Real nice.
Simple, clean, great (and kinda obvious) idea.

Not bad. Don't care for the yellow plate.

Those look great. That should be what the '23s looked like. The standard models look terrible. These look so much better.

I guess I'm too old but would love to see a heritage model from 1971-3 time frame. A bit tougher to do than this but would be very nice. Appreciate their efforts to remember where the brand came from!

Only thing it needs is gold rims.
Mario Kern had this nice 92 Kari Tiainen tribute built last year...

Quick and dirty photoshop. This thing would look really good in race trim with graphics, numbers, and a blue'd pipe. If I had more time I would dress her up but you get the idea:

It's a beautiful design, and a brilliant piece of marketing. I'd absolutely demand one of those if I were buying a Husky.

Yep, this is what all of the '23's should be.

Well done Husky!

Great looking designs

It's always felt like Pierer/KTM haven't played as heavily on classic Husqvarna styling cues as they should considering the only asset they really purchased in Husky was the branding legacy of the most storied make in off-road motorcycle racing.

Color of plates don't mean squat if you're racing.

We pretty much have a rainbow of all the different classes. I run blue backgrounds and white numbers/letter. I love the look of the bikes, my backgrounds would only make it better.

Meh, not sure how they could pull this look off. I love these gas tanks.

The Factory bikes looked pretty cool at the Swedish GP.

They look a lot better than the Lego bike look of the normal 23’s, what the hell were they thinking there.

Fortunately it’s just a decal.

That kit looks like the graphics are melting.

Not at all a fan of the partial "H" logo.

The OP pics are far more polished look.

Oh yeah, it's pretty fugly but thought of it when someone mentioned wanting that look. The heritage editions definitely are WAY better than Zach-O's look and even WAYYYY more than the 23 standard models.

Targeting the '83 to 85ish look? With the plastics that flow from the tank to the side panels? It seems like the graphics might be closer to another year??
