Bikes: Husqvarna FC450 Flat Tracker

2 years ago | Words: Bike EXIF | Photos: Patrick Evans

Who doesn’t like a cross-collaboration project? This project between Husqvarna and Suicide Machine Company is seriously rad. The crew at Bike EXIF got in contact with the builders of this epic flat tracker, to giving us an insight into the mods and the high-quality componentry on this machine.

Even if you’re not into flat track, you have to love the style of the machines! The most high profile ‘Twins’ – the Harley-Davidson XG750R and the championship-winning Indian FTR750.

In reality, the Twins are far removed from any showroom v-twins. But the 450cc Singles class is occupied by modified motocrossers that are relatively close to production spec. And this Husqvarna FC450, we’d venture to say, is the best-looking racer of all.

It’s from Suicide Machine Company of Long Beach, California, an outfit run by brothers Aaron and Shaun Guardado. They’re famous for high-performance builds that live up to the company motto: “Fast Loud Deathproof.”

“Husqvarna approached us for a build to showcase their latest model, the FC450,” says Aaron. “They’ve got a strong racing heritage, and given our involvement with flat track, it seemed like a perfect match.” – Suicide Machine Company
