1973 Husqvarna 250 MX
Husqvarna was originally a military arsenal founded in 1689 to produce muskets for the Swedish Army. The company has since grown and its production has changed from weapons to sewing machines, kitchen equipment, bicycles, motorcycles, lawn mowers, chainsaws and a whole raft of construction products. That original company has been divided and sub-divided over the years – the motorcycle division, for example, is now owned by KTM, via Cagiva/MV Agusta then BMW. In the 1960s, the Husky lightweight, small capacity, two-stroke, off-road bikes helped make the once dominant British large capacity, four-stroke motorcycles quickly obsolete. Husqvarna was, during the 1960s and 1970s, the dominant force in the dirt bike world, winning 14 motocross world championships, 24 enduro world championships and 11 Baja 1000 victories across the 125, 250 and 500 classes. It is Husqvarna over Triumph, perhaps, that the late Steve McQueen is best associated with.

This 1973 250MX Husqvarna is an older restoration of a classic Husky motocrosser, a long time resident inside in a private collection.
