I havent been very active here lately since I have moved 750km (thats ~466miles) from my home in Burträsk to an apartment in Uppsala.

In order to do that I had to sell off most of my mc-stuff to clear out my parents garage and everything! Kept my russian hardtail though, will never sell that one..

Anyways I was bullshitting with one of the tattooers at the parlor I go to here and we got in the subject bikes and he asked if I knew anyone who wanted to buy one. I thought it maybe was something kinda like the small displacement 2-strokers Ive owned previously but it turned out to be a Husky 250cc 4-stroker from 1929-1930 something!

Went and checked it out and heres some shitty pics




There is fenders, original batterytray and some other stuff too.. But I was thinking about going early race/dirttrack/hillclimb/speedway kinda style! Picking it up on saturday and will get better pics with a better camera then.

Cheerio!

Congrats Bobb...

It´s a cool bike, i have two friends who have Husqvarna 250 sv. Of course, one of them have a Ariel 550 engine from -28 in it.
The dirt-track style works fine on that bike, at least i think so.

I will not attend Moon show the 18:th, i will be on that giant swapmeet in Västerås and try to sell some parts.



Later // Patric

Well I am allready looking for another engine for it, dont think its really much go in this one!

I heard about that swapmeet, and the same day is my uncles birthday and he is throwing a party in Stockholm! Decisions decisions...

Dont know if this particular one is the original but they used the bicycle looking ones on many of their early bikes but its alot sturdier than on bikes, mopeds and so on.

Let me help you with that....

Your uncle is going to have a birthday every year but your new engine just might be at that swapmeet.

love the look of these old huskys... i've only ever seen one single and one v-twin in person (both in england). i've never seen any here in the US.

what are the prices like on the singles? (i know the twins are spendy)

Hello Swedebobb,
Nice bike you got. I wish to share with you the restoration of the bike. I own a Husqvarna SV30 1929, a nice bike I will restore as far as I can in original condition. I need help to get or make the footboards mainly. Other less important parts are also of help needed, such as measurements and photographs.
If I can help you in something for your bike, don´t hesitate to ask me.
cheers,
Hans.
