1976 MZ ISDT replica


My heart skipped a beat when I saw this advertised locally for sale, literally ten minutes from home, it’s a 1976 250 mz isdt, [international six day trial] replica, especially at the price, £450! Oh, let me read that again, £4500 yes, really four and a half big ones for a bike that really does look like it’s had a hard life, I mean, a competition bike does look better with a few hard earned scars but really? Just been dragged out of a damp shed and the tyres not even pumped up before trying to sell, is it me or what?

More KTM 790 Duke....


 No major changes on this bike, like I said in the previous post just some gentle massaging, fitted evotech exhaust bracket, axle crash bungs, paddock stand bobbins but the biggest difference was the tail-tidy which really cleans up the rear end a treat. I like the look of the Oberon bar-end mirrors too, it really drops the front end down......
