I was given a task about searching for what this originally was/is. Now I've come to the conclusion that it's around 1965 maybe 165cc, although the spark plug has a different placement than what I've seen (more lean than straight up and down.) Harley Hummer 125cc.

Could anyone help me on figuring this out?

They were on an older Husqvarna, but obviously, it's not Husqvarna.

There's a set a rims, handlebars - "front suspension", engine, cover with various parts (carb).

As I am new to Harleys, I've done a little research, but still trying to figure out what they would go to and whether or not I should get into a restoration project with them. Any help would be greatly appreciate.

Upon further research, it's getting closer to a 1948 Harley 125, still there's something off about the headlight, which has equal rust as the rest, but still kind of looking for a confirmation.

I'm no expert, but I remember wrenching on something a lot like that back in 1975. It was an H-D, but made in Italy and spent most of it's life seized up. Never could get the correct parts for ignition. 1965 looks about right, and probably a 125cc.

You're thinking of the Aermacchi Harleys.

The stamped steel girder fork indicates it's a '48-'50. I think they got the Tele-Glide telescopic fork in '51. The model year is the first 2 digits in the serial number stamped on the front of the engine case near the front mount holes.
