  • Probably won't ever even be a project

    I happened to mention in a FB group that an Aermacchi is on my bucket list, and the concept I had in mind was a fairly radical custom based on the final Harley 350 double-cradle frame. A guy in Terre Haute said he had a spare '73 350 SS frame that I could have for free. I found another guy who was willing throw it on his truck on his way through there and haul it to KC. Yesterday, he texted me this photo. It should arrive this weekend. I am fairly sure it will probably just hang in my rafters at least until I retire. Then, when I finally have the free time, the cost and availability of Aermacchi parts will be obscene. But in the meantime, I'll have fun looking at it and scheming...

      That is a ridiculously cool-looking frame. Would you build it up as a resto project, or use the frame as the basis for a custom?

        Very much a "budget bitsa" custom.

          Just for the record, I did get this project going. A combination of Suzuki GS750, 400 Bandit and 650 Katana components and I've got a roller. I'm ready to rip the rear cylinder off a Ducati 620 motor to make a 309cc horizontal single — once I get my Bultaco finished, that is.

          That last photo is a random tank and seat I had resting on it for visualization.

            Looks like that'll be a fun little bike. I especially enjoy the mix matching of parts from other bikes. Good job so far 👍👌
