Who isn’t intrigued by the good old days? The KTM 250cc 1981 edition was the fastest stock dirt bike built to many at the time. My dad used to own and race one in the early 80’s and can confirm it was a beast. A good reason for me to replicate this iconic bike in honour of my dad’s career and the path that it lead us to. A cool extra is that it resembles the Dutch colours like no other which makes it a perfect build for this years Red Bull UCI Pumptrack World Championships in Lisbon, Portugal. With a couple special paint features I got to give it my own little twist as well.
It is not just a regular BMX build. I will be racing an OS20 (22’’) BMX in a regular 20 inch XXXL HSX
