I picked up this 99 with the lower frame guards, aluminum sub frame, Black Excel rims on black Kawasaki hubs, IMF Desert tank, BRP top triple, and a vented and ducted front number plate.  It has a sticker on the frame neck that said it was competition only.  Maybe all KX 500's have those.  It looks similar to Destry's 01' KX500

Any ideas from the experts?

Thanks!

I was able to track down the history of this Team Green bike out of So-Cal.

Thanks for all the help!
