In the 60s, American motoross was full of heavy street bikes that had been poorly modified to play in the dirt. A man named Edison Dye was on a trip to Europe and noticed how riders were utilizing smaller and lighter bikes. After getting Malcolm Smith to try out a Husky, Dye became its importer to the states, and the rest is history.

This specific Husqvarna WR 250 has been sitting in dry storage for 30 years, and as such, it’s had very little usage over its life. You’ll get original paint, lovely patina, and a rust free bike. Akront rims are shod with Mezeler rubber, and the original Bing carb is still in great shape. You’ll need new throttle and clutch cables, and it comes with the rarer 6-speed transmission (many equipped with 8-speed boxes!)
