Husqvarna 250cc CR MAG – 1974


Owned by the Early Years of Motocross Museum - Tom White

When Husqvarna first introduced the all new 5-speed models in 1972, most riders detested the heavier weight and poor performance of the new machines. This was all rectified in 1974 with the introduction of the 250 Mag model.

The Husqvarna factory had listened to the owners complaints and the new model featured magnesium (much lighter than aluminum) components throughout the machine. The engine center cases were even cast out of magnesium and the result was a much lighter machine. Performance was addressed with an all new reed induction engine that delivered stellar performance. The frame also received mods that improved the strength and suspension travel.

The 1974 250 CR MAG was and to this day….is considered by many as the best Husqvarna ever built. This example was restored to showroom new condition and purchased from the Brad Morrison collection. Enjoy!
