Husqvarna, best in show at BristolHusqvarna 180 546cc, best in show at Bristol, February 2013. Owned by Rodney Hann
The Bristol Best in Show award went to Rodney Hann's 546cc Husqvarna 180. Rodney carried out a full restoration between 2002-04. The frame, V-twin engine and gearbox are Husqvarna's own manufacture. Husqvarna is one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers, as it started making motorcycles in 1903.

This bike was brought to England around 1970 but never used. It was taken in part exchange for a Rover machine wanted by a Swedish enthusiast. It was advertised for sale in 2000 and I was the first person to respond, and luckily a deal was done. The machine was virtually complete and in good condition and all tinware was sound, but the bike needed a full restoration.
