Thought I'd share my new ride..

Recommended Posts

I threw this up in the Husky forum thought I'd share it here too, I'm pretty stoked about this one.I just picked this one up the other day. I am pretty excited about it. All it cost me was a case of Heineken. With the deal I got 2 extra frames, and 2 250 or motors... the catch is.. 2 owners ago broke the clutch cable on a long ride, had to ride it back as a "crashbox" no clutch, so tranny is in questionable condition, shifts through the gears. I will drain it and replace the cable to see exactly how it is. Hasn't run in a few years.

Here are my questions..

If in fact the tranny is junk, open it up and find the parts to rebuild it, or.. swap over to an or tranny (390 that is..) or put together the 250or motor and run it as a 250 for now..its just going to be a trail bike for me, on occasion. I couldn't pass it up. I will flip flop between the MT250 and the Xl500R..

How are they to ride, how were the 250's, which would better suit my needs (Im' leaning towards keeping it a 390..) I am 6' 225lbs. I am a moderate rider, not a whoops and jumps kind of guy, trails and fields with the kids (grownups too..)

I like it!, looks like the previous owner substituted 79-80 RM shocks for the original shocks.

Cool! :) What's with the killer deals on old Huskys here recently? Some beer for this one and another guy gets an OR 390 for free? Guess we all should start lookin' around...

:banghead: to your old Hondas too. :banghead:

Those are Koni remotes.. they weren't stock RM's were they? I have a second set that have yellow springs, trying to find out what they are, no stampings..
