Doing just the wheels and brakes would not be too bad. There are a lot of different setups that you can run either go crazy $$$ or stay cheaper. I think the harder part would be the E start unless they make a kit. Maybe one of the bigger Husky experts can help answer that question.

forget about an electric start for that. as far as sm stuff, it's hard to find for right hand chain models. I'd find stock hubs then have them laced to sm rims then get a sm frt brake kit. I've got an sm610r and it'll top out at almost 125 (scary and wallowing 125 that is)

Listen to the Russian. Paul at GP hooked me up with a great deal on my suspension and brakes.

GP rocks!

Anytime you wanna take out that boat anchor of a husky you got and watch mine go by yours as you top out at 110.
