Default Ktm frame with a cr500 engine!!

Here's something interesting guys, it's on our local kijiji pages and he combined an 07 ktm 450 with a cr500 motor! Pretty cool and looked like he took his time.

Thanks for sharing.
That is a nice looking bike.
Only thing I question is that the pipe looks lower then the frame. But maybe that is just the way the pictures was taken?

I don't see the point of putting one of the best engines ever in one of the worst handling chassis.
But it sure looks like a well done job.

i did the same thing but in a crf 250 chassis , hat an eric gorr cylinder on for a more even spread of power , only problem was the bike rode me , you have to be very fit to ride one for any amount of time , unfortunatly i was too old and not fit enough so i sold it on .

chassis has little effect on a bike that will spend most of its life riding on the back wheel
