Description

Up for auction isa 1971 Harley Davidson / Aermacchi Sprint SS 350. This bike was taken down to the frame and rebuilt -- since then it has been ridden around 3000 miles however the engine is fresh. The photo at the end (green bike) ishow this bike looked like when I started rebuilding it. During the rebuild lots of NOS parts were used. Since the bike has some miles on it there are some nicks and a couple places where cables have rubbed but nothing major -- look closely at the photos. I am sure I will miss something in the description so please ask questions.
Engine -- although the bike has around 3k miles since completion the engine is just back from Lancaster Sprints with a fresh rebuild -- less than 100 miles on it runs strong as it always has. Starts in a few kickswhen cold and usually first kick when it is warmed up. This engine has a 5 speed conversion and it also has a knuckle head off a later model bike (for larger exhaust valve). To bump up the displacement a 1mm larger piston was installed during the rebuild and it also has a mild street cam. The exhaust is stainless steel (singlesided)head pipe with a stainless megaphone. The carb is a 30mmDellorto also from a later model bike. 12V mzbelectronicignition.
Wheels -- when the bike was rebuilt (about 3 years ago) the hubs were polished, ew bearings installed and the wheels relaced with stainless spokes and shouldered alloy rims. At this time the brakes were also relined by vintage brake. Tires are Avon roadrider and are in good condition.
Forks -- stock forks were rebuilt with NOS tubes and a smooth upper triple clamp. New sealswere usedBars are clip on.
Seat -- the seat started out as a stock Ducati repop seat that the pan was narrowed on and a custom cover was made for. There are also mounts welded onto the frame to mount the seat as it does not mount in the same manner as the stock one.
Hagon rear shocks
Paint / body work -- the bike was taken down to the bare frame and the frame was powdercoated. All of the other bodywok and tank were wet painted gloss black with ivory details and gold hand pinstripes. The fairing is from Glass from the past as is the front fender. Custom faring mounts were made to mount the fairing.
The rear brake light only operates from the front brake lever and this bike does not have a horn. I have used an electronic speedometer.
The headlight does not have a high and low beam -- not really a bike to ride at night anyway.
