'KX4096' was purchased by the vendor in approximately 2008 at an autojumble. It was in basic form, comprising the frame, engine and three-speed gearbox, all together. The vendor found a set of correct strutted Webb forks and either located, or had made, the remaining parts over a period of time. The wheel hubs, brake plates, and oil tank were manufactured. A few parts are incorrect, such as the converted GTP petrol tank, but he reasoned that it could do the job until the correct petrol tank could be located. When completed, in approximately 2010, the owner ran the machine, finding that it had a misfire, which is believed to indicate that the magneto may require attention. However, other matters have occupied his time since, and nothing further has been done. Due to his advancing years, he has now reluctantly decided that he must retire from competition, and the KTT has been consigned to Stafford for sale. The bike will require safety checks and a modicum of re-commissioning prior to use by a new owner. Lubricant is Castrol R40. The machine has benefited from addition of bottom frame rails, which helps to prevent the well-known KTT problem of frame breakage. Also to be noted are the 3-speed gearbox and coil valve springs. Whilst the engine number, KTT343, appears to have the correct fonts, it is possibly not a factory stamping (missing the usual 'No.'), or it is possible that the correct-type crankcases are a later replacement. There are no documents with this machine.
