Bk kester 2015
Over the weekend the BK KESTER event was run in Belgium that included some classes for the older bikes. Joel Smetts was there with 2 x bikes (pictured below). What I'm trying to find out is who owns these bikes as I'd like to understand what specs the bikes are and obtain a set of the radiator shroud graphics. (There is a logo on the graphics but I have no idea who it is)
The Number-9 bike looks pretty much standard save for the SPES exhaust which was an option back then. At a guess its a 92 to 96 model maybe earlier, not 100% sure. It could be the bike that Johan Boonen raced at Farleigh Castle last year given that every where you look there's DT filters logo's and the DT Filters race truck in the back ground which I'm pretty sure is a company owned by Johan Boonen (or) Jacky Martans (They are/where best mates)
The Number-3 bike is a whole different story. It appears to have Talon or Haan hubs, a works 48mm WP front end , Keihen carb and a couple of other trik bits.
I'd also like to know if the rear guard is one of those UFO "generic" yellow guards as it certainly not off anything Husaberg, likewise the front guard.
Note: These pic's were sent to me via e-mail. They have a water mark of "MAATJES MX" but I cant work out who they are to credit them for the pictures.
