I posted a message on the benelli forum
The bike was found in the garage of my father
A lot of parts are missing (carburettor) suspension ..ect
Now I don't now what to do .. Is it worth to fix it ... Are spare parts a
problem? Maybe is better to throw it away as old metal and buy a new one modern one
The only think I wanted to find was a small bike for my son of 10
Is there somebody interested in the parts I have

Hello, we are in need of some Benelli parts to finish a restoration. The bike in question is a 1970 250cc horizontal single with a 5 speed gear box. I believe it's called a Super Sport.

Benelli Mini bike
Email: funmarlin at aol dot com
message: My son, Dylan, recently bought this 1970 Benelli showing only 513 miles at a garage sale in Burlington, Iowa. Unfortunately, we don't know the cc, the model or any particulars about this cycle. The tag says the bike was made in August 1970 and the frame number is 61520. The engine number is 61947. As far as we can tell, a set of points would put it back on the trail. Any help would be appreciated. Our e-mail is: funmarlin at aol dot com

It appears very similar to Benelli Dynamo Trail 1970 but the kickstart setup differs.

My name is Dave Griffith and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I have owned a 1970 Benelli Buzzer 65cc Minibike for many years. It is still running, although it is in need of repairs. I am seeking the following items.....

1. A set of piston rings.
2. Kick start return spring.
3. Throttle assembly.
4. I also require other minor parts including a chain guard, a seat, plastic cover which is attached to the carby.

I do not know anyone else who owns a Benelli in Melbourne and I would like to know where I may obtain the above parts. Is there a Benelli owners club?? What are these bikes worth?? I would appreciate any info that you may have. Hope you can help.

You want part I have them! I have 1.5 1972 650-S Tornado's, both engines are fine one was in a fire and the front is missing, and the other is fully complete. What I don't have are items such as rubbers :), seats, back tail light sections and silencers. I do have 4 people interested in some of the parts but no money yet. One engine is going to be broken down and the other is going to stay as is for now. So if your in need of some thing email me, if I don't have I just may be able too find it for you. And if you are in need of silencers for the 650 or a total complete exhaust system to that 750 sei. I have one setting around and if that one is gone I can get one for you, so send me an email with your needs and wants.

Hi everyone-- I have a 1978 Benelli sei 750 and i am having a Charging problem. Has anyone used a universal rectifier/voltage regulator {Voltpak is not making them for the benelli any longer}. Has any one used one from RICKS MOTORSPORT ELECTRICS and if so which one was used} Any other source would be appriciated or stock parts are ok also. Is there a trouble shooting spec sheet for the alternator /generator,rectifier ,voltage regulator.
When i start mine the charge light goes out at about 1200rpm's and the lights get a little brighter when reved but it only charges from 10.5 volts at idle to about 12.5 when a meter is used accross the battery terminals. The battery goes right down as this sis not enough to keep the battery charged. Please e-mail me back at juwa1 at aol dot com . Thanks Steve
P.S. I would like to ride it for a longer distance before the snow flies.

Hey, I have been reading a lot of peoples WANTS in your website, which might I say is terrific, and I just wanted to let you, and everyone else know that I have parts for these old Benelli Bikes!!!!! From the 50cc Buzzer to the 900, I have the parts. The company I work for, Cosmopolitan Motors, used to be the American importer for Benelli and bought out the entire parts inventory of them for these older models. SOOOO, if you got needs for these bikes, email me at Pugmyster at aol dot com , I hope I can be of service to some people, we have parts books for each model also.

To convert from the ridiculous duplex drive chain fitted originally to the Benelli 900sei, you need the 16 tooth front sprocket from a Yamaha DT250MX (569-16) and the rear sprocket from the same Yamaha DT250MX (855-47) if you want the 47 toothsprocket, or the rear sprocket from the XJ600 Diversion (855-48) if you want the 48 tooth sprocket.

These sprockets require a 520 pitch chain, I'm unsure of the number of links but if you buy a 130 link chain it's not much more expensive than the shorter ones and easy to cut to size.

In order to fit the locking plate on the front sprocket drive shaft, you have to make 3 spacer tubes, one large to fit the shaft and two small ones to fit the two bolts.

Myself I own a 2001 Gsxr 1000 Suzuki and an 1983 Honda Cr 125; I just finished restoring.

My father has owned a 1967, 250 Benelli Barracuda since new and it requires some refacing after spending one year of its life in a field. We decided to restore the old girl. The machine starts immediately, contains all original parts, nothing lost, with only 1200 original miles. Basically I am going to restore it to a new or better appearance. I wish to re-kindle some riding interest beyond pedaling for my father and I know this to be the ticket!

Can you tell me roughly what its worth, and furnish me with links for replacing stickers and actual photos of machine as new. Also any advice or recommendations about having chrome work for the tank done. i.e....who to look acquire for this job.

I want this machine to stay in our family for years; any advice on preservation after its done would be fantastic too.

Basically and model specific information or help would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you! Please contact me at the following email address & thank you in advance ostranderjoeseph at hotmail dot com

If this is posted and read by others, please feel free to contact me also!

Have not been able to locate the frame number yet. Looking at photos of bikes that I found on 'Benelli Club Nederland' site, I compared it to a 1958 125cc 4T. (The headlight bracket, rear fender, and the front down-tube part of the frame that connects to the engine, and the engine configurations all match). The tank on the bike, however, looks larger, and the paint scheme looks like that of a '68 Sprite/'67 Riverside/'65-'67 MotoBi Imperiale. Are the tanks on these motorcycles interchangeable, or could a past owner just painted the original tank to match the later models? Mine also has the seat strap that the rear passenger would hang onto while riding; did not notice this on the 4T. The headlight, hanging by the wires down to the front axle, looks like it does not have any switches, but does have a square, clouded-over instrument gauge on it. Is this a speedo or volt-meter?

Restored, or in it's present 'a truck must have run over it' condition, what could this be worth?

I found this bike at Paul's M/C Salvage in Hiram , Ga., just in case the previous owner is out there.

Hello,
Ran across this site and have to ask a couple of questions.
In 1966 2 of my buddies and I bought 3 Montgomery Ward Riverside 125 cc motorcycles made by Benelli, they were blue in color. Does anyone know where I might buy one? Where can I get parts for it,manuals etc. and are there any clubs for these little bikes??
Any and all info is very much appreciated.

Biker, I just came across your Benelli page. I see that there haven't been too many entries on it lately, but I thought you might want to set up this link as he has a lot of Benelli parts available. It has been perhaps 4 months since I got the list from him. I hope it will help someone. Another good source is www.roadandrace.com.au . These guys are in Australia, and do a good job for owners of older Ducati, Benelli and other European bikes, especially singles. Enjoy! Dennis Martin

January 16, 2001
For sale. My 1971 125cc Sport Special was imported from Bari Italy. This bike was given to me by my uncle after sitting under a sheet of plastic for 15 years. The motor was re-build but like I said, it sat for 15 years untouched. There is a small leak coming from the center gasket but nothing to worry about, all other gaskets have been replaced recently. The bike itself has been completely restored from the ground up including re-chroming of parts.

I hate to do this but I would like to sell this beautiful bike with the intention of getting another bigger bike.

I own a '69 FULL RACE Barracuda. This bike was used for hill climbing in the early '70s claiming several titles. It's been handed down to me by family and friends, and now I'm contemplating a restoration to its modified state. What I'm looking for is the shop manual, {I have the original parts and price manuals} motor gaskets, a rebuild kit for the carburetor or complete carburetor.

From what I understand the motor was built by a shop in Daytona, the red line on the tach is at 13,000 RPM. The swing arm is still stock, this being run before the thought of extending swing arms.

Before being stored away 15 years ago it ran very strong and very loud with open header and megaphone.

Any information on this motor and parts availability will be greatly appreciated!

I just found your site after numerous searches for Benellis in the past. I have a 1970 Dynamo Trail, or what I have been told is a Dynamo Trail with only 132.5 original miles on it. It is almost complete with only the tools, manual and original air filter missing. The tires are in like new condition, the exhaust pipe hasn't blued from heat, the gas line hasn't discolored from fuel flowing through it, and the seat is in very good condition without any tears or rips, just some slight scuff marks. Sadly the gas tank needs to be cleaned of the internal rust and chemically lined, the headlight housing to be rechromed, and the front forks scratched. But the bike is in remarkable condition after 28 years.

I include a picture for you to post since this may be one of very few such bikes left in this condition. I am also interested in selling this bike, since I am not an avid collector and enjoy riding more than polishing.

1968 Montgomery Ward Riverside 250cc
I had the above motorcycle (Benelli import) back in 1980 when I was 15 in San Diego, CA..The bike was almost mint (original tires, paint, onboard tool kit & low mileage...around 200-300). I would sneak the bike out at night ( no license, registration, insurance or helmet) & once I got it started it was a running machine even though the gear shift was on the wrong side. But it was a bear to start, probably tight from being new, & more times than not I would abandon the kick start to do a rolling jump start (Hey I was only 15!).I know I have at least one picture of the Riverside, but lost its location when I left San Diego at 16.

Hi everyone,
I've just started an email list for the Benelli and MotoBi marques. After a little testing and fine tuning this morning the list seems to be up an running OK, so I'm letting everyone know that it is available.

To subscribe you'll send your message to:

majordomo at list.sirius.com

The list has both individual and digest (accumulation of messages issued as one message) modes, so the body of the message will read either:

subscribe benelli-motobi youremailaddresshere

or

subscribe benelli-motobi-digest youremailaddresshere

depending on which version you want.

As with my other 6 lists, I'll be keeping the new list closed to non-member posts which has proven to be effective in keeping the spammers out. I'll be letting Carl Paukstis know about the list so he can include it in the November issue of the mailing list roundup.

Hello Ron,

I paid $300 for my 5 speed. It wasn't complete or real nice, but did come with a NOS fuel tank and a spare 4 speed engine.

I have a small list of MotoBi/Benelli owners that exchange email in an informal list - they post something to me (once and awhile) and I send it back out to everyone else. There are several very knowledgeable people on the list (including Peter Oort who runs the Dutch MotoBi Amici web site). If you or anyone else wants to have your name added to that just drop me a line. I think I can assure you your mailbox won't be overflowing if you do!

I've been looking for Benelli sites for two weeks, finding nothing. I then found this place, cool. I just picked up a 1968 360cc cafe racer painted screaming yellow and missing a couple of little things. It has clip-ons, racing tires, and came with parts and service manuals. I'm looking for someone to talk to who can give a little tech. support. I'm not the one who took it apart so I'm not real sure how it goes back together. The body more closely resembles the Montgomery Ward Mojave but with some small differences. Anybody that would like to lend their know-how I would be greatly indebted
Thanks

I am looking for fork dust seals for a 250/4. Also looking for motor parts for a 900 Sei (this one is turbo charged.)

Hi, Just noticed some postings for Benelli parts. I have three possible sources. Cosmopolitan Motors used to be the distributor. They have some parts left. fax number 215-956-9654, attn Jimmy.

The best luck I have had so far is with James Dennis. His email address is Motobi at tradenet.net. He buys and sells Benelli parts. He has been a great help.

Another person I found was Dave Moot who bought up an old dealers supply of parts. His email address is MWeinerman at aol.com
