Italo-American GP Machine: 1977 Harley-Davidson RR250 for Sale

1977 Harley Davidson 250GP L Front

Today's Harley-Davidson RR250 may be new to most of you. We don't get the opportunity to feature Harley-Davidson motorcycles on this site too often, unless we're talking about throbbing pushrod v-twins hiding in quirky Buells. And all the "boat-anchor" jokes aside, Harley has plenty of racing heritage, although mostly outside of what interests most of us: roadracing. But back in the 1970's, Harley took advantage of its partial ownership of small-bore specialist Aermacchi to mount a successful Grand Prix racing program.

1977 Harley Davidson 250GP R Side

These bikes were basically a pair of Yamaha dirt bike engines welded up, and that kept running costs very reasonable and should make parts relatively easy to source today. The resulting motorcycle was actually lighter than the Yamaha's TZ machines and proved to be very competitive: starting in 1973, Harley-badged Aermacchi two-stroke parallel twins won three 250cc championships in a row, and bikes were raced as late as 1978.

The listing is obviously very spare, and doesn't tell us much about the bike. Does it run, or is it intended as a display piece? If it's an "ex-official machine," were there any notable riders or successes?

The bike is located in Rimini, Italy, but that's no surprise, since there weren't too many opportunities for these bikes to race in the US. And since it's never going to be registered for road use, importing it shouldn't be too difficult. Regardless, it looks like it's in excellent physical shape, so collectors can be sure it'll look great displayed in your living room.

Mutually Exclusive? 1975 Harley Davidson RR250 Racer

RR250_1

Put the words "racer" and "HD" together in a sentence and visions of dirt tracking will likely come to mind. If road racing jumped into your head, it was likely a smokey failure or a Buell - or both. Truth be told, The Motor Company's history with sport bikes and racing same has been a pretty consistent catastrophe (to put it kindly). However it was not always this way. There was a short time in history when HD owned a stake (and from 1974 - 1978 outright as AMF) the Aermacchi brand. Aermacchi was an Italian aircraft builder that branched out into motorcycles post WWII. Offering small two strokes (including race bikes like the one pictured), Aermacchi was to be the small bike direction of AMF HD moving forwards. Success was was not to be found in smaller displacement models, and HD divested itself of its satellite brands (including Aermacchi and DKW) to focus on the big iron. This survivor of that AMF era claims to have Daytona racing history and would look great in any bike collection.

When Harley made racing bikes – Aermacchi HD 350 in Italy

Between 1960 and 1978 Harley Davidson controlled first and owned later, an Italian firm in the area of Varese. This wasn't MV Agusta which eventually was also owned (for a very short time though) by HD.  Instead, it was called Aermacchi. Just like MV Agusta, also Aermacchi used to be in the aerospace business.  After the war, the company started to produce motorbikes that turned out to be very successful on the race tracks giving Harley Davidson a few world championship titles in the 250 and 350 cc categories.

Here we have a modern cafe racer/scrambler interpretation of a 1978 AMF HD 350 2 stroke powered bike:

The bike is on sale on eBay and located in Italy. the starting price is 2100 Euro (about 2700 $). Shipping is offered across Europe for an extra 400 Euro and the bike will be delivered by pallet.

The seller describes the bike in good condition and like its motor:

AMF Harley Davidson HD 350 cc epoca 1978. Motore ottime condizioni,come pure tutto il resto. Spedizione in italia 190 euro. International shipping europa cost 400 euro. Per qualsiasi informazione basta chiedere. Invio altre foto guarda il video su youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIhONxusiRw&feature=youtu.be 

He also includes a video as a proof of that:

Ring A Ding HD: 1976 Harley Davidson 250RR (Aermacchi)

Ring A Ding HD:  1976 Harley Davidson 250RR (Aermacchi)

 

Volley balls and two strokes:  the 70's were an interesting time for AMF Harley Davidson.  It is kind of easy to joke and poke fun but at least HD was dabbling in racing/sport bikes which is more than can be said nowadays.  Buell barely survived their fumbling and bumbling last year.  KTM should not be the only racing orange out there.  Looking through the secured and encrypted RSBFS files it looks like we've featured more 35o than 250 road racers from HD.

 

As you may know, these are HD's with an asterisk.  There wasn't a top secret HD two stroke development arm but instead they came off the design table at Aermacchi in Italy.  In fact, HD bought a 50 percent stake in the company.  I had trouble finding how many 250's brought to the States; anyone know the actual number?

 

Mmm, naked is good.  I've seen several bikes come out of this work shop and they all have looked top notch.  Here is a little example.

Here is the story on his current listing:

This is a older rebuild I purchased 2 years ago for my collection. I have done the rebuild on some of the parts, such as all the hydraulics on the Scarab front calipers and master cyl. Also replaced the rear drum brake with the correct replica as the bike was missing the drum brake and was fitted with a Disc. The engine top end looks new, but I did not split the casses. All feels good and everything turns free.

Bike will come with Bill of Sale only. Please ask any question you may have and I will try and answer them.
The bike is very clean and shows well. A nice addition for a race collection, asssss only 20 of these 250`s were imported into the US.
I have the original Manual for this bike with all the settings as last raced.

 

 

That shock/swing arm setup almost looks dated for 1978.  It couldn't have been too dated as works rider Walter Villa won three world championships on the 250.  Not that this bike needs it but it looks like Airtech makes replacement bodywork for this bike.  No end cans needed in those days.

 

 

Is the seller tempting us because the vintage festival is coming up at Barber Motorsports Park this month?  If not, I just gave you a reason to throw in a bid.

 

Here is the auction.
