2010 Brand New Husqvarna book!

Special thanks to Gunnar Lindstrom for writing this important book,  Husqvarna Success.  Gunnar is known as the foremost expert on Husqvarna, and for good reason. There isn’t enough room in this article, nor the entire website,to fully chronicle the 107-year history of Husqvarna motorcycles. Such a task would require a complete book. Fortunately, that’s exactly what Husky fans can expect this summer, Juli 2010.

Gunnar has coordinated a four-person effort to document the company he worked for so many years ago. His attention to detail, personal insider knowledge and a lifetime of connections ensure that it will surpass the small number of existing publications and become the defining literary work for all things Husky.
Ten years in the making, Husqvarna Success, has been released by Parker House Publishing this July, 2010.   ISBN-13:978-1-935350-14-9

Thank you Gunnar, Tosh, Torsten and Malcolm for making all us feel like champions in the wonderful world of off road riding with Husqvarna.

72 MJ 400 CR Husqvarna
      motocross1972 400 CR Bengt Åberg Replica

Husqvarna dominated all off road events during 1972...motocross, desert, enduro, and special events like Baja and the Mint 400 as well as world class motocross. World class riders Torlief Hansen, Bengt Åberg, Arne Kring, Gunnar Lindstrom were heros on Huskys.   Have some spare money ready, you'll want a Husky!This MJ 400 pictured above has original high cross bar bars, yellow number plates to signify Open class, and alloy fenders. This is the "New Generation" Husqvarna that was designed with a new heavy duty transmission with 5 speeds and LEFT HAND SHIFT. This was the first model year with this feature of left hand shift. This photo is actually an MJ publicity foto  taken for Cycle World. Interesting to note the cable routing of the front brake cable .... in front of the number plate. This was to assure it did not "hook" the front forks and lock up the front brake. The polished Akronts, polished fenders, chrome tank panels, new shiney spokes, along with fork tubes and handle bars make a "knock out" look for a competition bike. Pulling up on the start line amongst any other brands of the day was quite intimidating. All things being equal, not only did everyone know that you most likely were going to holeshot, but you were looking better than all while doing it. A new 72 Husqvarna 400 sold for $1200. A new Suzuki TM400 sold for $950. It was mind boggling at the time why anyone would have purchased anything but a Husky!


1984 Husqvarna 510 TE
The 1984 Husqvarna 510 TE was a bold and world class step for Husqvarna motorcycles. The 510 was introduced mid year 83 and the 84's were a similiar model. Twin shock on the Husky "O" series frame, these 4 strokes were the lightest and most competitive 4 strokes in the world and in an era that  was dominated by 2 strokes. The engine was kept light with a reed activated oiling system. The "TE" model shown was the the enduro with full lighting, horn, speedo, but don't be fooled , this is a full out competittion model. Twin exhaust was very impressive, as was the plastic tank and new style graphics.

The 84 510 TE has a 6 speed tramnsmission. The camshaft rides in ball bearings, and the big end has silver plated cage. The carurettor, DellOrto 36mm has an accelerator pump for smooth response. The electrical system (SEM) on this model puts out 140watts of power. The front brake is a double leading shoe. The engine has an automatic as well as a manual decompression release.
The rear suspension was Husqvarna ITC. The small horn was bolted to the front tank mount and is visable in the photo. The speedometer cable runs up the right fork leg and has a wire bracket guide also visable in photo.

USA ISDE riders Wally Wilson, Terry Cunningham, Scot Harden, Mark Hyde, Ed Lojak, Mike Melton, and Dick Burleson were just some of the heros that were Husqvarna team riders in this era.




1989 125 WRK and 250 WRK
Husqvarna WRK 125 was the 1988 best selling bike and was improved even futher with Marzocchi forks, new tank and radiator shrouds. The motor is the high horsepower MX version with enduro gearbox and ignition. The 125 is pictured at the top.
Husqvarna WRK 250 was also offered in Europe as a 240 or a 260. White Power provides the suspension. The engine is powervalved, liquid cooled, 2 stroke, 6 speed with plenty of power. Excel rims were standard equipment, but the Pirelli tires as pictured may have been changed for USA sales.


1998 Husqvarna TE 610
This TE 610  is a high tech , liquid cooled four stroke with a four valve head and overhead cam. This bike comes with 45mm Marzocchi forks and a progressive linked Showa monoshock. The tires are Metzler "Unicross", chain is DID and the brakes are Brembo. The Husqvarna engineers are still producing the best looking and worldclass competitive motorcycle. The spark plug is a NGK C7E,  gearbox holds 1600 cc's,  Dell'orto PHM 40 DS carburator is used,  and the displacement is 577 cc's. This Husky has a six speed gearbox and uses DID 520 chain.
Like the TE model above, the lights make this competition model legal for enduro events, but were not intended to make this model legal for street use. The kick stand folds way up out of harms way and is visable tucked under the left number plate. Great handling, hi reliability when maintained properly , excellent torque thru out the full rpm rangemake this model a great modern competition or trail riding bike.

Heikki Mikkola decal
      issued May 1970

Thanks again to club member Kevin Grimes for Mikkola decal for '71-'74 250CR's and WR's. I don't find this decal very often as I locate 250's of this era. The Husqvarna factory did apply some of these decals to the air cleaner covers, and they did supply the decals to the dealers, but some bikes were missed. Anybody have a better recollection than mine? You will notice that the two decals have a different color yellow/gold fill and the ribbons and other details are different.


Happy Huskys
Craig

Husqvarna Motorcycle Hobbyist Club Gopher Description:
Craig's 250 T Commando

My name is Craig Comontofski and my wife and I live in Martinsburg,West Virginia, a small town in the very easternmost part of the state and a very historical location from a Civil War viewpoint. My large scale interests are motorcycle and automobile restoration , but can extend to major home improvements as well.

My first Husky was a '66 model 250 I bought from Dub Smith in '69. I rode the '71 Elsinore Gran Prix after following ignition and suspension upgrade suggestions on the '66 from Malcolm Smith who was the local Husky dealer in Riverside. I placed 23rd out of about 900 -- I thought I was pretty hot stuff . Bought a new MI 250 in mid-'71. Raced my brains out at Spillway, Baymare, Indian Dunes, Coalinga, Laguna Seca, etc . Bought a new Husky each year in '72, '73. I was a Cal Poly Penguin MC member and was fortunate enough to able to have free range in the Las Padres Natl Forest. Quit racing motocross in '74 and put the '73 400 away. Moved back to sports cars, antique cars, restoration........came foward to Huskys in '92 with a renewed desire. Joined AHRMA, AMA, and proceeded to scour the country for old Huskys to restore for show, race and collecting. I lucked out with good project material coming from all over the country. My expertise due to "hands on experience" is 55-84 motocross. Old Bike Journal features my 250T Commando in April '97. Old Bike Journal is no longer in print, but you can still find great Husqvarna articles in the Husqvarna Club Newsletter.
