The 1968 season Ake had a great chance to become 500cc World Champion.

 

In mid season when Paul Friedrichs broke his collarbone Ake had a big points lead, but luck failed and Ake got pointsless both in St. Anthonis (round 10) and in Namur (round 11), due to lack of routin and machinery problems.


Below is Ake´s factory Husqvarna 422cc he rode in the 1968 grand prix series.
One big specialties is the gas tank, Ake had a thinner and paded tank, no other Husqvarna factory rider had that.
