A few months ago I traded my 1994 WXC 125 Husqvarna for one of the bikes that I always wanted a 1979 Husqvarna CR 390. The bike looked to be in great shape until I got it home and took it for a spin. It jumped out of 4th gear, and there were other things

So it's been a while since I've given an update on the old girl. I've decided to go a different route with the looks of the bike. New Guts seat cover, shrouds, fork guards, and graphics. It should match my 390 pretty good when it is done.

I cleaned it really good with a degreaser and then I painted it with an automotive paint. It has held up really well so far.

I haven't rode this bike enough to hurt it yet, but I stripped the bronze color off my 2017 TE 250 ignition cover and coated it black. Where my foot rubs it the coating has come off. I think it still looks better than the bronze cover though.

It doesn't have a removable subframe, the CR's didn't have a loop. I have laid it over a couple times and it seems to be alright. As heavy as the frame is I'd say its pretty strong still.

So this might be a long post..... A few years ago I decided to get out of riding. I had a 2004 SX 200 that I had all through college and then I decided to stop riding and mess with my Camaro some. I sold the 200 and after a couple months of not having

I found a few more cool pieces that I added to the bike. A carbon fiber fuel guard and a carbon fiber chain guide.

I actually like it. I had a Rekluse in a 250F Husaberg and I hated it, but the more I ride this bike with the clutch the more I like it. It helps ALOT on the tight technical trails.

Looking good. If I could find a Doma pipe for mine I would put GL 111 number plates on mine. I have Ryan Hughes number plates for it now.

I had the Husky out at a local vintage race over the weekend. It was HOT and the bike ran great. I took a little getting used to, been about a year since I had ridden a 125.

Thanks! Mine will soon have a LS and a 6 speed, if I can stop buying old dirt bike to redo.

I'll be there Friday, third year in a row for me. I'm looking for parts for the KTM and Husky.

It's pretty much finished. Just a couple more pieces then it will be off to tuning the bike. I had an issue with the HPI ignition that I purchased, I purchased one that was listed for a 1991 125 Husky but it apparently has a different flywheel. I checked

I appreciate the help, I'll probably need it. I've actually been looking at your build thread, I might try and make my bike with the red seat and the 1990 graphics. I'm not a fan of the mint green.

Made another purchase yesterday evening. 1992 KTM 125, paid $100 for it. It's pretty complete except for the plastic. This will be the next project on the list, which means the Camaro will be put on the back burner again.

Here is my 2002 SX 125 that I built. I had a 2004 SX 200 growing up and I always loved the way these bikes looked. I have a set of Ryan Hughes number plates and air box graphics to make it a replica some day.

The engine is going to look pretty cool with black cases and natural cylinder. I sent the crank off a couple days ago to have the threads repaired and I ordered an ignition. I found a Dynoport silencer for it too. Getting close to being able to take

I'm pretty sure you are correct. My 94 has a different swing arm. That bike has the same Showa suspension as my 94, I'm not sure what year they switched from WP suspension. I know the rods for these bikes are somewhat hard to find. Wossner has pistons, ... more »

This is my 3rd Husky, 2017 TE 250, 1994 125, and a 1983 WR 250.

It's a 2002 SX 125, I had a SX 200 a few years ago.
