Husqvarna WR description

This Husqvarna is a great original vintage bike that needs a new owner.
It has been fun to own and occasionally ride, but I'd rather let it go to someone who can enjoy it more frequently than I have.
I bought it as a non-running bike and I have cleaned the carburetor, replaced the ignition to include a lighting coil (for headlight/taillight), adjusted the points, replaced the petcock, replaced the air filter, and more.
The seat is newly recovered and is very comfortable. I have new cables that have not been installed yet.
It fires right up and runs strong. This is a VERY powerful bike that can be a hand full to ride!
I have a title for this bike and if wired up, it could be ridden on the street. I have installed a headlight (came off of an old Bultaco... not wired up), and would need a taillight. This is not an off-raod title!!! This has a street title in my name!!!
Vin # starts with MJ making it a 1972.

Has Mulholand aftermarket performance shocks on it.
Fires right up after "tickling" the carburetor and a few good kicks.

The fenders are a bit banged up, but not horrible. Paint is worn from years of enjoyment. Has 2 minor dings in the tank, but nothing major.
Some minor oxidation in the Akront aluminum rims.
Missing chain guard.
Minor leak from the kickstart shaft, but I do have the parts to replace it.
I think the carb drips a little from the drain plug. I will try to fix this before the bike sells, but is very minor.
Tires are non-original and in good condition.
Grips are old and could be replaced.
Sprocket cover was cut for easy cleaning.

This bike runs and rides and is a rare classic bike that has been very enjoyable to own.
If you're looking for white knuckles and scaring yourself with a vintage dirt bike, this is the bike for you!!!
Very loud and extremely powerful.
Fix it up and race it for AHRMA certified races.

Please pay by cash, check, money order, bank transfer, etc.
I do not want to take a hit on paypal fees.

Shipping arrangements are 100% responsibility of buyer.

Husqvarna Baja Concept Unveiled at New York IMS

Fri, 20 Jan 2012 00:00:00 -0800

Husqvarna has unveiled a new dual-sport concept at the New York stop of the 2012 International Motorcycle Shows. At first glance, the Husqvarna Baja Concept appears similar to the Moab concept unveiled at the 2011 EICMA Show last November. Both models are aesthetically inspired by Husqvarna motorcycles from the ’70s and especially Steve McQueen‘s Husqvarna H400 famously immortalized on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
