1967 Harley-Davidson Aermacchi M50

This 1967 Harley-Davidson / Aermacchi M50 was purchased by the seller 5 years ago as part of a package deal with a car and has been used primarily as a decorative piece since. Restored by the previous owner, the bike was in running condition when purchased but the seller has never ridden it and can not vouch for it’s current running condition. This M50 is currently registered as non-operative but comes with several receipts, a copy of the service manual, and a clean California title in the seller’s name. Available for only two years before being replaced by the larger M65, the M50 was an inexpensive 50cc lightweight built by Aermacchi in Italy and sold by Harley-Davidson to compete with the influx of small bore Japanese cycles. Restored several years ago by the previous owner, this example has seen very little use. The odometer shows only 29 miles and was probably reset. The true mileage is unknown. The 50cc 2-stroke single is paired with a 3-speed transmission which reportedly propels the bike to a top speed of 45MPH and delivers nearly 100 MPG. The black paint and reupholstered seat present well, and all components were in working condition when the seller purchased it 5 years ago. The wheels and exhaust pipe were re-plated in 2013 and new tires added. Shifting is performed by twisting the left side grip. Details include correct grey colored Harley-Davidson logo grips. Service receipts from the restoration and a copy of the factory service manual will be included.
