Hi Kristleifur,
Thanks for the compliment, when i see the photo's when i got the bike and now, yeah it's indeed a looker
By my knowledge they are indeed Norwegian, the same Husqvarna used in the 80's only the color was "champagne/goldish".I love the fact that the rimstickers are still on both rims
The bike came the registrationpapers from the first owner also the ownersmanual and a partsmanual.
The first owner bought the bike when he was about 57 years of age and rode it a few times then got caught by police, jailed, got a big fine then for him the fun was over, he put the bike in his barn with 880 km on the speedometer and never got it out again.
The second owner had no room in his shed, so it was left outside, with discoloration of all the plastics and seat, although the bike was in a nice technical state
I bought it because, i knew this particular bike wich the first owner gave me the change to test it in april 1991, this came to light when i called the second owner to get some information about the bike's history
Sa far soo good, with one exception, i'am still waiting, for 5 months now, for the much wanted stickerset

Grtz Rens

p.s.De kers op de taart, AKA, icing on the cake

Hey Kristleifur,
The peanut in the cookie? De pinda in het koekje?
Never heard that one before
Is this one of the famous Icelandic sayings?

I Ride:
I got it 'new' in March 1998. It was a demonstrator that had done maybe 20 hrs, mostly the Oz 4 Day Enduro. The inlet valve seats broke up early in its life so that had to be sorted, including a Wiseco HC piston. Sort of done under warranty at the time. Since then, the Sparks is its 3rd stator. I let the cam follower bearings go a bit far and paid the price of a new camshaft. Switched at the time from Mobil 1 to Delo 400 and the replacement followers have almost tripled the originals' life.

The FCR with Taff's jetting base sorted the recalcitrant Dellorto, and hopefully the Sparks stator is its last. The suspension has been dialed to suit me, as have the ergos.

Its a bit smokey now when cold, and likely rattlier than when new, but still goes great. Mostly stored, but gets a couple of outings a year, but no more than 10 hrs a year since I got my FE650. And I have plenty of other 2 wheel toys too, like SY250, DR650, and XT1200Z.

Its bottom end, including clutch, is original which I reckon is amazing. Its not been babied, and has been raced MX and enduro for a few years, and lots and lots of gnarly trail riding in between and since.

Pics here FWIW:

These pics were all in the gallery in years gone by, but the gallery hasn't worked for me for a long time.

Does the link work for you?

I also have a 19 litre big tank for it, which is for sale if anyone is interested.

Thanks from bushmechanic and rens bos
