Bike of the Week

That husky is awesome. I just sprouted a little wood. Are the frames gold now from the factory? Combined with the black plastic and blue graphics it really looks .

I want a motard bad but can't afford it right now .

When reading this I was just thinking to myself who copied the design on my husky.

I gotta check the front page more. I just skip to the SM section now.


The frame was powder coated, swingarm and subframe polished. Graphics were stock from the factory in '04

BTW Thanks for the Supermoto love.

Is husky, husqvarna, husaberg?

Or are they two different manufacturers.

If I look for a husky, what do I search for? Husky SMR450 or what?

to be fair I made it a gixxer first but there was some confusion on my part on who's bike it was so I just said fuck it and made it another husky. I'll do mine next week and we'll make it a trifecta.

I dug yours too, just something about this one got to me. I think it was the gold frame. If it makes you feel any better, I sprouted a little wood for yours as well.

No problem. The bike looks awesome and the gold frame really sets it off.

BTW for those following this from the sidelines here is what Vcook is talking about


Yes that is Carbon Fiber.

Nah Supermoto bikes are meant to be ridden hard and put away wet. It would be a disservice not to put that bike on the track.

I'd be happy with just the husqvarna swingarm stickers. I saw the part number for those somewhere on smj, I should order a pair.
