A beautiful high end museum restoration by Kent Riches.
Any Italian motorcycle collector worth his weight in salt will know that a Benelli racer is one of the most desirable and sought after machines… A Benelli racer rarely makes it to the open market… They are usually passed around between collectors, friends and museums… Now is your opportunity to add a highly desirable brand to your Italian collection…
This classic racer has had a no-expense spared restoration to make this piece a true museum quality motorcycle.
Flawless paint, accurate decals and badging are just some of the fine detailed work. Other features are…
Akront shouldered rims
Four leading shoe front drum brake
Marzocchi rear shocks
Dellorto flat slide carbs
Melossi velocity stacks
Sexy Rob North pressure formed exhaust
Fiberglass fairing and bodywork
The motor is fresh and ready to run
Even without being an expert, I know almost any Benelli from the previous era is desirable and collectible. With this being a 500cc GP racer, I am not surprised with the $18,000 Buy It Now price. Regardless of if you are into the classics, how can you look at those curvy legs exhaust pipes and not fantasize about the beautiful howl from that engine?
