Husqvarna 400 Cross – 1969

The bike that made Bengt Aberg famous, or was it the other way around? Aberg took the Huskies full 400cc machine to 500cc World Championships in 1969 and 1970. The combination of the Huskies precise handling and incredible horsepower (nearly 40 HP) made this machine a motocross weapon.

The 400 Cross was equally successful in the California deserts and in the Baja 1000 with riders like Gunnar Nilsson, J.N. Roberts, Malcolm Smith, and Whitey Martino. Edison Dye’s team of mechanics would mount large gas tanks and lights for the torturous Baja and the Husqvarna reliability would assure a good finish.

This example, built for me by Husqvarna expert, John LeFebre could almost be considered a new motorcycle. Over 50% of the parts used in the restoration were NOS (new – original stock) parts.

Please enjoy this excellent example of the Husqvarna golden years.
