The movie “On Any Sunday” is carefree. It is a motorcycle documentary, but mostly contains dramatic scenes. Shadows of the Devil make appearances when actors do wheelies as easy as any of us eat breakfast. Divine Husqvarna ambassadors like Steve McQueen and Malcolm Smith show ambition that go along with a free spirit.
After the 1960 season things looked gloomy for the Husqvarna Motorcycle division. The company had won the 500cc world championship, but in the quarter-litre class the situation was different. No research and development were done to the smaller power plants and no factory sponsoring was available for keen 250cc riders who wanted to conquer the world. As the “Silverpilen” street Huskys did not sell any longer there were low-key factors as well as new hope for ace rider Torsten Hallman. He seemed to be stepping up the ladder in the European championship.
