Humble Beginnings.......

This 2004 KTM 950 has endured some hardship by the previous owner. The owner decided that he was going to rebuild the engine, and improve a few things along the way. His plans, according to some family members, was to get the bike setup for a cross country expedition sort of ride. Unfortunately, for him, he began to have relationship issues with his girlfriend.

Some of the upgrades for this bike will be:
