. I was thinking Webster Lake, but Coventry, Gardner or Lake Pocotopaug would be options too.

Be careful. Webster Lake is in MA and would require the MA ORV sticker on your bike.

I went and got those studded tires. They're in better shape than I thought they were. I'd use them myself if I didn't hate freezing my ass off.
