1977 Husqvarna 250wr restoration


My father restored a 1977 Husqvarna 250WR that I gave him as a present earlier this year. This was the first time it was started since the restoration began (I had it running in 2011 and played in the dirt a little), so it took a little bit to get it going. The restoration took about a year. He timed the bike, tuned the carbs, NGK B8ES plug and I believe he is using Klotz bean oil. Still needs a little more tuning. He zinc plated some of the bolts and parts, and used stainless steel in other spots. This is a 100% restore all the way down to the factory stickers.
I think he did a pretty good job
