Description Husqvarna WR250 1974

A beautifully engineered vintage Husqvarna motocross bike.  The best of the period?
Privately imported from the USA in 2009 as a very original and low hour example.  Stored and unused until 2016.  Currently, this is a race-ready vintage motocross bike for the Pre '75 class.  The next owner has a choice of racing as is or restoring the paint work on the hubs and tank for a collectors piece.
The bike was recommissioned in 2016 with performance and reliability upgrades to the value of $2000 (see list below).  It was then race developed during Victorian Classic Motocross season (2016).  Notable results: Round winner Pakenham (Pre '75 All Powers Non Expert; May 2016) and winner at Lismore (June 2016).  The bike can be a 'giant' killer in the right hands.  The stock engine is nicely jetted (crisp running) with terrific, usable power and the frame is stable and vice-free.  I've also found the package to be very robust.  I have never DNF'ed due to mechanical failure.
$2000 upgrades in 2016, including;
New matrix front brake shoes
New front bearing seals
New brake front cable and throttle cable
New Michelin 'wet' front tire
New front mudguard in original pattern
New Magura hand grips, cable covers and kill switch
New tank rubber
New clutch cable
New seat cover
Hone and new (NOS) Mahle piston (1st O/S 69.68 mm).  Engine requires 20 minutes running in.
Second hand exhaust pipe from 1976 360 (original pipe supplied)
Rebuilt Bing components and new Unifilter and round alu filter cover
Upgraded chrome moly serrated foot pegs made in USA
New Hagon rear shocks
New (stronger) stainless steel rear spokes
New rear bearing seals
All other major components are in excellent condition including chrome moly frame,  engine cases and stainless steel tank (undented).  Fresh oils after every second meeting.  No oil leaks.  Starts easily, every time.
Any notes or issues?  There is a slight graze in seat cover (see image); paint has come off top of tank; paint has come of front and rear brake hubs (see images).  The rear wheel has been re-laced and will require spoke tightening after initial use. The engine is not yet run in.  This will require 20 minutes easy riding before full power is used.  You will have to freshen the drive chain and the fork seals next year. 
Purchase includes WR bash plate, side stand, workshop manual (CD) and usable original parts as spares.
If you wish to hear it running, please contact me asap.  No test rides.  If not sold, I will be relocating this bike to Queensland.
Good luck bidding.  Questions happily answered.
Pick up in Ringwood East (Melbourne) and full payment must occur before Thursday December 1 at 12:00 noon. No exceptions.
