Anaheim Husqvarna

This is a shot of a small shop trading by the name of Anaheim Husqvarna.

On our first US MX pilgrimage in 1980, my father and I did the rounds, visiting all the famous companies that we had seen in MXA – Fox, JT, DG, Wheelsmith, FMF etc. Amazing really. We just knocked on people’s doors saying ‘Hi, we’re over from the UK and think you’re really cool. Can we have a look around?’

They were all very welcoming.

This place, Anaheim Husqvarna, as all you hardened MX history buffs will know, was Mitch Payton’s first business and the forerunner to the Pro Circuit empire.
