    Default Aermacchi 350 Ala d’Oro

    Anyone have any experience of buying one of these and knows what I should be checking before parting with any cash?

    I haven't seen one for years. They used to be very popular for race bikes in the 60's and 70's.

    I just want to say a public “thank you “ to Jim Rodger for all his help and advice re the Aermacchi and also to Bob for suggesting that I contact him. I am now the proud owner of a 1972 Aermacchi 350 Ala d’Oro replica which I will pick up on Thursday. Photo to follow once I have it home.

    In Theory, Practice and Theory are the same. In Practice they are different.

    Some Aermacchi history here. Apparently there were only ever 110 genuine Ala d'Oro 350s. Presumably the replicas are based on SS or SX models.

    I really don’t know too much about it’s history other than it was imported from Italy around 2016/17, the engine and gearbox were rebuilt and modified by Cleve Brightman and the guy who I bought it from acquired it in 2017 and never actually rode it. It has done one race at Cadwell Park, I think, since the rebuild and went to the Isle of Man to do a parade lap but the rider hurt his back and never rode it. It’s had quite a lot of money spent on it prior to me buying it, so will, hopefully, be reliable. I bought it to do the Festival of1000 Bikes at Mallory Park next year so will need to do a couple of track days to set it and me up!
