I Ride: Husaberg FE 450 Force Edition
Husaberg FE450 2004

Cheers all!

I'm relatively new to hard enduro and I have an opportunity to buy a Husaberg FE450 2004 from a friend.
The bike is in relatively good shape and I have been doing oil and filter changes for the past two years.
I have also swapped swingarm bearings (thanks again Taffy!), wheel bearings, shock bearings and did valve adjustment once or twice on that bike. Two and a half years ago the PPO did a complete rebuild at a shop of which I know the owner and trust him in doing a good job. After the rebuild the bike has around 110 hrs of mild enduro riding.

The price is 2700€ but keep in mind that here in Croatia we're not in the EU so comparing prices is worthless.

What do you think?
How many hours of riding is the bike capable before the next major work from your experience?

The bike would need a set of brake pads in the future and a set of sprockets and a chain in near future....

Thanks!

Re: Husaberg FE450 2004

I am no expert, but believe that anything is possible to put right on a mechanical product. The bike you know is better that the anxiety that comes with one you don't. Mileage and hours are irrelevant unless you know how it has been ridden. If you have been looking after it you should have a good idea, price is another thing. What something should be worth and what you are willing to pay could be two different prices. It is apparently a buyers market, there was a really clean 501 FE on ebay for circa Ł1800 and that is meant to be a definitive model! If you want it, can afford it and realise that something could 'let go' at any stage but would be replaceable or rebuildable then jump in and buy it! Have some fun, you only live once.

I bought my 501 on ebay at a reasonable price and have had to do some work, there will be more bills too, but every penny is worth it. If I put two pounds in a jar everytime I use it and enjoy it I am nearly in profit!

Fill your boots Makazica, it's only going to make you happy even it hurts to begin with!
