The husky XC500 is a rare bike even here in scandinavia, cool project man, keep us updated and good luck finding parts for it.

maybe parts from an husky CR500 from the same year would fit? the CR are the pure MX machines and the XC are something closer to an offroader with a wide-ratio gearbox I think, (correct me if I am wrong)

no wonder really, I don't think they made the big-bore 2 stroke for more than a few years before they stopped production in favour of the 4 strokes, the biggest husky 2 stroker in the 90's was the 360 I think?

I think you have to dig deep to find parts for this, have you tried to contact any dealers? maybe try to find an forum devoted entirely to husqvarna?

here is one for sale on Ebay, maybe you could contact the seller and ask him where to get parts and such?

Just got this bike and there is no dipstick, oil level window or marks and no weep hole I can find. No Oil Capacity Embossed on Case either. Does the guy with the XC500 have similiar and can you help me out? Where do I fill the Oil too?
Know where I can find a manual? I have searched and no luck...Thanks..Gary
