I actually picked one up at Walgreen's a couple of years back for like 3-4 bucks- light green including the seat. 'Thought about painting it but you've got to draw the line somewhere. In mid-winter, I find my self
staring at it sometimes but so far I've resisted the temptation to make vroom-vroom sounds. I still have the 1100 RT too, not the bike, just the model. The model takes up much less room but is not nearly as much fun to ride, sigh.

I picked up a 1:18th scale off e-bay that looks exactly like my red 06. It's made by Maisto.

They're on eBay a lot. Or do a Google search. Might not find your color if it's an older bike. I never was able to find a 1999 blue model.

Oh my God. Are you serious?? Is there a supplier for after-market parts for them too? What about little Corbin seats, rear top boxes, fork braces.... I see a tech day for the plastic ones in the future.

My 4 year old has a die-cast KLR, he got it as a gift. It is the team green colors.

I was looking at it and was amazed at how detailed it is - it is really accurate.


Couldn't tell if the doo was done though.

Anybody seen a die-case '08 yet? Hope when they do make one they paint it 'go-fast' GREEN!

I have 3 die cast (red/black, green, barbie colored) and a BIG one that came with a knock off GI Joe guy. I got the big one from Big Lots back a couple of years ago. Dunno if they still sell them or not.

I'll post a pic if I can remember.

Is there a 685 kit for it?

Picked up a red one off of E-bay, I have it proudly displayed in the kitchen so that it may be toasted too.

Have an 02 Die cast that matches my bike perfectly. Sits on a shelf in my office. Several people notice it and when I get stressed out, a look at the bike on the shelf invariably puts a smile on my face
