Husky 501 Rally Project
« on: March 31, 2021, 11:34:04 am »
Hey all ... I'm going to be documenting my 501 Rally build. We are going to develop the build focused on the 501 platform, using where possible and appropriate Husky parts. If there are no husky parts available, then we either look to make our own or source locally.

We are also going to be covering a wide range of topics during the build:

Suspension
Fuel and fuel range
Wiring
Lighting
Comfort (pegs, seat, handle bars)
Steering damper
Tyres and wheels
Protection
Tools to carry and carry options
Modifications

First vid .... the unboxing.
