Replacement Starter Solenoid for 1973 Harley Davidson/Aermacchi SS350 Srint

My Sprint just quit running in the middle of a ride last week.  I pulled over, checked that the petcock was on, and hit the starter a couple time.  The second time I hit the starter button the starter would not stop running.  I disconnected the battery to stop the starter motor.   I took the bike back to my shop and identified a bad solenoid.  I found a replacement made for a  Suzuki on Ebay for $17 with free shipping.  It bolts into the existing wholes and works great.

Old solenoid.

New solenoid installed.

To access solenoid by removing three screws and taking off the left side cover.
