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:

  • Good grief- this thing is absolutely horrible!

  • What an odd little crate.

  • I should probably follow up with something sensible:

    I want to like this, I really do. The acute seat-back on the tail section, however, is comical, and the scrambler tires are a total WTF for me. When you add the Sportster-takeoff tank, it’s just too unreal to fathom.

  • [Simon Cowell] TERRIBLE!!! [/Simon Cowell]

  • Recently attended the AHRMA race down at Barber and these little Aermacchi’s were a crowd favorite. The old four strokes sounded amazing….you folks that find these types ugly should really take up some history searches of what and where your sport came from….and get involved?? http://dev.ahrma.org/

  • I can’t speak for anybody else, but my first experience riding was on a BSA Gold Star. I think I have enough history to know what I like or not. Just sayin’. 🙂

  • @Nedragr:
    Take another look- this isn’t one of the Aermacchi four stroke horizontal singles. It’s based on a TWO STROKE enduro bike! Hardly the “historic machines the sport came from.” OOPS!

  • Tell that to Crussel running the AHRMA series using an old 350 bighorn and making it work?? I read the post and knew it was a 2 stroke enduro trying to live a life in vintage road racing…..
