You know I would not own it if it was not somewhat tricked, and cheap. lol...

Got a deal on a 97 KTM 50sx Jr (Morini "S5-T" Motor). The guy just did not have the time or knowledge to work on it. So I got a killer deal on it. Luckily I have had some time to do my research and know where to get all the parts for that it will need to be 100%.


All chromed chassis front to back and top to bottom. I have some sweet plans for this thing.
I already started getting it together. Should not be long.







Started with a bucket-o-parts. Got it down to a box. :thumbsup:

Thanks man. It really is a cool little bike. I got most of the motor put in. Just waiting on some gaskets for the side cover and carb. Fixed all the little things on it already. Plus upgraded the chain, grips, and filter.

Yes, first figure out what motor you have under Model Info, then look under parts.

Here is the link

Thanks man. The guy I got it from had it chromed. He was getting ready to paint it. Looks real nice in person. He was using it as a pit bike for him. He just did not know how to work on it, and low on funds. So he could not afford to get ti fixed. It had a heavy duty centrifugal springs in the clutch. I swapped out the lower RPM springs for the kid. Once he gets bigger, I might swap it back, and add some power to it. LOL...

its nice i like the chrome but it would be a pain in dirt. i thought ktm was cutting edge. air cooling and drum brakes on a 97 is kinda weird

Chrome is easy, just wash it off. This is a Jr 50sx, not the Pro or Sr model. That was not really standerd until 01 and up unless you got a higher end model.

Got around to finishing it up. I ran into a few issues with the clutch, but I think I got it worked out. I will find out tomorrow. It is too loud to drive it around tonight. Still need to fab up a silencer.

Shitty celly pic, Better pics coming tomorrow.

Thanks for the props guys. I have another pipe for it, but it has plenty of power for him to learn on as is. By the time he gets this down, I will be selling it for something bigger. I know I will make WAY more than what I have in it. I love finding deals that are DIY.
