|Harley Davidson began development on a competitive motocross bike with the hopes of
entering the lucrative MX scene. The early "works" bikes went through a lot of changes.
Marty Tripes and Rex Staten were the most recognizable pros to campaign these bikes at a
professional level. Tight budgets and a lack of commitment on behalf of Harley Davidson
doomed their chances of a successful off road program.
The 1978 Harley Davidson 250MX was the only production model produced and was greeted
with great deal of scepticism by the American Consumer. Very few were manufactured and
they were never produced again.
This bike is for the most part unrestored. There has been some minor paint touch up to
make it more presentable. The original "Harley Davidson" fenders came with the bike but
were faded. They have been stored away until a decent process exist to restore them.
