    1973 Harley Davidson X-90 (Aermacchi)

    I picked up a '73 Harley X-90 the other day.
    The bike is missing all the wiring including the ignition, clutch & brake cables and levers, air filter, speedo cable and some misc smalls.
    The motor is complete and turns over but the s/n does not match the frame.
    The frame is nice, no rust or cracks.
    I would like to make a rider out of it but don't what to much too much into parts I need.
    Are parts hard to find? What is the best parts source?
    Any advise would be appreciated.

    Here is a post with some parts sources - just scroll down. http://www.oldminibikes.com/forum/in...tml#post126481
    Parts can be found if you are diligent. The problem is that they are not cheap.

    Did you check the motor serial number to make sure that it is for an X-90? The serial number should start with "2D".

    Yes the s/n is correct, 2D10173H3.
    I have always liked these bikes but I don't know much about them.

    Start with a parts book and a service manual. Here is the service manual http://www.3cyl.com/hd/hdmanual.pdf

    Jim's Harley is probably the best place to start gathering parts, talk to Matt or Mike.

    Here are 2 restorations.
