I have a harley davidson 125 ss a 1976 model. It is in working condition. What could it be worth?

It is a LLO PP number plate and we have been told this is also worth money in itself…? Apparently it was built for the army in conjunction with another company. Any light that could be shed on this very much appreciated. Thanks.

A review:
http://motoprofi.com/motospecspictures/harley-davidson/ss_125-1976.html
It was a joint venture with italian engine builder AERMACCHI, when H-D was in bankrupt, owned by AMF

"By the mid-1960’s, Harley was the last of more than 200 American motorcycle makers to survive. But poor family management, a decline in quality and the sudden onslaught of Japanese motorcycles were all pushing it to the brink of bankruptcy. A rescue came in 1969, when the American Machine and Foundry Company purchased Harley for $21 million.
But A.M.F. saved Harley only to run it back into the ground. To its credit, A.M.F. started by pouring millions into the company. By 1973, Harley was turning out 37,000 motorcycles a year and pulling in $122 million in sales. A.M.F. forced the company into overproduction, however, further compromising quality. Harleys, which already had a reputation for leaky engines and creaky temperaments, were now almost untouchable.
In the mid-70’s, A.M.F. went too far when it replaced the Harley name with its own. Apparently unaware of the magnitude of that marketing blunder, which sent sales plummeting, A.M.F. soon began looking to unload the troubled company. In 1981, Vaughn Beals, Harley’s chief executive at the time, pulled together a dozen other company officers who found outside financing and became the new owners".
