Funny thing is, my MT3 which was supposed to come with the curved forks shown in brochure actually came with straight reynolds forks like MT4 but slightly heavier, I'll find a pic.....

Here... MT3 Straight forks!

I think the guys in the factory were not paying attention.

Cheers,

Chaser.

The straight blade fork's are Reynolds Mang -Moly ones, whereas the bent ones are generic Spinners. - Some MT-3s were sold with the nicer 'Dyna-Max' ones... You're a lucky boy Chaser! :D

Hmmm, Those forks dont look original to me. The shoulder looks flat and the curve not steep enough for a dyna. Id bet there replacement, but are deffo not dyna. Whats the sticker on the blade? Its an MT4 alright!

Just collected one of these. Don't think it's fully original but it's defo a dyna-tech/m-traxs. Full XTR + USE content but think it was built from the frame up bitd.

Will add pictures soon but for the record it seems to have Ti main frame and chain stays, cro-mo seat stays and 1 1/8th head set. Is yellow now but looks like the frame and Rock Shox forks were red at some point. :?

I'd be very interested to see this. I'm assuming it's the one which was on ebay recently. Although I wasn't bidding, out of curiosity I did get some pictures from the seller. Although a bit grubby and tatty, it looks to have some very nice XTR M900 kit on it. It'd be good to see how similar the frame is it is to my mystery Dyna Tech and to compare frame numbers.

Hi all
There is a sticker on the forks which read TANGE ,as you all say there not the originals .The frame number starts AA .
Does anyone know the colour code for the Wine paint work on the Orge XT ? It looks very nice .
I know my ''MT-4''? should be black/silver but it would be closer to original then painting it KTM orange which was the first plan.
