Firstberg. Perth Australia

Hi all, I picked up this 2007 FE 450 for a steal off an old guy. 90 Km on the clock 3 hours! Practically brand new.
I put more kay's on the thing on my first ride than it's had in the last 7 years! Yes that's the original rear tyre when I got it home.


So far I've fitted 14 / 50 gearing
Radiator guards
Front disc gard
A set of solid handguards
KTM 18-20 adjustable triple clamps in 20mm position
Cut down and modded vtr 1000 sp2 Honda muffler
Homemade speedo bracket
Silicone rad hoses (removed T stat)
1.8 bar radiator cap
2014 KTM front plastics inc home made adaptor brackets




Future mods happening soon will be homemade bashplate.
Homemade alloy fuel tank (slimmer than stock)
New plastics to keep the stockers looking good for resale.
New seat foam and cover.
Some backyard suspension work.

Other than that it'll just be plenty of riding / racing and enjoying being back on a bike again especially a berg, loving it
Thanks from bushmechanic

Looks great. Wonder how many more unused bikes are sitting out there waiting to be discovered.

What an excellent score!

I tried for ages to find an FE450 in Perth with no luck. Congrats

The tank will be a little while as I,ve just started working on the bashplate now. A realistic timeframe for me is to make a start in the next 6 to 8 weeks and keep at it fom there.

As far as finding this beast I just got lucky. Came into some money, punched husaberg into gumtree and there it was. I almost felt sorry for the guy as he parted with it for around $9000 less than what they went for new. As for how many more are out there like this one not a lot I guess. 1 less at least.
