A great “composite military Husky Resto from builder extraordinaire Sam Simmons.

Always goo to hear from Mr Simmons!

 

I’ve enclosed several shots of my ‘composite replica’ of the
various military models produced by Husqvarna from 1965 thru 1981.
While the true Mil-Huskys were 250cc,I used a 1972 WR450 as the
basis for my project;the intent to capture many of the features
common to all years/models produced
using genuine NOS military pieces sourced from individuals in both
Finland and Sweden..As usual,quite a few parts were ‘scratchbuilt’
from what few photos/info exist for these bikes. To compound
matters further,the WR450 models weren’t particularly popular
here.
Overall,I think it’s a convincing representation of the Husky’s
used in service.

Best Regards,

Sam
