Beginning in the early 1960s, Harley-Davidson produced a line of smaller bikes that were actually Italian-made Aermacchi motorcycles that were redesigned and branded as Harleys. AMF continued to produce these models until 1978, when the division was sold to Italian motorcycle company Cagiva. The 65 cc M-65, the 100 cc Baja, and the 125 cc Rapido models were all produced by Harley-Davidson until 1972. The 250 cc Sprint model cycle that was produced throughout most of the 1960s was essentially reintroduced as the 350 cc SX-350 model in 1971.
This page is intended for the Harley-Davidson Aermacchi M-50 and M-65 single two stroke engines. Included will be some history, service and repair manuals, tool list, parts resources and links to social media and a broader audience. As time allows additional information can be included with a focus on repair technics, alternative parts and non OEM tools considerations. It is hoped that good information will help the community and keep a piece of history alive and active.
