XR 400 Question

I just bought a 1996 XR400 for a song. The bike looks as if it has less than 500 miles on it.

I need help in identifying this slip on... It says FMF on the side and Supertrapp on the back. I would like to by parts for it.

I have looked all over for info and can't seem to find any.

It is a Supertrapp. I had a '97 that I should never have sold.

Thanks.

I picked it from CL. According to the Honda dealer it has OEM tires. It was last registered in 1998. I appears to have sat, sat and sat for years. The forks seals are shot and I suspect the valve guide seals need to be replaced.

Compression is good (seat of the pants), and the rear shock doesn't leak. It starts first kick, (mostly). I plan on doing minimum amount of work to it and the riding it like it should have been ridden all these years!
