This week's collection comes from Kent Taylor of

"This is a 1978 Husqvarna CR 250. The Husky dealer was going out of business, but needed to fill some orders for parts. Rather than order new items, he just took some of them from this bike. When he closed his shop in 1979, this was a new bike, missing some Magura levers, a rear wheel and a gear shift lever.The fellow who purchased it rolled into his garage, and that was it.


"When I purchased it in 2000, it hadn't even been started. Parts were replaced with original items. I added the Works Performance shocks and have raced it for many years in the Evolution/Post-Vintage classes.
