This is from the site Bring a Trailer (https://bringatrailer.com/) ...

This 1972 Harley-Davidson/Aermacchi SX350 Sprint is a street-legal scrambler based on the contemporary SS350. The original owner kept the bike through November 1996, when the second owner found it in a local classified ad. The second owner participated twice in the Portland Black Mountain Trail run in the 1990s, and the selling dealer recently acquired it after a period in storage. The bike is powered by a 350cc single-cylinder engine with a 4-speed transmission, and the selling dealer got the bike running and replaced the black vinyl seat. This SX350 is offered by Denwerks at no reserve with records from the previous owner, factory literature, and a clean Oregon title.

The 344cc single-cylinder engine is paired with a 4-speed transmission and was rated at 25 horsepower, and the bike is equipped with a kick-starter and a right-side foot shifter. The selling dealer got the bike running again after its time stored by the previous owner. The seller reports that the bike was stored without fuel, and required fresh fuel, a spark plug, an oil change, and a battery to return to running condition. A selection of older records are available from the previous owner.
