Section above with the great help from Luis Saavedra in Switzerland

 

Notes:

As far as I know for a bike with NR.: AERDAV350NE*255322*DGM10944 OM

AERDAV : stands for the manufacture Aermacchi Harley Davidson

350 : is the volume of the engine in CC's

NE : Non Esportazione (not for export) ,This series was made for Italian market.

Sven Dohler mailed me and wrote NE means with Electricstarter.

N : Normal production.

255322 : is the serie nr. where the first two digits indicate the model.

DGM10944 OM : type / model approval number.

 

Vin Numbers for export models from 1970 on look like this:

3A 10406 H2 or 6A 11022 H1

also see the 1970-1980 all model table below

To indicate the model a combination of a digit and a letters was used where ;

  • 2D : indicates the X90
  • 3C : indicates the SX model
  • 3D : indicates the Z90
  • 4D : indicates the SS 175 two stroke
  • 5C : indicates the SHORTSTER model year 1972 only.
  • 6A : indicates the SS model
  • 6D : indicates the SX250 two stroke
  • 7B : indicates the 350 ERS
  • 7D : indicates the MX250 two stroke
  • 7H : indicates the SST from the late seventies
  • 1F : indicates the 1974 RR250 factory road racer
  • then you find 5 digits (in some cases only four) to indicate the serial number 1970 and up start with serial number :10000
  • then you'll find a H that stands for 70, as in 1970
  • from 1980 till 1989 the letter is J and from 1990 till 1999 the letter is K
  • then the last digit from 0 to 9 that is the year the bike is built
  • where 0 is 1970, 1 is 1971 etc..there's a more specified list at the bottom
  • the 1969 U.S. models only had SS with a 4 digit serial number (as example)

According to Todd Yancy:

250cc USA model Sprint C built 1961-1966

Sprint H built 1962-1967 also 1969 models didn't have any indication for the model year E.G.: a 1969 Rapido has MLS3250 as VIN. Pre 1969 models started with the model year, post 1969 models ended with the model year

From from a 1971 Sprint SX sales brochure :
71 Sprint SX, List Price $870.00 (in 1971 !! ) Standard Colors :
Sparkling Green Gasoline Tank, Fenders and Tail Lamp
Radiant Red Gasoline Tank, Fenders And Tail Lamp
All: Black Frame. Black Wrinkle Instrument Panel, Handlebar Clamp Cover and Upper Fork Bracket.
info was posted by Peter Perrigoon the Aermacchi E-groups
The colors for 1972 Sprints are Yellow and Blue.. but I don't know the factory names for these colors.
The frame NR.'s 191301 and 253001 are taken from my parts manual and are 100% correct.
