As these bikes are a passion with us not just a job, its fantastic when we get some feedback that reflects this. Below is the response received from our most recent customer.....
Having owned and raced a 1982 Husqvarna CR430 during '83 & '84 in the AMCA South East Midlands area, air cooled, twin shock, drum braked Huskys have always been special to me.
When I decided to look for a motocross bike, i wasn't interested in a modern bike, it had to be an old Husky. After doing some research, I came across Ol' Blue, an amazing bike built by Lee Perry at Husqvarnaman, so got in touch. Whilst 'Ol Blue is a four stroke, I was after an open class two stroke, so spoke to Lee to see what he had.
Fortunately, Lee was in the process of rebuilding a 1984 CR500. We had a good chat and I was really interested. Lee offered to send me some photos of the bike being build, and sure enough he emailed me the stage by stage pictures from the bare frame to the completed bike.
After a few more conversations I asked if I could go and see the bike ..... and that was it, I had to have it, and the deal was done!! Lee had produced a completely refurbished classic motocross bike that looked virtually as new. From the white powder coated frame to the rebuilt wheels to the refreshed engine - all top quality.
Whilst meeting Lee and viewing the bike, it was obvious that he has a passion for old Huskys and he showed me his own 510,
