    It was an Italian Aermacchi engine. Most Aermacchis had a single cylinder horizontal engine. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and when fitted into an original Italian frame was very good looking.

    I'd want that much to take it away.
    As TwoOfUs said... Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.....
    Well, I must have two glass eyes, it looked fractionally better in the other frame.

    Who is Bridget Bardot? :)

    In 1964 Honda named their 90cc motorbike the C200 because it was much faster than the 200cc tiger cub!

    Harley Davidson bought the aermacchi company in the early sixties, they then re-badged the aermacchi's as HDs

    Later the Aemacchi factory produced 2 strokes, also badged as HDs

    I assume the one in the sports frame is 4st though the carb and exhaust ports appear 2st

    John Hartle & Renzo Pasolini raced them with some success in the late '50s / early '60s. I remember seeing and hearing them on track.

    There used to be a aeramacchi Harley Davidson dealer in Southampton at the old millbrook railway station, I stopped there often to droll over the bikes ( Brit and jap stuff too ) not that I could have afforded any. Lawton and Wilson ltd
