Husqvarna 1931 model “ 50TVA” 500 cc OHV JAP frame# 7X513 engine # KOC / H / 14029 / S
The Husqvarna Vapenfabrik (Husqvarna weapons factory), was founded in 1689 in the town of Huskvarna to produce muskets for the Swedish military.
The company started to produce bicycles at the end of the 19th century and the first motorcycles left the factory in 1903.
The first models were equipped with engines from FN and Moto- Rêve. Later on HVA developed various engines of their own, side valve v-twins being very popular.
By the end of the 1920s the company made a big international breakthrough because of the racing successes of their OHV V-twin models. This sports model is equipped with JAP engine, HVA gearbox, Amal carburettor and Bosch magneto and lighting system. A truly international design one might say; the machine is an older restoration in good condition and it is running smoothly.
