1996 Harley Davidson MT350, 349cc. Registration number P871 HRM. Frame number 1HD6RLT14VY000290. Engine number 237931.
The MT350 motorcycle was built in the USA starting in 1993 and was derived from the earlier Armstrong MT500 built for the British army. In 1984 Armstrong-CCM then bought the rights to the Rotax engined XN Tornado from the Milan based SWM company after they had gone into liquidation. From this they developed the Armstrong MT500 and then produced about 3,500 of the bikes for the British Army between 1984 and 1987. In 1987, after the MT500 had been adopted as the standard motorcycle for NATO, Armstrong sold the rights to Harley Davidson who took over production in the United States where they produced the Harley Davidson badged MT350 version of the motorcycle. The British Army began buying this version in 1993.
The MT350 uses an electric start version of the Austrian built Rotax 348cc single cylinder, 4-valve overhead camshaft engine producing 30 bhp and 29 Nm of torque. Although slightly heavy at 162 kg for off-road use, it is a robust motorbike and is fitted with good quality Marzocchi front forks and Ohlin rear shock absorbers. The wheel rims were made by Akront, hubs and discs. bearings.
The MT350 is fitted with detachable plastic pannier boxes mounted on frames either side of the engine. It is also fitted with a plastic rifle scabbard at the back on the right-hand side.
This example saw service with 174 PRO COY Royal Military Police and 157 RLC-249 Sqn being retired in 2009 and sold by Witham Ltd, the military specialists.
It was in a sorry state and our vendor set about a full restoration, the engine and gearbox were stripped and rebuilt, as was the carb, the frame was repainted, all bearings and seals replaced, a long list is included with the sale.
The bike is now fully running and ready for green adventures. It is only being sold as another project has appeared.
Sold with the V5C.
