Lot 264 - 1974 Harley-Davidson X-90
|Result||Sold - £1,176|
Harley-Davidson's X90 mini-bike was originally sold to tempt young owners into Harley ownership under the banner of 'the great American freedom machine' but Despite the H-D logos this X90 is, in fact, an Italian bike, the only connection with Milwaukee coming from the business deal brokered between Harley-Davidson and Aermacchi back in 1959 which produced a range of Harley-Davidson-badged Italian two-stroke tiddlers.
Manufactured from 1973 to 1975, Harley-Davidson, at the time, were looking for ways to increase their range and attract riders to the brand, riders whom they hoped would later progress to buying the larger bikes for which the company are famous. These entry-level bikes launched in the early 70s comprised a series of two-stroke singles, stylishly presented with trail bike styling, in capacities from 90cc to 250cc, with 125cc and 175cc variants in between.
This example in black has been in storage for the past five years after being used as a family toy, Spare parts are also included with this X-90 as is the V5 and, we are told, it is ready to be started up and used. These cheap and usable bikes are a fantastic entrance into biking whatever the age and are certainly alot of fun to use.
