Harley-Davidson & Aermacchi
In 1967, Harley-Davidson affiliated with the Italian motorcycle and aircraft company Aermacchi S.p.A. of Varese, Italy to introduce the 250cc Sprint H, ERS Sprint (CR/CRTT). The single-cylinder Aermacchi models used either a 4-stroke undersquare (long-rod) engine, or an oversquare (short-rod) 2-stroke engine.

The 250cc Ala Verde motorcycle was built by Aermacchi after Harley Davidson invested money in the company buying up 50% of the stock. Aermacchi was originally an aircraft company. The Ala Verde model first came out in the late 1950's designed by Aermacchi's chief engineer, Alfredo Bianchi. Ala Verde means "green wing" and the motorcycle is considered a sport roadster. It has an 85 mph top speed and excellent handling with styling to match. We bought this 1962 Ala Verde in Imola, Italy in the late 1990's in restored condition, only making a few minor improvements to it since then. It has an air cooled OHV horizontal single cylinder engine with approx 19 HP. It has a 5-speed gearbox.

Other versions of Aermacchi Harley-Davidson's small-displacement two-stokes were the M50 and M50-S 50cc scooters. The early Aermacchi Harleys had a distinctive "Italian" look, which immediately differentiated them from the earlier Milwaukee two-strokes which had more of a traditional "Harley" look.
