    In my inept opinion......ditch the yellow / blue bodywork for black and that will be a pretty shit hot looking berg....looks a bargain!!

    Oh.... and dont even think of a pre 04 berg however cheap ...the 04 onwards are light years ahead of the old ditchpumps!!!!!

    Ive got 3bananas old bike, the one he is reffering to above. I bought it over a year ago and pretty much rebuilt it. The engine was completely rebuilt by Husaberg specialists Dave Clark Racing to the tune of around 700. I also had the forks rebuilt and replaced the sprockets, air filter, chain guides and wheels, rear tyre (front is excellent), stripped and rebuilt the swing arm bearings etc.

    I rode the bike for the first time since rebuild just yesterday hence me being on here today, it reawakened my interest. It starts extremely easily and runs very well.

    Bob (3banana) used to commute on it so longevity isnt a problem.

    I only went for a short blast yesterday as the bike ran out of mot last September but it would be sold with a full ticket. It will fly through the mot, no question.

    The bike has many modifications to make it as reliable as the later bike, Bob sent me the full list if youre interested. It also has Beringer complete front brake system.

    The bike will be sold with offroad wheels, tyres, sprocket, disc and loads of spares.

    Im only selling it as Ive also got a Triumph Street Triple and a CRF450R SM and, as you can tell, the Husaberg never gets used.

    1795 buys the lot. The first pic was taken just yesterday. Second pic is partway through the rebuild. Third pic shows too many toys. Lots more pics available including those of the rebuild.
