1966 Husqvarna 250
1966 marked the first year that Husqvarna began importing their machines to the United States for distribution to the American public. Husqvarna played a huge role in the development and would never be the same!
This bike, serial number 66-049 arrived in the United States on February 10, 1966. This bike, along with nine others arrived in Long Beach of the freighter Lions Gate. They were the first Husqvarna’s to arrive in the United States. Of the nine bikes, one of them, a 1966 360cc serial number 66-001, was Thorsten Hallman’s race bike!
This bike was recovered in Imperial Valley in 1993. The restoration took 4 years to complete.
