For sale, museum piece or vintage racer! This bike was one of the last bikes to run on the beach at the Daytona 200. Jake Bodimer rode this bike there in 1958,1959 and the last year in 1960. His best finish there was 1959 with a 10th place finish. He rode this bike well into the 60's. These bikes were produced and raced from 1952 until it was replaced with the famous XR in 1969. This bike was a road racer in its day and the motor was put into a early year XL frame for the suspension instead of hardtail frame, making it much more competitive at races like Daytona. This bike also ran on flat tracks like the Springfield Mile in 1965. Great to see race records that recorded the VIN number of the bikes that raced! Anyone who knows old bikes will like the names that Jake raced against in 1965! I am the 4th owner of this great old racer. The 81 on the number plates commemorate Jakes 10th place finish in the Daytona 200 in 1959. The engine was replaced after he blew the engine on the first lap of the 1960 Daytona 200. A replacement engine was restamped by Jake. This bike was owned and raced by Jake until the late 60's then it was sold to a guy in Louisiana and then Richard Ennis of Hot Springs bought it in 1975 and would race it occasionally in vintage races. I got the bike from his estate when he passed away. He ran the number of 3n on it and his XR he owned. This is a rare chance to get one of 16 1957 KR's, especially one with race history. I have the title that was issued to Richard from the state of Louisiana in 1975 and the bill of sale where he purchased the bike.
