I can't really remember another bike in the past 5 years that has created as much media stir as the Husqvarna Vitpilen 701. From the initial concepts to the final production machine there has always glowing praise for the Swedish …Even though it seems like a lifetime ago since these concepts were first released, seeing these bike in the flesh still still manage to bring out that initial excitement.
Finished up this build at the end of the year, with this being my only ride I was pretty happy to finally get it back on the road. Think I'll spend some time riding this around now over summer, with …Beta-MAX named after the Video Cassette player of the same name.
I had the original intention of documenting this build on video but as it turns out doing this requires charged batteries and new memory cards. Two things that I didn't have at the time I started working on the bike.
