Just a few days we’ve introduced the naughty sounding Benelli Sei as opposed to the more common and known Honda CBX 6 cylinder bike. Having six cylinder one after the other one in a straight line, make sure that the forces of of the first and second order are all naturally balanced. These forces are generated by the rotating masses of the crankshaft. The 6 cylinder then, is a very smooth engine and also reliable. It became BMW cars flagship motor until the EU introduced tougher CO2 emission limits that is forcing German OEMs to move toward 4 cylinder smaller capacity engines compensated with twin turbos for higher efficiency. On a motorbike the six inline engine configuration had its technical limits given by the width of the motor and more importantly by the difficulty to cool the inner cylinders in absence of water cooling. They are nevertheless unique, and come with a free revving nature and great sound. The Benelli Sei is in my opinion, the best 6 cylinder out there and I simply love those exhaust mufflers and simple and still modern lines of this 30 years old Italian exotica.
This particular sample is brand new. Not only, it was never driven, it also was never started nor was fuel ever introduced in the tank (no risk of rest then…). It is brand new !
Do I need to say more ?
Let’s hear it from the seller (translated with Google):
Benelli 750 sei. Built in 1976. Absolute new condition. This bike is never ridden. It was also never petrol in the tank. The brake fluid reservoir is virginal.
The bike comes from the private collection of Alejandro DeTomaso. It was spent directly after production there. It was always there in his museum. I purchased it from there after the bankruptcy. It was packed in a wooden crate and shipped to me in Hamburg. In this crate, it is still intact today. The tool kit is fully available. The rubber mounting the battery is boxed under the seat. A battery was never installed.
A photo shows it in the museum shortly before the sale.
The engine oil is Fills and rotates through tadelos. I started the engine nier. The carburetors have never seen gasoline. Nothing is fixed or rot .. The bench aht a minimal small crack on one edge. The tires are original of 1976.
Vehicle papers are available. For questions 0171-3689837
Please do not tell. I have no internet access at the weekend.
I solve my little car collection now on, so I offer it here.
A nationwide shipping is available. The exact shipping cost would then be determined.
The warranty expired in 1977. Therefore: private sale without any Garatie, warranty or return.
Bidders for fun get to do it with my lawyer!
