Husqvarna 256 Thage

6/5/4 Motors is a Stockholm based workshop that builds customised motorcycles. Their latest creation is this cool conversion of a rare (only a thousand were ever produced) Husqvarna 256, a bike that was developed in 1968 specifically for the Swedish defense force. Named "Thage” the original bike was fitted with longer shocks, new drum brakes, new exhaust system, knobby tires, a small Bates-style headlight, a small LED tail light, and a new lick of paint, from the tank right down to the frame, engine and wheels. Oh, and it actually comes with skis, for winter adventures and tackling the slopes!
