jim's husky

wish i would have taking more pictures of it. so pretty after it was done.  This bike was stolen from Jim's dad thirty years ago. Crazy story! I was jammimg back from billetproof in the buick when i caught a gleamer of faded red paint on the side of the road.  I instantly knew a husky was signaling me.  i did some hot pursuit driving, threw a bitch. I pulled up next to her.  I got out, it was a 360 8spd! I was hooked. Tthe funny thing was I noticed Robbins sport cycle stickers all over it.  Robbins sport cycle was the shop Jim's dad owned in the 60's-70's. They sold kaw's,husky's,bultaco's & a few others.  Jim & his brother dick race motocross through the 60's & 70's. I'll get in to that later.  So anyway i called Jim.  He said fuck that sounds like my dad's bike.  So i bought it.Well long story short it was the bike.  So i road it fucked up the crank, reverse thread crank pin.  I sold it Jim for a good price. Thirty years later Jim was reunited with the last dirtbike his dad rode.  Robbins sport cycle was the shop to buy your shit during the hayday.  I will get more into that at lter time.  Some very good stories.

  1. My first bike was a 100 Kawasaki Trail boss from Robbins Sportcycle. Purchased 2 Ossas, a 250 Husky and a 390 Husky automatic from them. Became good friends with Jim, Dorothy, son Dick and son Jim. Lost track of them after shop closed. Still wish I had the 390.
