Will do, so... where did you pick up your old Husaberg? We were looking at these online the other day, but a used one is pretty hard to come by..

I got it new in Dallas back in 2012 before KTM bought them . I traded my FE570 enduro for the TE 300. I wanted to start racing hare scrambles and I thought the 570 might be few more cc's than what I needed unless the courses were 100 miles long and straight uphill. The 300 is the most user friendly dirt bike I have ever ridden. It never stalls and climbs hills like a tractor. You can still get one, they just call it a KTM EXC 300 or Husqvarna TE300. If you are looking for a used 300 Byrdman is almost done rebuilding his KTM 300 which means it will be for sale soon. That's how he rolls. Don't be afraid to low ball his either. He loves that .

Duly noted. The XC-W is the equivalent of the TE300. The XC is supposed to be a crossover bike that can do mx and enduros. I probably should have remembered that since I owned one once. Thanks for reminding me. .

Get some new grips you cheap . You already replaced everything else. Looks like a squirrel has been chewing on those.

looks great, what color of orange did you go with?

I dropped off a swing arm, brake caliper and the caliper carrier to my 250sx today for Gloss black and a shade of orange I hope is close enough to work. Plan to do the frame soon too.
