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
looks spot on. I remember that vintage Husky well with that shock mounting configuration. I always remember tickling the Bing and the little gas spurting out. nice job.
