1978/79 AMF Harley Davidson / SST 250

This is my (HD) Cagiva SST 250, Euro Not a cafe racer, but the original had a certain flat track / tracker elements straight the factory The bike has not run for the last 8 and I plan to documents details of the SST rebuild.

This (HD) SST250 is a one-owner bike w/ miles since new and has been / unrun for the last 8 years damage). Although it is a HD-Cagiva SST 250, the was first registered Sep 1979, and manufactured end 1978 / early at the Varese factory.

This is interesting as (with the of the tank badge / seat this makes the bike a from AMF, as Cagiva up remaining stocks AMF-HD before the modified / facelifted models arrived in 1980. the exception of the logo on tank / this is a effectively one of the last AMF-HD SST250s w/ Cagiva I am very pleased w/ the find.

Interesting issues re. the bike. (from memory) from my SST 250 and no additional details offered by The muffler is still the chrome and the engine casings are all still AMF-HD. The side plate ha (same as the MX-250s) and the Veglia cluster still says This was later changed to

The front brake is a single Brembo caliper / iron used on Marzocchi forks. A delicate, but effective if used / correctly. The HD-Cagiva SST250 had an assortment of CEV / Guzzi parts bin (such as flip-top gas tank and separate fairings for the headlight.

It has the same Radaelli rims w/ the thin chrome, but these be replaced w/ slightly wider / Takasago.

These SSTs are pretty bikes in restored but (like a lot of Italian machinery) not w/o faults, as these 2-… owners know well. It appear, however, to be a genuine SST 250, which makes it rare 30 years on. I have 2 ea.

SSTs for sale in the USD in the last of years, each likely a import – 1 ea. is stored in a barn as is a rebuild, and 1 ea. for sale in running (but the owner was difficult to with).

Now I have my basket ’76 SS250 in pieces also w/ additional SST pieces sourced eBay Italy. I will use this bike for an SST 250 twin (2 x 125 cc) or SST 350 (2 x 175 cc) w/ modified SS250 frame / Suzuki crankcase w 6 speed). I thought this was the bike should have produced to w/ the Japanese 250-350 market,

Only being a 250, not the biggest bike on the block with some of the other — it’s really not the that matters, but what you do it (at least that is what my always tells me. )
