Husqvarna is the oldest motorcycle manufacturer in existence, founded originally as a weapons company.

Husqvarna's motorcycle production began in 1903, making the Swedish company the oldest continually produced motorcycle brand in the business. Like almost every motorcycle manufacturer, Husqvarna began its two-wheeled production as a builder of bicycles, as far back as 1896.


In 1920, the company launched its own engine-building factory, delivering its initial design with a 550cc side valve four-stroke V-twin. The Husqvarna engine was designed by Folke Mannerstedt.

Racing improves the breed, and so it was for Husqvarna in the 1920s and 1930s. Long associated with the International Six Days Trials event and off-road motorcycling in general, Husqvarna also competed in Grand Prix motorcycling and in the Isle of Man TT.


With the model 200 a comprehensive modernization of the latest bike version with the 550cc engine was made. The changes of the exterior were a modernized fuel tank and several chrome plated details such as handlebar, spokes, exhaust pipe, silencer and the magneto drive cover.



This nicely restored Husqvarna Model 200 is a very rare and unique piece of the Husqvarna motorcycle history, as the Model 200 was only produced for three years between 1931-1933.

The number of delivered motorcycles were only around 150.

The presented motorcycle is fitted with a 550 cc side valve V-twin engine, three speed own manufactured gearbox by Husqvarna, Amal carburettor and Bosch electric lighting system (with an original Bosch TS150 headlamp).
Lubrication of the engine is provided by a Best-Lloyd mechanical oil pump, braking is concluded through drum- and band brakes at the rear wheel. Further equipments include Bosch electric horn, steering damper on the handlebar, toolboxes and battery carrier.

The Husqvarna has been restored with an excellent paint finish with the typical green a cream colours of the Model 200, the machine is in a good mechanical condition and it is in running order.
