Excuse me? Did you just say a KX 500 and a KTM 350XC-F rolled into one? Yes, that’s correct; Jonny Weisman of TBT Racing Arizona blended both motorcycles together for an incredibly beautiful piece of machinery. Jonny took an old 2002 KX500 engine that he had lying around and mounted it in a 2014 KTM 350XC-F. Both bikes were being un-used in his shop, so he decided to create a 500cc two-stroke that implemented modern day chassis/suspension technology and the KX500/KTM 350XC-F was born. Tons of labor went into Jonny’s project as he was focused on making a clean almost un-modified looking machine. We had the pleasure of riding this unique beast at a local top-secret sand track in Southern California and this is what we came away with.
