Since we sold the cabin and sleds...
« on: March 27, 2017, 07:31:29 PM »
I needed something to keep me out of trouble...
Back in October, I stumbled across a 1980 Husqvarna WR 390 that had been in a garage fire. Rather than see it parted out and be lost forever I decided that she would be a worthy project.
Got her running and once I confirmed the engine, transmission and clutch were good I decided to make her pretty again.

As purchased...



In the fire all of the plastic body work was melted and the rest of the bike sustained smoke and soot damage. I decided the best thing was to have the frame powder coated... While that was happening I spruced up the remaining parts.

Tear Down...





Engine...





Speedo...





Frame back from the powder coater...



Going back together...


The Ohlins remote reservoirs...



Coming together...



As she is now...

I understand the dilemma. Correct spelling takes time that could be spent licking the windows on the short bus.

That project should keep you out of trouble for awhile.
