Here we have a guy that is selling 7 vintage Husqvarna (and two Penton) motorcycles at the same time. It seems to me like he may have overestimated the number of Husky collectors that are available at any given time. It nearly ensures he won’t get much competitive bidding.
Husqvarna is a proud Swedish company with over a 100-year history of making motorcycles. While they built many street and road-racing bikes prior to WW2, they are best known for their dominance in motocross, enduro and desert racing in the 1960s and 70s. The 1978 Husky 390 put out 41HP at 8000rpm and was very competitive with the open motocrossers …
The seller of this bike has spent some serious time and money upgrading his Husaberg as he apparently never planned on selling it. His loss means someone’s about to get a serious all-terrain machine – will it be you?
Post Listing Update: After the relist, this bike was pulled off of eBay as there was “an error in the listing.” 12-27 Update: Tom Wacker notes that this bike is back up for sale. Bidding is currently up to $5,778 with the reserve not yet met. It’s still in Bonney Lake, Washington and you can find it here on eBay. …
Some motorcycles are notable, some are famous, but only a very few can claim to be legends and carry that legend for over 40 years. The Husky 400 Cross is one of those. Introduced in 1969 it was instantly the open class dirt racing standard. Many notable riders and victories were racked up in very short order. Steve McQueen owned …
This bike is claimed to have been restored to better than new mechanical condition, though the bodywork and frame “are original and bear the scars of an off-road veteran.” For $1,500, I’d say that’s just about perfect.
Post Listing Update: This ‘berg was pulled off of eBay, final sale price unknown. The Husaberg 570 shared a few components (like the swingarm and the WP suspension with the KTM 560 SMR supermoto), but this bike took it one step further. The seller calls Husaberg “the Lexus to KTM’s Toyota”, which sort of works as a comparison. No matter …
In the seller’s words, this ‘berg has been “upgraded to be a reliable extreme technical offroad bike and comfortable to ride on regular roads.”

If you’re like me, then a.) I’m sorry, you’ve got a ton of problems, and b.) you’d rather enjoy a ‘rider’ than a show queen because then you’re not worried about getting dirty.
Back in the day, everybody that rode in the dirt lusted for a Husqvarna. They may not have always been the fastest, but they always looked good.
Monark was a Swedish motorcycle company that was established in 1908 and then merged into another company in 1961. They no longer make motorcycles, but they had some off-road competition success, including the 500cc World Championship in 1959. In 1970, the company released their first 125 motocross bike, which was available in a few variants – MX, T, and ISDT. …
This beautiful Husky was from the estate of Mike Owens, vintage racer and co-founder of the ‘Legends & Heroes’ traveling motocross museum – it was ridden by him in competition.
