Post-Sale Update: This Harley Davidson HD MT500 sold for $8,111.11 after 40 bids on eBay.
This HD MT500 is one of the rarest bikes to ever come out of the HD factory, and we’re huge suckers for it at Bike-urious. Originally built by the British in the 80s, rights to this bike were sold by Armstrong-CCM to HD, who sold just 355 copies of the MT500 in 1999, and a few more the following year. Only select HD dealerships were allowed to sell these bikes. Some raffled the bikes off, with proceeds going to the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation, others were sold between $10-11.5k, depending on if you got luggage and/or one of the greatest options ever available on a motorcycle – a mounted gun case for a M16 rifle. These bikes had both an electric start and a kick start – note that the kicker is on the left side. This specific HD MT500 unfortunately does not come with the luggage or gun case, but it does come with only 78 miles on the odo. This bike is number 95 out of the 355 made in ’99, and was purchased from a dealer who had the bike in storage for the last 13 years. The bike seems to be in great shape, with one exception. The original steel tank has some pinholes, but ti’s been replaced with an upgraded plastic tank from Force Motorcycles. FM is the definitive source for HD MT500 parts, so if you buy this bike, you’ll want to bookmark their site! This bike also comes with NOS leftover parts, the original tool kit, and the original owner’s manual.
