One of the rarest bikes ever built by Harley-Davidson, the MT500 was originally built by the British in the 80s. Rights to the design 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 example (VIN: 1HD4RLS12YY000107) has just 15 miles and is said to “run and operate as its supposed to.” The seller states that it’s #158 though I don’t remember these being serialized beyond the VIN. It presents well in the photos, comes with all the accessory cases, and it has the original warning decals as well.
