left over 13 Husky WR 300-any good?

hi there I have a line on a new one for a reasonable price. however I could also purchase a used 300KTM (older). what about these huskys? are they reliable, do they turn good, suspension, etc? Any known issues? I realize parts availablilty at some point will become challenging but would imagine for several years it shouldnt be a problem.

what say you all????

Decent bike, old design. I know you'll get different parts advice but my 1999 WR125 is gone cause we couldn't get clutch baskets or inners and no idea when if ever they'd be available again... The 125 engine in my bike was in production till the end BTW.

And, value used is near zero. Hardest bikes I've ever sold have been my 5 Huskys. Terrible even when they were in production and current.

The bike itself is quite good. Support from KTM for it is likely to be weak at best as the '13 is still the left over italian husky. I think it's the same basic engine they had throughout the 1990s, which was bombproof. I raced a '1995 for years and was really impressed with it.
