Post Sale Update: This Rapido sold for $3,000 after 48 bids on eBay in Mentor, Ohio.
In 1965, Harley-Davidson bought a 50% stake in the Italian manufacturer Aermacchi, and they proceeded to import small-displacement Italian motorcycles and sell them under the H-D name.
The Rapido featured a 123.5cc air-cooled two stroke single that pushed 13hp through a 4-speed transmission – enough to get the 250 lb motorcycle to about 70 miles per hour.
This example (VIN: 7A10698H1) has 972 miles, and it’s said to “run and ride great.” It has a new battery and a recent carb rebuild. The seller states that everything works and the sale includes the original key and owner’s manual. Find this Rapido for sale in Mentor, Ohio with bidding up to $2,075 and the reserve met here on eBay.
