In 1983, Husqvarna introduced a new 500cc motor for their Open Class bikes, and they promptly won the 1983 Baja 1000 in 14:48:10 with the US team of Dan Smith and Dan Ashcraft. While there were obviously plenty of modifications to the race bike, the production motorcycle was quite formidable in its own right – Husky offered the powerhouse engine in XC and CR variants. Here’s one of the latter, and the seller states that it’s ready to go vintage motocross racing and that it’s capable of triple digits on the dirt.
Stock, the bike put 54 horsepower to the wheel. The seller says that his example now puts down 61 as it’s been “worked up” in an unspecified way. He adds that he’d trade it for a Triumph Scrambler.
