Description

This 1967 Husqvarna 360 Viking Cross completely restored is one of the finest we have seen. Original purchase documentation to Malcolm Smith, 6 time winner of the Baja 1000, and Hall of Fame racer. The Husqvarna Viking was an improved version of the company's earlier 250 Cross models with a lighter one-piece, all-welded frame and improvements to performance and reliability. The Viking was not a peaky racer, but it had terrific low-down torque and an excellent, very usable powerband. Husqvarna had fielded powerful four-stroke MX bikes in the early 1960s, winning the 1963 500cc World Championship with a very special factory single ridden by Rolf Tibblen. The company could see the writing on the wall for big thumpers, though, and then concentrated on a 250 two-stroke racer, developing it into a super light and fast machine that won the 1966 and '67 250cc World Championships. Husqvarna provided five racers to the USA team in the 1967 ISDT in Poland, two 360s and three 250s; Bud Ekins won a Gold on a 360, and Mungenast on a 250.
