The dump trucks of the motorcycle kingdom. Definitely off-topic. What you had was an Aermacchi, sold by H-D in North America with their sticker on it. I'm all good with folks here talking about their TR3s and MGs (I had a bugeye Sprite and an MGB), but not so much about Ford Edsels or Chrysler New Yorkers.
