    They used to also make very good motorcycles. Back in the early to mid 80's I owned several Husqvarnas including a single cylinder 500cc 2-stroke that I rode in Hare Scrambles and Motocross.

    It was a beast to kick start, especially after you got tired and had to restart it after a crash. But once started - look out. The engine was built like a tank.

    the link shows their motorcycles and how they are now fuel injected 2-strokes not the first in 2 smoke fuel injection but good that are still using 2 strokes as they rip but america has banned them unless they can meet strict emission standards. and fuel injection is one way they can do it.

    most other makes have turned to 4 strokes here in the states as its to costly to make a 2 stroke meet emissions.. epa-

    Most of the European bikes had left-hand kickers while the Japanese bikes were on the right. When I first got a Husky I kick started it using my right leg while standing to the left of the machine. After a short while I learned to start it with my left leg while sitting on the bike, which ended up being much easier.

    Hiya,

    Yes, they made motorcycles and firearms. I had several of the bikes, a 450 Desertmaster and a pair of 1979 250 and 390 CRs. The bikes were good, they weren't the best handling, they tended to want to go straight very well however, they didn't want to go where you pointed the front wheel unless you let the rear slide around, a bit of rear wheel steering so to speak. I gave up on them when Maico released the 490 in '81, that bike was so far ahead of every other brand unless you were on one, you were loosing.

    I have a couple of the m96 Mausers they made for the military, an M96 long and a M38 short rifle. In the '80's Woolworth's used to sell them, I remember walking through the mall carrying one of them out to the truck.

    I always liked Maico. They were very purpose built. The 501 was legendary.

    I wanted one of them Maico 490's in the worst way. However they were way to expensive. Had an 81 KX125 that was a decent bike. Only thing it lacked was liquid cooling. The other 3 Japanese bikes had it already by then. That's why I got it for a good price.
