Alright boys, welcome to my new Vintage Husqvarna Restoration Extravaganza thread! I've really done it this time :eek1. I have a shop full of beat up old Huskys needing lots of work. The plan is to get them all going, have some fun and maybe even race a few of them . Now some of you may already be familiar with my "Building a YZ465 Factory Replica " effort. This thread will continue in a similar vein but will instead feature air cooled Husqvarna's of the late 70's and early 80's. The current lineup includes a 1980 CR250, 1978 CR390, 1980 CR390 a 1981 CR430. I was initially going to chronicle these new efforts in the Yamaha thread but was persuaded by WFOPete that the topic was different enough to warrant a fresh start, so here we are. One thing for sure though, I will still be tinkering with the big bore YZ/IT's ... they are not going away! And I am eager to see how the Yamaha's and Husky's compare. I also plan to continue to report on events and races that I attend. At first I wasn't sure as to which thread I would report these to. But I have since decided that this will be determined by which bike I ride. So if I race a Yamaha the event report will go in the Yamaha thread. If I race a Husqvarna the report will go here. One other thing. I am not a Husky expert by any means. Please keep this in mind as I muddle through all this. And please feel free to chime in with any comments or suggestions. All are welcome!
