No Reserve: 1972 Harley-Davidson/Aermacchi Sprint SS350

This 1972 Harley-Davidson/Aermacchi Sprint SS350 is unrestored, and was purchased new in Texas, where it was ridden by the original owner for a few months prior to being passed to his nephew. The bike was then stored for many years before it was moved to Oregon. The selling dealer recently acquired the bike from the third owner, said to have been a motorcycle collector and former Isle of Man TT competitor with Ducati. The bike has been off the road since 2012 and is now offered by the selling dealer at no reserve with the factory tool roll, keys, and a clean Oregon title.

The 344cc single-cylinder engine is paired with a 4-speed transmission and was rated at 25 horsepower. The bike is equipped with a kick-starter and a right-side foot shifter. The seller notes that the choke works, but is binary in operation and cannot be feathered out as the bike warms up. As a result the seller recommends allowing the bike to warm up fully before riding.
