I have two of them...  yours has the "snake pipe" which means it's a higher VIN for 76 or someone installed the 76-1/2 pipe. 

The black air filter cover was a 77 model feature...  other than than yours looks like a 76.  That tiny muffler is very rare so don't toss it. 

Rear fender is probably broken because it's a very quick, light bike...  easy to loop over backwards if you grab a handful of throttle and the rear tire grabs traction, even at higher speeds.

Yours is a 1976...  the 76-1/2 models I personally know came with that pipe originally were above frame number 11500.  But I have no idea when the change was made... with your frame in the 10,000 range it easily could have come with that pipe.  Mid-year 1976 250CR was the first Husky to come from factory without the classic Husky side pipe.   New pipe was reportedly designed by a young Husky engineer by the name of Ohlins...  who went on to design shocks. 

If you need cables you might find the ones people sell are not quite right...  but you can modify new ones sold to fit.  It was a transition bike with some of the new ideas (like front wheel with brake on left) that made it to the 77 models.  Air filter cover is not original which is strange because it looks like rest of bike is.

Be careful with kick starter.  Crap design.  it hits shifter as a "stop" at bottom of travel which beats the hell out of shift shaft bushing in case and can break case.  1978 kick start lever is much better but hard to find.

DO NOT remove kick shaft from splines without marking and researching!  It is a pain to install and time correctly.  If you don't install it right you will blow the case cover to hell. Cover can be removed with kick start and shifter left in place.  They come off with cover.
