I have found something more addictive than mopeds

It is a 1983 Husqvarna 430wr. It has a 600 ninja front end so i can have the dual disk brakes and the adjustable hydraulic dampening. Just bought some dual stage Boysen reeds for it and stuck a much smaller carburetor on it to tame it a little bit for the street. Stock carb is 38mm and I installed a 32mm mikuni vm from a 1973 gt750 because it smoothes out the power in the lower rpm range(below 50 mph). Have a permanent Montana tag that never expires and insurance was 78 dollars for one year of legalness. It pulls wheelies on accident even though I have lowered it as much as possible and will do way over 100mph. Horsepower in stock form is 47 at the rear wheel. Soooo Much fun to ride... My puchs are collecting dust.... It reminds me of a moped engine though, just the one big cylinder sticking up there kinda like a tomos or garreli.

sorry i posted the same pic twice dammet

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

I was fully expecting the more addictive thing to be hard drugs.

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

Yeah! My guess was Meth or Crack, but that looks like fun too.

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

husqvarna + ninja front end?

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

actually mopeds are more addictive than meth, I stopped doing drugs but continue to ride two strokes.. But yeah once you have gotten hooked on mopeds, all other drugs seem weak.

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

ya ninja front end, I have the ninja back wheel too I plan on putting on there as soon as I can get a 50 tooth sprocket so it will match

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

I saw you blasting on that down Eastern Prkwy. You stop to adjust like right behind my house but left right as I was coming out.

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

lol cool.. Im going to show up cafe 360 at 6:30 tonight

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

It's a thing of beauty! 2stroke powerplant and modern suspension. Are you using the ninja swingarm?

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

looks like a dirtbike exaust setup

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

Still... More addictive than Mopeds? I don't know if i can picture anyone having 12 or more of those packed into thier garage...

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

nice...i thought you were gonna say poon tang

how's you passenger like the cool ride?

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

Cool see you there.

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

No I thought about using the ninja swing arm for a while but it is aluminum and the husky one is steel so i can weld on it easier. The bike weighs 230lbs and i am able to load it into my truck by myself no problem. I bet I could out run a suzuki gsxr750 easy enough no joke because of my weight advantage. I have a kawasaki z1 900 and this bike makes it seem like grand dads Hoveround. I have just about got the jetting spot on..

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

Flash hangs on really well. I would like to get him a enclosed doggy carrier box to ride in so i can take off faster with out worrying that he will topple out

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

no way, you crash that thing with flash in an enclosed carrier you're pretty much going to kill him.

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

thats a good point.. I have a box crate thing with higher sides that might be better. So he could still jump out if needed.

Re: There is Help for Husky Addictions

Awesome, awesome, awesome, legal, awesome, awesome.

Is that expansion pipe stock? I love two-stroke street bikes.

Mine starts out sounding low and deep and serious; I idle in traffic looking all seriouslike.

Once you hit an open road the low "BLAT!" turns to "blatblatblat" turns to "waaaaang!" turns to "Hey... this is just a giant moped!"

Re: There is Help for Husky Addictions

Damn thats a bitchin Sweede

Two stroke and disc brakes on the front, dont get any better then that.

i can picture the howl that thing makes.

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

you should try a CT 90 Honda...

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

Holy smokes! I live in boston and I landscape for a living. Consequently, any time I am mowing a house and I see a dude washing/working on anything in his driveway, I walk over. (most times this is how a great moped deal will occur) Anyway, this very thing happened on mon. A dude was washing a dirtbike and I went over to say hi. Long story short, he ended up showing me all his toys which included the sickest husky I've ever seen! The engine set up looked like yours and the bike was so insane. Like 1970's style enduro straight bars chromed out tank (husky stickers still intact) The f-ing noise this thing made.......I wish you could hear it. I wanted it, he laughed. It was the first time I saw something like it and now I'm on a mission. I just got into peds and I'm totally new at it but this thing really sparked something in me. Sick bike bro!

Aw there ^he^ goes, talking about some kind of mushrooms. It figures

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

Nice rat bike!

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

sweet so you can sell me your spare puch engines right?

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

Video or it doesn't exist!

It obviously does and is awesome, but I still want to hear it run. Sweet!

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

That and other Husky WR's were the ones to contend with on the race circuit in the 70's. What a beast! I've seen them throw boulders the size of bowling balls from the rear tire. They have the power to pull the hide off an elephants ass and could climb a hill as steep as a church steeple.

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

hey if those puch are just collecting dust got any you want to sell?

Re: I have found something more addictive than mop

i balance my time neatly between shooting dope and wrenching on peds. w/ an occasional shift at work or sex or a nap or some shit

i love roadgoing mx bikes,i had a 1991 cr500 on the road for a while,it was geared for 125 mph and would still wheelie off the throttle at 100 mph!it got sold in the end because it was a cop magnet.
