New Swm

Recommended Posts

Hey guys what is up. As you can probably tell I am new here. I just picked up a 1973 SWM RS250 MC and i dont know a thing about them. But i am hoping you guys can help. The bike is in really ruff shape right now. I have been told that it runs but it doesnt have a kicker and as of right now he thought the coil or the plug were bad. Were do you guys get parts for these bikes. I would like to try and restore to as close to original as i can. down to frame color( I think it was orange). so if you guys could help me out here. I am mechanicaly inclined and have a background in bikes . I just dont know anything about this bike. Thanks again any help will be greatly apreciated.

Chris

Better picture would help identify it.....the forks look wrong for a start (look like early Husqvarna)

That's waaay later than a '73. Martin '77/'78? Exhaust looks good.

Raptor MartinM has a very clean model of similar vintage. Nice article in classic off-road mag on it.

Hi Chris

Thats a 78 RS250MC you have there, it should look like this.

It has been fitted with a front end from a very early Husqvarna, but whats there seems salvageable. I got your email, and will let you know which parts are easy to obtain.

Cheers

Martin, those triple clamps were used surprising late ('76 ish) by Husqvarna. I have a pic of Malcolm Smiths ISDT Husky with very similar looking triple clamps.
