Friday bike

Found this on a Facebook group, another bike I'd never heard of.

1971 American Eagle 350

The American Eagle 350 was based off a Kawasaki 350 twin, and this particular example was listed on US Ebay. (Reached $1851, below reserve).

I've found very little information on American Eagle other than they were active in the late 60s/early 70s, and built a number of off road bikes using Italian made copies of Husqvarna engines. They also sold rebadged Laverda 750 twins (a previous Friday Bike), an example of which Evel Knevil used as a 'jumping bike'.
They sold a 150cc Laverda with replacement glassfibre bodywork, which I think had a certain charm.

If anyone has any more information, please let us know.

  1. I have the Renegade (150cc). Found the fairing and the bike separately and brought them back together.
