Sorry to be anal Stew, but I dispute you claim.

This is the real original, using a modified Husky frame;

But the one in your picture is definitely no show pony like most modern replica going by the dings in the front rim.

The Question for you is; Can you name the people?

Give it a guess...totally...Torsten Hallman, Bengt Aberg, Sten Lundin, ...Eneqvist???..how did I do?

That was one of the pics from a Two Wheels article many years back (...got it here somewhere)...the bike was supposedly just what I said as I recall...works YZ forks and all...Pro Fab frame???

Must build one one day! Got the tanks and the swingarm and an engine...forks somewhere...etc...

You got them, in order from Left to Right - Torsten Hallman, Sten Lundin, "The Man" himself Bengt Aberg, Staffan Eveqvist.

The first few "works" HL's were built in the US by Profab, from memory there were only 3 or 5 built. Profab then made a small run of Repilca.

This is one of the Profab HL500's
Image

As you know Stew, I build my Aberg replica back in the early '80's using the rolloing chassis of my 78 Husky.

Image

When I pulled the Yamaha engine out and put the Husky engine back in a few years ago I bought another 1978 Husky frame to rebuild the Aberg on. I have just about everthing I need to build it it up, I just need to find a suitable swingarm and seat, plus the time and a bit or spare money.

Darn fine looking machines!

Might force myself to go and get a frame from Vic in a while...sigh...is there no end to this madness...

Wonder what triple clamps they use...might try to find some H model ones (YZ) to suit the forks I have here...don't wan't it any higher than the Pro Fab one suspension wise or they start looking a little unusual...heh, heh...

SR ;)

The front end that I used on my Husky - Aberg when I originally built it was from YZ465G (I actually bought the whole front end new from my local Yamaha dealer).

The Profab HL pictured would have been built in 77/78 or there abouts, and the bottom of the forks don't go down below the axle as much as the G model forks on my bike, so I would thing that the forks and triple clamps would have been from the YZ that was current at the time (D or E model).

Yes, I wonder how many D or E front ends would be any good these days!

I still have these forks lying around...
