This is the quintessential woods bike of my youth. Husky made the 240 in Europe but branded it a 250 in the States. Terry Cunningham, Mike Melton, Ed Lojak and the rest of the US ISDE team rode these in Czechoslovakia.
The Husky Auto was a serious race bike but it came about as a spin-off from a Swedish Army contract. In essence, the contract specified that raw recruits, who had never ridden a bike before, had to achieve complete motorcycle competency in a week.
