You have to admit they are pretty rare machines and imported in very small numbers.

Try the MCC boys yet? They'er KTM dealers and may be able to help.

Nothing on their site - It was my 3rd site behind Corse Wisc and Cycletrader - I am now considering a Husky

Their on ebay at least once a month, a ktm supermoto (newer 625smc? I think) or Suzuki DRZ400sm has better suspension and less weight for about the same price used. I was looking at Duke's for a while and would also see em on cycletrader from time to time, my buddy who owns a shop said to stick with the other two formentioned. Just my .02

If it was meant to be, I'll find one - If not, I guess I could always pay bills - Geez
