collector in the USA, has completed his latest rare
find........and he took it out riding tday. The 1966
Husqvarna 360 is so rare and desireable that all the rest
sit in collections unused.

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

1972 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
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.
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.
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

Tack så mycket.
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.
I also have additional
hobby pages I work on.

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
