Although I always preferred the traditional Husky look that is a top notch job.



Now you have your garage eye candy you can sit back, have a cold one and enjoy.

  You'll find the Husky very easy to work on and very agricultural but always equipped with the bare minimum to get the job done.

   After my first decent  ride on this bike,  last weekend  , I  can say  that I agree with you Mr Brooks . ;D
 
   Regards ,

Good to hear Steve. Was there anything that you didn't like about the bike say compared to the IT. I must say in all my years riding most time was spent on a Husky. While all my mates were off buying modern bikes I stuck with the WR240. Sure it was old technology but the bike still did everything the new bikes did just you worked a little harder.
  I'm keen to see the bike in the flesh, are you coming down to Cookardinia this year?
