KTM LC8 – Spirit of the seventies

KTM LC8 – Spirit of the seventies

Kevin from Spirit of the Seventies has owned quite a few KTM’s in his time including a 950 SMR, 990 SM and a 990 SDR so he knows a thing or two about KTM’s. I was chatting to him a few times over the last few weeks about a design he was working on for a client and he sent me a few Renders to share. I thought the round headlight looked a little too static so he tried one with a flat front mask which I think looks brilliant. Anyway, check em out below.

    oh man one of the better looking render designs, the 2nd one i think does it for me, especially if that tank is brushed alloy

    FAKE DUCATI LOOL.

      Real trellis-framed, European-built V-twin… Like a Ducati, but without the flaking engine paint & dodgy electrics. (I currently own 2 Ducatis, and previously owned 2 Superdukes, so I speak from experience) ;)

    This is the most exciting modern cafe custom project I've seen for a long while. The guys simply have to build it.

    Gregg's Customs did a front fairing/headlight like these on an R1 and it looks super cool. 2nd rendering from the top will be great

    Reeeaallly beautiful bikes guys, Ktm should produce right now!

  13. Conrad Brookman 9 years ago

    Hope the client likes the renders, because I want to see this bike built!
