Description: Husky decided to enter the 500cc World Championship for the 1960 season. Husqvarna designed their bike around the Albin 500 single. The front forks were Norton Roadholders and the rear shocks were Girlings. Bill Nilsson and Rolf Tibblin were to ride the bikes. Nilsson getting the preferred support. In the 500 GP season, Nilsson won the 1960 500cc World Championship, defeating Sten Lundin and his Monark by one point. Rolf Tibblin took a respectable third. Tibblin later won the 1962 and 63 World Championship on the Albin 500 single. I think only thirteen works Husqvarna Albin 500s were made, and none were sold to the public.
