Description 1985 KTM MXC 500 open class 2 stroke

1985 KTM 500 MXC 5 speed
First year for the 500 as KTM surrendered the 495 in 1984. The king is dead . Long live the king!!
1985 is a very sought after year  / The  lightest production 500cc produced ( 218lbs) delivering  62HP. This is an extremely powerful motorcycle that will require skill to pilot . Super high compression yet pretty easy to start as long as you know the correct technique. Top dead center , kick hard like you mean it and walla Brap Brap ...   These big bore 500's are also remarkably dependable as they do not rev at extremely high RPM's ( 5900 tops ) and there are no power valves to fuss with nor are they needed on these monsters!!
Pure raw open class power. The 500's feels a world scarier than a KTM 540 and 550 because of the shorter stroke and lighter weight. This bike is the MXC version ( 5 speed) and is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition. Does pretty good in the woods too / all you need is 3rd gear ....
Note -- Tank shrouds are original but I opted for the 500 graphic ( from  86 model ) as opposed to the KTM graphic from the 85 model.
Some of the plastics ( all original ) have been cleaned , painted and clear coated so that they were uniform.
Bike has the BING carb which provides very good throttle response and aids in easy starts.
Clutch is super strong / no slippage and the clutch cover / water pump housing do not show any signs of corrosion.. No coolant - or oil leaks present on this bike. On Nov-20-16 at 08:52:29 PST, seller added the following information:

No TITLE .. will be sold with a BOS ...
Note: EBay does not have a data field for "no title" so clear title needs to be entered..
