Huskyjunk.com :: 250 Mag Restoration
Welcome to the
Huskyjunk.com Step by Step 250 MAG restoration project.
We will be
building a 1974 Husqvarna CR 250 MAG from the ground up using only the finest,
trickest, lightest, fastest and best parts and components available today. Each
step will show a picture and give a description of any significant changes or
modifications. We intend on building the "Worlds Trickest 250 MAG" for the
purpose of racing it in AHRMA vintage motocross competiton. This bike is not
intended to be a "Show Winner" but rather a racing restoration that is going to
be used, abused and thrashed on every possible occasion. We will spend most our
time, effort and money on performance enhancement rather that cosmetics,
however, it will look good too. Hopefully, this project will inspire and educate
those in need and we hope everyone will want to buy our trick parts and
performance accessories for their Husky.
We will start with a bare 1974 MAG frame and swingarm. This frame is completely
stock and has been bead blasted and immediately sprayed with a light primer
coat. A bead or sand blasted frame will start to rust within hours without some
type of protection. The ID number on this frame is MK 15702. All mag frames were
stamped with MK and started at 10500 and went up from there.
