1974 Benelli 2C

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Buying -

We love an early 1970s two-stroke here on PS but this Benelli 250cc twin is go­ing to need ev­ery ounce of that love to get it back in shape. That said it’s all there even if some of it ap­pears quite far gone. The 2C re­ally got into its stride with the disc-braked ally bar­relled model of 1976 so this 1974 drum-braked one might not be the most de­sir­able but could be pretty.

Gary says: That re­ally is a project for some­one with more spe­cial­ist tastes and the ven­dor tells us he did have some trou­ble shift­ing it and the en­gine-less rolling chas­sis you see in the back­ground. It’s hard to put a value on some­thing like this be­cause they re­ally are a niche bike and there are many sim­pler restos out there – like Yam RDS.
