Post-Listing Update: Despite being relisted a couple of times, this Sprint did not meet reserve.
The Aermacchi 350 Sprint was part of a joint venture with Harley-Davidson, created when H-D bought 50% of Aermacchi to help them compete in the small bike market. Originally a 250cc, the bike was also offered as a 350cc which had success in GP racing – including 3 years in a row where they took 4 of the top 10 spots in the Isle of Man Junior TT.
The 344cc engine produced 25 horsepower, pushing the Sprint up to 92 miles per hour. Weight was about 330 pounds wet, and the original MSRP was $795. If you want more information, check out this article from Motorcycle Classics about how this tiny Italian Harley was better than most people expect.
This specific Aermacchi 350 Sprint (VIN: 67SS11865) has been turned into a ‘road racer’, and enjoy as a rebuilt motor (work done by Feruccio (Frank) Giannini of Giannini Racing). It also comes with PVL electronic ignition, a dry clutch, upgraded cam, and 11:5 pistons.

Interestingly enough, the seller himself notes that this bike was sold at Mecum Las Vegas last month (where you can easily tell the purchase price was $7,000). I’d love to know what he’s done in the last month that justifies a $2k price increase.
