Lot #2000 - The 1965 Harley-Davidson catalog described this M50 Sport Cycle as "not a toy but a lot more fun" and aimed sales at younger riders by suggesting it as "a way to come and go as you please without asking for the family wheels." Manufactured in Italy by Aermacchi, the M50 was H-D's $225 response to the wave of inexpensive scooters and small motorcycles coming in from Japan. Only marketed for two years (1965 and 1966), this example has been completely restored to showroom condition and rides on Goodyear 2.50-17 4-ply tires. The 50-cc 2-stroke single cylinder engine delivers over 100 mpg while its twin mechanical drum brakes assure safe stops.
