    1978 Harley Davidson SX250?

    I just picked one of these up today, all there except for the carb. It is in decent condition, needs the seat reupholstered and a general going over as it has been sitting for about 7 years. Got it from an ex harley dealer who had it since it was new. The story is that the motor was fine, just needed a carb cleaning. The carb was lost in the service shop never to be found. Anyone know much about these?

    I would agree with you, but then we would both be wrong.

    It's like a Machiavellian 4-volume trilogy based on Hamlet senza misura with an ego-maniacal downs syndrome kid reading from a Rube Goldeberg-esque kindle.

    It probably came with a Dellorto carb. I would put on about a 32mm Mikuni and run it. At this age, you may need to replace the crank seals.

    There is a very active and helpful Aermacchi Yahoo group. Guys there with both the two and 4 strokes. Lots of info in the files section too.

    Check it out.
