A 1975 Harley-Davidson Aermacchi Restoration Project

In October of . my girlfriend spotted this old AMF HD SX250 enduro at a yard and sent me a text message a picture saying I see something gonna like. Yes, she me well! When I first saw the I thought it was just an old Japanese that somebody put Harley on. Then I thought, if somebody was make a fake Harley why would they make it an AMF era as the tank decals indicated!

I did a search on my phone and read the history lesson from about the Aermacchi years of I needed to head over to yard sale and see this in person!

It was in non-running, but in overall pretty condition. All the pictures on this are as-is when I purchased. with my limited knowledge at the about these Aermacchi the asking price of $500 like a pretty damn deal to me. The tank was a rusted inside.

Tires a little dry Wiring needs work. intact except for turn and the stop on the lower triple was broken which caused the to dent into the tank. It had the ridiculous kick stand I saw.

I thought the kick was bent or broken, it looked it was nearly laying on the ground on the stand! The previous owner me that’s the way it’s supposed to be. I have since seen seem to confirm this to be I guess in areas of unlevel it makes sense

The previous owner did a half Bondo putty job on the dents in the and a slightly mis-matched paint but I still saw potential. I figured if I couldn’t get it running (I was mostly at the time of purchase because the wasn’t disengaging when the was pulled in. After fluid and tank sealing and I got it up and running, the loosened right up after all years of sitting.

I was relieved I took my chances when I it and it wasn’t something serious!), it was in darn good condition for a and at $500 I figured the parts had to be that even if I couldn’t get it The fact that this was an Italian made bike the 70’s and that most People back then and still today seem to to accept it as a Harley-Davidson. this made me want it even :)

This bike has plenty of It’s quick and light and is a to ride. It smokes like a burning plant though it’s been run for a bit!

I it’s the nature of the 2 … and bike in particular, but I’m check out the oil pump and throttle adjustments next just to sure things are working on the mixture end. Not sure how I about the reliability of the whole 2-cycle oil tank, dual cable and oil pump design on bike. Think I’d better knowing I mixed the ratio myself in the gas tank, but it is it is.

At first site . my 5yr old son told me the coolest bike ever and he wait until he’s old to get his driving card so it can be his! I the smile in this pic says it all Too bad there wasn’t this enthusiasm for the old SX series back in the

OK so on with the reason this exists .

When I started the search for parts, I was actually surprised to so many New Old Stock parts floating around out there. the fact that this wasn’t a huge success it orignally came out has made parts nearly 40 years relatively easy. They necessarily always cheap, but are reasonable deals to be found.

part numbers are essential it comes to tracking down parts. I found it difficult to any FREE resources in regards to the catalog or even just the service and owners manuals for bike. Once I got my hands on I decided to throw together webpage.

As lame as the content on page is for now. I at the very wanted to help out others in quest to restore this old spewing 2 …!
