My ‘81 Husqvarna 250cr, my ‘79 Husqvarna 250 or, 78/79 Husqvarna 390cr, 83 Husqvarna 250wr, 83 Husqvarna 430wr, 85 Husqvarna 400 wrx was the perfect assortment of rides.
I found the higher foam of the early seats rode better. But I could ride any of them.
To actually have ridden a Swedish Husky in calendar year 2018 I had to get busy. I know I started a two stroke this summer but did not ride it due to where I was. It was rather frustrating first the carb flooded, tapping the float bowl and removing the plug for while got it going. Then I had the gas off and these are frustrating to re start when you run out, kind of amazing how far it went though. Then it just flamed out which I do not recall it doing. That meant a walk, a rescue vehicle, oxy natural gas treatment to the plug as I did not have another and fresh gasoline. It then behaved like expected for the rest of the day.
I got this bike when it was 9 years old and was able to get a plate.
Nice adventure that you rarely get with a new bike
If a black dog pisses on your tire is it good or bad luck?
Nice looking country side you have there.
he chained the dog to the bike and it was doing 200 yard wheelies in no time....
The black dog is a female so it does not piss on tires. There is a beagle around that does though. I doubt it is good luck, probably kind of corrosive to the rim be it alloy or steel.
Swedish alloy can stand a bit of piss, Japanese alloy can't even stand a bit of damp!
My WRX 400 ´85
Really nice Tom
Well i had 10 of the 12 out for a spin in 2018
My wr250. A work in progress.
1978 OR 390
A mostly complete barn find I bought last winter, requiring a carburetor, a complete stator and packing for the pipe.
Built a mikuni out of a body I sourced locally with needles, slides and jets I had onhand
picked up a Stator assembly from from Vance Smith.
got it running, took it out and very quickly scared the shit out of myself.
Not mine, but I think everyone should have a chainsaw bayonet mounted on a vintage dirt bike, at some point in their lives.
I know I need one
I bought this ‘73 250CR. It’s in California and I’m in Florida. Can’t wait for it to get here so I can start working on it and posting some more photos!
