One-Off “Lady Blue” – 1973 Husqvarna 250

In Custom, Off-Road, Sweden by AbhiLeave a Comment

This Husqvarna’s got an interesting history – the seller claims it’s “possibly the rarest Husky ever” as it’s a one-off made by Edison Dye, the father of American motocross. It was apparently built as a gift to his wife Rita as a prototype for a more ‘female-friendly’ dirtbike, but nothing happened after after this one prototype.

Bonhams auctioned it off in Vegas in 2014 but I don’t think it sold as there’s no result on the listing, but it’s still worth checking out for the additional history. The design of the Lady Blue featured lots of white: frame, swingarm, fork legs, and triple clamp. Polished parts included the fneders, hubs, spokes, and rims.

This example was restored in 2013 by Don Ince of Vintage Viking and it’s been stored dry since. The seller says the only flaw is a dent on the top of the exhaust between the seat and the tank.
