Oh shit ya... http://www.leguidevert.com/_V5/sujet-fo ... 487-0.html Its all french btw.

That 4 stroke to me looks custom, but I could be wrong #-o
Some of the parts dont look like they would belong on a kx/klx from that time, small tank, alum. kickstart, swingarm, reservoir shocks and the plastics.
At any rate it looks pretty cool

Ah ok Bernie , by home built I thought you meant that someone had stuffed a four stroke motor into a two stroke mxer frame my mistake,but yea the tank does looks different,the production klx's did have a beefy looking alum swingarm if I remember right,out of curiousity I'll take a look through some old white bros catalogs I have around somewhere(might take awhile to find)....I always liked the early 82-84 kx's with the numberplate rear fender .

Well, I'm looking through the site and come across the klx pic,well it says it's a klx with a punched out Honda xl350 motor installed(and probably other stuff added too) so Bernie your one off home built description is 100% correct,.... I'll go and sit backwards in the corner of the class :oops: Image

Dudes, I've spent waaaaaaay too many hours cruising that site... :oops:

I'm a serious lover of all-things-green!!! I've got a real thing for the 80s KXs, SRs, etc! If you look at my 450 in the sig pic below, you can see I run a red seat like Jeff Ward's SR250 from 1983...I dig the look sooooo much!

There's a really cool section of old Kawasaki print ads on there too.

Great post, traileater!!!
