    I ride lots of single track here in southwest pa. Haven't done too much to it other than armor it up and swap on a lectron carb.

    Power wise it's pretty mellow. Lots of low/mid with almost no "hit". Still, it's a blast to ride and keeps up with newer bikes just fine.

    I raced one of these for years in SoCal. I ran the last 3 Barstow to Vegas races on it. That bike taught me throttle control!:D

    That brings back fond memories of the '81 490 I had. The guy I sold it to couldn't kick it. He push started it all the time. That WAS a safe bet though.:lol3

    Great looking bikes everyone. I drooled over those Husqvarna 360's back in the late 90's. I met a dude at the St. Anthony sand dunes years back that had one he wanted to sell to me.. Probably a 94-96? It was all white and looked brand new.. Anyway I still kick myself for not buying it I think he only wanted $1200 which seemed like a great deal at the time. They're a pretty rare bike around here it seems.

    It's been a long winter already hasn't it?! :eek1

    Found a 1974 TS 400 Suzuki in a barn in Lewisville Nebraska. It had been crashed back in the early eighty's and set in the barn with five gallon paint cans stacked on it.
    I've restored it runs great. I'd like to post some pictures but don't know how. Someone tell me how and I'll post the whole build.
