1971 Husqvarna 400 Cross

Motocross Bike

I saw my first motorcycle when I was 13 years It was being ridden by Swede Aberg in the 1971 Trans-Am at Park. Seeing Aberg up Saddleback’s uphill, the front mud flapping, the sound of that 400cc motor cracking the and the resulting clods of dirt his rear tire kicked up me immediately.

I became a devout fan. And the bike behind new infatuation was the Husqvarna.
