Revival Turns The Svartpilen 401 Into A Bare Metal & Wire-Clad Scrambler Moto

Since breaking cover at EICMA a few years ago, the Husqvarna Svartpilen and Vitpilen models have been praised as some of the most groundbreaking aesthetic designs in recent motorcycle history, with a Scandinavian and highly-unique neo-retro take on urban-focused two-wheelers. So, needless to say, managing to modify and visually improve one of the Huskies is no easy feat, though few are better equipped to do the KTM-powered model justice other than Texas-based custom moto outfit, Revival Cycles, which have transformed the single-cylinder Husky into a bare metal-clad street scrambler.

Working under a customer’s requested theme of “raw metal brutalism,” the 401 was stripped down to the frame and built back up with all-new custom bodywork with a large belly-pan, a front tire hugger, and a smooth single-piece tank and side plates combo. Doing away with the ultra-pronounced knee notches on the stock fuel cell, the custom bodywork is topped off with custom wire luggage racks, plus there’s a matching wire-constructed heat-shield shrouding the build’s new one-off exhaust. Knobby tires, aftermarket lighting and bars, and a custom headlight guard complete this beautifully-executed equation.
