Husqvarna Stash: Herd of Huskies Must Go!

two

Here is a whole barn full of 1974 to 1989 Husqvarna motorcycles and parts offered for sale on craigslist. Does anyone have a guess how many there might be or what they may be worth? They are located near Seattle. One would need to inventory them, of course, and know what you are looking at before considering an offer. The seller is asking $24,000 – a number I’m sure he made up. Looking around, I see a lot of interest in vintage Husqvarnas selling for between $1,800 and $4,000. It would be interesting to learn why they are there. I hope a Husqvarna lover sees this and is able to rescue this herd of huskies before the cows move in!

    “Need room for the cows.”, the best line I’ve heard today.

    Wonder if my wife would notice if I put one next to her sewing machine

    This looks like someone bought out an entire dealer, as most of the bikes don’t even look used, and wheels and frames, and a crate. Years ago, I had a Bultaco Pursang, and it was one of the “other” dirt bikes ( not the big 4) Names like Husqvarna, Maico, KTM, CZ, Rickman, and Bultaco, were few and far between. One thing for sure, you’d have an instant bike collection.

      Bultaco. That reminds me of a little cycle shop that had seen it’s better days by the time I visited in 1987, looking for a tire for my Yamaha. He had an old plastic Bultaco Dealer sign that must have lit up at some point on a large pole out front. When I went in, he had all sorts of bikes, mostly older stuff. What caught my eye were brand new Triumphs that must have been 10 years old.

    That’s an interesting theory. Could some of the bikes be new? That could make them very valuable. I don’t know about other brands, but I was surprised to find a suggested exercise regimen in the owner’s manual of my Husqvarna.

    Even if this is new old stock from a cycle shop, I don’t see how they are so clean after being in an OPEN barn for years.

      I agree, they look to clean to have been there long

    They have been where ever this fellow found them I assumed, perhaps at a closed dealer he cleaned out or perhaps a collector. And that crate in the corner might just hold a new motorcycle. It all is a puzzle. Perhaps someone could contact the seller and ask?

    i wish i was close. it needs a PI but if it is all there i think there is money to be made and fun to be had. maybe keep one or 2 for myself. the automatics might bring some extra interest. great finds.
