This is a replica of the 1967 Husky 360 Baja 1000 winning bike ridden by Malcolm Smith And J.N. Roberts. There original bike used a large 4 gallon BSA gas tank just like the one in the photo. The bike had front head light off of a BSA and a tail light from an unknown source, stock Girling shocks where used with the chrome covers left off.

This 1970 Husqvarna 400 is owned by Factory Husqvarna rider Mark Blackwell. This model of bike won the 500 World GP Championship in 1969,1970. A new 36 mm Bing center float carb showed up on this model, also ridged Akront rims were new for this year.

This 1972 Husky 250 WR Marks a big change in frame and engine development.The new engine included center cases and 5 speed transmission. The clutch assembly is much larger along with a cover to protect it. This frame changed just enough to hold the new engine.

In 1973 this 250 CR came with a much more trimmed down gas tank for motocross along with plastic fenders, new lower fork legs and a new exhaust pipe. The engine got a new cylinder and connecting rod. This bike has an after market manifold that houses a reed assembly.

The bike here is a 1974 CR 125. This bike has improvements over the 1972 & 1973 125's, That include a new expansion chamber, cylinder, piston & connecting rod, fork triple clamps, Betor forks and french LeLue wheel hubs.

This 1974 Husqvarna 250 Mag bike represents the beginning of big changes for Husky and the Motocross World. New for the 1974 250 CR is a swing arm that is the beginning of  long travel suspension for dirt bikes. Dirt bikes have had about 4 inches of rear wheel travel from the beginning and this bike has 6 inches. Soon all dirt bikes would start to increase front and rear wheel movement in big ways. This bike also has Magnesium engine cases and monster size reed block assembly.

This bike is a 1974 Husky 400 CR vintage race bike. It has many after market parts that personalize it to the owners liking. It has a Profab swing arm, Ohlins rear shocks, Proform expansion chamber, aluminum gas tank and CNC machined fork triple clamps.

This bike is a 1976 Husqvarna 125. By 1976 the 125 in this picture has the new long travel frame called the GP frame. The engine has a reed cylinder and piston to go along with it, aluminum gas tank and magnesium fork sliders. This bike has 7 inches or more, front, and rear wheel movement. This bike came with shoulder less Akront rims.

This is a 1979 Husqvarna 250 CR. By 1979 all dirt bikes have about 10 inches of wheel travel, front, and rear. In just 5 years dirt bikes have gone from 32 inch seat height to 37 inch plus seat height, more plastic and larger tires came as well.

This 1976 Husqvarna 250 CR GP bike is a real factory race bike that the average guy could go to the local shop and buy. It came with all of the same parts that would have been on Heikki Mikkola's GP winning bikes. The only difference would have been cylinder porting, ignition and ignition timing, handle bar height and a few personal tweeks. These bikes were light, fast, and very strong.

Pictured here is a 1969 Husqvarna 400 Cross, In 1969 Husky came out with a 400 cc bike which would win  the 500 cc world chamionship in 1969 and 1970 with Bengt Aberg at the controls. This first 400 used many of the same parts as the old 360 used but came with the much needed bigger and stronger rear hub, and with the increased cylinder came a larger expansion chamber.

This 1973 Husqvarna 450 Desert Master is most desired of all the 450 models. The Desert Master was a combination of parts. It came with the largest of all husky gas tanks. The first look at this 4 gallon tank would have been on the one off factory Baja winning 500cc twin in 1969. In 1970 the same 4 gallon tank showed up on the 360 sportsman. This bike also came with a close ratio trans and points ignition.

This 1982 Husqvarna 430 CR is the second year for this model, just minor changes were made from 1981. The way the side panels mounted changed. A minor change in the kick lever and the seat pan. This new engine design came with many changes to the transmission, clutch gear, kick gear arrangement. This made it possible to kick start the engine with the clutch pulled in and the transmission in gear.

This is a 1978 Husqvarna 390 CR with a few upgrades on it. It has the larger 40 mm forks and fork clamps. These parts can be  added with very little effort. It also has the newer Ohlins piggy back shocks installed. One of the other larger parts upgrade is the exhaust pipe off of a 1982 Husqvarna 500. This again is a part that takes very little effort to install. With all the upgrades it gives this 1978 bike a newer look.

This 1966 Husky 250 shown here was restored in 2006. Some of the features of these 66 and early 67's are coned exhaust pipe, push in gas cap, oval tubing to construct the swing arm and front fender bracket with tight radius bend where fender mounts to bracket. About 300 of these 250's were built. Most of these bikes came with 19 inch front wheels.
