Husqvarna 250cc Military – 1976
United States Military Model

U.S. Army joined the off-road motorcycle revolution and ordered approximately 100 of these automatic transmission Huskies. The rear rack would support radios, extra fuel, or ammunition and accessory mounts could be added for rifles or automatic weapons. As you can see, the color was Army green and black – no chrome here as reflections could be seen afar.

Wish I had some great battle stories to tell you, help me out if you know some, but as far as I know the Husky Military Model was not responsible for winning any wars. The fact that the U. S. Army purchased the Swedish motorcycle helps confirm the popularity the Huskies enjoyed at the time.

This bike was meticulously restored by Noble Butler back to original – U.S. Army specifications.
