Husqvarna Bicycle Stockholm Survivor

The Bicycle Safari has had a bit of a revamp! What do you think? Let me know if it all looks broken to you! Once you've finished having a poke around why not take a gander at this old Husqvarna bicycle sitting in the rain on the streets of Stockholm.

A lovely text of the Husqvarna logo for the seat tube.

A bit of a ratty badge up front.

But overall a pretty nice looking sensible steel framed bike for an abusive life on the streets of the Swedish capital. This particular one seems to a civilian version of the old style Swedish military bicycle that is still massively popular with people in Sweden. Husqvarna were involved in their production in the past (although completely out of bike making now) and if you have a look around their website here you can have a look at some of their old bicycle adverts from the 50's, great stuff!

  1. Scandinavians just know style. Even their 60 year old rusty bicycles look classy!

    PS- did you know that if you type "husqvarna" and "bicycle" into google that this site is the #2 result?
