Ex­cit­ing news from Hartwig Ka­ma­rad, di­rec­tor of the Mo­tor­rad Trial Mu­seum in Ohls­dorf, Aus­tria, is that one of the four 320 KTM tri­als bikes built by the fac­tory is now in the mu­seum. Thought lost, it was ac­tu­ally in a barn be­long­ing to a friend of Hartwig’s.

Of the four ma­chines, one went to Ger­man multi trial cham­pion Felix Krahn­stöver, one to Aus­trian trial am­bas­sador and de­vel­oper Walther Luft – both rid­ers us­ing the bikes in the Scot­tish Six Days Trial and the trial World Cham­pi­onship se­ries 1977/8 and the Na­tional Cham­pi­onship with KTM. An­other was for for­mer Zun­dapp de­vel­op­ment en­gi­neer Mr Wieditz and one was for KTM boss Mr Trunk­en­polz (the ‘T’ in KTM).

This is bike no 00004 given to Mr Trunk­en­polz, who in turn gave it to the mu­seum di­rec­tor’s friend as a spe­cial gift. This spe­cial KTM is on dis­play with around 30 other trial ma­chines from around the world in the Trial Mu­seum Ohls­dorf, Wein­bergstrasse 66, Gmunden, Ohls­dorf 4694, Aus­tria.
