The styling of the front fender doesn’t match the rest of the bike, but the dual-sport kit means that this iconic Husky is now street legal. Take the good with the bad, and then maybe take some time to get a different headlight and front fender. The 250 WR is one of Husqvarna’s most famous machines, as it was one of the stars in On Any Sunday as Malcolm Smith’s ride.
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 example is equipped with a PVL electronic ignition, Mikuni carb, and Baja Designs lighting kit. The sale includes a few tools, tool kit bag, shop manual, and 3 rear sprockets. The seller notes that the bike starts on the “second or third kick” and that it runs strong. Find this street legal Husky for sale here on Craigslist for $3,200 in Ridgecrest, California.
