In the late 1920s Husqvarna's motorcycles were influenced by contemporary English, French and American models. The Model 180 was manufactured from 1927 to 1929 with few changes. It was a basic motorcycle which could withstand the poor Swedish road conditions with "efficient and well-protective splash screens". In April 1927 this machine was delivered to a soldier, "1367 Gustafsson" and has survived 25-30,000 miles over many years of service.
Model 180 was called the "solo-sportmodellen". It was fitted with Bosch magneto and generator, and a Schebler carburettor model H. The electric Bosch headlight is from 1928. The engine is a sidevalve 550 cc V-Twin delivering 12 hp at 4,200 rpm, It has a three-speed gearbox. Tyres: Front 28x3, Rear 29x3
