Harley-Davidson Other description

Up for auction is a 1971 Harley Davidson / Aermacchi Sprint SS 350.  This bike was taken down to the frame and rebuilt -- since then it has been ridden around 3000 miles however the engine is fresh.  The photo at the end (green bike) is how this bike looked like when I started rebuilding it.  During the rebuild lots of NOS parts were used.  Since the bike has some miles on it there are some nicks and a couple places where cables have rubbed but nothing major -- look closely at the photos.  I am sure I will miss something in the description so please ask questions.

Engine -- although the bike has around 3k miles since completion the engine is just back from Lancaster Sprints with a fresh rebuild -- less than 100 miles on it runs strong as it always has.  Starts in a few kicks when cold and usually first kick when it is warmed up.  This engine has a 5 speed conversion and it also has a knuckle head off a later model bike (for larger exhaust valve).  To bump up the displacement a 1mm larger piston was installed during the rebuild and it also has a mild street cam.  The exhaust is stainless steel (single sided) head pipe with a stainless megaphone.  The carb is a 30mm Dellorto also from a later model bike.  12V mzb electronic ignition.

Wheels -- when the bike was rebuilt (about 3 years ago) the hubs were polished, new bearings installed and the wheels relaced with stainless spokes and shouldered alloy rims.  At this time the brakes were also relined by vintage brake.  Tires are Avon roadrider and are in good condition.

Forks -- stock forks were rebuilt with NOS tubes and a smooth upper triple clamp.  New seals were used Bars are clip on.

Seat -- the seat started out as a stock Ducati repop seat that the pan was narrowed on and a custom cover was made for.  There are also mounts welded onto the frame to mount the seat as it does not mount in the same manner as the stock one.

Hagon rear shocks

Paint / body work -- the bike was taken down to the bare frame and the frame was powdercoated.  All of the other bodywok and tank were wet painted gloss black with ivory details and gold hand pinstripes.  The fairing is from Glass from the past as is the front fender.  Custom faring mounts were made to mount the fairing.

The rear brake light only operates from the front brake lever and this bike does not have a horn.  I have used an electronic speedometer.

The headlight does not have a high and low beam -- not really a bike to ride at night anyway.

Please ask questions before bidding.

I reserve the right to end the auction at any time.

New Delhi Auto Expo 2012 – Motorcycle Manufacturers Draw Battle Lines for World’s Second Largest Market

Mon, 09 Jan 2012

In past years, the biennial Auto Expo in India slipped under the radar while the industry was focused more on shows such as EICMA in Italy and Intermot in Germany. But with India’s middle class starting to flex its financial muscle while other markets continue to struggle, the New Delhi show is becoming much more prominent, with major OEMs positioning themselves to claim a piece of the India’s 13 million vehicles-a-year market. We’ve already looked at India-produced Royal Enfield’s new Thunderbird 500 and Hero Moto’s hybrid scooter concept which debuted at the Auto Expo, and today we’ll look at what the major international OEMs presented.
