Great information. I'm guessing you have probably considered this; but you might contemplate writing a historical book regarding Husky racing. I remember seeing Gunnar Lindstrom racing at Unidilla back in the late 60's along with Torsten Hallman, which brings back some great memories. With your knowledge of Husqvarna, it might be pretty cool, although a big undertaking. Anyway....food for thought.

That was off of the Husqvarna Italian website and I used the Google translation tool.

Yes, I wish someone would take that on and tie all the history together.
