Lindstrom Motocross

A Brief History of the Marque

Göte Lindström built motocross machines in Malmö, Sweden between 1961 and 1966.

Powered by Husqvarna engines.


L-Qvarna 236cc 1961
Lindström 246cc 1964
Lindström 246cc 1965
Lindström 352cc 1965

Göte also built a two-stroke engine for use in speedway machines, but the rules were changed to disallow two-strokes before the project could reach fruition. At least one complete Lindstrom speedway machine exists.

There are several examples of the Lindstrom at the Gyllene Hjulet Museum

From the 1965 catalogue:
