I never saw a 175 Husky out here in So Cal back in the day. Did they import them to the US?

Some gals back in the 60's found Yamaha's to be Exciting
Especially the Chicks that were into Swinging! Yeah Baby!










Annette Funicello was even hanging out with Swingers that were into Yamaha's back then!

Check my Dirtbike video thread. We have one. It's a 76 WR250 (cross country model.) The paint on my brothers in the video is a rattle canned burgundy...so not stock.

1976 175 Husky more than likely, not sure if the 77's are pretty much the same or not
Looks like that one has a Petty front plate and Mudder rear fender.

76 250's were red, wr/cr. 360's were purple for lack of a better word. cr/wr.

that blue bike can't be a 250/360.

after graduating high school in 1975 I spent what should have been my college years on a 76 360 CR riding endless wheelies across cornfields and hayfields that are now housing developments. seemed important at the time and now I see it's all paid off.

just to get my hands on a gunnar gasser one more time....
