    I got a call from a guy who bought a ’68 HD-Aermachi from a friend. Since I don’t know much about this bike, I’m appealing to anyone on the list who could share some info. All I know about this particular bike is it’s a 125cc two-stroke, and it’s black with white stripes on the tank. Any info about what brought about this unholy collaboration, how long it lasted, any good/bad/indifferent things about this bike, etc. would be appreciated.

    This guy is going to call me back on Tues after work, and I’d like to be able to tell him something. He says the bike runs, but he’s not sure if he wants to restore it or leave it the way it is.

    Hi Robert:

    I remember the thing as a rather weak attempt by H-D to get in on the dirt bike scene, which didn’t last long. Never saw one on a race track, although I vaguely recall one entering the Baja 1000 way back when. They are rare, I’m sure, but have no great “history.” If it runs, though, it is still a motorcycle!!
