Industrial revolution - they expanded to sewing machines, chain saws, shot guns, rifles, shot gun/rifle combo, and motorcycles. They had a V-Twin road bike in the late 1890's and great dirt bikes in the 1960's and 70's, also the best industrial sewing machines ever.
    Sadly, 1983 was the last year for anything real Husky from Sweden. Oldest manufacture on earth succumb to the investment whores of Wall Street. Cagiva bought the name and made shitty motorcycles. Then the Husky maquie became part of a big investment conglomerate along with Ducati, MV Agusta, and many others. Most things with Husqvarna name today is made by Poulan.
    The Husky logo is mistaken for a crown on top of a circle. It is actually guns sights as looking down the barrel of a gun.
