    1984 WR250 in MX Trim, first of the water cooled last of the twin shocks.
    Just got it back running was imported from Sweden last year and had a worked on cylinder which
    ran like a pig at low revs, but went like stink at the top end.
    So now has another standard cylinder fitted and runs very well.

    the 84.5 year bike is the first of the LC motors 250 / 400 in the twin shock frame. Initially there was an 84 a/c with the steeper rake then they added the lc frames into the mix until 85.5 when the first wrx in single shock appeared. the l/c single shock frame was designed for 84 release but wasn't fully proven so they "interim modelled it" with the twin shocker till it passed quality control.

    note this is my read on what happened based on what I was told when I purchased a new lc 250 in late 84. Other people with a more intimate knowledge of husky marketing and developement may have a more informed opinion.. as my father used to say to me..."your not often right:thinking: ...and your wrong again my boy:mad: "

    the wrx you speak of have the normal 85/86 tank and shrouds with 2 rads tho..this bike has the odd 84 cr250 single rad setup with unique shrouds. the 84 cr 250 was liquid while the 84 wr250 was air. when the wr went liquid it never saw the weird rad setup the cr first got.

    A 125 rider project I had for a while lives again.It was a trade deal some years ago.The frame kind of puzzled me.Ends up someone did a very good job of steeping the rake a bit.Looking at it side by side with my 75 360 you can see the difference.They also spent a lot of time drilling holes in everything:brake shoe,axle spacers,shift drum,foot pegs.I had scored the asch pipe a while back,and with some porting it really runs strong.I always hung on to my 75 can-am 125 as a bench mark for fast,looks like I don't need it any more! 125 husky 029.JPG 125 husky 030.JPG
