Yes there's another purple KDX enthusiast who is taking over the logistical/fulfillment portion of the work, he's got a small business and sells on ebay regularly, and is more able to handle 55-65 individual payments and packaging and shipping than what I have time for.
I was going to see if Jeff Fredette was interested in handling this, but this guy popped up with interest in handling it, and Jeff nor anyone else showed interest in initiating a large batch purchase of these, so this made sense.

I'll post updates as they come along, but this is going to happen most definitely now.

UPDATE:
80 pairs of violet (purple) UFO H-series shrouds have been ordered by a fellow enthusiast Jason Jacobson who took over the logistical fulfillment/payment end of things for me!

This is great. I have a 96 with the purple, and I found purple UFO front and rear fender (yes - rear!!! it took 7 years of searching ebay!) I would like to buy a set of new shrouds to replace my scuffed ones (plus a gillimoto purple tank). I'd post a pic of my bike but I don't want to make you purple-lovers green with envy :mrgreen:

I've been following this thread all along and thank you so much for making this happen. I'd love for all of the plastics to be remade by UFO in purple, including frame guards. I'd buy at least one of everything. But realistically, that's not happening. So congrats and thanks for your persistence in making these shrouds happen.

Do you have any contact info or a link to this person's ebay store? Whenever he has them I want to buy a set.

Thanks


OK, OK, I gotta show off that rear fender :grin:

Jason Jacobson is the guy who stepped up to order them and pay for them all in advance by himself. This is his contact.
https://www.facebook.com/profile.php/?id=1550873011

He was planning on listing them on eBay and through other avenues.
He ordered 80, although before he showed interest, I had just gotten up to a quantity of 80 total requested but obviously that might be overstated since that was not backed up by people's money ahead of time. Jason has 4 KDX's so these may go quickly if everyone was serious about their commitment. I was kind of hoping he might order closer to 90+!
I doubt they have began production yet so if somebody wanted more than just one set, now would be the time to perhaps add a few more to the batch as UFO will not touch anything non-stock without a minimum of 50 pieces (or pairs) made. Technically their minimum is 70, but they said they would make an exception for 50 a batch of 50 in this case.

Can I have you guys message me your email or if you have Facebook, just contact Jason Jacobson directly at:

https://www.facebook.com/profile.php/?id=1550873011

to make sure you get a set reserved.

I'm getting 6 sets if he doesn't immediately sell out of all of them. Originally I'd said 5+ for myself (including 1 pair as a gift to my generous neighbor Paul on a KDX as he showed interest).

Well... shipment #1 of 4 has landed in the USA direct from the UFO factory in Italy!
Jason Jacobson is handling the payments and fulfillment of these shroud orders. He will be putting up a Facebook Marketplace ad for them and may list some on ebay, as well as likely advertising them in all of the KDX Facebook groups.
I believe I posted his Facebook contact info above somewhere, but if you don't do facebook, please let me know and I can get you his direct email.

Based on my initial feelers for the group purchase netting over 50 people interested and up to 80 sets requested, Jacob decided he would just not hassle with pre-order payments and went ahead and prepaid the order in full all by himself. Anyone who has requested a set should jump on it ASAP.
He said that if this goes well and they sell in a reasonable amount of time in full, he may go ahead and place another bulk purchase of probably 50 purple fenders front and rear.

I just ordered a set. Jason packaged them up yesterday so I don't have them in my hand yet, but he seems like a really nice guy and is a fellow KX/KDX enthusiast.

I was excited about the PC pipe, am excited about the shrouds, and really hopeful even more purple stuff will come, like the fenders. And if that all goes well, what about purple headlight surround, side panels, and frame guards !?! radiator vents? And then Clarke or IMS makes a perfect factory repo of the purple tank. Oh yeah, and color-correct fork boots. A guy can dream!

Gilimoto in Brazil currently makes a reproduction of the purple tanks. Unfortunately they decided to use the KTM style plastic screws to hold the petcock in, instead of their original batch of green KDX tanks that had threaded brass inserts. Apparently they thought the threaded brass inserts were problematic. I've had tanks that had both pulled out brass inserts from the plastic, as well as a KTM tank with stripped out threads with the plastic auger type screws. I would prefer the brass to be honest. They said they could make purple KDX tanks with the brass inserts but they would cost $280 instead of $200.
All of their tanks use the threaded brass inserts for all of the other holes for mounting the tank, shrouds, and seat. It's just the purple tanks that they opted to use the plastic auger type steel screws to thread into the bare plastic with no brass insert. The two people that I know that have got these were a bit disappointed although they said they worked perfectly fine with no problem sealing

Dirt X Industries makes a stock style violet purple '96 full coverage purple shroud graphic set that sounds to be of high quality:

https://dirtxindustries.com/shroud-kit/ ... 0-replica/
$79
Use discount promo code DIRTX10 for a 10% discount for buying from their website instead of buying from them on eBay


Ringmaster Images dba Action Sports Decals from Australia make the same but for more money though, and also make the partial coverage which only includes the areas which are not the same violet purple color as the shroud:

Price is in Australian Dollars. 159.99 AUD = 104.36 USD

https://actionsportsdecals.com/products ... -stickers/

Ringmaster is who makes the same full coverage heavy duty violet purple '96 KDX graphics that I have with the KX checkered flag background available upon request, same ones pictured in the original photo in this post.

You must email them for the KX checkered flag background '96 KDX version.

This is also Ringmaster Images dba Action Sports Decals from Australia, with another one that's not on their website but very cool if you want the purple 96 graphics with flames, CEET Racing factory replica graphics:

-or-


You'll have to email them to request this one also. $104.36 USD + shipping with current AUD to USD exchange rates.

Jason's a bit busy with fulfilling these orders and I haven't gotten a reply back from my Facebook message to him asking for his email, although he did text me an ebay link and message when I was driving to look at a KTM 200 that my buddy ended up buying tonight.

Here's the Facebook Marketplace ad he's posting on the KDX groups, $50/pair if paid with PayPal friends and family:

He's got them on eBay but at a markup to cover ebay fees and a premium price for those who don't see it in the KDX group posts and forum posts:
