    Get rid of your clock, watch, phone, etc. The only time you should worry about is I'm hungry time, I'm sleepy time, I'm thirsty time, I'm horny time, and It's fishing time.

    The first one, my best guess is an early 70's Penton.

    The second one , the KTM looks like a 2012-2014 250 or 300. The vin tag should be on the head tube.

    Given the size of the expansion chamber exhaust pipe, I'd guess that this is a Penton 400. Yellow number plates were Penton trademarks. The 400 was made only for a couple of years in the mid-1970s using a KTM engine. Acerbis is the name of an aftermarket supplier of replacement fiberglass parts like fenders and hand guards.

    The first one is a 75 Penton 400. Get me the last six digits of the Vin on the KTM and I can tell you exactly what it is.

    We probably won't be back to the storage units for probably a month or two. I will look through the paperwork to see if there are titles.

    Does the Penton have any resale value, or is it more of a novelty?

    The BMW might make it's way into my garage.
