I Ride: 1991 Husaberg 350 FE
Hi Pontus!
I am doing the Husaberg written stencil for the 1990-1991 blue seat cover. I will make my seat cover first and if it works I will make some new stencil on e-bay.
I took the right dimensions of the logo from my well preserved and original seat cover.
For the copies of old stickers it's not as simple as I thought. I need more time to obtain a perfect result. I will let you know!
Tommy

Hi Tommy,

Sorry for my late reaction, I've been very busy since the last time.
Thanks for your compliment, regarding my FE 501 it's indeed a looker.
Concerning the stickerset it should be for a '91 model that was Original on it.
I am still arguing with a guy who promised to make a '89 style stickerset but again there's complete ''radio silence''
About the color i think that there is only one color blue used from'89 till '91.
I know that Acerbis made a lighter blue for Maico in '86 till '90 also the Elba,Baja,Trophy butt this is really a different blue.
I haven't seen the blue used on Yamaha IT models,i think it's also lighter blue?
As for plastic parts for the pre '93 models ? it's nearly impossible to get NOS, if so you get scared about the prices they will ask.
If you get an example for the stickerset please let me know i am also interested.

Grtz Rens

@Happier nice berg you have thanks for the entry

Newb, loving the site, and I'm learning a lot very quickly.

I'm wondering if anybody with a pre 97 berg can tell me about plastic compatibility?
Will 94-96, 600 ( or fc400 etc) number plates fit my 95 fe 501?
I'd like to bring it back to it's glory.
I have found some used plastics with graphics but I don't know if they will fit.

A wealth of information here, and I'm thankful to all who help keep these old scoots alive.

Thanks from zaga and rens bos

@Happier nice berg you have thanks for the entry
Hi Rens!
Thank you for your reply about the color. Also a Swiss collector of pre-KTM Husaberg bikes confirmed me that the blue up to 1991 was only one. In the same year the first yellow fender appeared on the Jimmy Ericsson replica bikes (attached picture).
Here a sample of my 1991 right panel, my frame year letter is "M".
If your bike is 1990, frame letter "L", probably the stickers are the same of 1989. In the attached picture of an unsold 1990 French bike very well preserved (except for the faded blue color) you can see it, the bike number is 203, produced in 1990. What is the final number of your bike?

Hi Tommy,

My FE 501 has the letter L and the number ends with 239.
All the markings, like on the plastic and rims, are dated 11-'89.
If you check out some pictures in this topic you can see the date on the rim.
As for the NOS FE 501 it's not faded this particular bike is really new but because of the sun it looks faded but it isn't.
The sticker that is on your side panel is the same that was original on mine too.

I uploaded some pictures of the old ''party animal''

Hi Rens,
thank you for your reply!
Are you the first owner of the bike? When I bought my bike I found front and rear fenders in yellow, the previous owner has had difficulty to find the blue plastics replacement.
I agree with you, the influence of the sun on plastic colors can mislead. Please view a picture of two of mine preserved parts, the headlight (dated '90) and the rear fender (dated '91), both new unused and under the same light, the color is clearly different.

Hey Tommy,

Well as fore the history of this particular Husaberg, no i am not the first owner.
But the first owner i knew him, because i got the chance to test this bike in 1990 when he was riding near a mx track.
The first owner named Klaas Tasma was caught by the police in 1990 got fined bigtime and lost fun in riding, this meant that the Husaberg was put in the shed with only 880 km on it

the second owner, the guy from wich i bought the bike, had no place to put the bike in a shed and to leave outside so the seat and the plastics on the bike discoulered very badly, but is now really nice to see.
The bike came with the original owners manual and parts catalogue, also the registration papers from the two previous owners are also with it, so it's really nice documentated.
Youre right light and colours can play tricks on you

Grtz Rens
Thanks from Tommy74

So guys, show them to the forum members and the visitors of this site.
My 1990 FE 501 is restored now, except for the original decals.

So "lets hear it" for the old Bergs.

Hi Bergmeister,

Well the plastic is original, i just cleaned it very good
New old stock is very hard to get and very expensive, so cleaning it pays off.
