1961 Aermacchi 250cc Model C

Ernesto did it again, he brought another very cool Italian single and won Bike of the Month.

This bike is heavily modified from the orignial. The engine and frame are Aermacchi, but the rest is custom. Including: custom tank with fuel gauge, custom seat, Ceriani fork, Work Performance shocks, stainless exhust system, Grimeca front brake, 12 volt electrical system conversion and an electronic ignition.

Aermacchi produced small engines for Harley Davidson. This model is from the pre Harley era. Everyone enjoys Ernesto's bikes. Thanks again Ernesto for bringing another winner. We may have to modify our rules if he keeps it up.
