This is an Original 1972 Husqvarna 450cc WR Cross Country
These Big Singles are getting harder to find in tact. Last raced in1980. She was then parked in a heated garage the till now.
She is out of Elsinore California. from an estate, owner passed away and left a large original Desert bike collection. I acquired her with plans of restoring it to its original beauty. But plans have changed.
As most of us remember, this one is similar look to what Steve McQueen rode in the movie “On Any Sunday”. Great collectible bike.

She is not running currently. Still, she has great compression and just needs to be dusted off & serviced. It will not take much to get her running: fresh gas & oil, new plug, and starting fluid.
