This 1974 Husqvarna 250 Mag is built with modifications to enhance performance and handling that are reminiscent of the “works” bikes that were built in the 1970’s. However, the Bullet build went several steps further.
At the top of the list of modifications made to enhance the performance of the Bullet compared to the works bikes of the 1970’s would be in the weight. The original factory specs for the 1974 250 Husqvarna bikes weighs in at approximately 225 pounds. The Bullet barley tips the scale at an incredible light weight of 183 pounds race ready weight! This sliming down was done by modifications to the frame, engine, and suspension
Careful engineering and planning went into drilling out the excessive bulk in the steal frame shedding off unneeded and unwanted pounds while still maintaining the structural integrity of the frame. Unnecessary brackets were removed freeing up additional pounds. Meticulous calculations were done on the engine to remove excess bulk. Along with replacing all the screws, washers, nuts, and bolts to titanium, trimmed off additional slowing down weight but still providing speed and durability to win. Ceramic coated engine and wheel bearings keep the bike going with reliability and top performance
From Noleen rear shocks to the all-aluminum triple tree, steering stem, forks, spacers and valves being aluminum, to the front and rear axles being a new aerospace grade aluminum, every detail has special attention being paid to remove excessive weight, to increase the winning advantage by being light weight
No detail has been overlooked including the wheels that have no bead locks, but instead have titanium screws. Researching the market for the lightest wheel, tire, and tubes, coming up with a quality Dunlop tire that grips providing full control for the rider through the corners. We duplicated the brake stay arm in aluminum and modified a section of the back portion of the frame to aluminum taking away from the burden of the overweight vintage bikes
To continue with a trim overall physic, Dave Miller at Dave Miller Concepts provided a pipe that weighs in at only 2.5 pounds, while still providing astonishing results when shifting through all six gears obtaining max torque and performance Making sure to cover every angle of the bike, we consulted with John LeFevre at Vintage Husky and with his guidance built the ultimate competitive light weight bike. Paying special attention to the unsprung weight, creating superior control and handling. Providing the perfect engine with the right mix of power and then dialing in the jetting to the Bing Carburetor Allowing this lightweight bike to launch at the start line for the hole shot, fly over jumps, with a shift in leg position, rotate then land in full control, and glide through corners like no other vintage dirt bike can.
The 2019 race season consisted of R&D testing in practice and races by expert 250 rider, Micah Davis. Putting the Bullet through the test in several big-name races in So Cal and finishing strong as a front runner. Micah says, “the Bullet has amazing handling characteristics, the biggest thing I notice is the way it handles in the corners and in the air compared to other vintage bikes, it’s so light. I can truly put this motorcycle exactly where I want it, with no hesitation, knowing that it will do exactly what I need it to do.”
We are confident that the Bullet with these advanced modified enhancements will be at top performance and provide many more podium finishes. We are looking forward to the full race season of 2020 and shooting the Bullet into a full-scale assault on the race series in Southern California
