2001 Husqvarna 570 by Moto Mucci

Years ago David Mucci realized his current career path wasn’t for him. So after some self-discovery, he packed up shop and concentrated his efforts on motorcycle design – eventually starting Moto Mucci, a Portland, OR-based workshop and motorcycle design house pumping out finished projects like this custom Husqvarna 570 dual-sport.

Beautiful in both style and mechanics, this self-prescribed wheelie machine is a lightweight and nimble ride positioned for carving deep canyons and blazing the off-road trails of the Pacific Northwest. For Dave, the Husq 55hp water cooled motor was enough to work with but he knew there was something that needed to be done about the stock looks of the thing. From here, he lowered the bike about 4 inches and loaded it with custom springs, put together a custom subframe, replaced the stock tank with that from a 1973 Husqvarna CR360, and fitted a pair of 17” SM450R wheels wrapped in Shinko 705 tires to the dual-sport. The bike now also boasts a Mishimoto unit in the front for the radiators complete with a stainless guard and two LED lights making the bike look like a futuristic scrambler from another planet. Best news of all? He’s now taking requests for custom builds.
