1999 FX 501 for Sale - I'll donate 5% to the site!
Gents (and ladies) - I'm new to the site, though candidly have lurked every now and then for about 2 years. I bought my Berg used in 2003 while awaiting the arrival of a new KTM 520 exc, expecting to probably sell it once the KTM arrived. I liked it a LOT on the trails of Hungry Valley. I also occasionally ride "veteran" motocross tracks. I realized that a big 4 stroke like the Husaberg or the KTM 520 would be too much work for an old geazer like me on even a modest track. So I cancelled the KTM order and bought a new '02 400 MXC from the dealer instead (they gave me a great deal!). I'm now 42 years old with a 14 month old son, and neither bike gets ridden much at all anymore. Added to that, my Tahoe toy hauler was recently damaged and is a "total loss" for insurance purposes, so I no longer have room... Before I put the Berg on Craigs list, I thought I'd give Husaberg fans a deal. Since I've had the bike I've probably put 25 hours or so on it. I had the bike serviced when I bought it which included fixing a weeping fork seal. Since then I've put a new battery in and had the oil changed. I keep it on a trickle charger now, and it runs great! I even considered converting it to supermoto for a while - until I realized I didn't need the road rash that comes with such conversions. There is a small tear about 1" long in the seat near the tank, and the plastic has the appropriate scratches, but it's a bike I'm not ashamed to own or ride. I'm sure if you're reading this you know the specs: electric start, faster than snot, etc. It has a current California Green Sticker. I will take any reasonable offer, and I'll donate 5% of the selling price to the site!
