2008 Husqvarna TE510 Husky 510 Cross

We built the asymmetrical subframe from scratch, incorporating an integrated led strip tail light and indicators in the rear hoop. The tank had to be heavily modified to house the fuel pump, which required cutting a section out and tig welding in a box section. The radiators were tricky to fit in with the tank so they have been moved forward and tighter to the frame. A battery tray was fabricated out of an old car panel i had lying around and forms the whole rear frame splash guard. Kill switch and lights are operated by mini toggle switches housed on the left in the subframe and the indicators, horn and ignition are internally wired in the handlebars in the same style. A daytona speedometer keeps track of things up front and an LED light bar sits tight below a Hella Comet 181 headlight. Aluminium fenders keep the mud off, and the rear we actually cut out of an industrial bay light shroud! Grips are transparent coke vintage style and the seat is an off the shelf eBay special. The exhaust is GP style and a good friend was kind enough to TIG up an elbow section to make it fit in with the bikes lines. The frame is satin black 2 pack. The tank was sourced from a wrecking yard, stripped back and file finished. After many hours of polishing I masked up the polished sections an painted the iconic Husqvarna tank colour scheme. The decals were made by another good friend in keeping with the retro theme. The Husky rolls on Excel rims with Shinko 244 rubber, 21″ up front, 18″ at the rear. Finishing off the look are the obligatory yellow race plates and some stealthy chrome mirrors which hide themselves under the handlebars.
